MS removal blocking safe mode boot + OTL download

Post by mayhawke on Sun May 01, 2011 1:34 pm

Ok. I have MS Removal tool on my system (XP). I've spent a morning reading up on it and have tried the following:

Booting in Safe Mode - MSRT prevents opening in safe mode.
Downloading Malwarebytes - MSRT blocked the download.
Having a friend download it to disk - MSRT blocked the install.
Friend burned opened MAB file to disk to see if we could run it from CD drive - MSRT blocked run
Downloading OLT - MSRT blocks download.

I can access the net but cannot download anything that might be of use.

Any advice?

Hello.
See if RKill works.

We need to use the RKill Tool by Grinler

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Please Download Rkill.com. Save it to your Desktop.
  • Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] if you are not sure how.

  • NOTE: If you are unable to connect to the site to download rkill, then you should download it to a clean computer and copy it to the infected one via a USB flash drive or CDROM.

  • Once it is downloaded, double-click on the rkill.com in order to automatically attempt to stop any processes associated with Rogue programs.
  • Please be patient while the program looks for various malware programs and ends them.
  • When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step.
NOTE: If you get a message that rkill is an infection, do not be concerned. This message is just a fake warning given by the rogue program, when it terminates programs that may potentially remove it. If you run into these infections warnings that close Rkill, a trick is to leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this typically will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that rkill can terminate the rogue program. So, please try running Rkill until the malware is no longer running. You will then be able to proceed with the rest of the steps.

If you continue having problems running rkill.com, you can download:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
which are renamed copies of rkill.com, and try them instead.

Ok, Well MSRT is closing the download pretty much as soon it starts for all three variants.

Getting a friend to download it and see how it goes.

RKill isn't a solution, RKill is only designed to stop the malware to let us remove it.

It will come back after a reboot.
