    • Malwarebytes works independent of other antivirus software, so you do not need to uninstall or alter any current software on your machine. 
    • After installation, Malwarebytes will try to contact the update servers and install the latest version and anti-malware definitions. Please allow this download to happen so that you are scanning with the latest information.
    • After update, we recommend running a full scan on your system to ensure you are in a secure state. 
    • Once you finish a full scan, Malwarebytes will continue to run in the background monitoring for threats to your system.
