Hi All

Sometime ago malwarebytes would not run on my computer....i found a suugestion here to change the name of the software....not sure and cant remember. I know it worked last time by tricking the malware with a different name...anyone know how to do theis?

Inorder to do this you need to make sure MBAM is not running.

Navigate to the MBAM folder in Programfiles directory.

Locate MBAM.exe and rename it to say ihatemalware.exe

Next click on the new file to launch MBAM

This will work for some infections that block our software but not all.
