Ok, here's my problem. My computer is infected with the Antivirus 2010 program. I can download and install Malware Bytes software and even get it to run. But after I click on the "Start Scan" button, the scan starts but never gets past 8 seconds and completely shuts down. I have also downloaded the program on another computer using a jump drive, saved the .exe file with different names, and then loaded it on my infected computer....even after all of this, it still shuts down Malwarebytes immediately after the scan begins. I have even tried to run it from another user that is listed on my computer but the virus keeps shutting down the program right after it starts. Have also tried Rkill before running MB, but still no go.

I've been to several websites and tried different things...... and when ever my computer gets infected, renaming the Malwarebytes file a different name usually helps. But this time it is NOT WORKING !!!!!!!

@ enewton,


Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
