BSoD only when running FULL MBAM scan

Recommended Posts

All - noobie here

Been at this for 14 hours now with no luck, so here you go...was looking around in Demonoid (i know, bad) and caught some kind of virus or malware - tried to purge the bad file via Malwarebytes, SuperAnti-spy ware and AVG and thought I had it solved until I ran a FULL SCAN using MBAM and thats when the problems started

I continue to get no errors when running a quick MBAM scan, but everytime I run a MBAM Full scan, I receive a BSoD with the tech info as follows:

STOP: 0x00000024 (0x001902FE,0xA2416944,0xA2416640, 0xB9DD7001)

NTFS.sys - address B9DD7001 base at B9D5D000, Datestamp 45cc56a7

Beginning dump of physical memory

Windows XP Home Edition SP2 Dell 9150 Dimension PC

I have run chkdsk /f and chkdsk /r to no avail

I have deleted and redownloaded MBAM to no avail

I have run a hard drive diagnostic utility on the the HDD (Samsung SP2504C) and it says "PASS" for drive 0

I am at my wits end and don't want to wipe the drive clean with a new install. I can still access the hard drive and all of my files...the only way for me to replicate the STOP error message is by running MBAM FULL scan and within 10 minutes I'm up the creek again.

I plead for anyone with the knowhow to please help me out of this jam i put myself in...

Hello, and welcome to Malwarebytes, bsb:

Sorry to hear that your computer may be infected -- sounds like you've been having a devil of a time with it. :(

Alas, we cannot work on malware detection/removal in this part of the General MBAM forum.

The following information will help you get started on the cleaning process.

Excellent, self-help troubleshooting info for getting MBAM to run on an infected machine can be found here.

And there are specific, self-help malware removal instructions here.

If you would like expert assistance with cleaning your system, there are 3 support options from which to choose:

  • Option 1 -- Free, Expert advice in the Malware Removal Forum
  • Option 2 -- Free support for paying customers using MBAM PRO -- Contact MBAM Support via email
  • Option 3 -- Premium, Fee-Based Support


As we don't deal with malware removal in this General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so that a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • First, please print out, read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete.
  • If the infection has so crippled the computer that you cannot follow most/all of the requested steps, then please just proceed as advised below:
  • Then please post a NEW topic here.
  • When posting your new thread, please make sure that, under "options", you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification, so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you free, one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer such as (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

IMPORTANT NOTE:Please DO NOT post back to your topic or "bump" it within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count from zero. Helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post, helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus may overlook your post. This will only delay your obtaining assistance.

  • o If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    o You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.


Alternatively, as a paying customer using MBAM PRO, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org or here.


If you would like to use the Malwarebytes Premium Services (Comprehensive solutions to all your computer support needs -- from installation and set-up to troubleshooting and tune-ups), please go to the Malwarebytes Premium Services support site.

Please be patient -- someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.

Thanks very much!


PS: Please use the zMn2t.jpg button instead of other ones when you reply here and at the other forums, so that it will be easier to read. :)
