I attempted to fix the XP Total Security malware on my computer using the directions found on this site. I ran the FixExe.reg successfully. When I attempted to run the MBAM install, even after renaming the file on the flash drive, the file wouldn't open. Can you please help? Thanks.

Well...did you follow These Instructions exactly as written?

Quote from above guide:

"If you are still having problems with your computer after completing these instructions, then please follow the steps outlined in the topic linked below:
Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help

I will move this post to the appropriate BC malware forum, based on what you have stated/done thus far.

Sorry - my interpretation was that if you reached the point of running Malwarebytes and it still didn't correct the problem, proceed to the steps below.
