Removing Generic.bfr!q (api-ms-win-core-misc-l1-1-032.dll)

I have 2 instances of this virus (only thing on my computer) that are associated with the file api-ms-win-core-misc-l1-1-032.dll in the All Users and ProgramData folders.  McAfee said it would remove it after a reboot but it does not. 

I have tried to manually remove these by doing the following, but it keeps coming back.

  1. I disable Auto Recovery
  2. Logged in using Safe mode and deleted both instaces of api-ms-win-core-misc-l1-1-032.dll
  3. Searched registry for api-ms-win-core-misc-l1-1-032 and deleted what I found.
  4. Restarted in Normal and it reappears every time.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

You don't state your system or service pack details but I would imagine that something as simple as temporarily disabling System Restore might do the trick.
