  1. Same problem here on two machines. Both run Windows 10, but one is a custom built desktop and the other an Asus laptop. Laptop is using the latest MB version, while the desktop is on 3.0.6. Neither of them will now permit web protection to be enabled nor will a scan actually scan anything (just starts and then dies around the 4 - 10 second mark). On the laptop I have:

    Uninstalled MB.


    Run the MB Clean tool


    Reinstalled MB.


    This does NOT solve the issue (I have now done this three times). I do notice that the MBClean utility doesn't seem able to find the registry components for MB, so on the last attempt I manually went through the registry and deleted all that I could find related to MalwareBytes, but it's possible that I missed something important. However I suspect that nothing I will do can fix this, and that something in the recent Win10 Creators update may have borked MalwareBytes. It seems a lot of people are starting to have this issue suddenly, and it only went live recently... and for me I only noticed it after the Creators Update went live as well.

    Please fix as soon as possible as, even though the software might be doing it's job in general, I still feel vulnerable knowing that something somewhere is not right.

  2. Malwarebytes has started flagging the compiler part of the GameMaker Studio 1.4 game engine as Ransomware, removing it to quarantine. The program is definitely not ransomware and the quarantining of the EXE is causing lost work. I have attached the MBAMSERVICE.LOG log file to this post, and the quarantine log shows:
