Can't delete "mbar" folder

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkits BETA on the website, and now I can't delete the folder.

When I try to delete the file comes the following error message:

"You need permissions to perform the operation you have the necessary permissions."PC\ PC"get to make the changes to this folder can."

I don't know, what I can do..

Until the staff members weigh in:


Do you have MBAM Self-Protection module enabled, by any chance (Settings > Advanced Settings)?


If so, it can prevent changes/renaming/removal of certain other Malwarebytes software features/shortcuts/etc.  At least, that behavior was previously described.


It might be worth a try to disable that setting, if it's enabled.

Then reboot.

Then try to delete the MBAR shortcut/folder.


Please let us know how it goes,
