Hi folks,

I'm trying to update Malwarebytes, and it will start to update, and then a portion of the way done (varies from 7% complete to 74% complete), and then it starts over. It has done this numerous times, even in Safe Mode w/networking. Has anyone seen this issue before?

Thanks!
James

P.S. I need recommendations on good (FREE) programs that examine processes and find ones that are actually bad stuff in disguise. Please and thank you. :)

You might want to try downloading a new version of Malwarebytes, they had an issue the beginning of May with this but they updated the software to resolve the issue, try downloading the new build from: here

With the malicous processes, try Rkill. It will kill all bad process, please note that it does sometimes kill legit processes as well such as MBAM itself and various other programs. From this you will be able to see where the process was killed from and delete if you want to.

Yes I did use Rkill. That didn't find anything that it had an issue with. I just thought there was another program that specifically focuses on duplicate processes running.

Thanks for the tip on Malwarebytes. I'll try that!
