  1. Installing Malwarebytes v4.0.4 generates and error during installation with the DDA driver. It suggests rootkit issue and recommends a reboot to complete installation. The computer will not boot without a restore. I believe Malwarebytes is incompatible with the Surface Pro X device and the Microsoft SQ1 processor. Can anyone confirm this?
  2. Ok so this issue has been running for a while and each time we've not found a reason as to why. sometimes soon after Startup, Malwarebytes will pop up with this error message. "Malwarebytes is unable to load the Anti-Rootkit DDA Driver" it then requests a restart, runs a threat scan and... were clean, this wouldn't be a problem if not for the fact that it's happening more oftern. the system this keeps happening on dose not go to new site, has been clean for years, and every virus scan we do comes back clean. at this stage i wounder if it needs a freash install of malwarebytes to sort itself out. will send Malwarebytes Support Tool info once restarted and the threat scan comes back clean.
  3. Hi all Just updated to 3.5.1 and the 'scan with malwarebytes' is missing from the context menu. This has happened before and has always been easily fixed by either re-starting malwarebytes or re-starting windows. Since the update to 3.5.1 however none of these work. It's a small thing but just wanted to add it here.
  4. I've been running Malwarebytes 3.5 Beta since its release and now updated to 3.5.1 and all seems fine. I don't think the option was there before, but it's nice to see English UK offered as an installation language which means we Brits get the date format we expect. As I reported in the Beta forum, the intermittent problem I'd been experiencing of the DDA drivers not loading correctly in Windows 7 has not shown up in 3.5 Beta and I presume that'll be the case with 3.5.1.

  5. Hello there, my situation is very tough from my point of view. Im using Windows XP SP3 build 2600, everything working normally. But today my computer has stopped working almost completely and won't start in normal mode, just like if something damaged my HDD, went on safe-mode and then I remembered I had my very old OS system, wanted to make a recovery but then the blue screen would come up, I discarded that possibility totally. After that I tried MBAM with chameleon but to my surprise, the DDA driver couldn't be installed!, as far as I know the DDA driver should be working perfectly on safe-mode, then I realized that the main problem wasn't a boot problem, it was a rootkit, OKAY NOW you barely know my situation, I tried MBAR but the driver won't install due to the rootkit, I tried several times getting chameleon executed first, then MBAR but nothing. You could be thinking that I have to reboot and let the driver install normally... but wait!, I am on safe mode and I can't go on Normal mode due to the rootkit! Safe mode will just delete any scheduled operations no matter what program schedules it. Maybe I'm skipping something important here or misunderstanding how safe-mode works, or even a bad configuration (I don't think so, I've been using MB products from a very long time now), but what matters now is that I need the driver installed under these circumstances, formatting is not an option, I have a ton of important files and backing them up its unreal. I need help. Thanks for reading guys I'm relying on you!, Zantetsuken.
  6. I am a Premium User (from version 1), installed the latest version last night and get this error screen: http://i61.tinypic.com/nwn86x.png Malwarebytes Anti-Malware --------------------------- Malwarebytes was unable to load the Anti-Rootkit DDA Driver, this error may be caused by rootkit activity. Do you want to reboot the system and attempt to install the Driver? --------------------------- (If you don't choose to reboot, Anti-Rootkit scanning will be disabled for this session). Rebooted and it did not say it again, but I have no way (or do not know the way) to check if it is actually operational. The message came up only once (on new install/upgrade). I re-created the message by uninstalling Malwarebytes, and re-installing it. The message comes up again, but I will guess on reboot, it will not mention again, and I still do not know how to check if it is installed. Any ideas?
  7. I tried to run a Scan using mbar BETA, 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
