Same problem here: Windows Uninstaller is not working.

I use Version

Then I tried the clean tool mbam-clean- but I just read here that that is designed for version 2, not 3.
(I really hope running it didn't screw up anything else.)

So I went with Porthos suggestion: Reinstall it. I tried that, but get an error during install:


An error occured while trying to replace the existing file.

DeleteFile failed: code 5.

Access is denied.

Click retry, etc, etc..

So I click Cancel (as advised), and it rolls back changes.


I am getting a bit desperate.

I wanted to try malwarebytes, so I installed the lastest

It didn't work (I only get 'Unable to connect to service'), so I decided to unintall.

Tried windows uninstall: Error

Tried clean-up tool: Works only for version 2.

Tried re-install over the former install: Error (above).


Please help: How do I get it out of my PC?
