    Ok, so I got infected by this crap yesterday and it is seriously impossible to remove. I noticed that many people has recently been infected by this lately and I wonder how I can remove it.

    I have the latest update for Nod32 and I have scanned and removed, but it keeps coming back.
    I also tried MBAM in safe mode which found C:\Windows\Installer\{6ccbf812-07b7-4726-bef0-b612a153384e}\L\00000008.@ (Trojan.BitMiner)

    C:\Windows\Installer\{6ccbf812-07b7-4726-bef0-b612a153384e}\U\00000008.@ (Trojan.Dropper.BCMiner)

    Both are same file path as the ones Nod32 is picking up, but Nod32 also says :
    Object: Operating memory > C:\Windows\assembly\GAC_32\Desktop.ini
    Threat: a variant of Win32/Sirefef.EZ trojan

    Also scanned with GMER, TDSSKiller and Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool, nothing found.

    Please help me, im going crazy o_O

    cschrille,

    I'm afraid that the official ESET Support Forum is almost useless for one-on-one support for this; I hate to say it, but..... :blink: :ouch:

    You are better of by:
    1. contacting Customer Care:
    http://www.eset.com/support/contact?seg=home

    or

    2. start a thread at a dedicated forum where they look at HijackThis logs and the likes. Since you already did run MBAM, ask over here:
    http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showforum=7

    ===

    PS:
    Interesting that there was somebody else who had also problems with Win32/Sirefef.EZ :
