I am trying to remove the Antivirus Vista 2010 virus and I have run into a bit of a stumbling block. The instructions I have found tell me to first run the FixExe file and then MBAM; however when I attempt to first run the FixExe file I get the following error:

"Cannot import:F:\FixExe.reg: The specified file is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor"

If I go into the registry editor and attempt to import the file it gives the following error:

"Cannot import:F\FixExe.reg: The key selected is invalid"

I have attempted to download FixExe.reg from two different guides online including the one from this site.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If mbam will run without running FixExe, go ahead and run it

Did you try rkill before running mbam?

Also rename mbam.exe to mbam.com

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.This might take a few times
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
Do not reboot the computer or you will have to run it again
