I have been working with Avast support because, even though I am "protected", MBAM is finding a Trojan every day more than once, and I am trying to find a solution.  I run Farbar before on another laptop, but when I tried to download it from this web site today, I got the following message:

C:|Windows|ERUNT.exe is not a valid Win 32 application

 

I was finally able to download it, but haven't been able to open it...I just have the spinning circle on my desktop after I double click, and it stays there, disabling me from opening anything else...When I open Task Manager FRST is listed 6 times in Processes, but I am not allowed to end the process.  Nothing other than my browser is working right since I downloaded the FRST file.  Any suggestions??  I restarted the computer in order to get the above message to open. Help!!

This issue has already been reported to the developer.

You should contact and advise your helper at avast. There are other alternatives they can suggest until this is resolved.

A new version of FRST has just been released which should rectify the problem you and others have reported.
