My question may have been asked already but I cannot take the time to see if it has. My computer was assaulted with popups on top of popups interfering with my surfing. I wrote to Malwarebytes and received a reply from Arthur Wilkinson with instructions on how to download RSIT and attach the log to a reply. I did so and he further suggested I run ComboFix. My problem for which I'm requesting help is disabling Malwarebytes to comply with instructions on how to disable my Windows Firewall and BitDefender.

I cannot find Malwarebytes included in the list and there are no instructions on how to do it.

How do you disable Malwarebytes?
