If Malwarebytes Anti-Malware will not open because of an infection, you can use Malwarebytes Chameleon to launch the program.


While some products have trouble running on infected machines, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware now includes our powerful Chameleon tool which has been designed specifically to get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to run when an infection is present.

Unless otherwise required, do not run Malwarebytes Chameleon. Chameleon should only be run when you cannot open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
