Virus

My Avira anti-virus tells me my laptop has been infected with TR/Sirefef.A.61.

I press on the 'remove' option but the pop-up warning keeps re-appearing.

Can anyone please advise in simple terms how I can remove the virus?

Thanks hijo, but I wouldn't have a clue where to begin to do that.

Avira does give me a remove option but the pop-up warning appears again as Avira is meant to be removing it.

You may need to bot in safe mode to get rid of it, restore wont get rid..
and even safe mode is not guaranteed and it is poss it might have to be done manually.

Re: Virus

Have just read up on this Sean and the best I can come up with is this (loads of other "fixes" all want money off you, so are probably scams) , but his one seems genuine, there are no "now buy this for $49.99" in it
(follow it from the ctrl+alt+delete part)

Re: Virus

Thanks everyone. I really don't feel confident enough to try to remove it myself.

I'll ring someone tomorrow who can 'take over' my laptop and he can do it for me.

Thanks anyway.

Re: Virus

We downloaded malwarebytes & run this once a month & it seems to find all malware & removes them safely.
