Malwarebytes fails to run.

Recommended Posts

I usually use AVG free, but recently my laptop has been running rather slow, and I was thinking perhaps AVG wasnt picking up something, a friend suggested Malwarebytes. I installed, updated and ran the program without a problem to find a had a couple cookies. So I was feeling fairly chuffed that not much was wrong. This was probably a week ago.

Today, when I opened firefox, the AVG resident shield pops up having dected "Trojan horse Agent2.GUF"

I tried to remove these via AVG but I'm told "The action was interrupted by user."

So I try running Malwarebytes, And I get the message;

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware has stopped working

A Problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

Widows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Does anyone have any idea how to get it working again?

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling(via a pen drive).

The same message appeared while uninstalling, but it continued to uninstall.

The message also appeared when reinstalling, but it still continued to install.

My knowledge is not great about computers so I dont want to risk doing things on my own without the advice of people who are more familiar with these sort of things :]

Thanks for the quick reply!

I followed the instrustions for the first two links, and they do no solve the problem I seem to have.

I'm trying to thrid one, but have found windows cannot open the RootRepeal.rar file. Any idea why?

I'm going to go ahead and download, install and run HijackThis for the time being and see what that comes up with :]
