Can't launch MBAM, I think is an attack

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody.

My problem is a little strange, but I'll try to explain what is happening:

I'm using MBAM for a long time, and currently I've my PC protected with an anti-malware, MBAM Pro, and an anti-virus, MSEssentials.

Today, suddenly, MBAM stopped working. Something wrong happened:

-- First, I've got a normal message on the screen indicating that the MB had found a trojan - but the statement suggested that the trojan would be a file of MBAM itself!

-- When I tryed to run MBAM, it says that one specific file was needed to iniciate the program.

-- At the same time, Firefox was mysteriously deleted from the computer - as if it was self-uninstalled, as it happened in the old Mission Impossible serials :-)

-- And the MSE also crashed, with the some indication of a missing file.

So I had to uninstall and reinstall MSE, and the same for the MB. And also I had to reinstall Firefox, of course. At this time, the MSE appears to be working properly. I scanned the PC, and not detected any problem.

But MB, although reinstalled, still does not work. A message appears saying that is not possible to launch the program because the file MSVBVM60.dll does not exist.

I don't know how to solve the problem. And, worse, I do not know where it was originated. Nor why Firefox disappeared and my safety programs, MBAM and MSE, were affected.

Can you help me, please?

Thank you very much.

It appears that forum Admin AdvancedSetup replied to your other topic >>HERE<<, with a suggestion to have one of our malware experts check your system for you? :)

We can't actually do in-depth diagnostic and repair work in this area of the forum. :(

So, please start by reading this pinned topic >>RIGHT HERE<<.

Please follow as many of the instructions there as you can.

Then, please start a NEW post, with the requested scan logs, if possible, in the malware removal section >>RIGHT HERE<<.

One of the experts will assist you there.

That's what I wanted to do, but (I think maybe because I'm a bit tired right now) I post the same thing in the same place, instead of going to the malware removal section... Shame on me. :(

I'm truly sorry. You can delete this post, of course. Sorry again.
