  1. Hello. I have trouble with I think Malware, my Mozilla keep open up a tab with ads eventho its closed or the laptop not connected to internet at all. I have tried using Adwcleaner but it just didn't work at all. Malwarebytes won't open and Malwarebytes chameleon didn't work at all. Please I need your help.
  2. I installed MBAM a long time ago and all seemed well. Then discovered Chameleon and thought I'd install it to be on the safe side. Now when I try to open MBAM, nothing happens. Windows 10 PC. Not sure what else might be relevant to the issue...
  3. Haven't seen an option to run Chameleon on Malwarebytes since several updates ago. Does it still exist? A search through these forums indicate that folks are still using it.
  4. Recently I have been unable to start Malwarebytes. When i try to start the program it thinks for a few second then doesnothing. I have read other forums on this topic and have tried some solutions. I tried downloading and running Chameleon. When I run chameleon it seems to work and everything goes smoothly however it ends up just installing Malwarebytes again. Following this new installation of malwarebytes it tells me there is a new version and asks me to install the update. If I install the update I am once again unable to open Malwarebytes. Currently i am stuck with an older version of Malw
  5. I was using AVG anti virus and mb3-setup-consumer- Mouse behaviour If left untouched for a period, my mouse needed a button click in order to function. It seemed to be moving slowly, and would drift upwards, when hovering over a link. Modded the setup to max speed, but it still wasn't right. (In all my decades of computing, I've never experienced this mouse behaviour) I had watched F1 via a stream - many such streams launch an advert new window if the stream page is clicked. This would be a good way of forcing the user to click the page. Opening a n
  6. Hello! Whenever I try to open Malwarebytes, my computer thinks for a second and then nothing happens. I downloaded Chameleon and tried all of the options, but none of them opened the DOS window. Any help is appreciated.
  7. FIrst I should note that I am running the free version of Malwarebytes. I received a notification that Malwarebytes detected an issue through my Windows 7 pop-up notification tray. When I clicked on it to see the status of Malwarebytes and the "issue" nothing happened. Now when I attempt to run Malwarebytes the program won't open. A quick Google search led me to Chameleon but that doesn't seem to be helping either. No matter what icon I click on provided in the zip file I can't see the Chameleon program I've seen in screenshots that shows the different Tests. I click on each one and a DOS wind
  8. Hello MBAM support. Today, I pluged in a USB into my computer and I noticed my files had been changed to direct accesses. Unfortunately I clicked one and the problems started from there. I have ESET Endpoint Antivirus and immediately after trying to open a .docx document a notification started popping up about a URL adresss being blocked. Every 5-10 seconds the notification appears again and it has never stopped since. At first, I tried restarting my computer but it did not work, the notification continued. Then I heard of MBAM and installed it but the program would not run. So, I went an
  9. Hello! I am a real novice when it comes to dealing with Malware but I think I may have an infection. My disk usage often runs up to 100% leaving me unable to run programs or do anything. The exact symptoms differ with every boot. Sometimes my desktop loads without a background picture. I tried to run Malwarebytes to scan my pc but it will not open beyond asking if I want to run it in a UAC window. I tried to run Chameleon but it terminates after a brief scan. I can't seem to copy a log from it either but ive seen the same error report on other forums. Is there any advice an
  10. We frequently have to deploy chameleon on many machines at a time, but it installs MBAM 2 not 3. This is a PITA because customers now expect the latest version and upgrading everything manually is not an option. Chameleon doesn't like a renamed MBAM3 setup and goes on to download and install MBAM2. Is there a command line option or something to make it install MBAM3? Pleeease, think about guys deploying on many machines!
  11. MBAM-Chameleon ver. Windows 7 Program is stuck & computer will not respond. Currently stating, "Waiting for scan to complete" -------- (blinking) (FOREVER ~16 hrs) Closed 2nd MBAM screen that gave me a root-kit error: 200025 Unable to open Task Manager Don't want to turn off computer & risk causing an issue.
  12. Okay so my microphone has been automatically muting itself through the windows sound properties. I was told it was malware and to end task named svchost.exe that's under my current user profile. So I did that and booted up Malware to clean up the system it didn't find anything until it went to heuristic analysis. It finds the pup in the image below and when I press removal selected it seems to freeze then crash. If I open it back up the following programs are in the history and I press delete selected and restart my computer (without being prompt to do so) and when my computer comes back I sca
  13. So over the last few days I've noticed that my internet connection would drop for every device in the house when my PC was turned on. I tried changing to a wireless connection but unfortunately I would have the same problem. I think that it could be some sort of malware causing this and my suspicion of malware is only strengthened because I can't open Malware bytes. I've tried using Malwarebytes chameleon but that seems launch and scan, but always fails. I've tried other free malware/virus removers and they haven't found anything but my experience with malwarebytes in the past tells me the oth

  15. Hi! I've been suffering with some malware that opens ads on the web browser (ad block is not working anymore) and don't let me download some softwares, like antivirus, including Malwarebytes, and my windows Firewall is constantly deactivating. I had to download Malwarebytes from other computer and copy here, but it didn't open. So I tried to use the Chameleon, but this is what happens: MBAM-Chameleon ver. Press any key to continue Installing Driver... Protected Path: C:\Users\hehe_\Desktop\mbam-chameleon-\Chameleon\Windows\ ...Done! Trying to start Malwarebyt
  16. Hello. I tried running Malwarebytes and it was taking 18 to 24 hours and still not completing with a total of around 300,000 files scanned. I ran at least 5 different Chameleons, and each time they appeared to run. I then ran Malwarebytes again to see if it would scan faster and it still took 18+ hours to scan and never completed. I downloaded Farbar and ran it. I am attaching the files. Thanks for any help you can give me. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  17. When I reboot from avast software program and anvirus definition update it gets an error "The application was unable to start properly (0xc0000906). Click OK to close the application.", same goes to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Many pop-ups from windows defender appears that malware is blocked, later then I found out I'm being infected by Trojan:Win32/Patched.AP (quarantined then removed) from a simple scan thanks to the only remaining antimalware that still can open during this time, Windows Defender, when another antimalware that I can open fail to do so (Iobit Malware-fighter). But that has n
  18. About an hour chrome started redirecting all my searches to Yahoo, as well as my home page. I checked the homepage and search setting in chrome and they are unchanged. I downloaded and ran CCleaner. Problem not solved. I downloaded Malwarebytes (I had McAfee installed already but I couldn't find a scan button on it) but it refused to open. I downloaded Malwarebytes Chameleon and it opened, ran through to when it asks to update MBAM and has been sat there for about 25 minutes. Is this normal? Is it working? What else can I try?

  20. Hi there. My log in screen was loading super slowly, so I decided I should probably run a Malwarebytes scan. It wouldn't open when I clicked on the shortcut, so I tried to go through Chameleon. Clicked all 13 options, no cmd prompt came up. Tried going in through the program in the Chameleon program folder. Nothing. Looked on the forums, dowloaded rkill, and it wouldn't open. Revosetup wouldn't open. I can't open the "uninstall programs" option of the control panel. I even tried to uninstall the program I suspected (since I didn't remember downloading it) through the cmd prompt and it said s
  21. I have a laptop that I use sparingly for school and leisure. It runs on Windows 7 and has never given me any problems, really, other than being unable to play videogames. It suffices for email, internet, and schoolwork, so that is enough for me. However, one thing led to another, and recently after trying every tactic I can think of in my limited knowledge of the IT industry, I have come to the conclusion that my recent sufferings in memory usage, freezing during web use, and overall cpu performance are a result of some undetectable form of malware. After scouring the web for advice on how
  22. Hello I have a potential infection on my laptop, which I believing I have been dealing with for several weeks, at least. I noticed the expert help on these forums, so I decide to come here. I will focus on my pc's current symptoms, as I have applied fixes with varying results. Symptoms: 1) Malwarebytes will not open 2) MBAM Chameleon successfully opens but encounters the following error: Updating MBAM. . . Response from update : Failed to start the update Killing known malicious processes, please wait. . . Mbam-killer timeout set to 1800 seconds. Mbam-kill
  23. Everyday I run Malwarebytes Premium first thing in the morning. Yesterday, it would not start. So, I ran Chameleon. Chameleon couldn't get it going, either. Next, I went back to an earlier restore point (1-1-15). That didn't help. I uninstalled Malwarebytes Premium because I have a program disk. It still wouldn't start. After that, the day becomes a bit of a blur. By trying various things and trial programs the situation would improve temporarily. My main symptoms are extremely slow startup (20-25 minutes), Malwarebytes Premium, sometimes working, sometimes not, and my mouse pointer
  24. My computer has started working in a way that would point to their being some type of infection. When I try to open Malwarebytes nothing happens and when I run Chameleon it fails to update and eventually terminates due to the inability to start the scan. Please help me fix this problem.
  25. Malwarebytes not working, Chameleon didn't work either, tried running in safe mode and running updated zip file of chameleon and still nothing, ran rkill still cant get malwarebytes to run? Where do I go from here?
