I have just installed MEE everything seemed to go well until I tried to open Malwarebytes on one ov the desktops

I get the errors in the following picture.


I also included a screen shot of the entry in the event log.


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have run combofix, spybot search and destroy, CCleaner, I have run, created and analyzed a HiJack This log I have run and analyzed the logs form the link provided above non of the logs provide anything suspicious, I have attempted not all but most of the methods provided in this link http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=85715. I am running Microsoft Malicious Software Removal tool now, it is half way done and has not found anything yet. Once the MS MSRT finishes I will ry safe mode.

I run AVG anti-virus it also will not open as well, instead I am presented with the same error.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In thirteen years of cleaning computers I have never had problems opening any security program

I would suggest following the advice from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and having one of the Experts assist you with looking into your issue. Thanks

It is best to do as AdvancedSetup already recommended you to do.....

Do not run any tools as you can make things worst, also it will be hard for any helper to give you the help you need it you are following the advice from too many folks....

So post where AdvancedSetup directed you to, and someone will help you there, you just have to be patient....

Well FireFox as I have said, I ran Combo fix which removed meaningless files for the remote support software I use and some Windows Cache files, I ran Spybot which removed one BHO, one piece of Ad-ware and two tool bars, I ran CCleaner which deleted internet cache and other junk files I ran MS MSRT which found nothing, I was able to run AVG and MWB in safe mode both found nothing. I created several logs such as Hijack this and found nothing but a few BHOs. All of which of course did not resolve the issue. As I said I have been cleaning malware off computers for thirteen years and have never had an issue with security software not running as intended, what would anybody be able to tell me about normal logs that I could not tell my self. I work on PCs for a living, I do not have time to post on a forum and just sit back and wait for a response. I will post to a forum asking for help, but while I wait for a response I continue to search for an answer.

Fortunately because I did not stop looking, I was able to find the solution. I searched for the long hexadecimal number listed in the event viewer in the registry and deleted the key. There was a separate one for AVG and Malwarebytes, I deleted them both and rebooted the computer. Now AVG and Malwarebytes both work as intended.
