Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.
  • Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and rename it to mysetup.scr.
  • Change the .exe extension to .scr, .com, .pif, or .bat.
  • Then double-click on mysetup.bat to run.
  • If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files.
  • Right-click on mbam.exe and rename it to myscan.
  • Change the .exe extension in the same way as noted above.
  • Then double-click on myscan.scr to run.

I cant mbam-setup.exe in order to right click on it. Also, my computer that is infected will not let me go to the bleeping computer website so I cannot directly download malwarebytes from the site, I have to download it from a site that is called downloads.com I believe. This is very stressful!

MBAM official download @ CNET:
http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-...&tag=button

MBAM alternate download sites:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Ant...ware_d5756.html
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Mal...i-Malware.shtml
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwa.../mbam-setup.exe
http://www.besttechie.net/tools/mbam-setup.exe
http://malwarebytes.gt500.org/mbam-setup.exe
http://www.malwaresupport.com/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

I cant mbam-setup.exe in order to right click on it.

Please clarify that statement. Are you saying you cannot use right-click? What about double-clicking, does that work?
