"Detection name";"Virus identified Win32/Patched.CJ"
"Result";"Object is white-listed (critical/system file that should not be removed)"
Have done Malwarebytes Scan and no luck as well as Windows Search and Destroy!
Read many forums but nothing seems to work
Please help getting a little desperate
"Object is white-listed (critical/system file that should not be removed)".... You have a critical Windows system file that got infected... removing it without taking the proper steps would make your system unbootable. In short you need to do it manually. This is why that file is whitelisted.
Using your Windows CD... type SFC /SCANNOW on the run line to see if Windows will correct the issue for you or not. If not you will have to make the replacement from the Recovery Console that you can get to after booting from the CD.
Also carry out a forum search on atapi.sys.

The reboot and the actions around should "touch" only system files, not your data. This infection should be removed from your computer as soon as possible (not lose data, sending spam, be part of server attack (DOS), etc.)
