So after a lot of investigating, I realized this program single-handedly (it can be the only optional startup program selected and will still crash my computer, therefore doesn't need to be combined with other programs) freezes my computer. It took me a long time to figure this out, trying to disable many many different startup programs to narrow down the problem.
Why does Malwarebytes freeze my computer? I have Windows XP Home edition.
The only way I can get around with starting my computer with malwarebytes is to system restore, and then for one bootup my computer won't freeze with Malwarebytes. Then next restart it freezes again. When I first got the program I restarted my computer 2-3 times without a problem. Then upon running one scan it froze upon restart and has been that way ever since.
I am currently NOT infected with any malware (according to ESET Nod32 and Malwarebytes paid editions).
Anyone have a method to start my computer without it freezing because of malwarebytes? I have disabled it temporarily but I would like to be able to start my computer with it running.
Also, I have noticed that if I run a video file shortly before it freezes, it will keep playing with sound and perfect video until the end. I simply can't use my mouse or keyboard to do anything after a certain point. The computer keeps time normally.
So it isn't really "frozen", just locked from doing anything, like opening anything up or closing a program. But if I run some programs, they WILL stop loading. I can still move around my mouse cursor, but that's about it, nothing else responds.
