MBAM won't run, and other seemingly me-specific problems

Recommended Posts


To be upfront, I know NOTHING about ANYTHING like this...

However, I CAN follow instructions and the last few tomes I have had a malware infection, I have searched it, read what others had done and rid myself of it.

This time... it's different. I'm punching desks and willing back tears.


I have tried re-naming the .exe file... nothing.

I have tried rebooting in safe mode to run MBAM... nothing.

I was excited about an option telling me to go to RUN, type: devmgmt.msc, go to VIEW, go to SHOW HIDDEN DEVICES... NON PLUG AND PLAY DRIVERS and look for something called TDSSserv.sys... or four or five other similar things...


I have attempted to uninstall MBAM but when I go to UNINSTALL PROGRAMS and click on it, it pops a prompt that says: "THE PARAMETER IS INCORRECT"...

I don't know what I've done to allow this monster in, nor what I can do-- if anything-- to exorcise it, but any help would be immensely appreciated.

Thank You,
