Run MBAM from a boot cd

Recommended Posts

i recently read a thread started by timekiller: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/lofiver...php/t23232.html

he indicates he was successful in running from a boot cd. i would like to know how he did it.

i purchase at least 100 copies of mbam per year, but recently, i am unable to get it to run, even with renaming the file.

i am interested in running it from a boot cd. i understand that i will need to run in a full environment due to heuristics, but it would be nice to kill those tdss with a quick scan, so you could move on to the meat of the problem.

what i end up doing mostly is either clean restores, or pull the drive, pop it in a tray and scan it with a clean machine.

Currently properly running MBAM from a WinPE disk is still not possible. There is work on-going in that area but it's been slow due to other more pressing issues. Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows has a copy and it will run but not well and will be of little real value to you at this time.

We can assist you in cleaning this PC if you would like here on the forum or you can send email as Yardbird said and we can do it via email whichever method you'd like.

  • Do not assume you're clean because you don't see something in the logs. Please wait until the person assisting you provides feedback.
