Malware Defense somehow installed itself on my laptop and it started freezing the computer and locking up unless running on safemode.
I followed your instructions posted on this site for removing malware defence, rkill appeared to stop the freezing so i was able to complete the installation running mbam (renamed to explorer.exe).

The scan detected the threats went to restart to complete removal and the computer froze up.
When it rebooted i ran rkill and the scan again and it detected more threats.
Again during the removal it went to reboot and froze.
After turning it back on and running the scan it did not find any problems or threats.
I thought it had worked however now whenever the computer goes to shutdown or standby it still freezes and locks up.

Does this mean there are still traces of malware defense/there are still settings it changed that havn't been put back right?

Can you help with this?
