Hi hodge podge,
Sometimes you can get MalwareBytes to run by changing either the name or the extension
If after installation, MBAM will not run,
open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files
* Right-click on mbam.exe
, rename it to mbscan.exe
* Double-click on mbscan.exe
to launch the program.
* If that does not work, try renaming the .exe to .scr or .cmd (so it would be mbscan.scr or mbscan.cmd)
* Double-click on mbscan.scr
(or whatever extension you renamed it) to launch the program.
If using Windows Vista, refer to How to Change a File Extension in Windows Vista.
If you can get MalwareBytes
to run, do a full system scan and have it fix what it finds
. Then post the results here
in your next post.
