I've been running Malwarebytes 3.4.4 without problem since its release until I got the "unable to load DDA driver" message again today with the associated advice to reboot the computer and run an scan with rootkits scan enabled. I know you are aware of this problem and are hoping to have a fix soon, but I would like to add that I think it's overkill that Malwarebytes then runs a full threat scan with rootkit scan enabled on reboot and there seems to no way to cancel this scan without Malwarebytes trying to do it again on the next reboot. Running a Malwarebytes scan at boot really slows down my low spec laptop and I would rather not do it unnecessarily when I know I don't have a rootkit problem. I attach the required logs in case they are of interest but I don't expect them to tell you anything new. I thought I'd use the advanced options in the new Malwarebytes Support Tool to gather the info just to try it out - seems like a big step forward.

I tried to run a Scan using mbar BETA 1.06.0.1003, on Win8 x64 but received the "Could not load DDA driver" message.(Pic Below) It says that the "DDA driver was not installed which may be caused by rootkit activity." Then it asks(Yes/No) if I want to reboot to install the DDA driver, and says scan will continue after reboot. I don't believe there are any rootkits installed on this laptop. There is no way I'd install this DDA driver, until I find out what it is and why it's needed? Is the DDA driver supposed to be installed by default when I installed Win8? Thanks in advance, Don
