Malwarebytes keeps closing on me. Can't open some programs help!

Q: Malwarebytes keeps closing on me. Can't open some programs help!

So I can't open malwarebytes and it won't let me open some programs. I tried renaming mbam.exe, also tried opening it in safe mode, both not working. Also in IE and Firefox (not in Opera) google links will get redirected. It's really irritating me so help me please!!

Preferred Solution: Malwarebytes keeps closing on me. Can't open some programs help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

After running Rkill and scanning with Malwarbytes (found and removed 5 issues), MS Office programs will not open from desktop icons. Kaspersky also will not open but, when clicked, a box appears asking with which program it should opened. On some other machines I have been able to System Restore, but this machine will not restore. Have also used http://www.dougknox..../file_assoc.htm to get programs to work but it did not work here. Dell Latitude D531 is the computer in question.

Can you go rightlick on the harddrive in my computer->properties->tools->disk check? (not sure if its the exact name, I dont run english windows, the procedure is called CHKDSK scan)
This can check if its a hardware issue instead of a software one caused by viruses.
 
Try downloading RKill from bleeping computers page and running it. If it kills something, try going with normal antiviruses.

A:Action center won't open, Internel Explorer only browser that will open, no MalwareBytes and RKill will not open

An update.

I've tried running MalwareBytes and RKill from a flash drive which is also not working. Windows also ends up unable to load, the startup repair runs and things work fine. Not long after Windows tries to update and then it becomes unable to load again and the startup repair runs again.

I tried running a registry fix for the .exe problem and I get an error stating that the registry is being used even when no programs are running and I am in safe mode.

Hope this information helps
thanks
Jared

A:Malwarebytes keep blocking sites and Host Processes for Windows keeps closing

Greetings and Welcome to The Forums!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.I have put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of usPlease do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed. This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster. NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of hartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer. NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.Security CheckDownload Security Check by screen317 from here.Save it to your Desktop.Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.Run Combofix:You may be asked to install or update the Recovery Console (Win XP Only) if this happens please allow it to do so (you will need to be connected to the internet for this)Before you run Combofix I will need you to turn off any security software you have running, If you do not know how to do this you can find out >here< or >here<Combofix may need to reboot your computer more than once to do its job this is normal.You can download Combofix from one of these links.Link 1Link 2Link 31. Close any open browsers or any other programs that are open.2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.When finished, it will produce a report for you. Note 1: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stallNote 2: If you recieve an error "Illegal operation attempted on a registery key that has been marked for deletion." Please restart the computer"information and logs"In your next post I need the following

I have been having problems with programs closing unexpectedly on their own without any error message. They will run normally for a few minutes and then just close down. I also have trouble when I run my TrendMicro antivirus, it will run for a few minutes and then I get

Application popup: UfNavi.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x........" referenced memory at "0x........". The memory could not be "read"

where 0x........ is a random address that's different each time.

I can't run any scans because they don't have enough time to finish before the program closes itself down. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am using Windows XP SP2

I end them with task manager and they dissappear from everywhere but Task manager, where they stay no matter how many times i click end process. I tried through command prompt, it said it terminated the process, but it just stays in the task manager process list. I also tried through EndItAll, which told me it didn't have permission to kill the program.

I bought a new computer a couple of days ago and I am experiencing a very interesting problem. Anytime I return to the computer after taking a break from work my monitor shows "No Sync", so I move the mouse and my desktop shows only the desktop versus the programs that I had opened before I went to take my break. As long as I am working on the computer I experience no problems. The problem only seems to arise when I take a break and come back to the "No Sync" on my screen. Could one of the computer's power saving modes be doing this?

Some programs (currently hl.exe is doing it :/) are just not closing right. I end them with task manager and they dissappear from everywhere but Task manager, where they stay no matter how many times i click end process. I tried through command prompt, it said it terminated the process, but it just stays in the task manager process list. I also tried through EndItAll, which told me it didn't have permission to kill the program.

Im currently using XP SP2...
 

A:Programs not closing

hl.exe is a half life executable. Go into your options in the game and see if there is an option to enable/disable auto updates etc.. make sure all options for things relating to HL running at startup are disabled... it could just be memory leak, are you current with all patches/updates for your game?

Hello, I don't know if anyone can help me but any time that i go onto my laptop it closes down every program after 5 seconds with the message 'This program has encoutered and error and has to close do you want to send an error message' after this the program closes down. I don't know what to do. also whenever i turn my computer off it suddenly goes after logging off and shows that it's shutting down, it shows me a blue screen error and then restarts. I have tried a system restore and i don't know what to do. The only program that i can get running for a long time is realplayer when it automatically starts playing a dvd. The laptop is a Acer Aspire 5610 media center edition. i have already tried malwarebytes to no effect.

A:all of my programs keep closing.

Is the only error message you receive...what you quoted in your first post?

Do you have a Microsoft XP install CD? Do you have recovery/restore CDs provided by Acer?

On my old system (Win-98) I could close programs by doing Control-Alt-Delete. On Win-XP when I try to do this, a box pops up that only gives me the option to connect or logoff. There is no list of programs running. I must be looking in the wrong place! - Still a computer idiot - thsh6

The other day I was burning a CD on RealOne Player and all of a sudden, the window closed out. First, I thought there was just some kind of weird, minor mishap. But later, I tried opening AOL instant messenger and it stayed open for 3 seconds and closed out. This also happened with RealOne, and my attempts to Install a newer version (2004) of Nortons Antivirus only lasted until the "Would you like to activate and register now?" screen, which was 3 seconds into installation. Something keeps closing my programs. I also cannot stay long in the Add/Remove Files window. I just installed Bullgard and it detected:

C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT\00008457.EXE=>(FSG 1.33)

Status: Infected Backdoor.Agobot.3.Gen

in which the file was "infected" and was unable to be disinfected. Nortons 2003 did not pick this up. Is there any other way I can rid my programs of closing themselves

I have noticed that today, every time I go to open it (even after uninstalling and redowninging and reinstalling) it will open for a split second in the Task Manager view and then close itself.

The same is going on with internet explorer ( i am using FF now ). I open Internet Explorer and try to use it, and it just closes after attempting to open a site.

Also, I have scanned my PC with Norton 360 (newest norton suite) and it didn't find anything.

THe last thing, I recently had my RAM replaced in my Laptop because a stick went bad. IT was causing the DELL loading screen to freeze. It's happening again every once in a while when I turn on my PC, why?

Hi,

Never heard of something like this, but the Graphics Card situation sounds familiar. I doubt your GPU is causing your programs to close though. Here's what I would do if I were in your shoes:

Uninstall and reinstall your GPU. Grab the latest drivers and make sure they are properly installed.Run an antivirus check. I personally recommend Malwarebytes Free.

Hope this helps.

Hello,
I have a problem which started recently. The problem is that everything closes unexpectedly.
I am using the classic desktop environment to use this system and all the 'apps' I use a classing Windows programs.
Randomly all of the programs that are running on the machine close down without warning (And I mean ALL of them, even explorer.exe). I know that this has not been caused by a recent installation of a program as I have not installed anything recently. I also checked the computer with an Anti-Virus software as that could have been a cause but there wasn't anything.

Im not sure if anyone has experienced this issue as I did not find anything through Google

Does anyone know how can I solve this?

Thanks,
Oskar

A:All Programs Closing

All programs close but windows does not shut down? Just stays at desktop?

Do a malware/spyware check.

Spybot search and destroy

If spybot does not clear the problem then download and run COMBOFIX

A:computer closing programs

Hi Monica and wlecome to the forum!Sounds to me like you are infected with something.For starters, download install, update and run both MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpyware. Get the free versions and do the complete scans with both. This could take a while so go kill some time while they are scanning.Remove all elements found and reboot if prompted to do so.If this does not clear up your issue let us know so that we can get you moved to the Malware Response Team.

A:Programs Closing due to APPCRASH

Initial troubleshooting steps for Explorer related issues:Check Windows for corruption.

I am glad to see you ran a virus scan; the problem you describe is often associated with viruses/malware on the system. You should also download and install Malwarebytes, update it, do not start the free trial, and then run a full scan.

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup and see if a startup or service item is causing conflicts. When you disable startup and services items, make sure you hide all non-Microsoft services first. Leave only your Norton software set to start in both startup and services.

In the past I've had problems with Internet Explorer closing abruptly after a couple minutes of having it open, I solved that problem by downloading Mozilla Firefox. But now I bought and installed WebEasy6 and after a few minutes of opening the program it abruptly closes and I lose my work. I have AOL Safety and Security Center and it tells me there is no known viruses or adware/spyware. I am out of ideas. PLEASE HELP ME OUT!
Thanks- Sean
 

A:Programs closing abruptly

Post a Hijackthis scanlog and also run eventvwr.msc and look at the applications log; if you have IE7 there is also an IE log.

Double click any relevant errors to read the description and use the double-paper copy icon to copy the description here for pasting.

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

Has anyone else noticed this,

I am using a browser, and for example looking at the forum here. When I close the browser without logging out from the forum and then restart the browser I am still logged in.

This never happens with Vista, I always have to login again

Does seven not close the programs properly to speed up the re-opening??

Does this not infringe on some aspect off security? Not for me I am the only user

Could this be a bug?

This works for both IE and Firefox

I have a couple of downloaded games from AOL/Pogo that don't close when I close them. My system gets really boggy and when I go to task manager I see that the game program is still running and consuming a lot of memory. When I "end task" everything frees up beautifully. Aside from uninstalling the games, any thoughts?

Thanks!

I upgraded to Windows 10 when it first came out, and everything has been fin until recently. It feels like most everything I click on has a 1 in 20 chance of just closing itself with no error message. In Edge for instance if I double click on the top part to full-screen the page a message pops up asking if I would like to close all tabs, this message could pop up any time I click anywhere but it occurs 100% of the time if I double click the top.

League of Legends clients will flicker on the taskbar as if something is trying to close the program but failing, and occasionally it will close itself with no warning, same with a lot of Steam games, any other browsers, or most programs I try. I just recently reset my computer attempting to fix the issue but the problem is still there, any help is greatly appreciated

Sounds like there's something else that's eating away at your computer. You might want to run a virus scan (http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/) to see if that's the case.

Everytime I open a certain program on my computer, I get this message:
"Studio program file has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
And then the program closes abruptly. Any ideas on how i can stop this?

A:How to stop programs from closing on their own?

There is a problem with the install of the program.Some files may be corrupt. Uninstall the program using Revo Uninstaller Do the advanced method and remove any leftover files from the Registry. restart the computer. then reinstall the software program. Look to the web site of the software manufacturer for an updated version.

A:Programs Keep Randomly Closing Themselves

Likely malware. Try scanning using a tool such as MalwareBytes.

You should boot into Safe Mode and perform the AV and malware scan.

Hi All I have a question that I have been unable to solve but first I will start off by saying I am running boot camp on a mac just so there is no confusion I am an architecture student and am using a program called Revit to render D models regularly Due to the long render times find myself stuck waiting many hrs up to many days with my computer tied up rendering Recently after a lapse in smart thinking my without closing programs? Restart battery went dead and I thought I had lost hrs of rendering time I then disappointingly restarted my computer to restart the render but found that Windows had saved as a last effort to maintain my program files and unsaved data the progress of the render and it continued upon reboot My question is is there a way to mimic this on demand so that I can boot into osx without having Restart without closing programs? to wait for renderings to finish or close them prematurely Thanks for your help

A:Restart without closing programs?

As far as I know, Boot Camp is the 'Mac version' of dual booting, correct? In that case, the short answer is no; if you switch to OSX, you will have to shut down or hibernate your Windows installation.

However, something you can try is using virtual machines. This way you can have OSX as your main system, and have Windows run on a virtual machine inside OSX, allowing you to switch between the two as you please.

Well, I've had problems with the stupid license thing before too and there's one thing to check that might fix alot of things. When I had the license problem it was because my PC clock had been set back alot of years, I know it sounds awkward but that's what happens, so check your PC clock year and switch it back if it was changed. If that's not it post back.

P.S. You shouldn't have Panda AND Avg installed, it should be one or the other because they cause problems with each other, just like most Anti virus when you put more than one on.

Hi Guys, I am using another computer to explain the issues with mine..
I am not sure I am in the correct area but if not please direct me.
When I open anything on my computer it freezes solid and I can't close it at all.
The only way to close the program is ctl,alt. delete...

I did a defrag also a malware run and all my updates are to date..
The computer is running Vista if that makes any difference.

So can you please put me on the right track to getting this problem fixed..?

Thank You

Hello, I have recently re-imaged my laptop after it was experiencing a few lag issues but I believe it is more along the lines of RAM (besides the point). I have installed Norton 360 and this was about my third re-imaging of this particular laptop (2 years old). Whenever I open a full screen program after a certain time (30-90 minutes) the program automatically closes without any error dialogs. Nothing happens before or after this anomoli and I would appreciate if someone could give me their two-cents. I DO have a partitioned drive expanded off of my C: drive.

What I think:
I don't believe it to be malware because I just re-imaged.
It could deal with memory like a memory leak of sorts but I'm not sure if that makes sense.
OS: Windows Vista (Upgraded SP2)
RAM: 1500MB
Processor: 1.73 GHz 1.73 GHz Intel Celeron M

A:Automatically Closing Programs

hello

you asked for two cent's worth, I would start by uninstalling norton (as a test) and be sure to use the proper removal tool!

next: if you reimage a drive with an infected image, couldn't you still be infected?

If you have the recovery discs, I think theres a memory test under startup repair...http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/

alright thats my 2 cents worth!!

good luck

With vista and previous OS's it was easy to just right-click a program on the taskbar and hit the letter "c" to close it. you could very rapidly close a series of windows from the taskbar.

now in win7 x64 when i right click a program in the taskbar and hit 'c' it simply highlights the "close window" option... requiring me to either have to hit enter or click on the selected option "close window"

is it possible to have things work like they used to ?? such that a right-click and then the letter 'c' would close the window without any additional input ?

thanks in advance

Hi Room this is my first post!

Must say its really great to find a good IT forum on the net.

Anyway I have just recently purchased Win XP Pro SP2 OEM with a new Hard Drive (200GB Seagate). Unfortunately I seem to be having one problem after another.

One of my problems is whenever I close a program it remains in my Task List using up some of my system memory. I have carried out several windows updates in the hope that one would contain a fix for the problem, but no luck. I am at the moment running SFC to see if that will sort the problem.

Has anyone got any ideas as to how this problem can be resolved?

Thanks in Advance

I downloaded ad aware and was advised when doing it to close any programs
running, before installing it.

I knew how to do this on my old Win 95 but not sure how to on XP.

( just another dumb question, that the easiest to answer)

Thanks for any help.

You're probably ok installing it without ending anything but here's how to do it. Press Alt/Ctrl/Del and Task Manager should appear. Click on the "Applications" tab and you can end them from there ...

I have a rogue application that fires up every now and then. It will minimize my games and show something with no name in my taskbar for just a second, and then disappear. Leaving me at my desktop. I have run loads of virus scanners, ad-aware, spybot... yadda yadda.. I just want to find a simple and free program that I can run for 30 minutes to catch the little bugger.

It is Windows Defender now...Then, * Download Combofix to your desktop.Doubleclick combofix.exeFollow the prompts.Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt.

Hi kstater7 and welcome to TSF !

Try to uninstall quicktime and any codec pack you could have installed and install the K-lite codec pack (standard version shoud suffice, make sure you install ffdshow) and quicktime alternative instead. See if it helps.

See if using media player classic (included in K-lite) or vlc to play your media files shows the same behaviour.

Problem which Kodak tech support cannot solve:
Kodak DCS Pro SLR/n digital camera working connected with computer Pentium 4 Windows XP using Kodak Camera Manager software.
Connection between camera and computer via Firewire IEEE 1394 Device in the mode where computer (via Kodak Camera Manager software) controls Camera and uploads the images.

Crash has 2 "flavors" but all of them happen when camera shutter release shoots many shots without waiting of the previous shot to be uploaded to computer.
1st crash - is total system reboot.
2nd crash - only Kodak Camera Manager crashes and then when restarted the program, it still does not work until I reboot the system.

In short: when many shots/images accumulate forcing overflow over the IEEE 1394 Device, either Camera Manager crashes or system reboots (which might also be caused by Camera Manager).
Please help.

Hi. I've been getting a BSOD crash intermittently when I close programs like Mozilla Firefox or Starcraft and Counterstrike: Source. The only thing I remember seeing from the BSOD is Quota_Underflow. I turned off the automatic restart just now. I downloaded the .exe file in the sticky but I'm not sure how to get the log from the BSOD.

Would really appreciate the help.
