Can Malwarebytes cause Startup Errors?

Recommended Posts

I had a malware on my computer that kept bringing up google ads. I used malwarebytes, I did a quick scan, removed all infected objects, restarted my computer, and I haven't been able to boot back up since. Could the objects I removed be the cause of this?

I read that I could put in my windows installation disk and run a startup repair, would this erase information and personal data from my computer?

Hi, none of these entries could cause the problem you describe.

A startup repair is a good place to start. See here for a tutorial.

Please let me know if that fixed the problem.

EDIT I see you are already helped by screen317. Please do not start any other topics, instead, post back in your own topic!! I will request this topic to be closed.
