Installing keeps asking for reboot


Recommended Posts

The same problem!

Registry  key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware_is1 - doesn't exist, all folders associated with the program  also do not exist, but log file (look attached log file) says otherwise. Version mb3-setup-consumer-3.1.2.1733.exe (MD-5 833AF1DB8881BAEADAC504AC46E93CDA) installed normal & works! Versions above 3.1.2.1733 including latest version mb3-setup-consumer-3.2.2.2029-1.0.207-1.0.2899.exe (MD-5 C83C54783CEF84E34834E0B1CD268608) cannot install and cyclical demands to continue the reboot system.

Ok!

Download with page: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1112 latest version mb-clean-3.1.0.1031.exe, reboot system in safe mode, run clean file & get log file:

Trying to delete path C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\

If specially I create itself these folders, then the subsequent at start of an installer writes that these folders are removed, but then asks restart of system, and after loading of system the installer and cleaner which give log: Can't delete again is again started.

1. Find and delete all registry keys by keywords "Malwarebytes" & "Anti-Malware", reboot, Install app MBAM v3.1.2.1733 (worked fine), go to services.msc observe Malwarebytes Service runing, type run - automatic. 

2. Run mb-clean, clean app MBAM v3.1.2.1733, go to services.msc observe Malwarebytes Service - doesn't exist, reboot system.

3. Install latest app MBAM v3.2.2.2029, automatic run mb-clean & asks to reboot system, if you click restart so in a circle after boot. Log message in file: Cannot delete folders stated by my post above.

If decompile apps 3.1.2.1733 & 3.2.2.2029 the benefit is based on Inno Setup, observe carefully in version 3.1.2.1733 does not include built-in app mb-clean. Starting with version 3.2.2.1959 and up, app mb-clean included with the installer, which possibly interferes with the installation of the program, or the install_script.iss doesn't fulfill properly.

@Coder mb-clean was added to help cover issues, it shouldn't be interfering with the installation. What's happening here is that the installer is seeing a remnant of one of our older products left over that it can't remove, so it runs mb-clean to remove it. However mb-clean doesn't see it either, but it will still try to cleanup and then reboot. Then you're back at square one.

So let's try to find what's being leftover. Can you please open a command prompt window and run the following two commands exactly as entered?

reg query hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall /s >> "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\uninstall_list.txt"
reg query hklm\software\wow6432node\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall /s >> "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\uninstall_list.txt"

This should create a file on your desktop named uninstall_list.txt. Please upload that file

That was not a general fix it was made for that other users computer. You need to do the following.

One just for you. This fix is for @Lognf Only

Please download the attached clean.zip, extract the file inside, and double click it to run it. This should delete the remnant of the old Malwarebytes product and then you should be able to install

Please post your results.

it tooks my Advanced System Cares always telling thats a PUP but I want it installed, how to I remove asc from malwarebytes?

Personally I wouldn't, It is removed for a reason.

Just restore them from quarantine then start a scan and when it finds them uncheck all of the files in the results and click next then ignore always.

Please try the following:

  1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced Options
  3. Click Clean and follow the prompts to clean and reboot your computer
  4. Once it reboots, wait a few minutes for the application to relaunch itself and follow the prompts to reinstall

If that doesn't work, please follow steps 1 and 2 above and click Gather Logs to generate a zip file on your desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and upload that zip file
