I've been infected with viruses.

I realized it when I've been redirected to another website(CC Search)by Google after Google search. After searching about this CC Search, I decided to install anti-virus to remove some viruses.

I've tried installing KasperSky but it seemed that it couldn't start. While downloading other Anti-Virus software, my internet connection was "cut-off" half-way. This happens too when I am download other programs too.

It was then I started downloading using FreeDownloadManager so I could pause the download and continue after rebooting my computer and my internet connection was back.(The connection remains for about 5minutes after starting download) Therefore I restarted for 3-4 times before successfully downloading the anti-virus(HitMan and Spyware Doctor) and TDSS killer. Although infections were found and removed, after rebooting my computer, Windows Defender found this virus trojan, Win32/Sirefef.O.

Windows Defender prompted me to remove it and after clicking "Remove All", an error occurred:

Error encountered:
Code 0x80508017. Some actions couldn't be applied to potentially harmful items. The items might be stored in a read-only location. Delete the files or folders that contains the items or, for information on removing read-only permissions from files and folders, see Help and Support.


This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Remove this software immediately.



Will someone help me with this?

Problems faced: Redirected to CC Search and Trojan:Win32/Sirefef.O found.

Edit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum, due to the absence of any malware logs. ~ Animal
