Hello, about 2 weeks ago I started to have browser redirection problems. I ran avast, Malwarebytes, and Superantispyware and removed all threats found and the problem stopped. However, recently avast has been popping up warnings every few minutes about malware and trojans being blocked in C:\Windows\System32\systems.exe. A scan with avast also revealed Sirefef-PL [Rtk] in C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_32\Desktop.ini and C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_64\Desktop.ini. I then ran malwayrebytes and no infections were found. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
