Cannot Load Malwarebytes - or Hijackthis!

Recommended Posts

Hello - I have been working on this problem for a few days now and it is driving me nuts. I have been all over the web reading forums, trying various fixes, etc. all to no avail. I have McAfee VS, but it will not scan. I have installed and uninstalled Malwarebytes a dozen times. Each time, it will load, update and start to scan. It scans for about 3 seconds, then just closes on its own. Everytime I try to restart it, I get ""Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I have also tried downloading Hijackthis - but get the same error everytime I try to run it. The only thing I have that will work is AdAware. It has detected a few things, but nothing ever seems to fix my big problems. Please help! I was able to run a pareto virus scan earlier - but did not want to pay for the product key. It found the following:

64.111.196 Cookie

Yadro Cookie

Viewpoint (registry entry)


I have since uninstalled the pareto program.

Let me know what additional information you need.
