Can't open Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Sorry, think I posted this in the wrong place... probably should have gone here...

Hoping that someone can give me some help with this. I've had Malwarebytes installed on my PC for a while, and have never had issues. Today, I started my PC and after a few minutes, noticed that suddenly I was getting a bunch of pop-ups advertising "registry defender" and some other spyware removal products... so I automatically assume they are spyware of course. Click on malwarebytes - and nothing happens. Click again - nothing.

Decided to download the new version and try again. New version downloads and installs, but when I click on it - nothing.

Saw that there was a forum here, so tried to register... the registration page wouldn't even load all the way. Right now I'm using safe mode and it's the only way that I could register to even post here. Still can't run malwarebytes though.

Any ideas? Any help?

Thanks in advance.
