I have this same issue.

It started with Malwarebytes not being able to execute.

Then, I followed the recommendations and renamed the executable, and I had to do this in safemode,

and it finallly worked.

However, everytime I run Malwarebytes, I get this same issue

Hi nez101 and Welcome to Malwarebytes! Hi Jimmya57 and Welcome! Jimmya57 please start a New Topic.

OK,,,, nez101,

Download RootRepeal:


  • Extract the archive to a folder you create such as C:\RootRepeal
  • Double-click RootRepeal.exe to launch the program (Vista users should right-click and select "Run as Administrator).
  • Click the "File" tab (located at the bottom of the RootRepeal screen)
  • Click the "Scan" button
  • In the popup dialog, check the drives to be scanned - making sure to check your primary operating system drive - normally C:
  • Click OK and the file scan will begin
  • When the scan is done, there will be files listed, but most if not all of them will be legitimate
  • Click the "Save Report" Button
  • Save the log file to your Documents folder
  • Post the content of the RootRepeal file scan log in your next reply.
