    **FIXED!** I have Malwarebytes installed on my phone, I'm pretty sure its seriously malfunctioning, I get several messages saying "Unfortunately Malwarebytes has stopped working and needs to close" per day. I can't remove it from the APP MANAGER under the settings menu, both the FORCE STOP and UNINSTALL buttons can't be selected. Any help appreciated! The phone is a Galaxy Alpha.

    THE FIX: If anyone else has this problem go to SETTINGS > SECURITY > DEVICE ADMINISTRATORS > and deselect the app.

    Yes, if you have any app that wasn't pre-installed but you can't uninstall it then checking it is not set as a device administrator is always a good thing to try. For a non-system app it should the only reason you would not be able to uninstall it.
