Bought new HP laptop. It has ATI folder for graphics. I ran a virus scan and it detected the following:

AEM.Server.dll Trojan.MSIL.Agent.Coej C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core-Static

Virus app removes above, but reloads again on reboot.

Please advise.

This is most definitely a false alarm because ATI does not provide their graphic drivers with viruses or trojans. Right click the file and add it to the exclusion list or open the antivirus and add the whole folder to the Exclusion list to prevent the scanning module to add it to the Quarantine or delete it.
