frequent "Threat has been detected" messages
« on: August 12, 2012, 06:50:58 PM »
Greetings to the forum:
I am receiving frequent messages about Windows/Installer/{b469404f-df24-0b63-8934-fce605536d72}/U/800000cb@
It is labeled alternated as a trojan and malware.  Avast appears to consistently successful send the problem to the chest, but it is labeled as a "severe" risk and I need to make it go away.
A few days ago I reviewed some postings on this forum and it appears that others have had similar problems, although numbers were different in the posted description of the threat object.  If I understood correctly, the malware/trojan must be deleted individually from every infected machine.  It looked like the owner of the infected machine needed to post the results of a Malwarebites scan.  I ran a scan several times and came up with no infections, according to Malwarebites, every time.  Also ran Spybot and got a bunch of problems identified, but after cleaning them out still have the obnoxious infection. 
Please advise how to get ride of this pest.
Thanks in advance.

this looks as it can be the Siref rootkit infection...
