Hello, Could you help me with my problem ? I installed a program that turned out to be a malware, installed several bad programs on my computer. I could delete them all with Malwarebytes but it changed something in the IT access and now my windows defender "virus & thread protection" and "protection updates" won't be enabled now because : Your IT administrator has limited access to some area of this app, and the item you tried to access is not available. Contact IT helpdesk for more information. It is my personal computer and it is not normal that there is these restrictions, I'm pretty sure it is because of this bad program. I've tried changing the registry for windows defender but won't work still. Would do have a solution please ?? Thanks a lot
Hi - is it possible to run Windows Defender alongside Malwarebytes? Since I installed Malwarebytes, Defender will not start.
Hello. I was trying to install Malwarebytes but it seems whatever I've caught is blocking me from installing it since I get a message that the Admin has blocked it, but I am the only Admin. I also noticed a new process in my Task Manager that keeps popping up every one in a while even when I delete it, and a file in my Windows folder that also keep re-appearing when I delete it in safemode. My browser (firefox) is now riddled with ads that don't get blocked by uBlock Origin, and I notice that when I click on links sometimes they get parsed through some website. I also know I am infected because Windows Defender went ballistic with trying to block and quarantine files before finally collapsing, and now it won't turn back on again. Any recommendations?
I have always had Malwarebytes and Windows Defender running together with no problems. After the Fall Update, Defender keeps shutting down and will not let me turn it back on because there is already another antivirus program monitoring the system (I assume it is Malwarebytes). I uninstalled MWB and reinstalled it and it worked for a while, then shut down Defender again. I tried looking in Settings to allow both to run but cannot find anything relevant. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
