Need to run MBAR from CMD prompt

Recommended Posts

I have an HP laptop running Window 10.  I was trying to run a Malwarebytes scan when I got a message "unable to load Rootkit driver".  I chose to reboot & on restart got into a loop:  "Preparing auto repair---Diagnosing your PC---Automatic repair---Your PC did not start correctly."  Options:  Restart or Advanced Options.  I Went to command prompt.  Ran Bit Defender Rescue.  It found GEN:VARIANT.SYMMI.31976.  Told Bit Defender to delete the infection, log out & restart.  On restart system went back to same loop.  Win 10 won't start.  System Restore doesn't work.  Downloaded MBAR- on a thumb drive & copied it to the laptop in a new folder  C:\MBAR.  What do I do next?  Please give detailed directions.  As you can tell, I don't know what I'm doing.

Hello and welcome:

MBAR-BETA is a powerful beta tool that is not really designed for use by home users without expert guidance.

I suggest getting some expert help.  Such work is conducted in a special forum area reserved for that purpose, or at the help desk.
So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the suggested, preliminary steps to expedite the process.
If the computer is too crippled to run the requested preliminary tools, just start a new topic anyway.  The helpers will have additional tools to use to assist you.
A malware analyst will assist you with looking into your issue - the helper will guide you through scanning, cleanup and repair.

Thank you,
