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.

    Thank you for everything you've done for me in the past years. I'm sorry that games require much more than you're capable of, but you'll never be forgotten as my first personal computer <3

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.
