Hello..this is my first post so please bear with me if i have this question in the wrong area...i recently had a malware infection called digital Protection and was able to find a removal tool to get rid of it.. I beleive i was able to remove it but the second part of the removal process was to run malware bytes and remame the file before installing or running it...i was able to install it but when I attempted to perform a scan...Malware bytes would run for about 2 or 3 secs. then close. When i tried to rerun it I received the error that Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. I tried uninstalling and redoing it in safemode but no luck.. I googled this problem and was lead here to post a possible combo fix log but would really need some guidance on how to do this. I have seen other fake anti virus malware programs but this seems to be one of the nastier ones. Please reply at your convenience if you can assist me in getting this problem fixed. I really dont want to have to format but have had to do this on other ocasions with other fake antivirus infections
