Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.
- Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first
Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.
If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..
- Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.

I can understand this might be the case, but shouldn't there be some evidence besides the spybot scan?
It could just be fragments left behind. Lets see if we can find them and delete them for good.

That is a symptom of an infection.
Attempted to install but got an error (same as previous time) so stopped, renamed mbam-setup.exe to mbam-setup.bat and proceeded to install again. No error.
