Windows 7 Malwarebytes Pro updates in non admin account


Recommended Posts

I always run in a non-administer account. I noticed program does not update. Is this normal? Is there a way from the non admin account to access admin account and do updates without having to switch users?

Thanks

You have two options:

  • Use the Scheduler to schedule updates, which will occur automatically regardless of the type of user account that is active
  • Right-click on the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware shortcut in your START menu or on your desktop and choose Run as administrator and provide administrative credentials if required by Windows and then check for updates using the Check for Updates button on the Update tab

Please let us know if there's anything else we can assist you with.

Thanks :)

You may need to set the scheduled update from your admin account (or simply open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as admin as described previously and then add your scheduled update). That's because it will need admin privileges to actually create the scheduled task, however the scheduled update will run under any user account so that's only required when you first create the update (or if you later need to edit it if you wish to make any changes).
