  1. So I turned on my computer this morning and received a msg from my antivirus software that I have a win32/sirefef.ND trojan virus. it keeps telling me that its been detected and quarantined. yet the computer is still not operating properly. I am running a Dell D620 with windows XP. any thoughts or suggestions?

    Thank you very much for your quick response. Since my first post, it was determined that I had a number of malware programs on the laptop as well. One of which was the fake "system restore" program. I have since removed this and from what I can tell removed all the malware from the PC as well. I am currently scanning the PC via total defense to see if the win32/sirefef virus is still present. if it is not detected, can I assume Im safe? or should I still continue with your directions?
    Thanks again

    Sirefef is a very serious infection.
    I suggest you continue with my previous reply.
