Hello

I've seen many other posts relating to sirefef infection on this thread, but I wanted to make my own thread so I could have someone help me out as it seems many people's situations have been different.

I first noticed MSE was not working properly and wouldn't run real-time protection. I ran a scan and it detected many instances of Sirefef, most of which I think were removed on reboot. However, obviously it is still on the computer considering windows firewall and MSE still won't work correctly. MSE no longer detects sirefef any longer. When I tried running malwarebytes, it picked up one instance of it, however, I paused the scan to check to see if it was actually sirefef. It was, so I rebooted, and now Malwarebytes doesn't appear to detect it anymore. I did a full system scan with windows defender which did not detect anything either.

Right now, the only symptoms I am having are issues with windows firewall and MSE. I have downloaded several of the tools recommended in the other threads, but I need to know where to start removing this. It looks like I have caught it fairly early, so I'm not completely hosed yet.

Normally, I would just format the disc and recover stuff, but I cannot find my windows 7 discs, so I have to do this the hard way.

The following is the first log from FSS ran in safe mode. If anybody could help me get rid of this completely, I would greatly appreciate it. I've tried running malwarebytes again, and it appears to be skipping several 10,000 files at the beginning of the scan (somewhere from 700 to about 30,000), is that normal?

After running adwcleaner.exe, it does asks me to reboot then it will generate a log, but it doesn't.

TDSSkiller does not find any threats.

Hello and welcome.
We need a deeper look.


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.
Also include the logs you posted earlier.
Let me know if that went well.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

ALL logs are answered.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
