Malwarebytes freezing Windows Machine

Recommended Posts

For about 4 months my machine had been freezing and BSODing. I have now finally found a solution that works, now tested for a month. Hurrah!
Thank gawd because I was going to replace my PSU and some stage out of desperation.

Disable Malicious website protection in Malwarebytes. Job done!!


Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.
Yes I've reinstalled it.
I've tried it on a clean/fresh OS same issue.
I am running Bitdefender 2016.
Most of my browsing is done in 64 bit Chrome.
Windows event viewer logs weren't of any use.

There is a known issue with the current builds of Bitdefender and Malwarebytes, that Bitdefender is conceding is "their" issue.  I have had no issues since unchecking the Firewall block port scans on network, as Bitdefender recommends.  See the threads here, and here.

I have my Malicous Website Protection enabled and I am not experiencing any issues.  Hopefully Bitdefender will come up with a cure in their next version.

Have a great day.
