  1. Windows Pro Defense prevents Malwarebytes from running. You can rename the executable file or using Malwarebytes Chameleon, but with the Windows Pro Defense virus either way it will freeze up Malwarebytes during the removal of the files it finds. Booting from a remote OS leaves the virus dormant and removes the files (the executable, mainly) that prevent Malwarebytes from removing ANY files. So, booting from the remote OS first and then running Malwarebytes in the actual OS is how you can get rid of that particular virus. Otherwise you must MANUALLY remove the executable first like I did, and

I'm into using Ubuntu, and I have even got an 8 gig flash drive that I can boot Ubuntu up from on any computer that boots usb. Thanks to Linux's amazing hardware compatibility, drivers are RARELY an issue for booting from the flash drive for any computer! I'm posting b
