I am infected with system security, I've tried downloading malwarebytes, but my computer won't run it. I've also tried running smitfraud and it won't run that either. Is there anything I can do to remove System Security, or get the programs to run on my compuer?

Hello and welcome
Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the

mbam-setup.exe
file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe

and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..


***
Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.



If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.
From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run

the program.
If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash

drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-setup.exe so it will install on the hard drive.

Manually Downloading Updates:
Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-

rules.exe
to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions

(rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system

to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.

I've tried renaming the file and running it from from the flash drive and I still can't get malwarebytes to run on my computer. Any other suggestions?
