I'm using Win7 64 bit and got infected today... I noticed that firefox was redirecting this morning so I closed the process and turned off the computer. When I restarted this afternoon, all my icons were relocated and that my MSE service was turned off and was not listed in services. Windows firewall was also turned off and I get an error trying to restart it. I reinstalled MSE and scanned only to find sirefef in a few places. I chose to remove it, rebooted and now have a error 1 minute shutdown loop. I also realized that my system restore is now turned off so I am unable to just restore it to yesterday. How did I get this super virus?!? I did install a flash update today and checked for that redirect virus that hits tomorrow. Thanks in advance guys this is way out of my league!

Hello GMaelstrom

This infection has corrupted several files and we need to remove it and then fix those. We need to repost in a new topic and get a deeper look.
DO NOT run a Temp file or Registry cleaner.

Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
