How to completely remove Malwarebytes Antimalware.

How to completely remove Malwarebytes Antimalware.

In this guide I am going to explain how to remove Malwarebytes Anti Malware. The first thing that you will need to do is to download GeekUninstaller. Since you have probably tried to uninstall Malwarebytes via the usual method and were unable to do so.

Once GeekUninstaller is downloaded you will want to move it to your desktop and right click it and run it as admin.
Then scroll down to malware bytes then right click on it and select force removal. Then select yes on the prompt.
Then you may be prompted to remove any remaining files, please do so.

Next step will be to run a batch file to remove any remaining files from malwarebytes.

Open a notepad and copy and paste the following into a notepad. Do not copy the word code!

@echo off
taskkill /IM "explorer.exe" /F
taskkill /IM "mbamtray.exe" /F
taskkill /IM "MBAMService.exe" /F
taskkill /IM "mbam.exe" /F

Once you have this into a notepad, then name it MalwarebytesRemove.bat save it to your desktop. Once you have it saved to your desktop then boot the machine into safe mode then right click and run as administrator. You can also run the batch file in normal mode. Note: The batch file will reboot your machine, so save anything prior to running.

The next step to remove Malwarebytes from your machine is to download and install Unlocker and Everything search engine.

Once you have both installed, then open the everything search engine and type Malwarebytes into the search window. Then you will want to do the following.

Click Edit
Then Select All
Then right click on the blue highlighted text.
Select Unlocker from the context menu.
Under Action Select Delete.
Then Unlock All
You may receive a prompt to delete on reboot.
Select yes.

After that the next to final step to remove Malwarebytes completely from your computer is to download and run the Malwarebytes support tool. Instructions for running the Malwarebytes support tool can be found here.

Once you have ensured that all traces of Malwarebytes are removed from your computer, please download a fresh copy from this link here.

Usually the only way a Malwarebytes install is corrupted is due to malware, if you feel you are still infected with malware then you can create a free account here and start a new thread in our malware forums.
