...downloaded Maleware Bytes from this site. As promised, it was not an automatic install.
How do I manually install it on a Win7, 64bit PC?
Great site!

Double-click on the downloaded file - it should be no different from any other program install.

You can download Malwarebytes here at BleepingComputer.

This will automatically start the download. Once it is downloaded open it and the installation will prompt you in what to do.

What browser are you using?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Are you looking for your download history in Settings?

If needed....
uninstall/reinstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware as follows:

For Windows XP:
  • First uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
  • Restart the computer.
  • Download the mbam-clean.exe (MBAM Cleanup Utility) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on mbamclean.exe to start the utility.
  • When the cleanup routine has finished, it will ask to reboot your computer. Please allow the reboot.
  • After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus, then download and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.46) from here.
For Windows Vista and Windows 7:
  • First uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Programs and Features in Control Panel.
  • Restart the computer.
  • Download the mbam-clean.exe (MBAM Cleanup Utility) and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on mbamclean.exe to start the utility.
  • When the cleanup routine has finished, it will ask to reboot your computer. Please allow the reboot.
  • After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus, then download and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.46) from here.
-- If using the Pro version, you will need to reactivate the program using the license key you were sent. If using the free version, then just ignore that part.
-- Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab and check for updates if not done during installation.
-- Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray if using the Pro version. Now setup any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.
