Malwarebytes is stuck and won't keep scanning!!

Recommended Posts

So I did one scan and malwarebytes found several infected files which I removed. When I went and tried a second scan, it goes fine for 15 minutes or so, then gets stuck here: hkey_users\s-1-5-18\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer

and won't continue the scan. It says it's still scanning but has been stuck on this file for 15 minutes. I tried re-running the scan several times.

How can I fix this?

THANKS!!!! :)
