Malwarebytes ruins Userinit Logon Application??

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Every time Malwarebytes requires a reboot to delete some malware, I get flooded with Data Execution Prevention errors after the reboot, like this one:

Data Execution Prevention

To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.

Name: Userinit Logon Application

Publisher: Microsoft Corporation


The first few (3) times, I thought, s***, Malwarebytes found something really bad that infected my Windows system files and removing it must have corrupted them, so I happily reinstalled Windows and all my software.

Now it's happening to me again and damned if Malwarebytes has EVER been able to reboot my computer without messing up these system files, no matter what it's trying to remove!

I am starting to think my problems are being caused by Malwarebytes's code to remove files, and not malware at all.

I really don't want to re-pave my computer AGAIN. Suggestions?
