    Try running the Malwarebytes - Clean tool (AKA: MB-Clean). It supposedly removes all traces of Malwarebytes allowing a fresh install. You can download it from here (2nd post):

    Hi.
    Please describe the issue you were having which caused you to uninstall MBAM? Do you suspect an infection? Is there an AV on the system? What else have you run, if anything?

    Since last Tuesdays updates it all looked okay.
    But yesterday I failed to open the MB, Not saying its the latest update is to blame.
    Done nothing else just tried to uninstall and reinstall to see what the fault was. I used the revo uninstaller to get rid of the MB , But it keeps showing up in the revo after uninstall and reboot.
    Have run the MB cleaner with no luck that box appears on screen with error. That's about it.What I've done and of course did the log files you req. Just failed to delete the MB completely.
    Many thanks.

    Did you try right-clicking the tool and selecting Run as Administrator?
    Can you try running the removal tool while booted into safe mode?

    So, the tool didn't work when run as Administrator, and it also didn't work when run in safe mode?
