I have the vimax malware and can't get malwarebytes to run. I suspect the malware is preventing any type of cleaning programs from running. Please help. Thanks.

Due to a lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
