error: Mbamchameleon Failed to obtain file name information

Recommended Posts

I noticed my system was feeling a bit sluggish the past few days and finally found out why.  Ever since I installed the new 2.0 version of mbam my Windows System Event Log is getting filled with the following message:


Mbamchameleon Failed to obtain file name information - C00000D4       ID 61703 (Category: 4352)


If I leave the mbam protection module resident I get these messages.  They are being generated at the rate of some 2500 messages per second!  No wonder my system disk's I/O is a bit slow these days.


I have been a licensed user of mbam since the beginning.  I am a computer tech who has used your tool to great effect for years.  I am very surprised at this error and would like to know what to do about it.  


Thank you.

Thank you for your quick response.  The removal/clean/re-install seems to have it working now.  Sorry, I didn't know about the FAQs, this the first time I've had any cause to use the Forum.


May I suggest that a 









block with some watchdog counter might be a better way to deal with such a file information error?

Spamming syslog is one of those bugs that can seriously impact a system's performance and can very time-consuming for a field tech to track down.


Anyway, so far so good.  Again, thanks for your response and thanks to all of you for a wonderful piece of antimalware.
