MBAM Premium doesn't update from a Limited User Account

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

With the product installed and setup with an Admin account it should automatically update and if wanted also scan all silently. Allowing a limited user account to make changes that affect the entire computer is not normally a desired feature. You should be able to install as Admin and setup auto database updates and then it will update for you automatically using the chosen scheduled update period.

Please log on with an Admin account and do the following.




With the new install completed under an Administrator account make sure you activate the program and enable the protection modules.  Then restart the computer and again logon with the same Admin account and go into the "Automated Scheduling" and make sure you have a "Check for Updates" schedule set. (I set mine for every 4 hours)  and a daily scan if wanted.  Then you should be able to log out and log back in with your Limited User account and the updates and scans should still take place under the Admin account rights for the scheduled operations.


Just remember that if you have it set as shown in the image that if a threat is found it will reboot the computer automatically and you won't see or know why it rebooted as it is a silent request. It will also consume CPU and Disk I/O while it's scanning.
