Highlight that driver and right click on it and select DISABLE - NOT uninstall.
Now RESTART your computer.
* Download a copy of Malwarebytes but DO NOT run it yet.
* Rename the downloaded installer file to any generic name such as your own name but keep the .EXE extension on the file and run it.
* Once the program is installed go to the UPDATE tab and try to update the program if you can.
* Then go to the SCANNER tab and run a Quick Scan and allow MBAM to fix anything found.
Does that help?
I have Windows Vista Home Premium and have been having some virus problems lately. I just installed Mcaffee Virusscan Enterprise and also manually had to get rid of antivirus 360 (that was tons of fun)
I tried to download Malware Bytes to make sure there wasn't anything else on the computer, but when I try to install it it says I don't have permission. I tried changing the install folder to something other than Program Files, but then the install stops when it's writing to registry key. I get this error: Error writing to registry Key:
RegSetValueEx failed; code 5
Access is denied
I've checked my access rights and my profile is the only one on the computer, and I have administrator rights, I went to regestry edit and right clicked on the registry key to check permissions, and it looks normal. Full control is checked for administrator. Has anyone seen anything like this? What can I do to fix it? Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks
