Malwarebytes for the MAC

Recommended Posts

No, OS X 10.11.2 should allow you to drag things to the Applications folder.


I assume you are dragging the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware icon from the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.dmg disk image onto the Applications folder icon shown here:




If that is correct, and it's not working, try double-clicking the Applications folder icon shown in that window. Does it open the Applications folder? If so, is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware already there?

Open the Terminal app (found in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder). In the Terminal, paste or type the following command:


ls -al /


(Note that the command contains lowercase Ls, not the number 1.)


What does the line showing the Applications folder looks like? On a typical system, it should look something like this:


drwxrwxr-x+   99 root    admin    3366 Dec 10 12:13 Applications

Hello treed and owen 938,


I was alerted to "Malwarebytes for Mac" last month by my son-in-law whose profession is in commercial IT support albeit in a Windows environment.


I am running El Capitan 10.11.3. I downloaded the "MBAM-Mac-" file and installed it into the Applications folder via the "Drag MBAM icon onto the "Applications" folder alias icon" method in the Installer window.  Perhaps some other OS X factor is at play?


Sincerely, Ranger1.
