Those autochk.exe files appear to be from Adobe.
Usually a part of cfusion. The newest one is more than 3 years old.
I would ignore the Spybot detection.

Thanks, askey127. Really appreciate all the help. I don't know if this site accepts donations, but I'd be happy to make small one if there is a way to.

tentakool,
We are just about done.
You will need a new Adobe Reader for that machine. We removed the obsolete one.
--------------------------------------------------------
Download and Install the newest version of Adobe Reader for reading pdf files
There are security vulnerabilities in earlier versions. All versions numbered lower than 11.0.04 are vulnerable.
Go HERE to download the Installer AdbeRdr11004_en_US.exe .
Save the file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.
Always be careful to UNCHECK any offer for toolbars, helpers or other "partner" Free programs
After the new Reader is installed, Open Adobe Reader XI, as it is called, and OK the license.
Click on Edit and select Preferences.
On the Left, click on the Javascript category and Uncheck Enable Acrobat Javascript.
Click on the Security (Enhanced) category
Uncheck Automatically trust sites from my Win OS security zones, and under Protected View, click on Files from potentially unsafe locations.
Click on the Trust Manager category and Uncheck Allow opening of non-PDF file attachments with external applications.
Click the OK button
When it asks if you are sure you want to make changes to Advanced Security Preferences, answer Yes.
When it finishes, you can remove the Installer from your desktop.
