Windows 7 and MalwareBytes scheduler issue?

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a new HP laptop with Windows 7 64 bit. I've installed and registered Malwarebytes, and have added an update line and a schedule line, but MalwareBytes isn't doing my scheduled scans and updates. Additioinally, each time I click on the icon to modify MB, WIndows gives me an Account Control Cnter message regarding whether I want to allow MB to make changes to the system .... very annoying.

I am also running Norton 360, v6.1 and Regcure.

Any ideas?

Hello pingber and :welcome:

Make sure Malwarebytes was/is installed while logged in as an admin, then configure the scheduler according to the instructions below.

How To Use The New Scheduler

Once you register your full version make sure you schedule your program for automatic updates and scans.....

Have a look at the links below for instructions......

How To Use The New Scheduler (Applicable To Versions 1.51 and above Only)

This video has not been updated yet but it gives you a general idea....

Also to ensure there are no conflicts with Norton 360 (not sure on your version) you may have to enter exceptions as outlined in our FAQ --> Right HERE

As for Malwarebytes asking for permissions when you double click the icon, that is by design and its due to Windows UAC, the permission needs to be granted in case an infection is found it can remove it.
