    First Name:
    WinXP Home with SP3
    In the process of cleaning up from "Personal Antivirus" "rogue Virurs"

    Getting this error when running Malwarebytes:- Full or quick scan.
    "Run-time Error '5' Invalid procedure call or argument" error

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Malwarebytes (version 1.40).
    Tried running "mbam-clean.exe" rebooting and reinstalling latest malwarebytes.

    List of files being scanned stops at windows/system32/zipfldr.dll
    Tried renaming this (new on gets created right away)
    Not sure if this is a coincidence or not
    Have run Combofix and Advanced System Care
    Have run SFC, Chkdsk and AVG 8.5 .... all to resolve initial issue.

    I've seen a few posts (not a lot on the runtime error) so I'm wondering if this is a new issue.

    Any help direction appreciated.
