Malwarebytes blocking bittorrent

Recommended Posts

I recently downloaded a free trial of mbam pro in order to do some cleanup on my pc. It had been a while and I knew that it was time for a virus scan. While active, mbam would display messages about blocking particular ip's which were in use by bittorrent. After my viruses had been cleared, i figured i would remove mbam and just download a standard version later. However, after removing it, I still can't download any torrents. I was wondering if there might be any residual files (registry files or something arbitrary) that might need to be deleted in order to get bittorrent working again. If there is anything you guys could suggest, please do, cuz I needs my torrentzzzz, thanks lol.

Hello and :welcome:


Malwarebytes does not stop bittorrent files from downloading, it will however block some connections if they are known to be hosted on a site that has or spreads malware.  You can read through this KB article that will explain it better HERE.  That being said, if you want to uninstall Malwarebytes completely just follow the instructions below.


  • Removal Only
  • Please download mbam-clean.exe from here to your desktop and save it.
  • Please close all open applications and temporarily shutdown your antivirus to avoid any conflicts when running the tool.
  • Locate the file mbam-clean.exe and double-click to run it and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • It will ask to restart your computer, please allow it to do so very important
  • Make sure you have re-enabled your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications after the restart
