  1. Hello! First time posting here, so I'm sorry for the long post. I transitioned from Mac to Windows a while back & I use Windows Defender in conjunction with Malwarebytes All is running well, until one night after I full scanned my laptop using Windows Defender. After that, every time I try scanning with Malwarebytes, it seems to hang in two places: Startup Items(once) & Scan File System(many times). The last scan I did was this. I tried killing it by cancelling the scan, right-clicking MB's taskbar icon & selecting 'Quit Malwarebytes'(killing it in Taskbar & just closing the window still makes the scan continuing when I re-open it), but that will result in an 'Unable to connect to server' & Malwarebytes closing if I re-open it. I tried uninstalling using CCleaner's Uninstall section, Control Panel, mb-clean.exe & Malwarebytes' own uninstaller, but most of the time, the uninstaller will be stuck too, forcing me to kill it. I don't know what to do now. The only virus I got was Win32/Gamarue.gen!A, which is already quarantined & banished by Windows Defender. Yet, Malwarebytes still has this problem. Please help me, thanks in advance! Addition.txt FRST.txt MB-CheckResults.txt
  2. Hello, I have never done a custom scan before so last night I thought I would give it a go. Its been around 5 hours (I paused it for couple of hours) and it is still on scan file system but it is not really "stuck" but it keeps going? Here is a screen shot attached. It's been 5 hours and it doesn't usually take this long. My computer is windows 10 64 bits. Does anyone know if this is crashing, malware, virus, trojon..... etc? What should I do?
