I recently did a clean install of win7(64)Ult. recently and tried installing MwB only to get and error on install, i tried reinstalling it on a separate computer successfully but not this current one. 

I believe it came about when i had someone install a "game booster" before i finished updating drivers. I deleted the program but i think the damage was done.

Avast! Pro and Spybot S/D say im fine but the error with malware-bytes has me a little worried.


im currently in Safemode with Networking and have run the support tool with the mbst grab below

It appears that your User Account Control (UAC) settings have been modified:

UAC Settings
EnableLUA:                      On
Consent Prompt Behavior Admin:  Off

Given that Malwarebytes, like the vast majority of modern Windows applications, is fully UAC compatible and compliant, using non-default UAC settings might cause permissions issues with the program and its functions.  I would first suggest restoring UAC to its default settings and then trying a repair using the Malwarebytes Support Tool to see if that resolves the issues.  Instructions on resetting UAC can be found on this page and instructions for performing the repair install can be found below:

  1. Run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Start Repair
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions and reboot your system if prompted to do so

If the issue still persists then please try disabling Avast temporarily as it may be interfering with the installation.  If that resolves the problems then please try creating exclusions in Avast's real-time protection for the items listed in this support article.

Please let us know how it goes and if the issue is resolved or not.

Thank you Exile, the issue was resolved,

i disabled Avast! and was able to install and run MwB and Adwcleaner. The result was 12 PuP's. I reverted back to WindowsFirewall as a default and  reverted UAC from always notify back to default as well.


the screen flicker is gone along with the delayed typing . I'm defiantly going to switch to MwB Premium in January when my avast runs out

I placed this same question on the avast forums and got no response or solution after 3 days so im thankful for the speedy reply

Excellent, I'm glad that you were able to resolve the issue and that I was able to help.

Since there were threats on the system I would also recommend making certain the system is clean just to make sure nothing slipped by the scans.  To do so, please read and follow the instructions in this topic and then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and one of our malware removal specialists will assist you in checking the system for any remaining threats and removing them if any are present.

If there is anything else we might assist you with please don't hesitate to let us know.
