Installation stalled on "running scripts"

Recommended Posts

I've tried installing Malwarebytes and the installation keeps stalling on "running scripts".  I've run permission repair, booted into Recovery and did  the disk repair via Disk Utility all without success.

I've made 3 attempts so far and have had to force quit the installer via Activity Monitor.

Suggestions welcomed.

Can you send me your install logs?

In the Finder, choose Go to Folder from the Go menu, then enter the following path in the window that opens:


Then click the Go button.

In the folder that opens, find the install.log file. It will probably be too large to send as is, so compress it. Control-click on the install.log file, then choose Compress "install.log" from the contextual menu that appears.

Unless there's something very atypical about your system, it will not be able to create the install.log.zip file in that folder, and will instead create it on the desktop. Send that install.log.zip file attached to direct message to me. (Hover your mouse over my profile picture, then click the Message button in the profile overlay that pops up.)
