The MBR is faked and this is obviously the tougher variant.  So we will need to fix it whilst it is inactive  

Create a Windows 7/Vista System Repair Disc 
 
Note: the below can only be done if your machine has a a type of CD/R or DVD/R optical drive installed. Also depending on the exact type of OEM your machine has you may be unable to actually create a SRD. 
 

  • Click on Start(Windows 7 Orb) >> Run...(or the Windows key and R together) to bring up the Run box, then copy/paste the following command into the box and click on OK


 recdisc.exe

  • Allow the UAC(User Account Control) prompt via selecting Yes
  • You should now see a menu like the below:-


 
 

  • Put a blank rewritable  CD/DVD in your optical(CD/DVD) drive and then click on Create disc
  • Note: If a AutoPlay window pops up, just close it. 
  • When the SRD has been created you will see the below:-


 
 

  • Now click on Close >> OK. Leave the disc in the drive as we will be using it shortly. 
  • You now have a Windows 7/Vista System Repair Disc

.
Reboot the computer and start from the CD



When you reboot you will  see this although yours will say windows 7/vista. Click repair my computer 
 
 
Select your operating system 
 
 
Select Command prompt 
 
 
At the command prompt type the following  
 
Bootrec.exe /FixMbr  [notice space between e and /]
  

  • Once finished type Exit

Re: Anti-Malware taking 50 - 99% CPU

Hi,

Sorry to have taken a few days to get back on this, work has been in the way.

 

I have tried to run Recdisc.exe as you suggested, without any success.

 

I have tried on 2 different laptops and 1 desktop, nothing doing.  Tried different discs, prepared and unprepared, no go.

 

All machines were running Vista 32.

Lets try a different option to confirm my guess...Do u have a SD memory stick?

 

Download Bootkit Remover to your Desktop.

  • Unzip downloaded file to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on boot_cleaner.exe to run the program (Vista/7 users,right click on boot_cleaner.exe and click Run As Administrator).
  • It will show a Black screen with some data on it.
  • Right click on the screen and click Select All.
  • Press CTRL+C
  • Open a Notepad and press CTRL+V
  • Post the output back here.

Re: Anti-Malware taking 50 - 99% CPU

Please click Start > Run, type notepad in the runbox and press enter.

Copy/paste the following text into Notepad and save it as fixme.bat in the same location as bootkit remover.

@echo off
remover.exe fix \\.\PhysicalDrive0
exit

Exit Notepad and doubleclick on fixme.bat to run it. 
After a reboot, rerun remover.exe and again paste the info in it here on next reply.
