You have to rename the exe file that starts up when you try to run Malwarebytes. To do that go to My Computer - C:\ - Program Files \ MalwareBytes Anti-Malware \
Right click on mbam and select properties. Change the name to something like mbamm and click ok. Double click the file and it should now open.
I'm also having the same exact issues as the posters above. I was able to get MBAM to install and run, but it won't remove everything. I've ran it in safemode, it finds everything, says it needs to delete items on reboot, I click ok to reboot, it loads back up, and Spyware Guard 2008 is still there.
I'd really like to avoid reformatting
. If a log would help or if I should create a new thread, I'll do that.
