So I was using malwarebytes, and I was running a quick scan, and immediatly, since I have pro, the system guard or whatever started blocking very important system files, but I am sure I had no virus.. It just happened after an update, was this just me or has this happened to others, I tried logging into my computer but it removed alot of files and I could not go past the password screen...

I am too scared to reinstall, so please, any info?

I believe you are talking about the buggy database update we had a few months ago? Please see here for more info: http://blog.malwarebytes.org/news/2013/04/yesterdays-database-update-issue/

This has been resolved 8 minutes after that update and we've made some extra improvements to our update procedure (which you can read about here: http://blog.malwarebytes.org/news/2013/04/improvements-to-our-updating-process/), so this can never happen again.
