Hi I am trying to remove MWMBs and even after using the MWMBs Removal Tool and rebooting twice" its still in "Program Files" It keeps saying:
"Error Deleting File or Folder: Cannot Delete the Directory is Not Empty"

When I open the MWMBs folder it has one little file with no description in it if I try and drag it to the Recycle Bin it says: "cannot read from the source file or disk" anyone have any ideas please :) Dazza

Hello Dazza -
2 ideas.
First, run chkdsk /r as the problem may be your system -
Next, If the problem persists, please contact Malwarebytes Support desk << with this form for personal help -

They have just told me that they will look after you as soon as a helper is available -

Thank You -

[font="Lucida Sans Unicode"]Thanks Aussie Addict :unsure: I tried to Run chkdsk /r but it wont run this is the error report:

The Type of the file system is NTFS
Cannot lock current drive.
Chkdsk /r cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.

Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts.


I will wait for a response from the other guy's and come back and relate the result to you and close the issue (I Hope) :thumbsup:

Hi Dazza -
Chkdsk /r cannot run because the volume is in use by another process ............
""Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts.""

At this point where you finished, you should have pressed the " Y " key for Yes and then Rebooted -
Your system was just asking you if it was OK to run the scan -

Any way, this was just the first idea from the Help Desk, and to then pass on the link for you to follow -

Let us know the result - :)
