You don't need to uninstall, but you need to disable the service. I am on my Win7 machine, but it's similar in Win10 Go to your task manager. Right click on mbam and choose "go to services" From there find the malwarebytes service. Then you need to go to properties. If you go to stop service directly it will give you an error message saying the service cannot be stopped. So go to properties and from there select the start service as disabled. Then hit apply. This will keep it from restarting when you end it from the task manager.
