How to manually remove Risktool.win32.mbrfix guide. Only for ADVANCED users.

  • Step 1: Basic check for Risktool.win32.mbrfix activity

    Check running processes on your system. Usually you can find Risktool.win32.mbrfix process running. Use the Ctrl+Shift+Esc buttons combination to open system information window and click Processes tab. Scroll down the whole list and try to find the process named like Risktool.win32.mbrfix. If you find Risktool.win32.mbrfix process running, right click on it and choose “End Process”. It will disable Risktool.win32.mbrfix for the current Windows session, but remember that if you do not completely remove Risktool.win32.mbrfix using next steps, then your PC will stay vulnerable to malware attack. Next steps are much more important in removing Risktool.win32.mbrfix.

  • Step 2: Disconnect your PC from the Internet

    Prevent the malware from leaking or spreading your personal data. Master Boot Record usually uses the Internet to transfer all possible and important information you have. Some Master Boot Records are not so “Active” and they can simply disable some Windows features and options. To disconnect your PC from the Internet you need to plug-off LAN cable (if you use LAN connection) or to turn of the Wi-Fi module (if you use Wi-Fi Internet connection). Most of (not 100%) Master Boot Records can not access Wi-Fi module preferences. Turning off the Internet will disable Risktool.win32.mbrfix from transferring any data from your PC.

  • Step 3: Enter the safe mode.

    The next step is very important in removing Risktool.win32.mbrfix. After turning off the Internet and disabling Risktool.win32.mbrfix process you will need to reboot your PC in so-called Safe Mode. Safe Mode is a Windows mode which allows you to start the System using only important applications and services. Safe Mode does not usually allow Risktool.win32.mbrfix to load when the system boots (!!!but exceptions can appear!!!). Choose Restart in Windows Start menu and wait until the screen turns off.

    After that you have to follow the next instructions according to the versions of Microsoft Windows you use:

      Windows XP:
    1. Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Advanced Options Menu and press ENTER.

      Windows Vista, 7:
    1. Press the F8 key repeatedly when the first screen appears.

    2. Use the arrow keys from Windows Advanced Options Menu in order to select Safe Mode and press ENTER.

      Windows 8, 8.1, 10:
    1. Press and hold the Shift button when left-clicking the Restart button on Windows log-on screen.

    2. Select Safe Mode from Windows Troubleshooting boot screen and press ENTER.

  • Step 4: Removing virus files

    Having booted your PC in Safe mode you have to start cleaning your PC manually by deleting every file associated with Risktool.win32.mbrfix one by one. Here is the list of all files associated with Risktool.win32.mbrfix. Delete all files listed below using the Shift+Delete buttons combination.
