I have just read on the forum, in a recently closed thread, that the Trojan.Vawtrak.ED is a false positive but my problem is that I followed the instructions from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which told me to restart my computer in order to remove the trojan. Now the computer won't restart and nothing has worked so far to get it to work.


I have tried using start-up repair, system restore (4 separate points), and all the options on the menu after pressing F8

Can you please help me!

Sorry for the delays..


If your operating system is not on the C:\ drive, you will need to change the below command to reflect this..


If you see the options after pressing F8 - do you see the option to "repair your computer" ?

If so - click "repair your computer"

This will take a few moments and you should next see a window with 5 options..

Last option being "command prompt"


It will launch a command prompt window and it should show you are in X:\windows\system32


Type the following command exactly:


copy /y usp10.dll c:\windows\system32


It should show 1 file(s) copied


Like this:




Reboot back up to Windows.

Make sure to update MBAM to latest definitions.


Let me know if any further issues.

Hello Blender, Thanks very much for your help - it worked perfectly - and I didn't think you took a long time to reply to me. I am sorry I took such a long time to reply to you but I didn't see the link to the topic in your message and couldn't find the topic in the forum pages.


All the Best,
