I've never heard of Malwarebytes NOT removing something in the FREE version. I haven't used in several months, though, so I can't say for sure.

Here are some free bootable AV CDs:

False, your virus looks like it is in a protected system folder which the AV software does not have permissions to. Not really sure why you assume that the free version doesn't remove infections, because it does. You need to look into taking ownership of the Recycle Bin folder

Install Avast Free AV and schedule a boot time scan

System files won't be locked during a boot time scan

EDIT - Why can't I see the image in FF but I can in IE ?

Yeah Id say that, Empty Recycle Bin. Also Malware Bytes Free Version Definitely has remove feature. Why do you say it doesn't?

I still wish Malwarebytes would take the superantispyware approch and show us what it finds as it finds it. Nothing is more annoying than when you do a scan on someones machine and it finds 1 infection in memory but you don't get to know what that infection is until 1 hour after the scan is complete. Only to find out it's mywebsearch.

Yep, I hate that too, makes me want to hit stop to see what it was, but then I cba to wait for another scan in-case it finds something at the end

Ok from what I read it is a new Trojan (Some people just have too much time on their hands) discovered in mid December, which is why malwarebyes can't remove it because it does not know how

Sirefef, or ZeroAccess, is a Trojan that infects machines by exploiting a browser, through a third-party plugin, via an email attachment/link or it

I'd boot off a Kapsersky Rescue Disc usb / cd and scan from there.

Iv`e just cleaned a lappie with this on using boot cd`s. Look like you were actually pretty lucky as it normally locks you out of the computer (ransomware). You have been caught blah blah blah, send some money via wire transfer and you can your computer back sort of thing :pinch:

Start sandboxing your browser...
