PLEASE HELP!!! School Teacher In Desperate Need of Working Laptop

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if anyone is up late this time of night but any help would be truly appreciated. My wife is a an elementary school teacher and ended getting the Security Tool installed on her system. Needless to say it has been a bear to get off and I have been unsuccessful to say the least. I did find some help at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...e-security-tool. However, when I get to the point of updating the definitions for Malwarebytes, I get the following error code:

Unable to execute file:

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

Create Process failed; code 2.

The system cannot find the file specified.

I looked through the forums and saw that the user steve7 had the same problem posted on 10/14/2009 at 4:22 pm. I noticed that sUBs asked the user to use ComboFix and post the log file but the user never responded.

Should I do the same thing? And is there anyone who can help with the log file if I post it.

PLEASE HELP...as my wife desperately needs her laptop for school on Monday and I am at the end of my rope....any help would be greatly appreciated.

Her system is:

Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005

Version 2002

Service Pack 3

Intel Core 2 CPU

T5500 @ 1.66 GHz

1 GB of RAM

Thank you in advance to anyone who can help...and sUBs, if you are out there and catch this thread....your help would be most appreciated.

I have the same error, so will be anxiously looking for advice.

I ran combofix and I am now able run malwarebytes. The advice here is NOT to run combofix until directed to do so but I thought I would run it to at least get a log file. Combofix went further than I expected , it ran and deleted a whole bunch of stuff while i was out of the room. When i returned my system had rebooted and combofix was generating a report. It had deleted MANY things , e.g.

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((( Other Deletions )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

and on and on, hundreds of files. I had a back-up so was not too worried. Everything appears good, I am 7 minutes in to a Malwarebytes scan and no threats found. I have had fire fox up and running for 5 minutes and no nasty re-directs.

Actually, as Malwarebytes completed I had 18 threats , 17 multiple.rogue and one trojan.dropper , all were removed successfully.
