Cleaning a clients PC for them and have something here that MBAM will not clean. In fact, it finds 4 items and stops responding while cleaning those 4 items. It gives me the infamous send/don't send error report. When I click one of the buttons, I then get a Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger has stopped responding window, again with the send/don't send buttons. SAS in safe mode does not find these 4 items. Combofix was ran and that cleared 7 or 8 items that MBAM was finding and hanging up on. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling MBAM to no avail. I'm kind of suspecting that the "stopped responding" window is a fake alert (since one of the four items found is a trojan.fakealert), but if I don't click on anything, nothing ever happens.

Here's the MBAM log saved before attempting the removal process:

  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

Client needed their PC back so we pulled all their important data and did a reformat with a clean install. Thanks anyway, Cleveland.
