It simply means that some information in your system restore volume is corrupt and can't be read.
That's all it means.
To fix the problem, disable system restore, reboot and then enable system restore again.

What I find strange is the reporting of image types as archives, but there is every possibility the file might be corrupt whilst not being an archive.

However, Files that can't be scanned are just that, not an indication they are suspicious/infected, just unable to be scanned. So you could leave them in situe and just ignore the list of files that can't be scanned.

 Re: Boot Scan says Error 42125, System Volume Information, Zip Archive Corrupt

When I have gotten the corrupt data message from AVAST!, it is because of data from anti-malware programs (in my case, SuperAntiSpyware & MalwareBytesAntiMalware) that AVAST! can't read....HARMLESS data.

If you turn off RESTORE and REBOOT, you will delete all of your RESTORE POINTS, and you won't be able to RESTORE to any points PRIOR to when you deleted them!

Words to the wise (I have failed to do this too many times myself!!):
         You're in a hurry to fix something on your computer...
             Don't just try the first thing you see... If you are using forums,
             get a few other opinions... The "fix" might make things
             worse...  No one checks the forums for accuracy!!!!

    If you are getting fixes from a reliable source, the software publisher,
        hardware manufacturer, etc-
BE DAMN SURE ANY FIXES YOU PERFORM ARE FOR YOUR SPECIFIC PROBLEM-
        NOT: Well that seems like my problem...

  From a digital stumbler who has made the above mistakes too many times!!!
