Anti-Ransomware opens up on taskbar in Windows 10 start up


Recommended Posts

How can I turn off the option that make the program open up on each windows start up, and lies itself active on the taskbar? Check my settings in the two attached screenshots, and tell me if there is some other setting I might have missed.

It has no purpose for it to do this anyhow, so I have to close it every time I start up windows.

Hello Freerider and :welcome:

This was still planned, correct and accepted behavior in MBARW Beta7.  As many improvements and fixes have been included with the release of MBARW Beta8 v0.9.17.616, it is strongly recommended this upgrade be made to the system in question.

Rather than a simple re-install of MBARW Beta, please consider a clean install of MBARW Beta8 (v0.9.17.661):

1. Close all open user applications followed by a conventional Windows based uninstall of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware through the Windows system Control Panel.
2. If MBARW Beta7 was uninstalled successfully, the following sub-directories will have been deleted from a typical Windows 10 x64 system:
                                             "%ProgramData%\Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware\"

3. If any of the above directories remain, please delete them manually.  If necessary, any remaining/uninstalled directory must be deleted in the Windows Safe mode.
4. Execute a conventional Windows restart to the Normal Windows boot mode and log-in through an Administrator's account. <===IMPORTANT!
5. Using an Administrator's account only, download a fresh MBARW_Setup.exe file and save to the Administrator's Desktop from the New version - BETA 8 - now available! topic.
6. Right-click the saved MBARW_Setup.exe file and left-click RunAsAdmin.jpg  Run as administrator from the context menu and continue.
7. Upon a successful installation, please restart the computer in a conventional manner to the Windows Normal boot mode.

Please reply to your topic with the status of your reported issue.  Thank you for beta testing MBARW and your valued feedback.
