Obtaining Malwarebytes

MalwareBytes Doesn't Run

If you find MalwareBytes doesn't open, this may be because any malware/junkware in the system has set registry entries which causes it to fail or suppresses it. To resolve,

  1. Open an elevated command prompt.

  2. Type:

    ren "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" mbtmp.exe

    ren "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" mbtmp.exe

  3. Run mbtmp.exe.

    MalwareBytes should then remove the hacked registry entries.
