Windows 7: Program help

Program help

I have Malwarebytes on my desktop, but does not show up in 'PROGRAMS' when you click the 'START' on bottom left. Malwarebytes shows up on the 'UNINSTALL or CHANGE a PROGRAM' in the 'CONTROL PANEL'. Any reason it's not there? Might need it someday if a virus blocks it and I would use Chameleon to bring it back to function mode.
Strange...........







Thanks for any help

Hello acme I have had this in the past and also it downloads without the proper icon installed just uninstall and reinstall that usually fixes it - only takes a couple of minutes

Go to start > All Programs. Open the Malwarebytes folder and right click on the program shortcut (not the uninstall). Then 'Pin to Start menu'.

Else you can also find the .exe in the Program files (x86) and send a shortcut to the desktop.

Thanks for the info, I have the Malwarebytes on the desktop and pinned in the bottom pop-up tray, my problem was that Malwarebytes wasn't shownig in the 'ALL PROGRAMS' on the left when you click on the START thingy. But I found an easy way to get the back-up Chameleon for Malwarebytes to work without an uninstall/install.
I just downloaded 'CHAMELEON' (from MalBytes) to a file in DOCUMENTS and I can just go there if I ever need it.
