Malware disabled Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?

Recommended Posts


First I had the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...system-defender virus, which those instructions involving Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware helped me get rid of, but now I have the http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...-antivirus-plus virus, and this time Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is also disabled, apparently by the virus deleting the needed wbam.exe file from the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware install directory. I even tried uninstalling Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and reinstalling, but it never again creates the wbam.exe file, even after I reinstall in a different directory, such as Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware2 or 3. Even the Setup tells me:

"Unable to execute file:

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware2\mbam.exe

CreateProcess failed; code 2.

The system cannot find the file specified.

The instructions for getting rid of this "Antivirus Plus" malware involve the use of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, so what should I do?
