I ran a Malewarebytes full scan today and after downloading an update it just stopped after 5-10 seconds in midscan. Trying again revelead the error message "Windows can not access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the file." A restart will alow me to open Mbam again but it just repeats the same process over again. I have tried uninstalling Mbam and reinstalling without success.
I appeared to have been infected by a fake system restore virus or something similar, which is why I ran the scan in the first place. I normally have no problem getting rid of these. I just run Rkill, then MBam, then a hosts-permission.bat file. Eventhough Mbam did not succesfully scan or delete anything, the virus appears to be gone or in hibernation. Aside from Mbam not working there is just some slight slowdown , but nothing else going on.
Anyone know what's going on? Thanks...
