Make a clean install of Malwarebytes, full instructions at this link: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/146017-mbam-clean-removal-process-2x/


Run threat scan again, does it complete? if so post its log..




Windows Firewall and System Restore are turned OFF, did you turn them off?

Hi Kevin, thanks for the reply.
About p2p... The software is turned off and disabled, I can uninstall it if it helps...
About the clean install - I installed malwarebytes on this computer yesterday for the first time.. so it was a clean install already.
But I did the process that explained in the clean install post and then run scan again and it completed for some reason! (log attached)
About windows firewall and system restore - yes, I turned them off manually.​

Run the following after your system has been running for a couple of hours......


Download and install Speccy from here: http://www.piriform.com/speccy

Run speccy, wait until it is finished analysing, then select > File > Save as text file. Save to your desktop or a folder of your choice. Open the text file, have a look under "Summary" are the temps excessive?

Attach the file to your reply, ensure to remove the serial number under "Operating System" that is your licence key...
