I figured out the Malwarebytes one. In the package's xml I had it listed as:

path="Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware version %version%"

when after double checking it doesn't have the ' behind Malwarebytes. So it should read:

path="Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version %version%"

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
