I dont quite know whats wrong or how it happened, but here is a brief summary of my problem. My system automatically updates and one day I came home and on my desktop screen half of my icons just appeared as file icons, not actually what they are supposed to be. So I clicked on a program to open and a window opened asking me to chose a program to open the program Im trying to open. Next thing is Ive been trying to download malware programs to hopefully fix the problem and it will let me download the program, but when I click to open it says, for example, C:\Users\(my name)\Downloads\mbam-setup(2).exe Application not found. If anyone can help that would be amazing, I am new to the forums and Im sure someone has had this problem before. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to BC
Try this before running mbam
Also rename mbam.exe to mbam.com




Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • 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.
You will need to run the application again if rebooting the computer occurs along the way as the malware programs will start again.
