I downloaded and installed Malwarebytes and every time I try to launch the program after installing it, I get the following message:


C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-malware\mbam.exe

An error occurred whilte trying to rename a file in the destination directory:
MoveFile failed; code 5.
Access is denied.

Click Retry to try again, Ignore to skip this file (not recommended), or Abort to cancel installation.

Every time this happens, I have no choice but to abort because Ignore is not recommended and Retry never works.

How do I get it working?

Try this

Uninstall MBAM, reboot your PC

Download it again, and re-install it

Tell me if that works
