Now, I am not trying to insult your intelligence in any way. I'm just going with the info you stated about not knowing anything about computers.

The above links, may not come out as a link you just click on, and it takes you to that website. In this case, you need to copy and paste the link into your address bar.

Put your mouse cursor right before the -> h, of http:
Hold the Left mouse button down, and slide the mouse cursor across the entire link, until you are at the last letter. (->l of html)
The entire link should be highlighted in blue.
Now hold the CTRL key down on the keyboard, and at the SAME time press the -> C key.

Go up your address bar where you see http://www, and put your mouse cursor at the end of the address, that's in there. Click the Left mouse button once. Now hold the CTRL key down, and press the V key. (Paste)
Now just click on the right end of the address bar. (Go)

When you are on the download page for the free version of Malwarebytes, you will see a green square icon that has a V at the top, and a small type of U symbol underneath the U.
-> Download the latest version <- is to the right of this icon. (It's in blue) Click on this. Your download should start automatically, and it will be a small window up to the right.

Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Save. After it is finished downloading, close this page. (Red X)
Go back to your desktop screen. You will see the downloaded file on your desktop. Double-click right on this file, and follow the easy instructions.
