This post will explain how to use Chameleon to install, start, or update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware when it has been blocked by an infection. The program will kill all malicious processes and then start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, allowing you to remove all malware.
1. Please open your Start Menu and navigate to the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder
2. Open the Tools folder and then open the Help File titled "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Chameleon"
3. A page just like below will appear on your screen. Follow the instructions to get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware running.
If the Chameleon help file will not open for any reason, you may alternatively navigate to your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program folder (usually under C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86)) and open the Chameleon folder.
Once there, you may double-click on any of the files within that folder except mbam-killer.exe in order to attempt to launch Chameleon.
This can also be done through the Windows Task Manager. To do so, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc on your keyboard. Once the Task Manager opens, click on File at the top and choose New Task (Run). In the "Create New Task" box, click on the Browse button. In the window that opens, navigate to the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program folder (usually under C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86)) and open the Chameleon folder.
Once there, click on the drop-down menu that says Programs and choose All files.
You may double-click on any of the files within that folder except mbam-killer.exe and click on OK in order to attempt to launch Chameleon.
