I'm on 3.0 and tried to manually update to the latest version, but I got the error message in the first screenshot while trying to install it. I then uninstalled Malwarebytes, and got the same message while trying to install it again. I read somewhere that I should delete the mbae64.sys file in C:\Windows\System32\drivers, then to try installing it again, but I can't (see 2nd screenshot). Apparently the file is being used by something, but I can't identify it in the Task Manager. I'm running as administrator and even restarted.. nothing helps. I looked inside the Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware folder and there is this mbae.dll file inside (3rd screenshot). I had Anti-Exploit installed before 3.0, but after 3.0 I don't know why this file is still exists. My system has been acting wonky ever since this went down.. some programs will open, but won't stay running. Please help.
