It's the Start Menu folder: Spybot - Search & Destroy\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware I'm referring to

O the Start Menu isn;t important. That's just where in the Programs list off the Start Menu it dumps an icon

Ok back here again to try installing it. I just kept clicking next and then a malware box showed up on the desk top.
A screen popped in and asked what to scan so I pressed full scan c, d, e, I see it is scanning or doing something now.
Hopefully I'm still on the air after it is completed and I don't go and press something I'm not suppose to cause my early demise.

Malware bytes is pretty safe. Just remove any objects it lists as spyware and allow it to reboot your computer if needed to complete removal

It is still running and it's been one hour and 54 minutes. Is that normally how long it takes to run?

I normally do a quick scan unless I really think it is missing something. It also helps if you delete your temp. Internet files before running it.

I did a full scan. Is a quick scan satisfactory from now on?
I don't know how or what the temp. internet files are so can't monkey with them.
