          You will probably still be able to download in 'Safe Mode with Networking" reached by tapping F8 repeatedly while booting up, usually the second item on the ensuing menu.

              Malwarebytes is an excellent tool and it can be downloaded, installed and updated in 'Safe Mode with Networking' if necessary, if it's not possible to do it in regular mode.

               

              Make sure it's the free version and update it before running.
