Error Code 707, tried reinstall, tried rename, tried reboot, still no go

Recommended Posts

I am going crazy trying to install Malwarebytes. First, I was getting the error that said Windows could not find the file and/or that I would try to open it and nothing happened. So, I tried downloading the version that creates a randomly-generated "fake name" for the file. But when I try to run set-up from this, I get "Error Code 707 (3, 0)". I see from the FAQ on this forum that the solution for this error is to reinstall -- but I don't even get as far as installing in the first place. This error comes up immediately when I start set-up, no matter what the set-up .exe is named.

Each time, I uninstall MB and delete the set-up files, and empty the recycle bin, and reboot, trying to start "fresh", but I get the same problem, over and over.

I successfully installed MB on my computer about a month ago, but I seem to now have some kind of virus that interferes with me installing MB, so I can't figure out how to get rid of the virus, because I can't install MB!
