For more than a week now malware protection in Malwarebytes 3.2.2 keeps turning itself off. When I try to change the setting back to On, it says "Starting..." and then after maybe a second or two switches back to Off (please see screenshot below). On at least one occasion, malware protection was on, but scan for rootkits was off, so apparently it's not just the one setting that changes. I've set the program to run as admin and that solved the issue for a while, but the malware protection setting has turned itself off multiple times since and I still have to reset it manually. Today I am unable to get it to turn back on. In searching for information about the problem, it appears that other people have had the same problem with earlier versions of the software, so presumably this is a known issue that has not yet been (successfully) addressed. Can someone please explain what is causing this and provide a solution that is permanent so that I don't have to fiddle with the settings every day and worry that my computer was infected while protection was turned off? I make a living with my computer, so it's important that it's protected properly. If relevant, the version is 126.96.36.1999, premium edition, component package version 1.0.188, update package version is 1.0.2834. My updates are current as of Sept. 18, 10:09 Pacific time. I am running Windows 8.1. Thank you!
