Install Boot Loop

Recommended Posts


Every time I install, it says it needs to reboot to complete, after reboot, it tries to install, says it needs to reboot to complete, etc.

I read through: 


and I don't have the registry keys for:

1.  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware_is1

2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{35065F43-4BB2-439A-BFF7-0F1014F2E0CD}_is1

Attached are my results from Check, Clean, and FRST.

Hello @HaroldW

Can you please try this:

1. Download the mbam_clean tool from: xxx

2. Run the tool. Tool will ask you for a reboot.

3. After reboot please run the latest MB 3.3.1 build from https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3

Let us know if that worked.

The following MBST tool should be used to perform a clean removal and reinstall

Downloaded the latest clean file, ran it, rebooted.

After reboot, downloaded the 3.3.1 build, ran it, it started up and then said it needed to reboot to complete installation.

Rebooted, after reboot it automatically restarted the setup.  Click Agree, and then it says my computer must be restarted to complete the installation again.

Still stuck in the reboot loop.

Sorry for the delay, I had to go out to the customer site.  I booted into safe mode, no networking.  Ran the MB3-Setup-Consumer- and it said it would need to reboot to complete setup.

Rebooted back to safe mode, run setup, and it's back in the boot loop.

Boot back to normal mode, setup tries to continue to run but it's also back in the boot loop.

Same situation.
