How to remove Malwarebytes?

Recommended Posts

A computer service engineer installed Malwarebytes on my computer and I can't get rid of it! It's still on the main bar on my MacBook pro and  I keep getting the company notifications that a new version is available.  I never took the free version or bought the charged versions - I want to get this off my PC.  Please help.

Be aware that the free version you have, as well as the current update will still be free forever and can be made to simply sit on your computer without interfering with anything, so it will be there if at some point in the future you feel a need to check your MBP.

In such a case, you can do one of two things:

1) Reinstall Malwarebytes for Mac (re-download from the following link, if necessary), then uninstall by following the directions at the link above.

2) Download and run the following AppleScript applet, which will uninstall the software.
