mbam.exe doesn't work closes after 2 seconds

Post by Terri Callahan on Tue Aug 18, 2009 5:29 pm

I installed the malwarebyes_anti-malware on my C:\drive, nothing works (all executibles are corrupted)...I tried to run the same "mbam.exe" file from a thumb drive, and it looks like it's executing to quick scan the C; drive, and it disappears after 2 seconds....why ??

Please download the current version of HijackThis from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  • Double click and run the installer.
  • It will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\hijackthis.exe
  • After installing, you should get the user agreement, press accept and Hijack This will run.
  • Select Do a system scan and save a log file. This will open a notepad file of everything Hijack This found, copy and paste it back here.

trying to run HIJACK

Post by Terri Callahan on Tue Aug 18, 2009 8:24 pm

so now i've attempted to install HIJACK, I've loaded it to my C: drive and tried to run it, with no success, and then I tried to run it from my thumb drive......neither appear to work. I have had my Task Manager open for applications, and it just says "RUNNING" on the C: drive Task, but that's it..no sign of HIJACK setting up.

how long does it ususally take?

Something is blocking it.
Hello.

  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    2. During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    3. It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    4. Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    5. Close any open browsers.
    6. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • We need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
