I'm going to move your topic to the Malware Removal forum so that we can work on this and you'll be able to download scripts.

Please note, you have System Restore disabled. Please enable System Restore and create a new Restore Point

ATTENTION: System Restore is disabled (Total:151.62 GB) (Free:77.29 GB) (51%)


You appear to have a bad block on one of your hard disk. You may need to use DISKPART or other tool to verify which disk before you potentially lose data.

System errors:
Error: (01/20/2023 08:10:22 PM) (Source: disk) (EventID: 11) (User: )
Description: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk4\DR4.


It look like there are some possible network issues also being logged which could be related to your issue getting Malwarebytes to load properly


Please get the new Restore Point created, then check on that hard drive and let me know what you find.

I can have you run a script that should tell us which disk

Please save the attached file to the C:\Users\donal\Downloads\  folder.

Then run the following Farbar program with Admin rights.  C:\Users\donal\Downloads\FRSTEnglish.exe

Then click on the FIX button.

When it's done, please find and post back the FIXLOG.TXT file.

This is Disk 4 which should be the one that Windows is logging as an issue. I don't know what you have running on it, but I'd back up any data on it before you do further testing, disk repair work.

I have and use MR as well, but it's still not quite like a System Restore. It's up to you but I use both as SR works for the System Changes. MR works to replace all change so stuff you have right now would be lost on a full restore

Let me review and get back to you. But if you're not that interested in cleaning up and just want MB to work again, let me know so I don't waste time writing up a clean up script.
