Malwarebytes won't run, QT5Widgets.dll error

Recommended Posts


This morning, my wife clicked on an ad (off the main google page) that took her to a suspect site.  We tried to run malwarebytes to ensure that there were no problems.  The first time we ran it, it opened fine, but said it needed an update.  After installing the update, it no longer opens.  A notification icon appears in the notification tray but disappears when you mouse over it.

The windows event log reads as:


Faulting application name: mbam.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x56e065b4
Faulting module name: Qt5Widgets.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x555bbfbd
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0018f425
Faulting process id: 0x15f4
Faulting application start time: 0x01d1b43dfefd4b23
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\Qt5Widgets.dll
Report Id: bbe81faf-f0fa-43ec-b60b-898170e6b40e
Faulting package full name: 
Faulting package-relative application ID: 

I tried running all 13 malwarebytes chameleon processes, as well as doing a clean remove and reinstall of malwarebytes, with no avail.

I have attached the results of the farbar scan.

Hopefully this helps!
