Repeatedly kept getting a popup window saying vmxclient.exe won't run and error code 0xc0000008.
Tried to run a scan with my McAfee, won't open.
Tried to run a scan with Windows Defender. Opens, but hangs up on 0 files scanned.
vmxclient.exe and srcvmx.exe show they are running in task manager. vmxclient I can end task, but it reopens a second later. srcvmx I can't get to end.
Tried to delete vmxclient.exe, says I don't have rights to do that even though I'm the administrator. (Tried some ways around that I found on the internet to no avail)
Booted in safe mode, which kept vmxclient amd srcvmx from loading in task manager, but didn't solve any other problems
Tried to follow directions for removing vmxclient here:
But every piece of software I download I get a message that "requested resource is in use" when I click on it. Tried rkill too, same story.
Found this current thread:
This sounds very similar to my problem. However, I couldn't get the first step, installing MBAR, to work. I download and says it's installing when I click on it, but no window for it ever opens up. It shows it is running in Task Manager, but I can't see it.
