The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.

Sometimes malware will not allow programs that might detect or remove it to launch or even the installation program to run (and appear as a running task) just by the name of the executable itself. It knows such things.
For an already installed MBAM, the process would show up as mbam.exe. There are many others. Assume your malware knows about all AV programs, so try to outsmart it.
Assuming you have MBAM installed, make a copy of mbam.exe and try to run the copy - call it tangent.exe or something and then try to run that. Then tangent.exe will be running.
Malwarebytes says they prefers MBAM to run in normal (not Safe Mode), but that doesn't mean you can't at least try it in safe mode if you need to and try to get some functionality back.
If tangent.exe works, you can try your other AV programs using the same method.
Save reformatting for your very last option.
