    sounds like you might be out of luck. If you could post pictures, some of us may be able to help.

    It is possible that you may have left the cleaner on the pavers too long or didn't fully spray the cleaner off of the pavers. Also, you need to make sure that the pavers were fully dry before sealing them. If there is any moisture in the pavers, it is possible that the efflorescence is now trapped in the surface of the pavers.

    Post some pictures and we may be able to see the problem.

    It is not efflorescence the sealer is doing something strange. Is it possible to strip it off with doing any more damage
