Check for the root kit with tdss killer as Pc_solutions50501 recommended but also you may want to reboot into a recovery console and have you windows disk avalible and run sfc /scannow from there this will take care of permission issues with resource file.

It may be blocking because of infection or corruption. In this particular type of situation with mss.log do not directly delete its better to repair it by running SFC /scannow. If that does not work and you know the file is safe write an exclusion or exception into malwarebytes for that specific file and it will not block it anymore. This is done (depending on your version) in "File System Sheild" under expert settings.

I am assuming this is windows 7. click the start orb then in the search type command don't press enter. Right click command prompt in the start menu then select run as administrator then after command prompt opens type sfc /scannow into the command prompt and then press enter

If Malwarebytes is blocking something constantly, try running TDSSKiller to check for rootkit infections.

As for the corrupted files, since sfc scannow did not fix them, do an in place upgrade.
