running mrt first is a key step, it removes viruses that prevent antivirus software to run and fix restrictions to security and antivirus websites that viruses aply. but it dont remove all of viruses, thats why you need mallwarebytes.

if you use mrt first to do fast scan and remove part of them, you shouldnt have problems to run malwarebytes.

mrt is integrated part of windows xp after service pack 2, you should have it installed on your pc, pity microsoft never bothered to add shortcut somewhere in start menu, you have to run .exe manualy.

click start button->run-> type in box: mrt.exe->hit enter or press ok
using quick scan should be enough to fix most damage that virus did and allow you to run malwarebytes antimalware.
