Anti-Malware starts with windows anyway

Recommended Posts

I have installed Anti-Malware Premium version (abonnement 3 PCs 1 year) under Windows 8.1 64-bit , but working whith USB-devices I must close MBAM to remove the USB device. Therefore sometimes I want to start Windows without starting MBAM.

I've unchecked the “Start with Windows” option in the task bar's notification area and “Windows start” option in ”MBAM Advanced Settings”), but MBAM starts with Windows anyway.

I have tried “autoruns.exe” without success (no old registry entries found).

Also I do’nt found a newer version of MBAM.


Please, is there some problem-solving ?

TMALSS It is a known behavior in version 2.0 PREMIUM, and it relates to the SCHEDULER for users with scheduled tasks (update checks and/or scans).

The developers have mentioned that this behavior will be changed in a future release, so that NO MBAM services will start with Windows, if the user configures MBAM not to start with Windows.

We do not know the ETA for that change.


OTOH, configuring MBAM Premium NOT to start with Windows reduces one's real-time protection.

So, the default setting, with "Start with Windows" ENABLED, is the recommended configuration.
