Use the tools here to clean the infection

Since you know the directories, create an application control policy to stop files from executing from those locations.

Have you tried a second opinion scanner such as malwarebytes or hitman pro?

Thanks brian for your responce but this is not happened on sigle machine so I cant use malwarebytes. This spreads on multiple machines and I wanted to do something which can do centralized solution for all machines.

Than your best bet is to use an adc policy to lock down those directories.

Could you please PM me your Tracking numbers?

Secondly in your case, it is advisable to follow few important steps:

1) Make sure all these machines are Patched with ALL Latest MS security patches and service packs.

2) Make sure the machines are installed with the Latest Symantec virus definitions.

3) Disable the Autorun Feature on the machine.
