Can't launch MWB, or any other virus protection...

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have been using MBW for some time now with great success, then...


I can't launch any anti-virus software, or browse to any anti-virus sites, or search for anything that has an anti-virus name in the string. When I try to browse, the browser window closes.

I have created and run rescue discs for BitDefender and Kapersky, each have run, BitDefender found nothing, Kapersky finds something, deletes it. When I relaunch, same set of problems occur.

I have access to other uninfected computers to download software and install if required, but, I didn't want to start that until someone directed me to do so. I'm not an expert so I need to pay attention and go slow.

Thanks so much in advance.

Hello Scott, and welcome to the forums here at Malwarebytes.org B)

You've come to the right place!

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

We don't work on Malware removal in the general forums.

Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

Please note that it may take 72 hours or more for you to receive a response in the malware removal forum, as it is often busy at times. Please do not reply to your own post asking for help unless its been more than 72 hours since you originally posted, as this can make it appear as though you are being helped and take longer for you to get help.

If you are unable to do all or any of the steps in the link to the directions above, just post your problem into the forum I gave you a link to anyway and someone will be able to assist you.

Also, when replying, please use the "ADD REPLY" button or erase what the person you are replying to said, as this makes the forum easier to read.
