1. Boot the Computer with Hiren's Boot CD
The first step is to boot the computer from the disc. Firstly you need to shut down and then restart. When the operating system screen comes on with the BIOS screen, ytou need to select the "F10" key to bring the Boot Menu to the screen. Your M/B may have a different 'F' key for the boot menu but it should say this on boot up. You should tap the various F-keys for the Boot Menu repeatedly until the menu comes to the screen.
When the Boot Menu appears, it gives a list of the available hard drives, disk drives, and flash media ports from which the computer is able to start, choose "Disk Drive," then press "Enter."

After the computer loads your Boot CD, you can navigate with the arrow keys and select "Mini XP" and press "Enter," the CD will then boots into an environment which is similar to Windows XP. Once window loads,  select "Start" in the lower left of the screen, then "Programs," then "Windows Explorer." The window should open and show all the drives on both the computer and Boot CD.

3. Accessing Malware Bytes
Within the Boot CD are 100's of programs. Firstly launch the HBCD Menu Program Launcher. Once it opens, click on the "Programs" menu in the upper left, then hover over "Antivirus/Spyware" to select "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware." Ignore the error regarding using the local drive and press any key on the keyboard to close the window. Once the Malware Bytes opens, select the "Updates" tab and click on "Check for Updates," this will guarantee you have the latest virus/spyware definitions. Once the update is finished please click ok.

Double-check that all files have a check mark next to them, then click the "Remove Selected" button.Once this process is complete, the user can shut down the computer, then boot it back on the hard drive.
I would advise running a full scan a second time just to be on the safe side.
Thanks,
Matt
