Show in Security?

Recommended Posts

I have Malwarebytes Premium install on my PC. I also have Microsoft Defender. I turned off MS Defender. In control panel under System and Maintenance> Security, I show that MS Defender is off. It does not show Malwarebytes is protecting my PC.

I think it should say that Malwarebytes is protecting my PC. Am I right or wrong?

Hello and Welcome!

If you are using version 1.x or 2.x, Malwarebytes will not show that its protecting your computer in the security section of Windows.

That being said, there is a new version of Malwarebytes coming as mentioned in the announcement HERE Titled Announcing Beta of Malwarebytes 3.0, a Next-Generation Antivirus Replacement which most likely will be updating and showing in the security section.

MBAM Premium v1 and v2 is not an antivirus application so it will not register itself in the Windows Security Center.  The Premium version is always on and performs updates and scans according to what you have in your scheduler.

The new version will have more bells and whistles and can replace your AV according to the post I provided above.
