So recently i got some malware on my MacBook Pro and its become so bad i decided finally to get rid of it fully. I downloaded Malwarebyes and opened it up. When I clicked on the scan button as you would normally do, except about 10 seconds in it stopped updating at "Scanning for : Adware.IronCore" and it would not go past this. Im not sure if I'm missing that particular file or some  kind of malware is preventing it from finishing. Im not sure what to do, so if mo one knows how to help me with this Im eventually going to just bring it in to the Apple store.

Can you send a system snapshot taken with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac? To do so, open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac and choose Take System Snapshot from the Scanner menu. Then, in the window that opens, select all the text (Edit → Select All), copy it and paste into a reply to this message. Alternately, if you'd prefer not to post that information publicly, you can send me a direct message instead.

I'm having the same problem. Customer support suggested and older version, still no luck.

I would not recommend using an older version. Uninstall version 1.2.4 and download version 1.2.6, which is the most current version.

If the problem persists, I'll need to see a new system snapshot taken with that version of the software. You can either post that here, or you can choose Contact Support from the Help menu within Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac and mention my name and this discussion in the description of the problem.
