  3. I have had one instance of Microsoft Publisher hanging when starting it from an entry in its jump-list. Publisher starts but hangs trying to open the file. Had to force close it. Publisher version is 16.0.4498.1000 x32. Unfortunately I did a clean reinstall of Malwarebytes and lost the logs for that event.
  4. Are the errors in the attached logs of any concern? MBAMSERVICE.zip
  5. Thanks 1PW, I should have put it there instead of this forum.
  6. First of all, have you installed the latest beta version? A workaround for this issue is : Malwarebytes > Settings > Application > set Windows Action Centre to "Never register Malwarebytes in the Windows Action Centre" Restart and check that Windows Defender is OK Malwarebytes should not cause Defender to turn off. Staff may request further info about your system.
  7. When I turn a protection layer on, it says "Starting" But when I turn a layer off there is no indication acknowledging the switch. Turning off Web protection takes around 10 seconds before the switch goes off. Turning off all four layers at once takes about 18 seconds. I suggest that the protection layer switches should say "Stopping" during this period so we know something is happening.
  8. Installed over the top of previous beta. Lower controls on UI partially hidden on many screens Maximise > Minimise Malwarebytes UI fixed it.
  9. @ Super Dave Yes, I was surprised also.
  10. @galileo I have had two periodic unexplained issues. They are BSOD, and Ethernet adaptor failure on wakeup from Sleep. I haven't mentioned these to this point because I need more determine what causes them. I am currently running with MB3 RTP off and so far haven't experienced either issue, but early days yet.
  11. @galileo The profile corruption is apparently rare, although there may be users out there experiencing it who don't realise that MB is causing it. It happens on Windows 10 x 64, x32 and Windows 7. I understand each computer is different, but MB should not interfere with basic Windows functions like user profiles.
  12. x64 - that is very interesting. All I can add is that on three Windows 10 computers, I never had this user profile corruption with Malwarebytes 2. But after installing MB3, it starts happening on all three computers. I didn't try logout/login, I always recovered but restarting.
  13. I have fiddled with this setting some time ago with no luck. You might restart a few times and it seems fine, then try a few hours later and it happens again. Tricky to pin down.
  14. Yes, it is has been known about since beta testing but not listed as a known issue, so who knows when it will be fixed. The fact that it happens is a worry though. I understand that it is a difficult issue to track down. I am reluctantly using Malwarebytes 3 just as a secondary scanner at present, not starting with Windows.
