Malwarebytes AntiMalwaare won't run due to infection and Chameleon isn't working.

Recommended Posts

One day mbam was working after I was surfing the web, the next time I got on my PC, it wasn't. I've tried to run Chameleon, but it can't start mbam saying that it can't find the files. I'm installing a 2nd copy from here, but it turns out that an something on my PC is suppressing it's use. Now I'm know it's a virus or something since I was on a website that I normally don't visit (trust me, I won't be going there again). I've ran the new set of Chameleons, and it says  in red "Malwarebytes nti-Malware has terminated - unable to start the scan" and this is the first one out of 13.
