I can't run Malawarebytes anti malware after running FixExe. Can anyone help me understand this mess? :-) I'm trying to get rid of XP Internet Security.

Thx! Gunnarz

Does malwarebytes even attempt to start or does it ask you to "open with"?

Ahhh. I got it figured out. :thumbsup:

No. It would attempt to run and then just abort without any indication other than the change in the mouse pointer. I had tried safe mode etc. I couldn't update the copy of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware that I had already to 1.45 so I blew it away, downloaded the update and then renamed it in the program folder to mbam.com instead of mbam.exe. It ran like a bored out Camaro; found 10 various items which I canned and then I went back and renamed it to mbam.exe.

Thanks much for your reply. I think I'm 'clean'. :flowers:
