Recommended Posts

Hello lazy2 and :welcome:

Let's start here:

Using the native Windows built-in zip utility, please create the following, separate, .zip (not .7z or .rar) archive file for MBARW developer team analysis:


Please attach the .zip archive to your next reply.  Thank you for your beta testing contribution to the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware (MBARW Beta) project and your valued feedback.

Hello lazy2:

I am not altogether certain if MBARW Beta8 can function properly when installed within a system's F:\ partition.

All may be as it should be, but try the following MBARW Beta8 uninstall & re-install procedure to guarantee proper ownerships and integrity:

  1. Delete any and all previous copies of MBARW_Setup.exe and perform a conventional Windows-based uninstall of Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware version followed by a system restart to Windows 10 Normal boot mode.
  2. Then, download a fresh copy of the MBARW_Setup.exe to the system's Administrator desktop only.
  3. Right-click the saved MBARW_Setup.exe file icon and left-click RunAsAdmin.jpg  Run as administrator from the context menu and continue.  <===IMPORTANT!
  4. Upon a successful installation, restart the computer in a conventional manner to the Windows 10 Normal boot mode.
  5. After MBARW Beta8's license activation has completed, check to see if several W10 shutdowns/restarts show if the issue is resolved.

When possible, please reply to this topic with your system's status.  Please also reply with the what partition the "%ProgramData%" directory was assigned to.  Thank you again for your beta testing contribution.
