You need MBAM-Clean.  First, I hope you have your license information safely stored away.  Although much won't apply to your situation, instructions are here:  MBAM Clean Removal Process.

In trying to scan a file with MalwareBytes today, I noticed it didn't work, and the icon was gone from the task bar.
When I tried to open it, I got an error message:
Quote
mbam.exe System Error
The code execution cannot proceed beacuse mbcut.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
I read something online that suggested not to use the Windows control panel to remove, but use the MBAM tool. 

At this point, I realized I needed the expert help of the Landzdown wizards.
I did restart my computer (which also installed this months Windows Updates successfully), but the problem was the same after the restart.

Windows Defender is on patrol and MBAM is not listed in startups.  But I noticed that  Scotty's icons was missing along with MBAM before the restart.   Its kind of odd, because I opened the WinPatrol console shortly before all this happened for the first time in a long time.   Scotty is  back now though.

So, how do I proceed? 

Windows 10 Pro 64bit Version   10.0.17134 Build 17134

I don't blame you, Ria.

Let's make some pop corn (volume on) or watch the falling guy (scroll up or down the poor guy).   8)

P.S. It's much better to kill your time instead of having your time killing you (Panos).

Thanks, Corrine and Satrow. I knew/suspected that something was not said right in HTG site. I'm very satisfied with PM, and every computer I brought here for cleaning has now PM installed. Even at school I worked the previous years, my colleagues learned about it and use it.  And it's good to hear all these from someone he is involved with this project.

Loads OK for me in both Firefox and Edge, but I did notice a real L O N G response time most of yesterday.

Working fine here on Windows 10, Pale Moon 28 as well as with Microsoft Edge, both also with uBlock Origin.

Although I have often referred to HTG links as examples of "how to" for various steps when they contain good pictorial instructions, I'll most definitely take satrow's explanation over the HTG article in this case.  The reason?  If you've spent any time at the Pale Moon forum, you'll note the name of the only Global Moderator who isn't the Founder/Admin (Moonchild, M.C. Straver) or the Pale Moon Linux Developer just so happens to be satrow.  IMO, other than Moonchild himself, there isn't likely to be many (any) people who know more about the development/process of Pale Moon than satrow.

Additionally, something I've noted many times with Pale Moon updates is the inclusion that the update includes DiD ("Defense-in-Depth") changes, defined as "a fix does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered."  In other words, taking that extra step to protect users of Pale Moon.

No problems here, W7x64 Pale Moon 28, uBlockO. I'm still offered the 'new, improved' Beta version each time I login :)

@plodr: assuming hardware acceleration is on, could you try turning it off? Preferences > Advanced > General tab (makes the CPU do more of the work usually handed off to the GPU).

@DR M: The HTG article (and some of his other recent topics) is rather biased and quite flawed, the comments (why do I have to sign up and login there to see them now?!) did give him some flak over this.

Pale Moon is based loosely on FF 52/53, GUI design is I think older for better user customisation; much of the later FF changes haven't been taken up by PM (some are ephemeral 'tests' or promotions anyway, others are weaker than those replaced, things like DRM go against the idea of an 'open' web) and have been stripped out; web compatibility is a little behind the curve, FF/Chrome tend to make experimental/beta changes/additions whereas PM tries to keep close to the web standards. Security -wise, PM lags by a few days because Mozilla keep us waiting on the details needed to patch, though PM can be ahead in some areas, esp. where Mozilla's fixed 6 week cycle means they leave 'minor' issues for the next patch day/update.
