I would suggest ( if at all possible) start each day with a new Windows start. Some weird things can happen ( or make them more possible) if we continue to have our computer go to sleep mode or hibernate mode each night.

It is a good practice to shutdown Windows at end of each day.

Now then, this box has Defender PRO which has its own firewall.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware works well and should run alongside antivirus software without conflicts. In some rare instances, exclusions may need to be set for your specific antivirus product to achieve the best possible system performance.

I suggest putting in trust settings in your antivirus, as follows:

Please "put as Trusted" (i.e., put Trust settings) for the following MBAM exe files within your Antivirus Software whitelist :

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in "Windows Firewall" you'll need to exclude them from it as well

For 32-bit Windows Vista or Windows 7 or Windows XP:

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamdor.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbampt.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamscheduler.exe

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7 or Windows 8:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamdor.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbampt.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamscheduler.exe

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude MBAM.EXE and MBAMSERVICE.EXE from it as well

Note: Once that's done, please make sure that if either of those programs has any sort of web filter, that you add the following as a trusted site:


Check your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security application to see if you can add exclusions for specific applications/files to ignore.

You may need to contact their technical support or check their support website for instructions.

You will need to set your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security to ignore/exclude the files I listed above.

If you uninstalled the Defender PRO then there is no need to do anything in Windows firewall.


Please do a Start >> Logoff >> Restart so that we have a fresh new start.


Then start the Anti-Malware and on the Dashaboard screen, press the Update Now link.

Let me know all that happens.
