hi all,, hope you can help. the pc anti spyware 2010 has hit me and i read the instructions on how to fix it but this one makes my pc unable to function. won't let me use icons. or virus programs. tried to use revo uninstaller and it would tabulate the existance of the spyware 2010 but would not let the uninstell work. (disabled). if i work with it more than 4 minutes it reboots. haven't tried in safe mode yet. one warning says to use 2010 uninstaller. and another tries to scan with
advanced viruse remover. i did get a e-mail confermation from you to set up account so e-mail coming in. clicked on the link and shut down the puter. no internet out. this is my wifes puter and i am on mine. she tells me the facebook is to blame. have the mbam-setup already on the puter and and sdfix on the puter. been here in 2009. not with this much problems. now the windows is showing windows antivirus pro as another window to aliviate all my problems. took it awhiale to show up. checked out
directions for antiviruse pro and it mentioned to bring up task manager off the clock but that is disabled to.(gray) no go.
got xp home. what else can i tell you. my brain is burning..lol did is say that i tried to do the reinstall of the mbam and ran it per instructions not just cliking on the icon, went thru that. shut it down. did search. results got me anti virus pro - aplication in program files.could i deliete from search???

Let's concentrate on MBAM

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.39) and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the 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.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.


Try this to install MBAM

Try renaming the setup file to install.com

try installing in safe mode

Here's a random renamer for MBAM if you can get it installed


Here's a link for MBAM definition update


Try to follow directions and explain in detail what works or doesn't and what you tried

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

can't use anyting on my computer because i don't have any icons. wont let me bring up all programs. cant run virus programs. cant boot in safe mode. dont have systems tray. prety mutch dont have anything. most of the time i have pop up window stating explorer.exe - application error. the application failed to initialize properly. click on to terminate application. and then we reboot.. soooooo the getting on the internet with the microsoft window is a big deal because maybe i can run a scan on-line if not any of the stuff i have..
