malwarebytes purposely gave me the BSOD

I have the free version of the software, but my buddy decided to pirate a version of it and left it sitting around on my computer somewhere. Free version works well enough, so I never decided to engage in piracy. Needless to say my computer, that hasn't BSODed in 2 years, crashed when Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware found the keygen labeled ''DONT.STEAL.FROM.US'', or something along those lines. I chose to remove the keygen, and the computer BSODed. Is this the type of operation you guys run? Ridiculous.

Here's the log. I changed the admin name, however.

SOOOO, your upset that MBAM detected a stolen version of their software :) . My guess, and I am not an expert, is that your friend who likes to steal software and leave it on your computer most likely is the cause of this issue. Who knows what else he could have downloaded by accident if he engages in cracks and keygens. This is a major source of malware transfer. MBAM would never intentionally give a user the BSOD. I would watch who you let have access to your computer. Just my 2 cents.

jjcore, there is no way that removing a single non-system executable file with Malwarebytes could cause a BSOD. Unless, that is, if that executable file had already created 'hooks' or other nasty things when it was first run.

As prairie dog says, you may have some other kind of 'stealth malware' present on your computer.

I recommend running some rootkit scans and an online virus scan. You may be surprised at the results.

I ran prime 95 for 8 hours to ensure the stability of my system.

I ran Avast! via the ''thorough mode'', and before the computer booted, and no viruses.

I ran spybot, super antispyware, and online scans. NO PROBLEMS.

I ran tuneup utilities, regclean, you ****ing name it-- THEY WANT TO DESTROY PEOPLE WITH THAT KEYGEN.

Don't play me off as an moron. The pirated version was never installed, guy. It detected it, said it tried to remove it, and then BSODed me with a message that I've never seen in 7 years being on the computer nearly 5 hours a day. There is no other explanation.

My buddy leaves pirated stuff in a folder, doesn't execute it because he knows that I'm logging his ass and I'm chilling right next to him the entire time-- Im LITERALLY SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO HIM. I have a bios password and a physical lock on my power button on my computer to boot.

Your argument is flawed.

it was on your comp executed or not it was there and was dected by malwarebytes.

you cant blame malwayrebytes for your friends actions.

really why are you blameing malwarebyes because you had a priate version on your comp.

thats your own fault,no one eleses.

if you hadnt let him put pirate stuff on your comp then you would never have had this problem.

jjcore, I'm bored at work with nothing better to do. So, just out of interest, would you like to do a rootkit scan?

Go to:

http://www.gmer.net/

Download the randomly named EXE and copy the file to your Desktop. Remember what its name is.

Double click on random named exe file and run it.

It may take a minute to load and become available.

Do not make any changes. Click on the SCAN button and DO NOT use the computer while it's scanning.

Once the scan is done click on the SAVE button and browse to your Desktop and save the file as GMER.LOG

Zip up the GMER.LOG file and save it as gmerlog.zip and attach it to your reply post.

DO NOT directly post this log into a reply. You MUST attach it as a .ZIP file.

Click OK and quit the GMER program.

Keygens are stand alone apps and not in any way integrated into the OS and thus removing them does not have the ability to do as you claim .

The detection I think you are talking about is the pirated version of MBAM and this also can be deleted just as safely as if you had actually paid for it .

You are either a pirate looking to cause trouble or a pirate that was the unfortunate victim of coincidental OS problem .

In any event I don't care what a pirate has to say or what happens to their system . If you did even the slightest bit of research you would know that using keygens and cracks is roughly as safe (and intelligent) as using your PC as a jack stand .
