I have a similar problem to many others on this board. MSE stopped being able to activate, so I re-installed it. I ran a scan and it discovered some sirefef trojans (W I think, although there could've been others). It tried to remove them and then I got stuck in the critical error / 1 minute restart issue. I tried running Kaspersky Rescue Disk, which found and removed several other trojans. I then restarted in safe mode but the restart issue persists. Due to this, I couldn't follow the 5 step malware removal process. I'd appreciate any help in resolving this.
