Malware keeps coming back - worm.autorun autochk.dll


Recommended Posts

I've cleaned this several times with MBAM, Trend Micro AV, and Spybot, but it keeps coming back every time I reboot. Here are my log files:

A couple of other symptoms include: SystemRestore only sits there after selecting a restore point and clicking Next; I get an Access Denied error when trying to apply or save changes from MSCONFIG; I have lost the ability to set JPG files as the desktop background; I cannot run regedit or task manager under the originally infected user but can under the administrator login (both users are admins on the local machine).

I have checked local policies and don't see anything that would cause this. With over 15 years in Windows OS support and IT admin, I'm comfortable with editing the registry and have deleted several instances of the autochk.dll as well as others. I have yet to find the specific key or file that is causing the files to be recreated. I believe this virus is creating new keys/files on each shutdown that are not identified by MBAM or the other programs. I have run the three programs in Safe Mode as well and still experience the same problem.

This one is kicking my tail and I'd appreciate any help I can get.
