    Hi, I am trying to uninstall Malware Bytes and to install the new version. When I want to uninstall, I get the message: Messages file "C:\Program Files(x86)\Malware Bytes'Anti-Malware\unins000.msg" is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program.I did buy a new Malware Bytes from their site. But, when I try to install it, it tells me that I have to uninstall first. And when I try that, I get the message above.

    Also check and see if MBAM has an uninstall/cleanup tool like many AV programs do.

    Here's a link to a article Malwarbytes has up. It has a link for their untinstall tool. Download it and restart your pc into Safe Mode. Then run their removal tool and restart your pc. You should then be able to install the new version of Malwarebytes.
