You've probably downloaded the Windows version or the Mac version of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, because there is no release for the iPad. There was a question on the official forums and the developers responded that the operating system running on the iOS is not supported at this time by the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

If I were you I wouldn't worry about malware on iPad since that OS is very secure.

I've downloaded all of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware versions, but I cannot install them. I'm using OS X 10.6.8 and I can't run any of them. Why not? Do you have any suggestions?

Unfortunately, you won't be able to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware until you upgrade your operating system. Snow Leopard is just too old, and the application no longer supports such outdated versions. Additionally, there's also no way for you to download older editions of Malwarebytes and it wouldn't make much sense to do that as being up-to-date with the latest threats is the only way for security tools to effectively protect your Mac.

So, if you want to use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on your Mac, you will need to update to Mac OS X 10.9 or a newer version of Apple's operating system.

What is the appropriate version of Malwarebytes anti-Malware for Mac running
OSX v10.5.8? Your immediate response would be greatly appreciated.

For Malwarebytes AntiMalware to be efficient, it needs to run on a version of Mac OSX newer than 10.5.8. The latest version available on the developer's website is listed to be compatible with Mac OSX 10.9 or higher. There is also no way to download an older version and even if it was, it won't provide full protection.

The first version available for installation is and was released back in 2015, but I doubt it will run on 10.5.8. That is an unsupported operating system.
