Malware Bytes not starting with Windows

Recommended Posts

I have MalwareBytes installed on a Windows 7 platform, but I have to manually launch it everytime I boot the computer, it won't start automatically like it should.


I went to the Advanced settings tab and made sure the check box was set to Start Malware bytes with Windows, and I also enabled the self protection settings. Still won't start.


I ran Avast and it found MoboGenie on this computer, which MalwareBytes did not detect when I ran a scan. Could MoboGenie have infected Malwarebytes?


Any idea what I need to do to get Malwarebytes to start like it should when I boot the machine?

I have a PC with the MoboGenie virus/malware on it. Malwarebytes could not detect it for some reason. I removed most of it with Avast, but I'm not sure if I successfully got all traces of it off. Is there some way I can verify that it is clean?
