On a machine running Windows 7 64-bit Home Edition, a few days ago I ran a MalwareBytes Anti-Rootkit scan. That scan found Trojan siredef.c. After that was apparently resolved, I ran a full MalwareBytes Anti-Malware scan which reported two infected files which it removed.
Since then I been running further scans using MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and MalwareBytes Anti-Rootkit and a couple other anti-spyware/malware apps. I have run scans in both normal Windows mode and Safe Mode.
The scans have yet to come back completely clean. Some files were quarantined in the early scans, and it seems like scans later have mostly been removing registry keys, thought tonight a scan reported an infected pref.js files in a subdirectory that had a very long pathname. The same scan also detected and quarantined two registry keys that had the word "payload" in them (eek!).
I feel like I'm on a path where I need some help with a fairly deep possible infection and could use some help. Thank you in advance.
