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.

It would help if the mods knew what antimalware tools you have used, what your OS is: XP, Vista. Service pack(s) installed?
