Hello All.

I have been infected with the Trojan Sirefef. And I can't seem to remove it with the normal means(Ad-Aware, IObit Malware Fighter, Microsoft Security Essentials, etc...)

I currently have Vista 64bit running on a Sony Vaio laptop.

Some of the problems I'm experiencing: Obviously Microsoft Security Essentials is continuously saying that I have threats located on my PC, despite me removing them and restarting. ALso My web browsers, Crome, Firefox or IE are having problems as well. Surfing is very limited and searching for help on google has been a nousance. I would click a link and it would redirect me to another page, something like 95p.com or something similar. My computer has also been a bit slower than it usually is. Other than that though there are no other problems. I mainly use this machine as a studio for recording and making music, and while all of my data is stored on 2 external drives, I'm worried about using them for fear of contamination. I'm fairly new to fighting malware and spyware, as you probably noticed from my list removal programs so any help that could lead me to SALVATION would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
