I ve tried numerous anti-virus, adware and malware removal programs. They detect it and say they re removing it. And when process is finished and computer restarts it is still there. There are two drivers .dll in my Sysnative called Netutils2016.dll. Now I suspect these are the problem. I ve tried to remove and delete them and they say it s not possible due to them being open in another program winlogon.exe. Thanks for any help

Download from here http://www.avg.com/gb-en/avg-rescue-cd AVG rescue disk and burn it to a CD. You may need a working computer if yours is badly infected. Boot off the CD and follow the prompts. After that your computer should be clean. As you are booting off the CD all the files on the hard drive are accessible to the AV engine
Once your computer is up and running I would also download Malwarebytes antimalware from bleeping computers

Run it to check for any malware that AVG missed

Jim:
Run your antivirus program in Safe Mode.
This boots the computer with minimum features and if you are lucky the virus will be dormant and not be able to protect itself from deletion.
Old trick!
ari:
Use Linux live to remove it!

Run avast boot time scan

Or kaspersky boot time scan you can run a million scans but until you run one from Linux you aren't doing any good!

You can't remove a running program

Barnes:
Try Microsoft's free AV. I will be astonished it it doesn't do the job. See link.
Francis:
Norton Power Tools will clear it – and they are free.
