I have my sons laptop which seems to be infected. They have NO virus protection. I would like to know how to download malwarebytes and other help onto a cd from my PC. When trying to connect to internet from their laptop I am constantly redirected.

Download it to the Desktop of the non-infected computer. right-click on the icon and select "Send to". Choose the drive and follow the prompts.
You can also try Safemode w/networking

If mbam won't install

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.
