Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Version is not working

Recommended Posts

This is on an AMD 32 bit Windows XP Home system with Panda Security 2013.


Recent installs of Malwarebytes, 2 recent versions, result in generating an error *immediately* when Malwarebytes is started.

I have seen the request for logs and will post them in a reply here.


Other things:

When it fails, sometimes the failure doesn't say "Malwarebytes failed".  Rather, it says "anti~mal~ware tool" failed.

This same thing happens to RogueKiller.

I wonder if Panda might have anything to do with it?


The system has been scanned with any number of good scanning tools that normally do the job.  Not much found or removed.  Nothing alarming certainly.

The system is fully up to date re Microsoft updates.

SFC has been run.

CHKCSK has been run.

The hard drive tests OK.

The memory tests OK.

For the MBAM 0xc000001d issue, this computer is affected by an issue we are seeing on older machines with CPUs that are currently incompatible with the latest version of our program and one of it's components.

We believe we have a workaround in place that will allow you to run MBAM
You'll first need to download and install it from here:

At the final installation screen, do not click Finish. Leave that screen open, and continue below.

Next...download the file - Malwarebytes_2.1.8_SSE2_Hotfix.exe - from this link and save it to your desktop, or other easy to access location.


Next...double click on the file to open it and follow the prompts.

A command window will open.
You should see several messages indicating files had been copied.
Click OK on the message box and press any key to close the command window which opened.

Now, click Finish on the installation screen, and MBAM should open without issue.

Let me know if that works.
