Malwarebytes icon says text only

Recommended Posts



I have been running Malwarebytes with no problems for a while, however the Windows 8 laptop got the Ukash thing and i have been trying to get rid of it.  I have to say at this point I am not great at these things...  


Any how I have done a system restore and then I went to run Malwarebytes, when I clicked on the icon it tell me this is text only.  My next step was to try and install it again as I assumed it had gone after the system restore, however i was told it was already installed and couldn't be again... Next I tried to uninstall, thinking I could then reinstall.. no luck it tells me I can't uninstall.  No matter I thought I would come back to that... so I next downloaded Hitman Pro and ran that, it found 174 threats, which I think I got rid of but after all that the Ukash is still there, absolutely no change.


So, my question is, how do I get malwarebytes back on the laptop...once I do I plan to upgrade.


Any help would be gratefully received.

Yes the system restore did indeed break your Malwarebytes. A clean re-install should solve it. See below

We can't work on malware diagnostics and removal in this sub-section of the forum.

So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
