Hi fellow members:
I'm pleased to have found this site and to join the bleepingcomputer community. I live in Eugene, OR. My birthday is October 15.
My neighbor asked for my assist in dealing with a problem on his Windows XP desktop. I discovered that his system was infected with WinPC Defender malware. I Googled and found bleepingcomputer's MBAM removal tool. Since the incessant popups on my friend's system prevent or impede a lot its functionality -- including getting an uninterrupted internet connection to do a direct internet download! -- I decided to try using my own PC to download MBAM to my HD, and then copied it to my optical drive using a blank CD-R disc.
My first question to the forum members is: Can I successfully install the CD-stored MBAM tool to my neighbor's PC as an alternative to the internet download method?
Note: If this method is deemed to be an effective alternative, then I should also mention that I plan to install it to my neigbor's PC iwhile in Safe Mode.
My second question is: Will the Safe Mode installation possible -- or better yet, helpful?
