Remove Win32/Sirefef.EF that stealth IPs to cover its dirty affairs

Win32/Sirefef.EF (Sirefef.EF) is a version of infamous Sirefef trojan focused on redirecting user to the websites of interest to hackers, stealing IP of affected machine so that it could be used to cover crimes performed by hackers such as credit card data stealth.
In the wild, victims of the infection complain the notification on the malware permanently pops up while system is loading. It invites users to reboot so that removal of Win32/Sirefef.EF trojan could be completed, but the reboot is followed by the same notification again and again.
In the meantime, the trojan actually causes severe connectivity problems. One of the victims has reported his Internet became as slow as 14.4k dial up and connection tends to fail establishing as the relevant icon freezes at displaying Acquiring Address status.
Get rid of Win32/Sirefef.EF completely, even if hackers has already partly taken over your operating system acting through the trojan, as the free scanner available here is a validated by examination facility for extermination of any infections representing Sirefef family.
