I can't install Malwarebytes: Runtime Error (at 97:137): Could not call proc

Recommended Posts

I have a gateway laptop that cannot connect to the internet but can ping successfully. I have tried all sorts of dns flushes, cmd prompt resets, I tried restoring to an earlier restore point and nothing works. I found some trojans and need to remove them but I cannot install malwarebytes now getting this error: 


Runtime Error (at 97:137): Could not call proc


Please any help would be greatly appreciated, I am stuck and have wasted hours on this.


I have followed some of the previous posts and have already ran the FRST and have the following files if this helps.


Thank you

You say the internet connection is lost since running FRST, yet you already state the connection is not working in your opening response?


I have a gateway laptop that cannot connect to the internet




I remove Chrome as the navigational address appeared to be wrong, it was listed as follows in your logs:


Chrome executable should run from following address as far as i`m aware:

C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\Chrome.exe

Regarding the internet connection, right click on the internet icon next to the clock and select "Troubleshoot problems" let me know what response it returns...

Let me clarify a little what the symptoms were initially. The Wi-Fi was connected and did not have a no internet warning, but I could not access internet anywhere or from any browser. In cmd prompt, i could ping websites successfully, but could never access them from a browser.


In addition, Initially I noticed that while I had the ethernet cable plugged in, Microsoft Security Essentials was able to update successfully, but windows updates could not connect to update or download and still no internet available.


The difference now, is the warning sign on the Wi-Fi icon in the task bar and the inability to ping anything from cmd prompt.


Thank you for the following steps. I will send the reports when they complete.
