Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware screwed up my system


Recommended Posts

I have installed Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware beta, and regretted it immediately. I have an Administrator account (Windows 7 x64 Ultimate), which I only use when I fiddle with something. I also have a user account, which does not have administrator rights, and which I always use when I want to do some work. Both are password protected (both different passwords).
After installing MBAR my user account got screwed up, and I was left with only the Administrator account. Fortunately I had a backup image of the system partition, which got me out of trouble again.
It seems this program is far from ready for prime time.

I have seen Betas and their problems before, but this is by far the worst I have ever seen.


What puzzles me, with all the problems reported here, I see no reaction from Malwarebytes!

Hello yetisouth:


Please create the following files for developer analysis:
Create a ZIP file of the directory C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware\.
Create another ZIP file of the directory C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\logs\.

Please attach the above zipped files to your next reply.


Thank you

Im sorry that this issue has occurred for you, but unfortunately we cannot reproduce or look into this issue much without the logs. Thanks for your feedback though and please remember when dealing with BETA products to use them in a non production environment as stated above.
