Malwarebytes will not run on start or stay open when run manually, no infection, logs included


Recommended Posts

For the first time, I can't seem to get Malwarebytes to either run or open without going to the folder and activating the executable.  Even when I do that, as soon as I close the window, Malwarebytes shuts down.  If I try to enable the process manually, it stops immediately.

 

This computer is not infected.  It's a new Windows 10 build.  I'm using the free version on this one for simplicity, but I personally own the paid versions of two Malwarebytes programs.

 

I've never had a single issue before.  Indeed, I've always loved the programs, and pretty much use them on everything.

 

I've done all the tests, followed all the procedures on this site, and still have no resolution.

 

Attached are the requested logs.
