Just going through my security programs, last Friday, when I discovered that I could not get MWB to run, either as me or as admin.
Checked the version installed, mbam.exe ver and MBAMWsc.exe ver
Decided to reinstall.  Downloaded mb3-setup-consumer- and tried to install.
It gets to the point of asking for Language.  I have MWB showing as an icon  on the taskbar. If I hover over it, it shows me a small screen image with the MWB logo.
Checking task manager and I have MWB Setup/Uninstall shown as Not responding. See attached pdf.
I next attempted to uninstall, using Control Panel.  Starts and gets to asking if I want to completely remove.  It then sits there, and if I check Task Manager, Malwarebytes Setup/Uninstall is shown, again, as not responding.
If I now try to run MWB I get an error message. jpg attached
I have attempted to delete MWB completely, but I need permission from Administrators (????????)
I even tried to delete through command prompt, but not allowed.
I have logged a ticket but nobody has come back yet.
Any ideas as to where I go next?
