Malwarebytes scanning question

Recommended Posts

My computer has "Cyber Security" that I'm desperately trying to get rid of.

I was able to download/install Malware Bytes onto my computer. It sits on my desktop but I cannot open it to scan for viruses. It stays open for two-three seconds and disappears. It also says that Malware is already running whenever I try to open it.

How do I get it to run/scan? Is Malware Bytes being blocked and if so how can I unblock it?

Post the log from ComboFix in your next reply.

Please make sure you disable ALL of your Antivirus/Antispyware/Firewall before running ComboFix..This because Security Software may see some components ComboFix uses (prep.com for example) as suspicious and blocks the tool, or even deletes it. Please visit HERE if you don't know how.
