My computer got a Trojan virus yesterday . MSE report it as TrojanDropper:Win32/Sirefef.B. I don’t know why my antivirus can’t remove it. I just found the path of the virus and removed it but after I restarted my computer later, It came back. And the MSE kept reporting that my computer has the virus. I’m really confused. Is that just report or I have already removed the virus. Do I need to worry about the case?
Win32/Sirefef.B is a destructive Trojan virus that has been detected in PC users’ computers. a dropper Trojan contains malicious or potentially unwanted software which it ‘drops’ and installs on the affected system. Commonly, the dropper installs a backdoor which allows remote, surreptitious access to infected systems. This backdoor may then be used by remote attackers to upload and install further malicious or potentially unwanted software on the system. This threat is detected by the Microsoft antivirus engine.

The most awful and destructive action of the virus is that some Trojan virus will start background downloading when it has its full swing without your notice and permission. All those download things always containing viruses as well. Many anti-virus can remove some components of a malware. But if can’t be removed completely, the malware will start its auto recovery. So that’s why more and more viruses are so clever that anti-virus can’t get rid of them.
