After you have downloaded and set it up you can start using malware-bytes it will ask if you would like to update, go ahead and do this before running it.
You can run Malwarebytes in regular mode but in safe-mode it will work a lot better. To get into safe-mode, restart the computer, hold down the F8 key you can do this on some computers, however if this doesn’t work just hit the F-8 key repeatedly. until the screen turns black. You will see a line of text, (these are drivers: little programs that run your mouse, keyboard etc..) you have several choices before you, I normally use Safemode with Networking, this way you always have the ability to update MalwareBytes. Make sure to use the Administrator account once in Safe-mode.
To get into Safemode For Windows 8, go to https://infotechcomputing.wordpress.com/2013/12/30/windows-8-accessing-safe-mode/
Click on malware-bytes, once the window opens up, you will have three options under the scan tab: Threat, Custom and Hyper. Under Custom you will have the option of choosing which folders or threats you would like for it to find.
when it is finished you should see a small banner
When this banner pops up at the bottom will be the words” click here to view details.”
And the above window will appear, click on the tab “Apply Actions”
Here you have the option of viewing the log, listing what was found on your computer. To get back to the main window, click on the tab”Main Menu” at the bottom.
Now, your computer should be safe until the next time, you inadvertently download Malware.
