|You might need detailed specialist attention. In the meantime, MalwareBytes has inbuilt features to prevent a virus knowing that it is being run. Its program file name can be changed to any old thing and it also accepts three other file extensions other than exe. Therefore try this:|
Go to MalwareBytes program folder and find the file mbam.exe (which is the file that runs the program). Try fooling the virus by renaming it to any of these file names - try them all:
Just double click the file, wait a bit and see if it runs and updates. If it doesn't help then rename it back to mbam.exe so that your normal MalwareBytes desktop shortcut works again.
Just to say that while I was typing this long post, #3 came in - so we overlapped.
Both ideas are worth a shot. Actually "running" MalwareBytes from Safe Mode is another option.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
