Can't run applications - "The extended attributes are inconsistent."

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have some nasty malware that is preventing me from running applications that require the administrator to verify the disclaimer by pressing "Yes".

When I try to run a program, my screen is dimmed and I get the disclaimer popup for a brief moment, and then the popup closes and I get the following error message:

"The extended attributes are inconsistent."




Unfortunately this prevents me from being able to run Malwarebytes.

I tried to use Chameleon, however all 13 of Chameleon's programs were blocked in the same way.


Therefore I booted into safe mode and ran Malwarebytes from there.

I did not have any issues running Malwarebytes in safe mode, and the scan removed 14 objects.

I booted back into regular Windows however and the problem persisted.


I simply have no idea what I must do.

Please help if you can, I can't use my computer anymore and very much need your assistance!


I am running Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview, Build 10122

Thank you for your time!
