Malwarebytes stuck on rootkit scanning and support tool stuck on updating


Recommended Posts

I would give the support tool another 10 minutes. If it is still stuck restart the computer and do the following.

  • Run the MBST Support Tool
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced
  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine
  • A zip file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your desktop, please upload that file on your next reply

 

Thanks

That looks good. Rootkit scanning has become unneeded except in extrema cases.

I think it choked because you had controlled folder access on. Is not on by default in Windows.

I see you are on the trial, are you planning to go premium?

Before we go on I should explain why I'm attempting to run the rootkit scan. 2 days ago my PC started behaving weirdly whereby I initially lost complete control of my character in a game and every single app just began closing on its own. Now whenever I log into my main windows user account, everything that I open closes immediately after. All is well on the other user profile I created but I'm convinced theres Malware on my system

Remarks@Ray542 

This last scan with Malwarebytes for Windows found zero malware.

Q:  When was the last time you scanned with MS Defender ?

 

The described behaviors do not have to mean that there is a infection. It could just be that a user profile got glitched up.

Run scan w M S. Defender to get a checkup.

@Rey542

I m moving this Topic to the malware removal help section.

I will guide you one to one.

There seems to be two questionable sys drivers in TEMP folder + a few stray leftovers of File Explorer context she'll handlers. Those could be contributing to complications here.

Hi Rey542.

My name is Maurice.  I will be guiding you.

First thing, as Porthos mentioned, be real sure that Windows option for Controlled Folder Access is OFF

Confirm for me whether you are getting help elsewhere .

other remarks - questions

Please refrain from playing any online games, or any web surfing.

Are you aware that elements of Zenana are running ?

That it has scheduled tasks ?

Is Zemana paid for ?

Or is it a leftover from the past ?

We need to reduce any old ancient in needed tasks or auto started apps.

Please answer my questions.  I am formulating a custom cleanup task.

Meantime also run this.

 The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free Microsoft stand-alone virus scanner that can be used to scan for & remove malware or potentially unwanted software from a system. 

The download links & the how-to-run-the tool are at this link at Microsoft 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/intelligence/safety-scanner-download

Please select "FULL scan" from Scan options.

Let me know the result of this.

The log is named MSERT.log  

the log will be at  

C:\Windows\debug\msert.log

Please attach that log with your reply.
