I have a major problem with my clearing routines when I run OTL As I need to empty the temporary files I use the empty temp command, this command asks processes to stop, now with windows processes like explorer if they refuse then OTL moves on to the next. But with MBAM it just locks the system and refuses to let OTL complete. Is there any way around this or do I have to resort to either not emptying the temporary folders or get the OP to run from safe mode. This behaviour is also apparent with TFC As you can expect, someone who has an infection thinks the worst when OTL locks the system. Trying to stop or pause the MBAM service has no effect because access is denied. I can understand the reasoning behind not letting any other programme stop MBAM, but why can it not just release OTL and let it get on with it's job ?
