Hello - I installed malwarebytes a few weeks ago and the trial is expiring. Now I need to uninstall this application but keep receiving the following error "Unable to create a temporary file. Set up aborted. Error 5: access is denied". I am not the most technical person but here is what I tried: 1. Using the uninstall malwarebytes option from windows 10 menu resulted in the same error 2. Trying to uninstall from add/remove programs resulted in the same error 3. closing MB processes from task manager and stopping mbam services results in the same error 4. windows/program files/malwarebytes main folded is restricted to read only. I have admin privileges but am still unable to apply changes to the main/sub folders Is there a complete resolution to uninstalling malwarebytes that does not include manually removing files and changing registry settings? I have already spent too much time trying to get this "free" version uninstalled to no avail.
