Last night I got Sirefef.AC and .AH on my laptop which runs Vista. I know what it is that I am infected with from MSE. My first thought was to go back to a system restore point. The only one available was about 20 minutes earlier, but that should have been sufficient, however it didn't remove the virus. MSE keeps reporting it and then reporting that it cleaned it, but it doesn't really get rid of it. The virus will let me download but won't let me install MalwareBytes. I Googled the problem for awhile, but couldn't find coherent instructions for removing the virus. Help.

Launch it.Click on change parameters-Select TDLFS file system

Click on "Scan".Please post the LOG report(log file should be in your C drive)

Please download GMER from here(doesnot work on 64 bit OS)


Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.

GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic Full Scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)

If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.



Launch it, allow it to download latest Avast! virus definitions
Click the "Scan" button to start scan.After scan finishes,click on Save log

Post the log results here

I really appreciate your clear and concise response. I just hope that the virus lets me install these, because it wouldn't let me install Malwarebytes.
