I'd really appreciate any help at all with this. AVG resident shield keeps picking up something called Trojan Horse Dropper.Generic2.CFAL it doesnt seem to have hindered the computer's performance at all (which makes me think I should be more worried) but keeps flashing up regularly on the resident shield most often listing the Process Name as C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe and Process ID as 3472, however it does display others on occasion. AVG tells me that the file is stored within C:\Windows\System32\autochk.exe and is whitelisted and so cant be removed. SpyBot spotted it and told me the same thing, Malwarebytes didnt spot it. After failing to remove it I attempted a system restore however windows told me that it was unable to do this as the filesystem was corrupt.
Being a good little boy I followed the preparation guide as per the forum post however I encountered major problems. DDS doesnt work at all, it brings up a text file of symbols, the only recognisable English is "This program cannot be run in DOS mode". I do have AutoCAD installed on this computer and it seems the .scr filetype is associated to this program - could this be the reason. After 3 attempts I moved onto GMER. 1st GMER attempt brought up Windows popup saying "GMER.exe has stopped working" and had a check for solutions option, after 30 seconds. 2nd GMER attempt - ran for around 5 mins then bluescreened and forced a shut down restart. 3rd GMER attempt was the same as the first.
What can I do now? I do have the bluescreen info as displayed by windows upon restart if thats any help? As I said any assistance would be gratefully received as this is a work PC in my families business and I'm worried about this horse mining company information.
