MBAM doesn't start and won't update or run on Windows 10 Pro

Recommended Posts

My Windows 10 PC received 3 updates this morning: Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3199986), Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1607 (for x64-based Systems) (KB3201860), and Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3197954). After the restart, I noticed that the MalwareBytes icon was missing from the systray. I started it and I get what you see in the image I've uploaded. When I click Update Now, Malwarebytes stops working. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Hello and Welcome to Malwarebytes :)

When upgrading to the latest version of windows 10, that sometimes corrupts the Malwarebytes install.

Let's try this first....

  1. Please follow the steps in this pinned topic to uninstall your current version of MBAM and reinstall the latest build - MBAM Clean Removal Process 2x
  2. If that does not correct the issue, then please read the following and attach to your next reply the 3 requested logs - Diagnostic Logs(the 3 logs are: FRST.txt, Addition.txt and CheckResults.txt)
  3. NOTE: More info about v2.2.1 HERE; User Guide ONLINE; User Guide PDF; FAQ: Common Questions, Issues, and their Solutions

Please let us know how it goes.

Thank You,
