I need to re-install malwarebytes, but when I do it still doesn't work because some files are not being removed.

What can I do?

EDIT: Soooo nice to have Malwarebytes back! Thanks.

You can install the free version of Revo uninstaller, set Hunter mode to ON, then reinstall malwarebytes. Hunter mode keeps track off all location, both file and registry, where software installs to. So this should give Revo the required information to uninstall correctly and fully using Revo uninstaller's "moderate" mode.
