  1. Hello Kathy,

    Do *not* install and/or run MBAM in Safe Mode - it is designed to be at full
    power in Normal Mode, and in actual fact, uses a special driver that does not
    work in Safe Mode. >>This advice comes from the MBAM developers themselves.<<

    Using MBAM in Safe Mode should only be a *last resort* when all else fails.
    -=
    Run a Full Scan with MBAM in Normal Mode again.

    Can you cite somewhere that the MBAM developers have said that it should be
    run only in normal mode? I have found that MBAM runs faster and seems to
    catch more mice in safe mode. I'll gladly change my method if you can show me
    that they've said such a thing.

    Okay, I just did a search on MBAM's website and cannot come up with anything
    saying to not run MBAM in safe mode, so please give me a URL pointing the way.
    Thanks.

    Nobody says it shouldn't be run in Safe Mode. There are times when it may actually
    execute in Safe Mode but fail to execute in Normal Mode.

    However, some of the internal program algorithms are designed specifically for Normal
    mode.

    Does anyone know if this completely removed the virus or do I have something
    lingering. An IT person directed me to this site:
    http://windowsprotection.net/how-to-remove-trojanfraudpack-trojan-fraudpack-removal-guide/

    It located many items but would only remove them if I bought the product
    from PC Doctor. Anyone familiar with this?

    It is a trojan and NOT a virus and MBAM will remove the "trojan".
