Thanks VoG but I can't download Malware Bytes

I downloaded the program from my laptop and saved it on a USB stick and then installed it on the computer. I couldn't install it from the computer because if couldn't download it. Personal Anti Virus was stopping me.

After running remove whatever it finds - which hopefully should include the Personal Anti-Virus - and then run once more to check that everything comes up clear.

There is a way to download MBAM

Rename MBAM download rabbits foot.exe then download then run it {install}

Install MBAM {rabbits foot.exe and update it,

Then do a quick scan,

If it will not run then do this,


Go to the MBAM program folder here
C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware {double click the folder}

rename mbam.exe to rabbits foot.exe
double click on rabbits foot.exe to start MBAM.
scan.. remove detected items...once clear you can rename the executable file back to mbam.exe

Thanks everyone for your help. The problem is now fixed. I'll tick the 'resolved' box.
Thanks Everyone
