Recent re-install, Malwarebytes still 'crippled'.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


First of all, peer 2 peer programs are off and have been prevented from starting with Windows in msconfig.


I formatted 2 or 3 weeks ago and some problems still persist. The computer behaves strangely sometimes.


Using Internet Explorer, my Total Defense anti-virus website checker usually has green, amber or red icons next to links in Facebook and Google. Instead I see small squares with a black x within. This problem has persisted since before the recent re-install.


When I start the computer, alos as before the recent re-install, Malwarebytes Pro sometimes does not start and when it does, it's usually crippled. Malicious website protection is disabled and if it's not, after a few seconds it is. Clicking 'fix now' does not always fix it. Sometimes exiting Malwartebytes and re-starting it cures the problem, at other times it's necessary to re-install Malwarebytes over the top. That always fixes it...... temporarily. Most times I hibernate the pc and today when I woke the computer from hibernation, Malwarebytes did not start and it was running at last shutdown.


After I started Malwarebytes today, for the first time a dialogue box popped up: "Malwarebytes was unable to load the Anti-Rootkit DDA Driver, this error may be cause by rootkit activity. Do you want to reboot the system and attempt to install the driver?"


Afterwards, all seemed fine and a scan of the OS drive with MB turned up nothing. Also, the MB anti-root kit program with current signatures found nothing.


I am at a loss about what to do next. May I have some help please?


I cannot post the FRST and Addition logs because they make the post too long but I'll attach them if desired.
