Please HELP!! Everything I run comes up with an infected error, telling me that I need to run Security Tool. Error Message: Some critical system files of your computer were modified by malicous programs, and has detected hartmful software in your system...register immediately. Multiple red boxes pop up that say are you sure you want to continue unprotected. All the icons on my desktop have disappeared. My computer automatically resets itself every 15-20 minutes.

Please post the completed MBAM scan log in your next reply with an update on how it's running,thanks.

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. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Good luck,may as well add the MBAM updayes in case you are blocked.

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.
