However, some users report that sometimes Malwarebytes are difficult to start and cannot be accessed. It is very likely that it is a virus problem in which the malware blocks the execution of the executable antimalware file. So what do we do when we encounter such a problem?
Here are some solutions we can find, be sure to check out:
Solution 1 - Rename the mbam.exe file to explorer.exe
Some users have renamed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Suite by renaming the executable file. You must have administrator privileges to change the name of this file. After starting Malwarebytes, run an analysis and assign the default name to the executable. It should work now.
Solution 2 - Run Malwarebytes Chameleon
If you can not start Malwarebytes, contact Malwarebytes Chameleon. With this built-in utility, you can start malware bytes if the usual problems occur. Usually, you only have to do it once. Once the bytes of the malicious program have eliminated the threats, everything should return to normal.

After successfully removing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from your PC, download and install the latest version. Remember to save your credentials to enable them immediately.
