Malwarebytes freezes while removing malware

3 posts in this topic

When doing a quick scan, it shows a ton of malware that needs to be deleted. I select all of them, click 'remove selected' and it freezes up. I have attached the necessary files.

and if anyone is curious, this is not my computer, I am trying to fix this for someone else :P
