Our family has two computers infected by a virus called "Trojan horse Generic 17.YZP" which is infecting c:\\windows\system32\autochk.exe according to AVG. I have ran ComboFix.exe and it says that the infected autochk.exe file was removed and replaced but when I re-run AVG as to the c:\\windows\system32 folder the same autochk.exe file is still infected. ComboFix created a ComboFix.txt file loging its scan.
Does anyone have an answer.

At this point, I think this one is best left to the experts, so I'm going to refer you to the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum.

Please read the Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help in cleaning your computer. Once complete, post a link back to this forum so the HJT team knows what we have tried.

Please be patient as the HJT team is quite busy sometimes and it may take a day or even a few for someone to pickup your log but someone will get back to you.
