XP Police autochk.dll remnant

Recommended Posts

I got infected by XP Police and used SAS to remove it. That worked, but now every time I reboot I get a rundll error: can't load windows/system32/autochk.dll. I don't know who is calling for it. How can I get rid of this?

You most likely have an entry in your system startup that references autochk.dll....similar to the one below

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [autochk] rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\autochk.dll,_IWMPEvents@16

Download/install Hijackthis (Trend Micro Hijack This) from the link below.


- Run a scan with Hijackthis.

- Locate the 04 Run entry that references autochk.dll (like the one above)

- Check mark ONLY that entry.

- Click on Fix Checked located at the bottom left of the Hijackthis window. Let Hijackthis remove that entry.

- Close Hijackthis and reboot your computer.

The problem should be resolved.
