malwarebytes will not launch

Recommended Posts

My free copy had been running without a hitch since installation since it came out, but now will only show the loading circle for a few seconds and then - nothing.  I have uninstalled twice and reinstalled without effect.  I am using Windows 10 (64 bit) Home Edition with all current updates.

Solved this myself by restarting Windows 10 in Safe mode.  Then ran Malwarebytes and it ran this time and found root kit malware.  Restarted again into Normal mode and the system and Malwarebytes are functioning normally.  Also note that during this time Microsoft defender kept finding and removing <Trojan:HTML/Brocoiner!rfn> from the system without effect, prompting Error code 0x80508023 which upon research means it apparently couldn't find anything to remove?  So it could find a problem, but not when it tried to fix it?

  All's well that ends well.
