this appears to happen every time an old file that was associated with a previous installation of malwarebytes, needs to be exchanged for a new one the installer is trying to put in
if i keep ignoring the frequent error message, eventually there is this error message;
is_persist_malwarebytes_install_assoc_w_code_5_access_denied.jpg 33.47KB 19 downloads
the access denied error is stopping me from doing other things as well. such as updating the firmware on my modem, or uninstalling drivers.
finally the malwarebytes icon turns up on the desktop along with the following error message;
error_code_714_malwarebytes_install.jpg 31.92KB 16 downloads
and if, after rebooting the computer, i try to run the application, i get that same error message.
i have googled this and there was some advice to do with permissions and dependencies in the services, which didn't work, but i am willing to try it all again if someone thinks there is a possible solution
