Malwarebytes in Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Hello. I'm new to this forum, so forgive me if I neglect anything. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS operating system. Having been a Malwarebytes user for literally years, I installed the Wine program to install Windows programs on Linux systems. I installed Malwarebytes, and I can do a  custom scan, but I can't do a threat scan or a hyper scan. Also, when I first open up the app, I get a popup stating that the anti rootkit program is not installed. It prompts me to restart and attempt to install the program, but it fails every time. I installed the program through the tools menu, but it still won't work. Attached, see my screen shot. Also, for some reason I can't maximize the window. I hope you can help.

Thank you,

Fred Broder

Hello and :welcome:

This is because Malwarebytes is not designed to work in that environment. I only supports Windows operating systems.

Software Requirements:

Windows Vista/Windows7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1 (32 bit or 64 bit)

Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Later

Internet Explorer 6 or newer
