I have also gotten Internet Security 2010 infecting my computer. It started with just some pop-ups and warnings. I have tried the Anti-Malware but it would never allow the exe. file to load. I got infected by a similar virus a few months ago and got rid of it. I thought that this one was going to be the same way as long as I didn't buy the fake program. Now I can't even get the computer to load anything.It won't allow me to start the computer in any mode, What can I do? Please help!!!! A blue screen appears stating that there was a problem loading Windows, and if this is the first time you have seen this message then restart your computer. It has gotten worse as days pass. How do I even get to where I can do anything about this malicious program? I need this computer for work ASAP!!! Thanks.

Is there a way I can download an Anti-malware program and copy it to a disk and then run that disk on the infected computer, even though the computer will not load Windows or anything else?

I moved you here as it is too confusing at times to work 2 people.


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.

Also d'load RKill.... run this before MBAM

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
You will need to run the application again if rebooting the computer occurs along the way.

As I stated b4, I can't get Windows to load on the infected computer. If I downloaded the anti-malware to a usb memory stick, will it load w/o Windows?

by running it from the .exe file it should run off the disk/usb.

If still no joy run this off of it.
