Hi Golden,

Does it mean I have no more options but to do a clean install ?

I've done some reading up on Zero Access, and now I know why its so hard to remove - even after throwing multiple well-known tools at it. Apparently, in some cases its impossible to clean. You could spend days throwing other tools at this in the hope that it is eradicated, but success is not guaranteed.

Unless Jacee has other suggestions, bite the bullet, and do a clean install as recommended earlier.

Windows 7 Professional x86

I'm having the same problem so far. I'm currently running the Microsoft Safety Scanner as well as Trend Micro Titanium. Both Full Scans. Afterward I'm going to run the RKill and Malwarebytes. I just installed some Windows 7 updates and I noticed the Action Center informing me about the Windows Firewall. That's how this all started. I'll post a reply with my results. I'm hoping I don't have to do a clean install seeing as how I have over a TB of media on my PC and no way to get a larger HD.

Well, my PC restarted with no problems after the scans. It seems like I may have the same problem with a different cause. I'm gonna continue researching it.

Windows 7 Home Premium


The posts in these thread date back to 2012.

Also, Windows Repair (All in One) is not a tool used to fix Sirefef or ZeroAccess Rootkit.

It use is meant for doing repairs after an infection is removed.
