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.
