HELP! I cannot install MalwareBytes

Recommended Posts

I recently installed adware by mistake and have been attempting to remove the applications it installed and return my computer to its normal functional state. I have tried restoring my computer to a time before I installed the adware but a file is "corrupt" and fails to complete. I have also tried installing MalwareBytes through Chrome/Firefox and neither will connect due to DNS error. I then uninstalled both browsers in hopes to reinstall a non-corrupt version of the browsers through Microsoft Edge but that will not connect either. So as a last attempt I looked to install either browser through command line and my connection keeps timing out. If anyone can supply some solution to this I would really appreciate it. I would like to stay away from wiping my computer if possible but will use if no other solution is found. Thanks!
