Malwarebytes Installation Error. Error 5: Access Is Denied

Recommended Posts

Hi Malwarebytes community.


Malwarebytes is acting up for me and it is giving me a message when "Creating directories...":

Setup was unable to create the directory

"C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware".


Error 5: Access is denied.


When I press "OK" 

Setup was not completed.


Please correct the problem and run Setup again.



Then it just rolls back the changes.


I've tried looking at other topics which are almost the same as mine but no dice unfortunately.


I run with windows 8.



Thank you for your time.
