W10 B19044.2364: MBAM MBSetup-0CE0F8E3 not installing, error unknown

Recommended Posts


Tried to install MBSetup-0CE0F8E3.
12%, instal stopped, hung for about a minute, then returned error, reboot needed.
No error code given.

Tried in Win Safe Mode, same result.

No AV (Save for Win Defender) active.
Checked Taskman:
No odd apps running, BG Processes, no weirdness in Details nor performance.
Tried to get a Win Reliability log:
No weirdness there, save for the app ending without further details.
Ditto in Event Log.

Anyone a clue, please?

Thank you:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance

    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.

Please advice?

  Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply as well.

Thank you

Missed your earlier reply due to the automated response.
Apologies, good sir.

Thank you for responding,  this fast no less.
Are you a robot, sir?   ;)

Already had (and is updated) Farbar, will get onto it.
Also, BMSupport Tool got dumped by Defender, some warning of "malicious tool".
Killed Defender off, ran it again, now it seems to work.
Confirmed, zip was made and put on Desktop.

Lovely, if an AV does not even recognise the most base programs.   :S

Well, opening the Log already told me all.
MBAM installed:
Yes, Active: No.
Can't, install failed, and I used Revo to see if anything was left:

But then:

AntiVirus Information
Anti-Virus Product :     Windows Defender
    Up To Date:    Yes    Enabled:    Off

AntiSpyware Information
Anti-Spyware Product :     Windows Defender
    Up To Date:    Yes    Enabled:    Off

UAC Settings
EnableLUA:                      On
Consent Prompt Behavior Admin:  off

Interesting, since, according to what I see in TM, these ARE active.
So, I has a issue, I areth teh think.
I do not think it's a virus, rather incompatibility issues with the previous Win builds and drivers ETC.

Time for a clean install, I guess.
Well, this Win is 5 years old, so, I guess, I am a tad overdue ... .   :S

Thank you so much, sir.

Win Def is off, but it "catched" MB install?
How ken that be?

If you can attach either the zip from the MB tool or the farbar we can figure it out.

Well, no need, got the culprit, myself.
A file callde HideMe.DLL and a folder, also hidden, as system folder.
Figured that out in Supervisor Account, after deeper delving into the register.

Now I have MBAM.
Well, that is ... for unknown reason, it tells me "Premium Trial Expired."
Odd, as I have not used it afore.

Now, I do not need Premium, might get it if I am pleased with the proggy, but for now, I just want a base scan for adware.
Having annoying pop ups out of the blue, after been on a Windows Tools site, looking for a Win 11 compatible Win 7 toolbar.
The site did not look shady to me, bunch of freeware, links to official sites, you know the type I think.
Most annoying, it's a bunch or porn pop-ups, trying to close it by pressing the X on my Firefox just loads new pop-ups.
I have to close that window in TM.   :S

Seeing I have kids, and a wife that's mad jealous ... which has this HUUUGE frying pan ... I could need a wee assist here.    ;)

Any a clue what this could be please?

Thank you.

No edit function?  O_O

Ah well.

Got MBAM installed.
Took me a while, figured it out.
The installer did not find an earlier regkey for the trial, rather, an issue in my register prevented this key to be written.

Had to use PSExec as Admin to fire up Regedit through a command-line, and erase the "Unspecified" Owner.
Nae clue what an Unspecified Owner is, asked an IT'er at MIT.

Probably should go for full reinstall, but it takes so long to get ALL settings as it was.
Having severe Asperger's I HATE change ...    :(
