Malwarebytes install time/Check for updates error
Posted 28 July 2010 - 01:26 AM
Yes, try that
I just downloaded Malwarebytes and tried to install it. At the end, when I clicked Install, I got the same message that is in my original post. I get the message again when I "Check for updates". I did not do a "Remove Program" on the existing Malwarebytes that I already had. So who knows what it's thinking when trying to install a second version. Should I "Remove" Malwarebytes and try to reinstall?

My problems have all returned. As I wrote in a previous post:'
I can’t run ANYTHING now. I tried to run TFC and got the message
Application cannot be executed. The file tfc.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?
I get the same message for anything I try to run. The exe file name changes with the application.
I have lost internet access.
I am getting the bogus "your pc is infected - do you wish to activate your antivirus software" message.
I was on the internet this evening when it happened. I was experimenting with the google/yahoo virus I have, which I wanted to tell you about, which is why I posted the Malwarebytes issue in the first place. I was trying to run Malwarebytes to fix the google virus. This is the virus where google presents its findings, you click your selection, and it takes you somewhere else. I also have a redirect virus which, when you go to some sites, will stay there for a second, then go blank. A message at the bottom reads "waiting for www.google-analytics.com". Since I started working with you, I have been going to only very legit sites like a real estate company, a concert theater, a national recording artist, etc. Maybe the redirect virus took me to a site that gave me the virus again. I did not click on anything on the page it brought up.

- 1 - Flash Drive Disinfector
Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs from here and save it to your desktop.
- Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
- The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
- Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
- Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you run it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.
Please read carefully and follow these steps.
- Download TDSSKiller and save it to your flash drive.
- Plug the flash drive into the infected PC and copy TDSSKiller to your desktop
- Extract its contents to your desktop.
- Once extracted, open the TDSSKiller folder and doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
- If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
- If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
- It may ask you to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now.
- If no reboot is require, click on Report. A log file should appear. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
- If a reboot is required, the report can also be found in your root directory, (usually C:\ folder) in the form of "TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt". Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
