Malwarebytes won't start

Recommended Posts



I tried running Malwarebytes and get the following dialog box message:


C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

The service cannot accept control messages at this time.


I tried to uninstall and get the following:


An error occurred while trying to uninstall... It may have already been uninstalled.

Would you like to remove...from the Programs and Features list?


When I click yes, the dialog box closes but the program is still listed. Version last installed (still installed?) is installed on 6/27/14.


Trying to install a newly downloaded copy I get:


The service cannot accept control messages at this time


Any help would be appreciated.


Windows 7 Pro


ZT systems i7-3770

64 bit OS
