What to do when MalwareBytes doesn’t load?

| October 16, 2010 | 2 Comments

While there are many different reasons why the MalwareBytes application may not load once installed, there is one however that you should be aware of, it could be because a malware infection is killing it.

How do you get around this you ask? The first and best solution that that answer is to rename the malwarebytes executable file. If you are not sure how to do this just locate the shortcut to MalwareBytes on your desktop, right click and at the bottom click properties. From the next window that opens go to the bottom and click “Open File Location”. This will take you straight to the exe file. Rename it to something like “myfile.exe” and then double click it.

If all goes well the application should start and then you can start scanning to remove those pesky problems.

Hope this helped someone as I have to use this trick weekly.
