Hello and :)

Sorry to hear you are having issues.....

Please do the following:

(Perform a clean/fresh install of Malwarebytes)

NOTE: These steps need to be performed on your computer while logged in as an Administrator.....

  • Download and run mbam-clean.exe from HERE
  • It will ask to restart your computer, please allow it to do so very important
  • After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from HERE
    • Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via email if using the Pro version
    • Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.
      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. You may use the guides posted in the FAQ's HERE or ask and we'll explain how to do it.

Should the instructions above not correct your issue please let us know....

Same thing happened to me and malwarebytes will not run, same error message.Since I still have the original mail with the actual download link when I purchased malwarebytes, can I use that or I still have to do it from here?

Thank you

You could use the one you got in the mail, but bear in mind that the version you got in the mail may be an older version. It is best to follow my instructions from above.....
