Welcome to BC !
FROM THE WEB: MRT.exe is the process of Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool, a program that checks the computer for harmful processes in the background. Normally it runs on the second Tuesday of every month, which is Microsoft’s traditional Patch Tuesday, when most of its programs and operating systems get their automatic updates, containing the most important security patches as well. Thus, MRT.exe gets updated once in a month, and runs once straight after the update, then remains dormant for another month.
To find out whether you need to worry about MRT.exe or not, you need to check if it is in the C:Windows\system32 folder or not, and if you see it running on the second Tuesday of the month. If the answer is yes for both questions, then probably you have nothing to worry about. If the answer is no to any of them, you should check your system and remove the process if necessary.
AVG says it is in system32.
Malwarebytes not opening could be a result of a Windows update yesterday, it's files are corrupted or something malicious on the computer.
RKill is a program that was developed at BleepingComputer.com that attempts to terminate known malware processes so that your normal security software can then run and clean your computer of infections. When RKill runs it will kill malware processes and then removes incorrect executable associations and fixes policies that stop us from using certain tools. When finished it will display a log file that shows the processes that were terminated while the program was running.
Run a scan using RKill Download Link Download Now iExplore.exe
DO NOT reboot the computer after running the scan. Immediately attempt to run MBAM.
Some security programs may pop up a warning. Ignore the warning about Rkill or iExplore and run the scan.
