Hi, I'm new here and I only really have one query.

I was linked to the article on how to remove Vista Security here and the only step I'm having problems with is the very last one.
I've installed Malwarebytes onto my infected laptop and I will run it. I do the full scan and let it run but it won't finish. At some point, it could be after 2 minutes of scanning or 13, the laptop will either shut itself down outright (black screen) or say that there is an error (blue screen with white text and one of the things it says is KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR, which I have no idea what that means.) and then I have to start the thing all over again. I was up 'til midnight restarting my computer and watching it scan for a while before shutting down and its just really frustrating, to understate the obvious.

Can anybody help?

P.S. I haven't downloaded Secunia PSI. Is that recommended for this problem?
