Hello, I recently caught a virus on my pc. Microsoft Security Essentials labels it as Trojan:WIN32/Sirefef.AB. It claims to have removed the Trojan and it no longer detects it during a scan, but my computer randomly shuts down now with no warning. If I enter safe mode it will shut down VERY fast. I'm using Windows XP home edition. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I'm not very computer savvy, but I can follow directions pretty well. Thanks.
