how to remove "trojan.AutoIT!IK" virus


I have Windows server 2008 and have Kaspersky enterprise anti-virus, recently a virus named "trojan.AutoIT!IK" has infected the server. The Kaskersky can not recognize the virus and can't remove it.

Have you tried protector plus, Some guys claim they got their systems clean after using it!
