9. Continue clicking Next the rest of the way through the installation process.
10. When this finishes, MalwareBytes will start automatically. When it does, close the informational pop-up window, and click the Check for updates button in the middle of the MalwareBytes window. You only need to do this if it doesn’t start on its own, which it most likely will.

12. Finally, when the scanning process completes, MalwareBytes will provide you a report of any malicious items it found during the scan process. This window will also let you select what you’d like to do with these items. Lets choose Quarantine/Remove, and click Apply.

You’ll want to update the program at least once a month, and running the system scan every 1-2 weeks will keep your computer clean. If you get stuck, or need any help at all, please reach out!
