registry defender/blocked mbam.exe

Recommended Posts

So i thought i removed the registry defender virus with mbam a couple days ago. I log on now to find that I am getting popups for registry defender whilst I was browsing with Google Chrome. I attempt to run mbam again, but I'm pretty sure that registry defender was blocking it. I restart my computer, because at this point, it slowed to molasses. Now I can't get to the windows log in screen, it stops just before I should see the Vista icon flare up (after the microsoft loading bar) and idles.

I read about renaming mbam.exe to winlogon.exe, but I can't get to that point right now. So my question is:

Is it possible to take the hard drive from the infected pc and attach it to a clean computer and then run mbam from that clean pc to remove the infection from the infected pc's hard drive?

I appreciate any other help I can get.

There are other methods that can be used, but if you have access to another computer that is clean and has up to date Anti-Virus you can slave the drive and scan it with your Anti-Virus. MBAM though is not designed to be used in this fashion so it would not be of too much value being used like that.

You can also follow the directions below and someone will assist you in cleaning the system.
