Hello,

My mom's laptop is infected with a crazy virus. Every time I start it up, MS Removal Tool pops up and starts running a scan. I tried downloading Malwarebytes but after downloading, I was unable to install it because a Warning message popped up in the lower right hand part of my screen saying it is infected. I then tried to downlaod Malwarebytes on a different computer, renamed it, and tried to install from a flash drive, but it still did not work. I seriously need help getting rid of this thing! Please Help!!!

Ater downloading rkill, the virus wouldnt let me run it. So I tried the same with iExplore and it worked. I finally got Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to install and I'm running a system scan now. Thank you! Is there anything else I should do after running the Anti-Malware scan?

I normaly run Superantispyware as well as malwarebytes Found here but keep an eye on your thread for a more experienced response.

ps: make sure you update definitions before running any of them buddy.
