Unable to install or update MBAM on Win10Pro

Recommended Posts

I am unable to install MBAM 3.0.x on my Win10 Pro machine except when I boot into Safe Mode.  This also applies when doing updates to MBAM, it says update available, Download and Install, and then when it comes to install it fails with the same error.

I can install under Safe Mode but as soon as I boot normally, the version changes to 3.0.0 and then says there are updates available.

Same thing happens if I try to update in Safe Mode, it'll update to but as soon as I boot normally it's back to 3.0.0

@jafea  I'd like to see what else is running on this machine and possibly causing the interference.

Can you please attach a copy of the MBAMService.log located in the following folder?

In order to locate the file, you'll need to be able to see hidden folders.

Also, this next scanner will not make any changes to your machine on its own, nor will it divulge any personal information that may compromise your security.

  Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/ and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system

  **After you click the Download Now 64-bit, or the Download Now 32-bit, another page will open -- DO NOT CLICK ANY ADDITIONAL 'download now' buttons, just wait and look toward the bottom of your browser for the option to Run or Save. Click Save.

•Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.

Note: If you are prompted by Windows SmartScreen, click More info followed by Run anyway.

•Click the Scan button.

•When the scan has finished, it will make produce 2 logs in the same directory the tool was run from. Please attach the following logs to your next reply:

I can't, I had to force remove MBAM because not only wouldn't it install/update, it was causing the machine to slow down/stop responding, and it wouldn't uninstall cleanly.

I'm now left with one file that doesn't want to be deleted (MBAMWsc.exe) no matter what I try, eg. Safe Mode, Takeown, SetACL.

Last thing to try is delete it via a Linux OS.

Until I get rid of it, MBAM won't be getting reinstalled.

OK, after cleaning MBAM out of the system completely, tried to install it again, same result: Runtime Error (at 14:76)  Could not call proc

Attached is the setup log and the results from FRST x64, there is no service log as MBAM won't even install unless it's in Safe Mode which shouldn't be necessary to do.

BTW, is there a download area for the last version of MBAM v2 so I can reinstall that?
