  1. While I ran the mb_clean program, an alert box (command line box) popped up once briefly with a message something like location "I:\program " does not exist. I assume it was looking for the folder "I:\program files". Sometimes, even in Windows XP, script programs have trouble with long file names (longer than 8 characters) or file names that contain spaces. Maybe there is some indication in FRST_logs_Nov_27_2017.zip or in mb-clean-results.txt . Maybe this alert is related to the incomplete cleaning.
  2. Hello, Thanks for reading through the log files and for the suggestions.
  3. Here is the latest pair of log files. The MB... hangs with 0% CPU, so I put the two files in a zipped folder. Thanks for any suggestions. FRST_logs_Nov_27_2017.zip
  4. Thanks for the quick response. I ran that program, but the cleaning was not complete. That computer still has about 100% CPU usage at idle. I attach the output file from the procedure. mb-clean-results.txt
  5. Yes. The computer is not useful now, but it boots. I'm curious what my options are. Thanks,
  6. I am having trouble with and without MBAM 3.3.1 even with all available updates. I tried turning off the self-protection feature, and turning off protection for certain applications. I also tried completely uninstalling MBAM 3.3.1. Even after what appeared to be a successful uninstall, CPU usage remains near 100%. The computer involved runs Windows XP. I attach the MB-check results with MBAM 3.3.1, and the FRST output text files after uninstalling MBAM 3.3.1. The MB script program crashed each time, so I put them into a zip file. I would like to make a clean and thorough uninstall. Maybe these uploaded files will help with development. Thanks, mb-check-results_with_MBAM_3.3.1.zip FRST_results_without_MBAM_3.3.1.zip
  7. I installed Malwarebytes component package version: 1.0.236 update package version: 1.0.3179 I'm continuing my previous thread (Windows XP). The Malwarebytes 3.3.1 update solved a lot of problems (even problems that persisted after I completely uninstalled Malwarebytes). Most everything seems to work now and I no longer have the 100% CPU usage that existed after I uninstalled Malwarebytes. (New version solved this problem.) Thanks much. Internet browsers are still a problem. Mozilla-Firefox is unreliable with default. Google Chrome doesn't work with default. Neither crashes, but they pretend to start and then hang with just a tiny stub in the task manager with 0% CPU. I solved these problems for Firefox and Chrome by using the "Manage Protected Applications" settings to disable protection for Firefox, Chome, and Internet Explorer.
  8. I updated successfully to the new Malwarebytes consumer (premium) on M$-Windows XP SP3 32-bit, but Firefox ESR 45.9.0 and Thunderbird 52.3.0 would each fail to start, presenting the window offering to submit a crash report (to Mozilla). Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112 and SAS 9.3 both started and ran fine. I tried turning off Malwarebytes protection features, one-by-one, even turning off protection specifically for Firefox. The only way I could restore functionality for Firefox and Thunderbird was to remove Malwarebytes and reinstall Malwarebytes (premium). I upgraded Malwarebytes to the latest version on a Windows 7 laptop. It works fine, but does not have Thunderbird. Thanks for any suggestions
