mbamservice.exe has suddenly started running continually

16 posts in this topic

One of my two laptops took nearly 15 minutes to boot up today. Both laptops are Dell, one with XP and one with Win 7. Both have the paid version of Malwarebytes. When the slow (XP) laptop finally started I opened task manager. It shows mbamservice.exe running and using 110 MB of memory. The other laptop doesn't show any mbam running. I'm guessing it is to run at startup, then when finished shut off. But it is not shutting off in the XP laptop.

Ideas? Fixes?

Thanks.

Hello Blankandson and Welcome to Malwarebytes

Please create an mbam-check log:

  • Download mbam-check.exe from here and save it to your desktop
  • Double-click on mbam-check.exe to run it, it should then open a log file
  • Please do not copy and paste the entire contents of the log into your next post, instead please attach the log CheckResults.txt file which should now be located on your desktop to your next post

Please run the following scanner and send back the logs.

Download DDS from one of the locations below and save to your Desktop

dds.scr

dds.com

Temporarily disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click dds.scr or dds.com to run the tool, on Vista or Win 7 right click and select Run as administrator

Click the Run button if prompted with an Open File - Security Warning dialog box.

A black DOS console should open and run for a moment.


    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply: DDS.txt and Attach.txt
    You can ignore the note about zipping the Attach.txt file in most cases.

I've done this but cannot figure out how to add the files as an attachment. Help me do that and they'll be on their way.

Thanks.

attach.txt

I attached the other two files but received a msg saying I didn't have permissions to attach that type of file. At least this one it took.

(I looked and looked and finally found the attachment link!)

If the file has a .LOG extension or other then you'll need to change it to .TXT and you can then attach it.

Actually I just went and looked and we allow .LOG file attachments. What is the extension type you're trying to upload?

In order to attach files you click on the button on the bottom right of your reply called "More Reply Options".

On the protection tab "Enable malicious website blocking" is un-checked and the formerly green box is now orange. I cannot check the box to turn it back on. This is a recent change so I may have done something to cause that.

Done. It did everything as stated, even saying after four scans it detected no malicious files. But nothing has changed - still cannot click "enable malicious website blocking" and MBAM is running, using 110MB of memory.

MBAM is running continually, using 110MB of memory. The box "enable malicious website blocking" un-checked itself and I cannot check it. Protection box is now orange.

I ran the camilion program several times. Each time is said the program had the current updates, it ran fully and it found nothing.

I ran rogue killer and have attached the file from my desktop.

Thanks

Is this the same computer that you have posted about HERE?

This system is having more issues that need to be looked at, and like in your other thread, you need to seek assistance from one of the experts.

Please see the following pinned topic which has information on how to get help with this: Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers

Thank you
