v2.2.0.1024 Windows 7 SP1 x64

Recommended Posts

Two issues:


I cannot see the malwarebytes logo in my system tray, but I do see mbam.exe in process explorer.


When I try to delete or move the MBAM shortcut on my desktop, it asks for admin permissions and makes sure I want to delete the file in E:\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, not on my desktop.


All of this happened after running the MBAM installer for then restarting.

Problem #1: Don't know your OS version, but Check to make sure the system tray icon is not hidden (Vista and above).
Problem #2: Make sure Self Protection is disabled (GUI > Settings > Advanced Settings > Un-tick the box for "Enable Self Protection Module").
If those steps and rebooting the computer do not resolve your issues:

Please let us know how it goes.

Thank you for the help! Fixed both issues!




Issue 1: I restarted and the icon started to appear again.


Issue 2: Disabled self protection, restarted, deleted shortcut, enabled self protection, restarted.


P.S. I wanted to delete the shortcut so I could move it to a different location on my computer, so it would be in my Apps/Security folder.
