cant run Mbam

Recommended Posts

Hello, :)

I was using Mcafee because it came free with my internet provider, but the XP security virus sneaked right by it and set up shop on my system. I was able to kill it for the most part by downloading Pctools and a fix i found someplace. but I really want to run Malwarebytes and it just wont run. At first it said it was missing Msvbvm60.dll so i reinstalled that and now Im getting a runtime error '0' and a 440 autorun error. I tried changing the name as suggested on this site but that made no diffrence at all. I have since deleted Pc tools and installed AVG ,I did a full scan and it came up completly clean. I have also run Ccleaner and cleaned up and Misc. files with that. but for some reason I cant run Malwarebytes. I have read several of the help threads on this forum and didnt find one that helped. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks. I printed out the welcome thread but didnt download or run any of the programs since i cant run mbam.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstall and used malware clean tool. and reinstalled mbam still no luck( well in installs it just wont run)

Im running windows XP . my computer seems to be running fine a bit slower maybe. I feel confident that I removed the Xp Security threat but perhaps there is something more going on.

thanks for your help
