Virus is Blocking Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Change the name of the installation file to explorer.exe and then try running it on the infected machine. Once that is done, you will need to change the name of C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe to C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\explorer.exe to have the Malwarebytes program run.

Changing the name of the installation file didn't work for me. What finally did work was I downloaded rkill from another PC onto a flashdrive and ran it on the infected PC in safemode. rkill stopped the offending processes and I was able to then run Malwarebytes which located and removed the virus.

Thanks for your help.
