Malwarebytes refuses to uninstall and I cannot install a new version.

Recommended Posts

Windows 10 here, it wouldn't open. I've tried fully disabling my TinyWall, same thing, I don't know what causes this. Any ideas?

I've tried reinstalling and I noticed services.msc does not show Malwarebyte's service in there.

It wouldn't uninstall, it's just stuck on uninstalling. I tried opening mbuns.exe, same thing. Mbam-clean does nothing but reboot my computer.

I've also tried the support tool, when I click "clean" it just runs mbun.exe and I get the same stuck "uninstalling" white window there:
