Have you always had Combofix installed where MSE would run normally ?

Combofix is a very powerful program and shouldn't really be used without supervision - it has been known to take out system files.

I would get rid of Combofix and just stay with MBAM for a scanner - I assume you are using the free version of MBAM ?

Those registry entries are meaningless to me as I don't have anything to compare them with.

Event Viewer may be a better source of info.

What I'd like to know is if you downloaded anything immediately prior to this problem - that's what I mean by history - how and when did it occur.
Tom.

Rick:

I don't want to hijack your thread.  I only want to emphasize what Boggin has already advised you: don't use Combofix unless it is absolutely required, and then only under supervision.  Please see this link for more information about the dangers of running Combofix, which is no longer being maintained.

I am a Malware Response Instructor over at Bleeping Computer.  I have seen computers damaged, and, in all of the computers that I have disinfected from malware, I have never found it necessary to run Combofix.  It is a very powerful program, and now that is not being maintained, the more recent Windows updates for Windows 7 and before (it is not compatible for Windows 8 and 10) could cause all kinds of unanticipated problems.  I am suspicious that Combofix might have caused your issues.

You could always open a topic at Bleeping Computer in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs Forum and request that your computer be checked for malware.  Please follow the instructions in this topic before posting there.

If you do decide to seek help, please let Boggin know that you have gone there for assistance.

Have a great day, and good luck with getting your MSE working again.
