Very nice!! I was wondering if you could post just how you added MalwareBytes and other applications to WinPE.

Jack,

It was pretty complicated. I tried it before but it did not work, eventually I played around with it and it did work. I wanted something like this for a while. I just wanted to have it as support for my manual.

Is too much work in describing how is done, and perhaps it can be done in many ways. Mine is not 100% full proof. Whats interesting about is that Malwarebytes sais that it doesn’t work as well, in WINPE. However I tested it. I specifically infected a Virtual Machine with Adware to test the Malwarebytes in WINPE and it did find the infected files. So if you have an infected computer just download the ISO burn it and scan and clean the computer. You can even update the definitions on WinPE if your networking card is detected.

It is not complicated for a person that is well versed in customizing WINPE.

I created the WINPE with Malwarebytes CD to add value to my Computer Manual, and generate traffic to this website.

I ried to download the two iso files (i.e. WINPePDFmbam.iso and WinpeComputerManualv3.iso) from your site but the download seems to be zero bytes. can you please update the link for download?

your hard work is much appreciated.

Thank you for this disc. I was wondering if would be possible to do this with MBAM. I work in I.T. for a relatively small organization and I have made my own WinPE disc. This disc includes the necessary network drivers from Dell (the only laptops and desktops that we purchase and I need the ability to upload and download WIM files to my server) and GIMAGEX so that I can capture and apply WIM files from a GUI rather then from CLI.

For those wondering, it isn’t that difficult to made your own WinPE disc (although adding programs like MBAM can be more difficult) but it does require a little bit of time, the ability to research basic problems, and enough hard drive space to expand WIM files, manipulate files/folders that have been expanded from a WIM file.

You get the WinPE environment from the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK).
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5753

You’ll need to get network drivers from your vendor/network card manufacturer.

You can get GIMAGEX from AutoIT (a scripting utility).
http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit-tools/gimagex/

I’m thinking about incorporating your MBAM disc into my tool belt because then all I have to do is include some additional drivers so I can update it’s database.

THANKS!!!

I am not sure what exactly are you referring to when you say MBAM, but if you run MBAM on this disc you will get Malwarebytes to run and you can scan your computer with it.

Douglas Brace July 25, 2012 at 4:50 pm

I was referring to Malwarebytes. I was just using its executable name. Sorry for any confusions.

Bill Mills March 25, 2013 at 8:06 am

I just downloaded the Jan 15, 2013 of both your files and copied them to CD’s. However, when I attempt to use SAS it tells me that the definitions aren’t up to date and does not give me an option to update them and run the program. It works fine for MBAM which updates the MBAM definitions and then allows me to run the program. What am I doing wrong that I can’t get SAS to run?

Reply

admin March 25, 2013 at 9:43 am

Hello Bill,
The Sas application hasn’t been updated regularly since it always posed some problems running. The Superantispyware hasn’t been updated and that is why is giving you trouble running. It always had a few problems running. We will try to add it to the next release.

Ryan August 5, 2013 at 7:23 pm

I find that running the full scan is a wast of time. Are you maybe working on changing it up in the future so that it will still scan the system drive but as a quick scan?

Reply

admin August 5, 2013 at 7:55 pm

Ryan, that is a good observation and suggestion. I can take a look how the design of Malwarebytes was implemented to do a quick scan. However the transformation into the Malware CD will take some time to implement, that is if it will be possible only with my skill-set. In addition you can try Superantispyware Live on the Malwarebytes CD, and It will perhaps do a better job because it offers better options in malware scanning. The Malware CD is also an Antivirus CD, and you can use the antivirus live scanner as well.

I am curious if the Malwarebytes CD actually found anything for you, and if it helped you?

Ryan August 5, 2013 at 8:44 pm

The Malwarebytes CD is a great start to fixing the computer if you cant get it to book into normal or safe mode. Doesn’t remove everything but it does make it so you can boot into the OS and finish the removal. I love it and I use it all the time.

which download link above contains the “Malewarebytes ISO” needed for Malewarebytes USB boot? ….

I was wondering, if you had MBAM running on your home computer, can you just copy the MBAM folder off C: drive to a USB and run it from command prompt to scan another machine?

Reply

admin November 21, 2013 at 7:49 am

Any link contains the same ISO. You can use any of the ISO’s for the USB, but you need to extract the contents of the ISO’s not just place the ISO file on the USB stick.

Dear Sir can you add Hitman Pro to the list of tools in this PE CD ,
thank you very much for your efforts.

Reply

admin November 21, 2013 at 7:48 am

We can add HitMan pro but it will not work because the Scanner will automatically scan only a portion of the operating system. and it will be the Windows PE portion. That it why Hitmanpro will not be of service since it will not be able to scan the dormant OS.

Ran into what seems like a bug in the newest release. After you use the “updateref” command to update the files, when you try to run Malwarebytes, it goes to install the new version and gives an error that causes the system to reboot.

Lo hice en modo consola con el updateref y hace lo mismo las actualiza pero no se pueden ejecutar.

Hello,
I am able to load on my notebook Dell Latitude C540 only [November 26 ISO Update]. Anytning newer boots for 8:30 minute and ends with error:
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x0000000A
Parameteres:
0xFFFFFFE6
0x0000001F
0×00000000
0x81578FAB

What to do?

Reply

admin October 20, 2014 at 1:17 pm

Olda,

I think the problem is that the newer version of the ISO requires more resources and that is why it might not work for you. The older image is more streamlined and it doesn’t have a full GUI and perhaps that why is working for you better. As long as you can update the reference files for Malwarebytes you should use that version. I am not sure what are the specifics of the NOV 26 ISO. But if you boot up screen looks like in the guide on how to use the CD, then that is an older version of the image. Use that and run the command line command “mbam” to load malwarebytes. Then update the Malwarebytes reference file. That is possible if you are connected to the internet. To be connected to be internet you have to have your laptop connected trough an Ethernet cable and the driver for that network card should be installed, automatically. If is not, then it will not work for you.

Sorry.
