Recommended Posts

Identical to this thread:

Only, I noticed when mine went sour... immediately following the last "Windows Update".

Here are my files:

mb-check-results.zip

FWIW, I am running paid versions of MBAM on all my PCs; this is my first forray into these forums. Thanks, in advance.

Let's do 2 things in order.

First.

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\assistant.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\malwarebytes_assistant.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

Also please exclude the following folders too: (The complete folder)

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService

NEXT

Let us get a clean install of the current version. 3.3.1

 

We have another tool called MB-Clean which will automate the whole process for you.

 Tool can be found at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb_clean

 

1. After downloading the tool run the tool.

2. The tool will automatically clean up the older possibly damaged installation and will ask you for a restart.

3. Restart your system and then the MB-Clean tool will prompt you to re-install the latest product .

4. Click on "Yes" to reinstall MB 3.×.

5. Now you will have the latest product installed. If it does not offer the new install after the reboot you can download and install from here.

 Please let me know if you are still seeing issues after the latest product install.

Well, running "MB-clean" went very smoothly; it did everything it was supposed to do. And,, it's all good now. I ran a Threat Scan... no problems. (I'm in the process of running a Full Scan (incl. Rootkits) on both drives now. If I find any problems, I'll reply to you in this thread.)

Thank you, Porthos.
