How to remove the pdf:urlmal-inf[trj] virus?
When I create a PDF file from my particular DOCX file, it gets infected with the virus. However, creating a new DOCX file and creating a PDF form that doesn't get infected by the virus. I have tried to solve the issue with Malwarebytes but it didn't work. Only AVG and AVIRA antivirus detect this malware but rather than neutralising it, it is removing the file.Is there any way to remove this malware manually?

Test these URLs with e.g. VirusTotal.
