Hello! I've recently run into issues with my computer that I believe to be caused by some sort of underlying issue (spyware, malware, virus, however you want to categorize it) and I need assistance.

Im running on Windows Vista and after returning from a family members house, I've noticed some issues... My computer has been running a bit slower and my mouse has been moving very frequently by itself when this had not been an issue prior.

What I have done so far is run scans with Malware Bytes and the only thing it mentions is that Ive had Siredef.c. Ive run the scan a couple of times to see if its lingered and it has. I'm not going to tell you that I believe that's the only bad thing I've got on my computer, so I've come here to get as much help as I possibly can on fully cleaning my computer and what I can do to avoid more bad things from happening. Thanks.

A couple of things to consider:

1.  Mouse movement.  If you're using a laptop, accidentally touching the touch pad can cause movements of the mouse by just the fatty part of your thumb touching it.  If you're using a regular mouse, so into the touch pad area of the control panel, and disable the "tap to click" function.

2.  Have you defragged your computer lately?  Too much fragmentation can slow down disk access.

Have a great day!

Win32/Sirefef is a dangerous threat that uses advanced stealth techniques to hinder its detection and removal.

You should also run these.

ADW Cleaner

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin...be patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • After reviewing the log, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
  • -- Note: The contents of the AdwCleaner log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you recognize and know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, return to AdwCleaner before cleaning...all detected items will be listed (and checked) in each tab. Click on each one and uncheck any items you want to keep (except you cannot uncheck Chrome and Firefox preferences lines).


    >>>
  • Last run ESET.
  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the esetsmartinstaller_enu.png icon on your desktop.
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
  • Scan potentially unwanted applications
  • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.
  • NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.

How is it now? Appears you infected yourself with a cracked game. It downloads malware. If you do not remove that you will always be infected.

Lets run these and get anything else.

thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
  • .

    >>>

    Empty your temp folders using TFC (Temporary File Cleaner)
    • Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
      alternate download link
    • Save any unsaved work. (TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!)
    • Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. (If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose "Run As Administrator".)
    • Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
    • Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway allowing Windows to load normally (not into Safe Mode) to ensure a complete clean.

It's been running a bit better. I had noticed that particular game myself when it showed up and I honestly feel stupid for not removing it. I never even really used it. It was mostly just for a little bit of nostalgia and it's now been removed.

Are there any follow up scans I should do just to be safe? Also, I must thank you for taking time to help me :) You and everyone else who does this are truly great people.
