Hello all!

Long time lurker and huge fan of this amazing community. I am finally stumped on a virus that someone got at my work, and I believe it is sirefef.y that is the offender.

I was hoping to get a little help from the experts here, as the person who's laptop it is is very important in our company. It is a brand new system as a note. It is running very basic software, and has Office 2010 home and business installed.

System:

Dell Vostro v131
Windows 7 Pro x64
4GB DDR3 1333
i3-Sandy Bridge with HT

The system won't stay in Windows for more than the 1 minute no matter what mode I am in. Safe Mode gets the error with and without network active. Very hard trojan to root out. I have scanned with a Kaspersky Rescue Disk and I don't believe it even detected sirefef on its scan.

Any help would be appreciated :)

Thanks!

/Tyler
