I had used the Malewarebytes anti Virus before successfully, about 5 months ago.

Different virus this time, xp anti-spyware. The infection seems to be stopping any installation or opening of Malwarebytes programs.

I have been attempting to rename the file, but confusion reigns.

I have the mbam-setup copied onto a flashdrive, no extention showing on file directory. I this what I want to rename?

Hi JonApp and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Try these instructions: (they cover XP Antispyware as well)
You can transfer the RKill program using a USB stick as well.

Starbuck

Thanks for the prompt info.

Actually I figured it out on my end. I was downloading the RKill on a computer with an anti-virus program activated, which was causing it to not download properly. Once I turned off the anti-virus program on the "good" computer life was beautiful.
