Here's what I've done so far after discovering Malwarebytes Version 1.39 (July 13) will not run and getting the following error message: Microsoft Visual C++ Library/Runtime Error! C:\ProgramFiles\Malwarebytes' Anti-malware/mbam.exe This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."
Uninstalled/reinstalled Malwarebytes using REVO several times. Restarted CP each time.
Prior to saving a downloaded file, I renamed Malwarebytes by changing the .exe extensions.. When that didn’t work, I opened the MB folder in Program Files and changed the .exe extenstions. No success.
Tried installing in Safe Mode w/networking: Didn’t work.
Tried installed in Safe Mode w/networking and changing extensions: Didn’t work
All attempts to download Malwarebytes: installation screen freezes
I was able to run SuperAntispyware software. Nothing found.
I created a New User account and was able to run Malwarebytes in regular mode. I was able to run the update, a quick scan, and full scan. Results: no problems found under the New User!
I noticed that Stopzilla was popping up here and there today. I renamed the Malwarebytes files “Stopzilla” but couldn’t fool it into installing Malwarebytes.
I ran CWShredder and nothing found. I ran HiJackThis and am unsure about a few entries. I found Stopzilla in HiJackThis and deleted. Went through computer and found no more traces of Stopzilla.
I used CCleaner after completing the above steps.
I downloaded Combofix and have a log.
Looking forward to a fix. Thanks so much!
