I am operating on Windows 7, 64 bit and clicked on a google image that linked to a Trojan Virus Sirefef or a virus of similar spelling that I have now possibly removed.
I have used Malwarebytes to run a scan of my computer and remove the Sirefef virus but I am not sure if there is any damage to files or malicuous virus hidden or left on my system. I have been receiving mixed advice from friends and then I was refered to this site - awesome site!
One friend said I could do a system back track 1 week to remove the virus, others mentioned wiping my complete hard drive. I would like the adivse from a staff member of this site please?
I currently get the message C:\Users\Andy Whitting\AppData\Roaming\Xiva\xiaft.exe in the Microsoft Security Essentials Pop Up every time I turn on the PC. It says Security Essentials detected items on your PC that it doesnt recognize. By sending these files listed below, you can help Microsoft analysts determine whether these items are malicious.
I have read through a previous post but as I have already run the Malwarebytes program intially I would really apeciate help to remove the remaining parts of the virus and check that my PC is ok.
Thank you so much in advance.
