So I had cheat engine 6.3 for the longest time, used it last week for BL2 and yesterday I decided to run it and I get an error message after installing that says windows cannot find the specified file with an error code 2. I've turned off all antivirus and what not and tried to reinstall but no luck. I am wondering because I just updated to latest windows update that it maybe blocking it?

Try renaming your cheatengine.exe files to something else. (e.g rename cheatengine-x86_64.exe to goat.exe and run that)

If that works, try reinstalling windows, as this may be a sign that you have been infected by a rootkit that tries to hide itself by blocking CE from starting. (CE can be used to detect rootkits)

Changed the name of the file and it worked. Now I'm scanning with multiple programs malwarebytes, rkill, JRT, TDSS killer, adware cleaner.
