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.

As you are badly infected, please follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide  starting at Step #6.
 
When you have created the necessary logs, start a new topic  HERE 
 
..... and post the required logs to your new topic .  (You will also find this link at Step 7 in the Preparation Guide).   The Malware Response Team Experts from the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum will attend to your topic from thereon.
(Windows 8.1 Users will not be able to create DDS Logs)

=> Continue if you cannot finish any step -

         Please Use Copy / Paste for your responses, and Do Not Attach them unless your helper requests this.

 After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can close this one.

Above All...DO NOT add any replies to your topic....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 "bump" your post or 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 Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

 If Help Bot responds to your topic, please follw his Step #1 so the team will be notified.

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.
The current wait time is 1 - 2 days and 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.
