Hello @CCTech and :welcome:

The logs are indicating that some of our files cannot be verified. Not sure if that's due to a possible disk error, or maybe Norton is blocking our files.

Temporarily disable Norton and reinstall Malwarebytes over the top of your current installation to ensure the files are correct.



Please try adding exclusions to your Norton Antivirus

Reboot and see if that helps. If not, then try running a full disk check on your system drive. From an elevated Admin command prompt.



If still no change please try disabling the Self Protection module and reboot. Then let me know if that corrects the issue.

We will also need a memory dump if the above doesn't help. If possible, can you see if there's a full memory dump available at C:\Windows\memory.dmp? If so, please zip up this file and use wetransfer.com to generate a download link. If not, then please zip up the minidump at  C:\Windows\Minidump\092418-26223-01.dmp and attach it in your reply

I apologize for that @CCTech

Didn't realize that Devin was going to be out of office. I've asked another support engineer to take a look at your files. He's off work right now but hopefully can drop in tomorrow and take a look.

@nikhils can you please take a look at the dump file here

Here is the new link. https://we.tl/t-nvDGlUhVqG

I didn't mention it before but one of the first things I did was to run chkdsk and windows made minor changes, there was no corruption.

Malwarebytes had been working fine a few months ago and had not been updated until September. (this is a client's computer btw). Also Norton security had been renewed but for some reason it was not automatically updated on the PC until I logged into the Norton account and verified the renewal, so the PC was virtually unprotected for ~5 months. Norton Security wouldn't update so I had to remove and reinstall to make it work.  I don't recall if I reinstalled Norton first or the update for Malwarebytes.  Thanks for your assistance.

It's definitely an interaction between Norton Security and MalwareBytes.  I re-enabled "Scan for Rootkits" and added the exclusions for Malwarebytes to Norton from here: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1123. NOTE: not all files were present in the drivers folder, (mbamchameleon.sys and farflt.sys). Then Disabled Norton Smart Firewall and Auto-Protect and updated to version mb3-setup-consumer-  Rebooted and ran a scan with MalwareBytes while leaving Norton disabled. It completed successfully.  I re-enabled Norton and ran another scan and it BSOD'd.

Hello @CCTech

I have not been able to get to reproducing this yet.

I did see that you have added Malwarebytes Exclusions to Norton. Can you also go ahead and exclude Norton folders and drivers from  Malwarebytes.

Exclude the following folders:

C:\Program Files\Norton Security


Also Can you go to services.msc and set the Malwarebytes service to "Automatic Delayed Start" and reboot your machine.

Let me know what you see.

I added the exclusions for Norton as you recommended and set Malwarebytes service for a delayed start and rebooted.

I enabled "Scan for Rootkits" and started a scan and it completed successfully so it looks like the problem is resolved.

What doesn't make sense is I have Norton and Malwarebytes installed on several other computers with no exclusions for each other and have had no problems.

Why this one???

Thanks for your help.  That's another one for the books.
