I have vista sp1.
Tonight I tried to play a dvd in the pc as the dvd wasn't working on my dvd player. I never tried using the dvd player on the pc before and since it wasn't coming up in windows media I thought it may need a setting and I saw a dvd setting and while I'm very careful not to mess with things, this looked innocent, it said no region for dvd selected, so I chose united states.
The dvd did not play and then I noticed a 2nd dvd in the pack which said it was a digitized one. No clue what that was, but it had the same movie title, so I put that in, and got a message saying something about I can't watch this..something with legalities or licensing. I noticed it said blue ray, and then I realized that was why it wouldn't work in my player or the pc.
I had to use task manager to stop windows media as both of those dvd's caused the program to go into 'not responding' mode.
Windows defender then alerted me that some program was added which will autostart. The message vanished so quick I don't know what it was, but I did check the start up programs later and didn't find anything that seemed it could be a problem.
I then ran ccleaner which had normal stuff.
Then I ran a full scan of Malwarebytes.
Hours earlier I had run a quick scan of Malwarebytes and it ran fine and still does.
I have Malwarebytes 1.44; updated to database 3573; fingerprints loaded 178202 which was current a few hours ago.
On the full scan it stops at about 4 minutes into it on a file in program data\uninstall\(a lot of numbers in here)\setup.exe
I let it sit there a long time, until it said not responding then stopped the program using task manager.
I then ran a full scan of superantispyware which is current and up to date and that came back with no infections.
I then ran NIS2009 which came back no problems. (never does, but what the heck)
I then ran the file through virus total which came back with no results next to the program names and will show the bottom portion of the result page below.
Then I ran malwarebytes full scan again, same problem.. freezes same place.
Then I ran windows defender which also froze in same folder but after the (number file portion) it was halted on a different sub folder.
I ran that through virus total as well, with no results or problems.
I ran malwarebytes one more time (I'm stubborn. lol) and still not getting past this file.
Here is the bottom (additional information) of the Virus Total scan result as I do not know if this information is important. This is only from the one malwarebytes stopped on.

I was going to reinstall malwarebytes but when windows defender also freezes in that folder realized is not malwarebytes.
Does anyone know what I can do to be able to get through a full scan and if this is a virus/trojan?
I do not know if is safe to remove that uninstall folder.
I have not restarted since this problem, as I am concerned what that might do.
I appreciate your reading this and your help.
