Windows 7: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware mbamext.dll removal

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware mbamext.dll removal

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware does not seem to work on my windows 7, so I thought I would delete the folder it left behind...

I managed to delete most the files, but there is one left over mbamext.dll it seems to be running ( as windows 7 is telling me ) but its not in the processes and I cant even remove it using any 'hard to remove file deleters' I cant use killprocess in cmd as its not listed in the processes

( to be honest I have not tried safe mode, but I would prefer to do it from my main windows if possible.. as getting to safe mode on my pc requires me to mess with the boot options and I dont like doing that )

has anyone got any other ideas on how to remove it..

thanks

First, I want to challenge your original statement. Better than removing MB, maybe we can fix it? How does it not work?

If you are really intent on removing it, though, we can try a few things. First, download MB again, and install it. Then run the uninstaller it provides.
Hopefully that will work.

dont worry, thanks for your reply though

I was being a twit and did not think to go to their site and see if they have a way to remove their own files, it says there to use fileassassin.. it required a reboot but it worked

it was only the files it left behind I was having issues with, as the program was uninstalled properly, I dont really need it, its just something I had as a just in case measure

thanks again

Hitman Pro vs Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Which one do you guys prefer and why? I've seen some people saying that they have had nasty infections that nothing could get out (Malwarebytes, AVG, MSE, NOD32, etc.) but then when they used Hitman Pro it found the problem and got rid of it.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as standalone
Is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware powerful enough to be the only security application to keep my system safe? I've got the paid version with live protection though and also got Windows Firewall active. Is this safe enough or should I install additional software?
