Running the current free version on Windows 10. Just ran a scan so it appears to be working fine.  When I open the control panel and pull up "Programs" it is missing from the list. There is an uninstall program in its folder.

 

Should I consider reinstalling?

I've encountered software which failed to create a program entry in Programs & Features (Add/Remove) from time to time. It's no big deal if everything is working properly and there is an uninstall shortcut in the program folder.

If you want to attempt to correct it anyway, one of the solutions generally suggested by the Malwarebytes Help Desk to try first is to uninstall/reinstall using mbam-clean.exe as follows:If it still fails to add an entry you might want to start a new topic in the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Help Forum and report the issue there so the development team can investigate.

Thanks, first thing I did was go to Malwarebytes.com and look for a forum but I missed the link at the bottom of the page.  I got it now.
