MBAM Protection Partially Enabled

Recommended Posts


I have been using Malwarebytes for a few years now, with no problems.  I recently purchased a Pro version and installed on my Mom's Win Vista machine. 

My problem is that Protection is only partially enabled.  I have uninstalled a couple of times using the DVD, and the problem continues.  The malicious website blocking is the module of Protection that will not enable.    Please respond with helpful information.

Hi, Chas07:




Sorry you are having trouble fully activating the realtime protection modules of MBAM PRO.

You mention that you have reinstalled from the "DVD" -- the program version on the disk might be older (it's generally suggested to install from a fresh download of the program), and it's possible that you might not have used the cleanup utility to uninstall?


So, assuming a reboot did not resolve the issue, let's try this first -- please use Method 1 here: MBAM Clean Removal Process.

(Be sure to reboot when asked, after running mbam-clean.)


Then, please post back and let us know if that resolved your issue.

If not, we'll go from there.

I followed your instructions and used the removal tool.  I also disabled anti-virus and downloaded the Malwarebytes program and installed.  The results of this did not resolve my issue.  The Malicious Website Module did not enable.  Please send further helpful information.  Thanks in advance for your response.
