Recommended Posts

Hello, Welcome to Malwarebytes.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

Please download the attached Fixlist.txt file to  the same folder where the Farbar tool is running from.
The location is listed in the 3rd line of the FRST.txt log you have submitted.

Run FRST and click Fix only once and wait.

The tool will create a log (Fixlog.txt) please post it to your reply.

Let me know what problem persists.

Thanks, everything seems to have settled down. I'm not very clued up on this stuff to be fair but I'm not convinced there was a genuine issue in the first instance.

I had an older version of Malwarebytes and from the first warning about the issue it repeated every 20 minutes almost to the exact second.

I downloaded the new version, followed the instructions elsewhere as well as yours and never had any warning since. It looks like there has been a bunch of powershell type issues recently so maybe it was related to me not having the latest version of malwarbytes, java and windows 10 - all of which I've now remidied!


Thanks again
