    Yes they have. After about 6 months where I live you never would have know it happened. A ways north of us it took about a year or so. Thanks again.

    Phil, is it possible that you have more than one A/V product running on your computer? If so, then maybe the other product is somehow conflicting with MBAM when it runs.

    Also, when you are in Safe Mode, keep in mind that you have no internet connectivity, so MBAM won't be able to get updates while in Safe Mode. If you are in Safe Mode with Networking, it can get updates, because you do have internet connectivity.

    No Sir I ran it in Safe Mode with Networking and am only running MBAM and Emsisoft. Sudo solved the problem.

    With the greatest respect - If anyone really believes they are compelled to run any version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in Windows Safe Mode, this is absolutely endemic of much more serious infection, and points to the need for preceding purpose built anti-malware utilities. e.g. RougueKiller, RKill, TDSSKiller, FRST, high-quality anti-virus application, etc.

    As it was before, is now, and shall be for a long time, the key is always an effective defense arsenal and back-up strategy.

    How could any A-V or A-M application clean-up after the worst versions of Virut or Sality infect your system?

    Running any program in Safe Mode with Networking as a diagnostic isn't necessarily indicative of more serious problems, but is a means to isolate any 3rd party program conflict - especially when an AV program is the cause and is the safest way to determine if it is the AV without disabling it.

    I suppose this may simply be a result of MBAM not have been added to EAM whitelist or have you done that already, Phil?

    If you have some time, try following the interaction between a computer user, with a Windows malware infection, and an experienced Malware Removal Helper that's taken on their trouble. The first forum that comes to mind is Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs at BleepingComputers.com. The lessons to be learned there are simply no less than staggering in depth and breadth.

    After following just some of these successfully concluded cases, you will see the methodical purposes of the Malware Removal Helper. Very frequently, the helper first requests logs and passive diagnostic reports (DDS, FRST, etc.) where careful analysis helps point the way towards resolution actions.
