Can't open malewarebytes - "The Requested Resource Is In Use"

Recommended Posts

I've tried installing malwarebytes and malewarebytes anti root kit. Whenever I double click or "Run as administrator" I get the message "The Requested Resource Is In Use"

Ugh so frustrating! I've been Googling forever and can't seem to find a solution. Have had this problem for months now!

I have a Origin PC with Windows 10. Please help!

So only selecting drivers I found 1 malware "ndistpr64.sys".

I can now run malwarebytes and running the scan. It found nothing. Found just an ad rootkit malware and i quarantined that. I wonder where the 6647 viruses came from?

  • Root Admin

Sorry for the delay, been out all day. Please restart the computer and then run the following - run a new Threat Scan with Malwarebytes to make sure it's clean now.


Please run the following steps and post back the logs as an attachment when ready.


  • If you're already running Malwarebytes 3 then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • If you don't have Malwarebytes 3 installed yet please download it from here and install it.
  • Once installed then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.
  • Once the scan is completed click on the Export Summary button and save the file as a Text file to your desktop or other location you can find, and attach that log on your next reply.
  • If Malwarebytes won't run then please skip to the next step and let me know on your next reply.


Please download AdwCleaner by Malwarebytes and save the file to your Desktop.

  • Right-click on the program and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Accept the Terms of use.
  • Wait until the database is updated.
  • Click Scan.
  • When finished, please click Clean.
  • Your PC should reboot now if any items were found.
  • After reboot, a log file will be opened. Copy its content into your next reply.

Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here.
  • Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well.
