  1. I have two life-time licenses (both Win 10). I've had them installed on the same two machines for several years. About 2 weeks ago, my laptop started prompting me for my admin password on every boot. The UAC screen says that Malwarebytes is attempting to modify my system. I don't think I've changed any Malwarebytes settings in the last several months. I have both of my systems set to auto login to a user (not admin) account without a password. Only the laptop is forcing me to enter my admin password at every boot. How can I fix my laptop so that it can complete the boot process without a UAC prompt for an admin PW?
  2. Hello Firstly, I have been using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for a few months now and I am very happy with the product, so I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the Malwarebytes staff for contributing to producing such a fantastic product. However, I do have some suggestions to make the product better, I would be extremely grateful if these changes were implemented into your next product version: 1. Can the User Account Control (UAC) warning be removed/skipped? (Like CCleaner does) I find it quite annoying, especially as I trust Malwarebytes with my PC, so I don't want to keep pressing 'Yes' every single time I want to use it. Also, as far as I'm aware, you cannot add UAC exceptions in Windows 8; otherwise I would've just done that. 2. Could you make the 'Database is outdated' message appear, even when you scan a file/folder with Malwarebytes? At the moment, it only comes up when you open the application directly. So, if you want to scan just the odd file every now and again which you've just downloaded to double-check it's clean, you end up scanning with outdated database definitions. Thanks very much, Transformers
  3. 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!
  4. Hi, I have just bought Malwarebytes PRO and there's a little thing that annoys me a lot. Malwarebytes always need the UAC permission to start, event when the Filesystem Protection and Website Blocking are enabled. UAC example (from Wikipedia) when I start Malwarebytes : Why does the program need my "authorization" each time I want to start the scanner? The program ALREADY have the permission, the real-time scan is running... Thanks for your time. AAL.
  5. Hello Malwarebytes forum, I am posting this in regards to a strange occurrence that happened when I went to update Malwarebytes. I opened Malwarebytes to update, and as usual, encountered a UAC prompt, except this time, it claimed that Malwarebytes was unsigned. I allowed it to run anyway and it is acting fine. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this issue. Here's the prompt:
