But when I run FRST.exe I get the error: Line 4297 Error: Variable used without being declared.

I tried uninstalling and re-installing a fresh mbam-setup-, but I get the error:


Internal error: Expression error Runtime Error at 79:177, External exception E06D7363. (twice)


then the error Runtime Error (at 69.252) External exception E06D7363


then the error Internal error: Expression error Runtime Error at 45:89, External exception E06D7363.


MB (surprise!) then fails to launch.

OK so I have tried renaming the MB exe (to run and to install) - no effect.


In addition to the above tried the below in safe mode:

  • SuperAntiSpyware - some tracking cookies found, but no effect
  • RKILL - no effect
  • ComboFix - removed SecureW2 TTLS Manager (which allows me to connect to eduroam) - no effect
  • TDSSKiller - found suspicious service FSDFU, quarantined, no effect

I still cannot install MB.
