rootkit infection?

Recommended Posts

Well I've encounter a particular problem lately. It seems I have some sort of infection on my computer, that so far, allows me to download & install malwarebytes without an issue, however when I try to run a "quick scan", it cuts off malwarebyte's process after roughly 5seconds & locks me from accessing malwarebytes noting...


I found that [inherit.exe] would re-allow me to open malwarebytes, however the infection still kicks the program's processes after roughly 5seconds of scanning.

I figured it could have been a Rootkit infection, & attempted using an anti-rookit program called [GMER], but nothing shows after a quick scan (scan upon initiation). While attempting a standard scan, the program will suddenly close after a few seconds.

Any help would be appreciated in getting rid of this annoying malware thingy :huh:
