alright... i google searched and cannot seem to answer how to run malwarebytes from my usb stick before my problem begins. i know how to change the boot order sequence - set it to boot from usb first. a friend of mine also suggested that it can be the MBR... as it sounds like it could be a boot record issue?

mmm no.

You run it like u'd run any other application you would usually install, start>all programs>Malwarebytes.

Remember we are doing the virus scan addressing the login problem, don't worry, a few of us are attending to different problems at a time, i myself got lost. :P

remember that the problem is the computer not being able to boot up past the windows loading screen, therefore i do not have access to the start menu. I installed malwarebytes to my external harddrive and during installation, updated it's virus definitions. i am able to get to command via pressing f8 during boot up and selecting dells "recover your pc" menu.

My bad , well my expertise only runs to the virus part of it, one of the other members must have helped you with this part of it.

Sorry i can't be of any assistance any further.

This is getting frustrating... I don't know what drive letter my external harddrive is in order to run mbam.exe (malwarebytes) on this computer. i've tried going down all the alphabet letters

Windows 7 Professional x64

Hello Nano3,

Open up a copy of Device Manager. In the bottom pane, it shows a graphic, which makes it very easy to find which volumes have which letters.

Hope this helps,
