Hi guys.  I am in quite a pickle.  I was being helped with a nasty infection at Malwarebytes forum and then they cut me off.  I apparently have cracked software and that violated their policy.  I was in the middle of the fix and now I don’t know what to do.  We were pretty far along I believe.  Can anyone here help me here at this forum?   Here is the link to the help I received:

As far as site policy goes, BleepingComputer does permit the cleaning of infected machines running cracked software. However, there are two caveats to this that you should be aware of:
  • While we permit the cleaning of an infected machine, the presence of cracked software precludes you from receiving any other help at this forum until the software is removed.
  • While site policy permits the machine to be cleaned, we do not force our volunteers to pick up any given topic. It will be up to the individual helper whether or not they wish to assist you. So, you may or may not receive a reply.
Should you wish to request assistance here, please create a new topic HERE by following these instructions starting at step 6. Additionally, you should explain your situation as you did here and provide a link to your Malwarebytes topic.
