Hey. So I recently installed a software which came with a patch file which was not what it should have been. Running that patch file didn't do anything but later I realised that my Windows Defender is disabled automatically. When I checked the Control Panel, I found out that the Virus Protection Part of it is completely gone. It's not there at all (image attached below). So, I tried a few methods from the internet like:- 1. Downloaded and ran the windefend.reg file. (This gave me an error saying I don't have permission.) 2. Ran the Malwarebytes scan twice but didn't find anything. 3. Did the same thing in Safe Mode, still couldn't find anything. I have also run the FRST Scan which I saw a lot of people run and send the logs for analysing the issue. So I did the same thing and I have attached the FRST.txt and Addition.txt below for reference. Can someone please help me cuz I don't have any other Antivirus Softwares installed as Windows Defender is good enough for that purpose and I don't need to expose my PC to any more threats while the service is down. Thank you. FRST.txt Addition.txt
Hello, So I just bought malwarebytes premium recently and I think it may have taken over my admin rights (I've always been the admin and now I am told I dont have access) and be slowing down my computer. It also will not open on the PC. It just says it is already running. I also cannot open any other windows or the search bar. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you! Best, Shek
Hi, Is there any way to update MalwareBytes when you as a user are not local administrator and UAC is turned on? In my company the majority of the users are not local admin (and UAC is turned on on their computers). They keep getting this windows that says Update available but the can only click "Later" because if they click "Update" they are told that they need local admin rights. Please advise!
