MBAM Won't Start (Tried Code2 Error)


Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've been using this program for a month or so now. I've updated to the latest version and everything.

This morning when I tried to start my Mozilla Firefox, it wouldn't open. It crashed upon startup.

I tried uninstall/reinstall, Blackbird Web Browser wouldn't install & Google Chrome would not install.

I ended up installing Opera Web Browser (which is actually quite nice).

After doing some researcher I figured I probably had Malware that was killing my startup files. So I ran MBAM, but 3 seconds into the scan, it crashes. When I try to reopen, it says "path not found" and that whole deal.

So I looked up the forum and found a possible solution in this thread> http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=29028

I tried running it 3 different times. It worked for 3 seconds into the scan and crashed.

I renamed it explorer.exe after that and it ran for 7 seconds and crashed.

I tried it several times but it's not working.

Whatever is attacking doesn't have any kind of signature. There's no fake computer scanner pop-up or anything like it. It just seems to want to keep me off the Internet.

Hopefully there is a solution to this, because I prefer my computer be free of this kind of crap. I do work and school from my laptop... not to mention I have almost 60 GB of music on this thing.

Oh yeah and every few minutes startup toolbar says has been blocked or something like that. That's the exact IP, but I don't remember what it says about it.
