Real time protection will not start

Recommended Posts



I'm running Premium, properly activated. I was notified of a new version today and installed it, then noticed real time protection was not running. I've checked the advanced settings and it is checked on (see attach)


I then ran the MBam Clean procedure and re-installed MBam, still with the same result after activating Premium again.


I've run the procedure now with Farbar and attached the logs for a first-time post as requested.


Can you assist?

My experience similar to ColeB's. Clean x 2 and install from MWB servers did not improve things. Everything seems to have proceeded normally, except that real time protection just will not activate, according to the dashboard. Attached is the extra file requested in ColeB's thread


What to do next? I don't think I have those extra issues in ColeB's thread, and I'm wary of trying solutions designed for another machine.

Hello GeoffW1:

Although it was no bother, we would rather read logs produced in a text file (.txt) format and not XML which is not so human readable. No worries this time. :)

  • Please read the following and individually attach the 3 requested logs in a reply to this thread: Diagnostic Logs.
  • The 3 files, from Step 1, to be individually attached from your desktop are: CheckResults.txt, FRST.txt and Addition.txt. Please do not Copy and Paste them into a reply.
Thank You. :)

An update,


Malwarebytes has come good, and real time protection is now running OK. The cause was stupid me.


I had been doing all the above from a limited user account. The various processes including Mbam installation had been asking me for an admin password as expected, and so I thought nothing more of that.


The penny finally dropped and I did the whole Clean x 2 and reinstall from the Admin account, and of course real time protection was OK! Duh! I tried it a few times to make sure, signed out of Admin and into an everyday limited identity, and it was still OK.


Please mark as closed


Sorry to be a pest
