Hi :thumbsup:.

Some background on that file: http://www.pvegetah.com/tag/autovbs/

The fact that there is a search for the file and it cannot be found...leads me to conclude that you have removed the malware item itself, but a startup prompt for it remains on your system.

To eliminate that, you can try to use the tool AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

Download and install Autoruns and then go to the Logon tab. If you see an item that appears to relate to running that script, you can either disable or remove it.

To be safe, I would temporarily disable any such item initially...then reboot and see if the same error message appears. If not, then it's reasonable to conclude that you have disabled the proper entry and you can then just delete it via Autoruns.
