Hi kireland6 and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer!

Have you installed Malwarebytes Antimalware already?

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.
  • Right-click on mbam.exe, rename it to winlogon.exe.
  • Double-click on winlogon.exe to launch the program.
  • If that did not work, then try renaming and change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.
  • Double-click on winlogon.scr (or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.
If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.

regards, Elise

Hi kireland6, sadly I have to tell you that PC spyware 2010 is a so-called rogue program, a program that pretends to scan your computer and pretends to find a lot of threads in order to convince you to buy the program. If you entered creditcard information to purchase the program, I recommend you to call your bank and change your personal information (they will know what to do).

The file you need to rename might be simply named mbam

Right click on this file and select Rename

Now type winlogon.exe and press enter.

Now click Start > Run, and in the box that opens click Browse and browse to the malwarebytes folder in Program files and click there on the winlogon.exe file. Click Open and after that OK.

In MBAM, go to the Update tab, and check for updates.
Now go to the Scan tab and do a full scan. MBAM may want to reboot your computer in order to complete removal. Allow this. After completing, you can find the scan results at the Log tab.

Please post the results here. If it still doesnt run, try to do in in safe mode.

regards, Elise
