What version of Malwarebytes are you running, the 3.1?

 

Malwarebytes shouldn't interfere with a download. 

 

What happens when you try to download the CPU-Z? 

 

What website are you trying to download it from?

Hi, pinegum!
 
The only scenario in which Malwarebytes actually could interfere with a download (like CPU-Z), would be if you are downloading it from a third-party download site, because such sites have an increasing tendency to bundle Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) with their downloads.
 
Since Malwarebytes is an anti-malware program, it specifically targets PUPs, and it has an aggressive PUP policy.
 
So, in order to avoid this, you should make sure to only download software from the author's (CPUID) site, and even so, you should consider downloading the ZIP version in stead of the SETUP / INSTALL version, as the former is less likely to contain PUPs than the latter.
 
And, for convenience reasons, here is the author's download site: https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
 
Good luck! :)
 
Regards,
midimusicman79

Yes, Malwarebytes has an aggressive stand on PUPs and has been in the forefront to educate product users and blog readers for many years. This is what Malwarebytes has to say:

I've been working with a tech on Sysnative forum page for about a  month.  He's solving my problem with "Windows updates won't install" I really don't think he'd give me a link that would harm my computer (at least I'm hoping) I've been using Malware Preimum for about the last three years and like it. I also have Norton 360 running at the same time, no problems I'm aware of. Thanks for your comments.

You should be careful running more than one AV solution on your machine, they tend to "counteract one-another" at given times.

Malwarebytes 3.x is not an anti-virus...see here. This is a more detailed explanation by David H. Lipman, a trusted Security Colleague and Malware Researcher/Analyst.
