I had a computer infected with the Win 7 Antispyware 2012 rogue anti-spyware program which i thought i had removed by following guides on this site. The problem i have is that windows 7 can not see my network devices. The "Computer Browser" service will not start, failing with Error 1060.
I have run scans with malwarebytes which finds nothing, but when i ran a scan with aswMBR it said i was infected with the Win32:Sirefef-FQ virus.
Im not getting redirects with google searches but do get the doubleclick.net showing on the back button in internet explorer.

Any help with this would be much appreciated

Thanks Pintglass

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.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
