Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware FREE Version from HERE.

Save it to your Desktop.

 

MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

 

Make sure you are connected to the Internet as normal or via Safemode with Networking.

Double-click to execute the installation. Accept the terms, and allow MBAM to install to the default location in your Program Files.

 

Please update the database by clicking on the Update Now button as shown below.

Following the update, click on the large blue Scan Now button to begin the Threat Scan.
If Malware or Potentially Unwanted Programs are found you will receive a Prompt so that you can decide what you want to do. We suggest "Quarantine". Click the button: Apply All Actions.

 

After scanning, click on Save Results to copy the report to your clipboard if you have been requested to post the results on a help forum.

Click Finish to close the scan.

 

Notes:

 

-- If you lose the Clipboard copy and need to retrieve the log it can be found by opening Malwarebytes and clicking on History> Application Logs with the date of the scan. Simply double-click on that in order to see the options for Copying to Clipboard or to Export to a .txt file (Notepad). etc.. The .txt file can be saved and posted when you are ready.

 

-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process.
Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately.
Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

 

-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine.
As advised above, if you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

 

-- If you need to re-install MBAM but encounter issue in re-installing, try using the MBAM Cleanup Utility by downloading it from HERE or HERE.
