Hi,
Just got this last night. C:win32/sirefef.AB. So i started to try to remove it and MSE shut it down. Tried throwing some different programs on the computer to detect it and start the removal process but now MSE shut computer down. So from start up to shut down I got a window of about 95 sec. to shut the process's down but any type of attempt everything stop resonding. Tried uninstalling MSE not enuff time. Tried throwing threatfire in there not enuff time. Tried doing some of the things on this and others pages of the web but again not enuff time. So if possible any help would be great. tyvm JOhn :) Oh I'm on my computer the wifes is the one infected. I used a flash drive to move a few programs over to her computer.

Welcome John! What is your Operating System?

Have you tried from a Reboot into Safe Mode with Networking
How to start Windows 7 in Safe Mode

<<><<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Reboot into Safe Mode with Networking
How to enter safe mode(XP/Vista)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode with Networking using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.


>>>> Download this file and doubleclick on it to run it. Allow the information to be merged with the registry.

Run RKill....


Download and Run RKill
  • Please download RKill by Grinler from one of the 4 links below and save it to your desktop.

    Link 1
    Link 2
    Link 3
    Link 4

  • Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Double-click on Rkill on your desktop to run it. (If you are using Windows Vista, please right-click on it and select Run As Administrator)
  • A black screen will appear and then disappear. Please do not worry, that is normal. This means that the tool has been successfully executed.
  • If nothing happens or if the tool does not run, please let me know in your next reply

Do not reboot your computer after running rkill as the malware programs will start again. Or if rebooting is required run it again.


If you continue having problems running rkill.com, you can download iExplore.exe or eXplorer.exe, which are renamed copies of rkill.com, and try them instead.

>>>

Please download TDSSKiller.zip and and extract it.
  • Run TDSSKiller.exe.
  • Click on Change Parameters
  • Put a check in the box of Detect TDLFS file system
  • Click Start scan.
  • When it is finished the utility outputs a list of detected objects with description.
    The utility automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for malicious objects.
    The utility prompts the user to select an action to apply to suspicious objects (Skip, by default). Let the options as it is and click Continue
  • Let reboot if needed and tell me if the tool needed a reboot.
  • Click on Report and post the contents of the text file that will open.

    Note: By default, the utility outputs the log into system disk (it is usually the disk with installed operating system, C:\) root folder. The Log has a name like: TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.


>>>
Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it

Would disabling the auto restart on system failure in the advance start up options help when pressing F8 to get to safe mode w/networking ?

Restart the PC

Press F8 on bootup

Select REPAIR YOUR COMPUTER

Click on REPAIR

On the System Recovery Options menu you will get the following options:

Startup Repair
System Restore
Windows Complete PC Restore
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool
Command Prompt

Can you get to this screen?

Select System restore

If you have restore point before you installed microsoft security essentials restore it or if you have restore point before you were infected would be fine

if there are no restore points let me know
