Hello and Welcome

Lets get a clean re-install of the latest version so that we are working with all default settings.

Let's try this first.... (Malwarebytes clean removal tool will backup your license information and then re-enter the license to the new install)

  1. Please follow the steps in this pinned topic to un-install your current version of MBAM and reinstall the latest build - Malwarebytes mb-clean tool (NOTE: After un-installing with the mb-clean tool you will be asked to reboot. Once you reboot it will ask you if you want to re-install Malwarebytes, you can select YES (it will download the latest version) If you are not prompted to install the latest version, you can download the latest version manually (currently v3.4.5.2467 CU 1.0.342) to re-install from HERE)
  2. If that does not correct the issue, then please read the following and attach to your next reply the requested logs - Diagnostic Logs (after you run all the tools requested, all the logs will be combined into one log file named: mb-check-results.zip located on your Desktop (which will include the FRST logs inside the zip file))
  3. NOTE: More info about the latest Malwarebytes 3.4.5 HERE; MB 3 User Guide ONLINE; MB 3 User Guide PDF; MB 3 FAQ: Malwarebytes 3.0 - Frequently Asked Questions

Please let us know how it goes.

Thank You,

I have experienced this myself in the past.  What happens is, for some unknown reason Internet Explorer will suddenly start attempting to load VBScript.dll, something it isn't supposed to do since VBScript is considered obsolete and dangerous even by Microsoft.  And since Malwarebytes 3 is by default configured to stop IE from loading/executing VBScript, when it sees it attempt to load that DLL, it stops it and you get the detection you're seeing.

When it happened to me I just lived with it for a time and it eventually went away.  I've seen other cases here on the forums that were similar, where the issue cropped up for a while and then eventually stopped.  The exact cause is still as of yet unknown as far as I've been able to determine, however if it does persist there are probably more extreme measures one could take such as unregistering VBScript.dll so that IE can't load it, but I'll leave it to the others to determine what's best and what actions to take to try to find the cause and fix it.
