Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:

I've been trying to get rid of mywebsearch and search-results for over a year. Scans, regedits, etc, etc, etc.
Finally found a site that told me how to do it in 30 seconds.
Go to
about:config
Choose:
I promise...
Type in:
keyword.url
Click the result.
In the window that pops up, change to the search url you prefer, or delete it entirely.
Deleting it entirely, in my case using Firefox, allows a domain name to be typed in the address bar without the .com, etc and will go directly to the website, which I love.

trixie61, thanks for the tip.

Still didn't work for me though (also in Firefox), so I just searched for "search-results" in about:config then right-clicked each of the three results and selected "reset" which set them back to Google search.
