I was not able to do updates. It seems that I have the Trojan horse virus @in32/sirefef.al

I had minor problems with my computer, but the Microsoft Security icon will blink sometimes indicating that there was a problem.  After finding how to use the program, I discovered that, under the story, I had a virus Trojan:Win32 / sirefef.al and .aq.  I would remove and then a few hours later they would return.  I would like to know what it takes to permanantly remove from my hard drive.  He has now disabled my ability to down load updates for windows, and some of my security system is disabled as well.  If anyone can help I'd appreciate it of course.  Thank you

    Borrow a Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc Recovery DVDs) to do a repair installation

    If you see a startup Neosmart repair disk download here, this is NOT what you want.

    You want a good Vista DVD that contains the operating system files.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you need a recovery media for your laptop back to factory settings, read this info:

    How to get Vista recovery Media and/or to use the Vista recovery Partition on your computer.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ask them if you can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

  • Not will not be up-to-date and exe. files as well as several other programs won't work after that I removed the Trojan horses today.

    I have two problems that first will not to day and exe. files as well as several other programs will not work after removing six Trojans today. I got the old fake security / you're not protected message led me to run McAfee and anti-malware that I solved the problem. It allowed me to meet Explorer but I tried to open the accessories of the calculator and it will not work, nor will my Rossetta stone. I can open these types of files under other users account on this computer. Help please.

    I suggest that you create a new user account for yourself (save all your files first of all that I hope are not damaged etc.). Then, you delete the old user account (but keep the files). Probably most of the programs have been installed for all users, so it should not be (I hope) a problem.

    Recently had to clean a computer infected with one of these software etc. rogue security and creating a new account (Administrator) so that the user has finished up and transfer its files to the new account. He was lucky. I hope you are too.

    Perhaps others may have other suggestions for you.

    Please make sure that the computer is clean of any infection etc.

  • I was not able to download the updates of Windows XP

    I have a dell machine running xp / sp3 who has started having failures to download or install updates may 9.  Since then he has not installed updates even if it is set to do so all night at 04:00.  It is also doing the same thing on the other computer desk in the small office LAN we have running off a verizon for DSL router.  Chess began the same night, May 9.  Here to install updates from the windows update page also failed.  I ran the utility 'Difficulty now' from microsoft, and it has not fixed the problem.

    Thanks in advance for your help to solve this problem.

    Original title: I was not able to download the updates of Windows XP since May 9. Downloads keep failing.

    If you have been playing around with the settings, you'd be wise to resinstall.  All that are "machine accounts" which are automatically defined by the system to the evolution of random passwords.  If you have accounts of changes of ntauthority to other accounts, you perhaps weakened the security level of the operating system.

    No it's not a portal, that even Microsoft doesn't know what are these passwords.

    I think you are talking after upgrade to CC 2015 you're not able to launch I. Also, I believe you speak for read only matter of preference.

    After following the instructions please do not launch Illustrator and check your file preference if the permissions have been set correctly. A good way would be to get inside the preferences folder and then try to create a file manually. If it succeeds, please write to [email protected]

    Thanks for the screenshots. Very useful.

    It seems that you are going to the Help Menu and selecting 'Elements Inspiration Browser' which should be the Aggiomamenti that put you in your screenshot. Keep out of the way. If you go as far as its connection dialog box, quit just there. This seems to be

    associated with photoshop.com, which was abandoned long ago. As I mentioned before, there will be thumbnails

    and other elements of photoshop.com in your program, but none of the items are available to you.

    In respect of assistance, I would also keep away from updates. The update that needs to be done for version 9 (Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements)

    is very limited and are those already mentioned. If you decide to install the 9.0.3 update for Photoshop Elements 9, please use the link to Adobe

    already provided. As mentioned, 9.0.3 is not an update for Photoshop Elements 9. However, you will probably get what is called nag messages except if you install 9.0.3 update. I would simply ignore the messages of AGN. I don't think you can do these messages "do not show again".

    What you should focus in respect of aid is the first entry '? Help of Photoshop Elements... F1' and its first Elements 9. It's

    where I suspect you might find the Photoshop elements 9 help PDF and the first elements 9 help PDF in Italian.

    Please consider and let me know if you're OK with the above.

    Thank you.

    Hello joebat,

    It seems that some of your plugins (Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102) might be buggy or obsolete. To check for updates, please visit the plugincheck page. If this does not resolve the problem, try to start Firefox with the disabled modules and see if it helps at all. If so, delete the Shockwave Flash plugin and maybe reinstall or uninstall Firefox and do a new clean install.
    If that is not yet solved the problem, try the following troubleshooting steps: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-mac.html

    That update is SQL server 2005 service pack 4, it is not something that is required in XP and you would probably do anything related to SQL server if you do not need, just so don't install it.
