MBAM crashes while scanning


Recommended Posts

While scanning the local system drive (C:) mbam.exe crashes (ocurred on 2 separate scans). Other local partitions and external drives scan without incident. It seems to crash while scanning the following directory:

C:\ProgramData\Norton\{...}\Norton\Qbackup\{...} (let me know if more specifics are needed).

I obtained the following log file info:

Welcome lesliam -

It seems like your Norton is picking up Mawarebytes as an 'unwanted' program -

If you have the extra Add on Service Pac installed (with Norton) please disable it (from Norton Forum) and install these exclusions in Norton -

Please exclude the following files from your antivirus:

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude them from it as well

For Windows XP:

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For Windows Vista or Windows 7

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\zlib.dll
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll
  • C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\SysWoW64\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude MBAM.EXE from it as well

Note: Once that's done, please make sure that if either of those programs has any sort of web filter, that you add the following as a trusted site:

data-cdn.mbamupdates.com

The FAQ contains examples of setting file exclusions for some known AV products

Please post back and let us know how it went - Thank You - :P

EDIT - Please let me know of your update version - Current is Version 4190 -

Hi keypees2005 -

Your Norton picks up other programs at times (good and bad) then it makes a "blind" decision as to whether to allow or reject the process -

As another defense tool Norton , at times will not allow these programs to run - That is why you add exceptions to the program -

Defense programs all have similar processes (SUPERAntiSpyware Pro for example) that need exclusions added -

I hope this helps you at least in a small way -

Thank You -

EDIT -

We chat to Norton forum people for their advice also - (along with many other A/V companies and forums)

Hi,

The problem still persists. The first time after adding to exclusions (both for real-time and scan exclusions), the scan went fine and completed. Now, the second time it was unsuccessful. It's still the same old problem, crashes while scanning the norton file. Please suggest a remedy for this.
