  1. Sirefef y and b, cant do anything keeps rebooting. Vista 64 ult, desktop.

    Noticed something odd, a website, kept activing java, then when I closed browser, java was still open in taskbar. I open Task Manger, to see it active as well as firefox, even though I closed it.

    First thing Norton Internet Security blocked a Trojan or something, I look up where the file was, and find some more files I del them, then scan, with norton, Advanced system care, ccleaner.

    Reboot, peerblock broken, MSE broken, Desktop icon enlarged and Icons in default arangement.

    I look up the missing services which broke peerblock, find a solution for it, .Reg files someone
    has posted. next reboot peerblock works and so does MSE.But now MSE dectects Sirefef y and b, tries to clean, but a power down message comes up. And every reboot, MSE has detected and tries to clean then power off again, tried in safe mode samething.

    Went to sleep, wake up use spare laptop, find your posts.

    Have Done Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 scan usb boot.

    I del it

    Rebooted, Got blue sceen of death


    Think I have Ultimate boot Cd somehwere, I try that. See if that cant get me back to windows at least.
