If the alternatives suggested by boopme don't work, try renaming the mbam-setup.exe file to something else (like abcde.bat) and then try it.

Hello :thumbsup:

When you say it is not installing - do you mean the file appears to not be opening or is it pausing halfway through the install?

What OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) are you using?

The file you downloaded could have been corrupted or did not download properly. Redownload the setup file and try again. Save it to your desktop and double-click to install. You can also right-click on the file and choose Open or Run as Administrator.
