Welcome to Malwarebytes! Does your browser work? Where are you trying to download Malwarebytes from? and what is your OS? and AV and is there a Firewall?

I am running Charter Security Suite for the AV. Does it have a fire wall?

Charter Security Suite does have a firewall... There are some files that your AV & Firewall need to Trust which may help with these errors...So you will need to put these files in the Trust area of your AV & Firewall..

files you need your AV/Firewall for mbam to trust

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mbam.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref (Windows 2000/XP)

See here for just an example: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=17605 Of Trend Micro I use, and what we have to do to make Malwarebytes work... Please try to find the area's in your AV/Firewall program to trust the list of files in the above list and post back with your report, or if you need help. There is always someone here who will help you...regards.

thanks for the info i will start this afternoon trying to get these files in the trust section. Not sure where to look but I am going to give it a shot.

I do have one question. I am downloading the setup files to a USB stick I am attemtpitng to install from the USB to the infected computer. Is the correct method to use? kind of flustrated and not sure I am doing the right things.

If you would like help cleaning the PC, read and follow the instructions below. The helpers in the HJT log forum will get you sorted out :(

Scan and post logs - read note at bottom in green

2. If needed please post your logs in a NEW topic here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs

3. When posting logs please do not use any Quote, Code, or other tags. Please copy/paste directly into your post and do not attach files unless requested.
