I had a spyware/malware issue and I used Malwarebytes to remove.  I have symantec anti-virs protection 10.1 installed and it keeps finding karna.dat in the auto-protect and keeps cleaning it.  The file pops up every 5 seconds by symantec that it cleaned it.  how do I fix this issue?

Download and update malwarebytes from www.malwarebytes.com
Once updated, reboot into Safe Mode (F8 at startup) and run the program. That should clear the message.
