    Make a full antivirus scan
    Download and make a full scan with malwarebytes
    If negative
    Use the hidden administrator
    Administrator Account

    Where are you downloading too?

    Try a generic folder not in my documents area.

    You tried the adminsrator and did the scans?
    If yes
    Try from another user account, yours could be corrupt.
    Elevated Command Prompt

    Maybe a rogue fake AV like Security Tool installed itself on your computer and you just don't know yet. Those kind of programs stop you from opening programs and downloading things.

    Troubleshoot Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

    Below are some common errors you may run into when attempting to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

    Malwarebytes' setup program closes when you attempt to install it.

    If you attempt to install Malwarebytes' and the setup program automatically closes then there is a good chance that you have an infection that is trying to stop the program from installing. To get around this, try renaming mbam-setup.exe to other names like:

    mbam-setup.com
    iexplore.exe
    explorer.exe
    userinit.exe
    winlogon.exe

    After each rename, try and run the program again. If that does not work, then you may to download and run Rkill to terminate the malware processes that are stopping you.



    Malwarebytes' wont start

    If you attempt to run Malwarebytes' and it does not start then there is a good chance that you have an infection that is trying to stop the program from running. To get around this, try renaming C:\program files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe to other names like:

    mbam.com
    iexplore.exe
    explorer.exe
    userinit.exe
    winlogon.exe

    After each rename, try and run mbam.exe again. If that does not work, then you may to download and run Rkill to terminate the malware processes that are stopping you.
