Infected and Malwarebytes (and HijackThis) will not run

Mike G

Recommended Posts


I am hoping someone can help me. My PC is infected with something that will not go away. Last night, I updated and ran Malwarebytes numerous times and the infection kept coming back upon every reboot. Late last night, I was prevented from even starting the PC in Safe Mode, and today, I cannot get Malwarebytes or HijackThis (or Spybot S&D, for that matter) to run for more than a couple of seconds. Both start to run and then shut down after about 3-5 seconds. I am "prevented" even renaming mbam.exe to mbam.com and I am extremely frustrated. Re-installing and updating Malwarebytes seems to work, but it will only run for a few seconds.

Can anyone help me?

Sincerely and eternally grateful,

-Mike G
