So it installed fine, but when I try to run it regularly, wine says the program (in identified) has encountered a serious problem Then after a few seconds it opens another window with ma'am.exe instead of (unidentified). Why does this happen?
Something else suspicious:

I'd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86), there is a folder named SafeSavings. After rmdiring it, even as root, it reappears.

Other answer:

Mikhail:
Wine is only a Windows Emulator. It's NOT actually running windows at all, and all sorts of machine level functions aren't supported. So of course an AV program that's looking for those low level functions to hook into is going to crash.

It's also pointless as you are in a Linux environment. Malware Bytes wont do anything useful even if you could get it to run.

Uninstall wine, remove the directory to be 100% sure, and reinstall it.

why are you running malwarebytes in wine? there's nothing to be accomplished by doing so even if it works windows viruses (which is all malwarebytes is capable of looking for) cannot infect linux systems so there's nothing to worry about and if you somehow got a virus in wine you deserve a medal
Bell:
Wine only runs on Linux, and Linux by itself is immune to Windows Virii.

So, I have to ask:

Why are you trying to run Malware Bytes on a Linux OS???

Joe:
Wine?

You're trying to run MalwareBytes on a Linux distribution?

I can't imagine how that could ever be made to work. What are you trying to accomplish?

EDIT:

OK; seeing your comments…

If there's something messing you up, it's got to be in the .wine folder, off of your home directory. (~/.wine)

You could manually look around, or trash the whole .wine thing, and start over.
