issues uninstalling

Recommended Posts

So I want to do a complete uninstall of malwarebytes and malwarebytes anti rookit.

I have uninstalled malwarebytes fine, however 2 files remain.

Mbamswissarmy.sys (system32/drivers folder)

Mbamchameleon.sys (system32/drivers folder)

Can I delete these and delete any malwarebytes registry keys?

Now with malwarebytes anti rootkit when I tried deleting the foldermit said folder access denied. I had placed the mbar folder in this directory.


Sysinternals as I had some sysinternal programs e.g process explorer.

I restarted and I was able to delete it. Why wasnt I able to delete it? Was that behaviour normal? I had just run a scan with it.

So can I get help with my two questions? Thanks.

If you had either recently ran Malwarebytes Antimalware or Anti-rootkit then the files were still open/in use that is whey you could not delete them.

I can not tell you if its safe to remove anything from your registry without seeing the whole key...

Again using the mbam-clean tool is the preferred method...
