I have a client computer that is infected with the sirefef virus. I am not sure what version of it, it has, but it has taken over the win32\services.exe. To make the matter even harder I am only able to boot the computer for 1.5 mins. Then windows startup programs finish and then it states that it has a critical error and will shutdown in 1 min. I have run bit-defender, and AVG. Please if anyone can tell me how to rectify this situation without reinstalling Windows 7.

You cannot post the logs, but this infection could be cleaned outside the windows, using FRST...
