  1. My budding young gamer son (read: Minecraft junkie) has downloaded Sirefef. MSE is rebooting every 2 minutes, so no promises how long I can keep typing in any one session. I ran the Farbar tool. Will paste log in next post.

    Please, observe following rules:
    • Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer.
    • If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else.
    • Please refrain from running any tools, fixes or applying any changes to your computer other than those I suggest.
    • Never run more than one scan at a time.
    • Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.
    • The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.
    • If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum.
    • I close my topics if you have not replied in 5 days. If you need more time, simply let me know. If I closed your topic and you need it to be reopened, simply PM me.


    Go ahead with FRST.

    Thanks, Broni. Unfortunately, it seems the computer may be beyond help. At this point and we've elected to restore the original factory settings. I was no longer able to even start Notepad to view the FRST log file. It's a shame, really. I was kind of looking forward to going through the process with y'all. Maybe I can convince him to download another virus. :D
