Malwarebytes won't install because of 'Internet Security 2010?


Recommended Posts

Ended up with this ridiculous 'Internet Security 2010' a couple of days ago. I've read that Malwarebytes will kill this thing, but it won't let Malwarebytes install. I've been reading all the info I can find, and have cleared out all that I can find, both files and registery entries. I don't know what's left, I've even killed some files that were involved by using FileAsassin. Popups are gone, can use Taskmanager, but if I try to install Malwarebytes it goes through the whole setup, then gives a message at the end: "Unable to execute file: C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anit-Malware\mbam.exe"

And that's it, program won't start up!

Does anyone know what file or registry entry does this with the IS2010 Malware? Is there a way to get Malwarebytes past this so it will install?

And if so, does anyone know for sure if Malwarebytes will fix the IS2010 garbage?

Any help would be appreciated!!!!

I've even tried 'Process Explorer', and don't see anything suspicious....
