Known Issues for Malwarebytes version 3.0.6

Last updated February 3, 2017

  • If you are running an earlier Malwarebytes version, and your upgrade to Malwarebytes 3.0.6 fails for any reason, simply uninstall the earlier version and then reinstall new version.
  • If mbae64.sys errors during installation, and sometimes, even a clean install won't remove it, you have in such case to use a FRST script to remove the Self-protection service and driver. Or they can be deleted both in Safe Mode. 
  • Under certain circumstances Web or Exploit protection will not start  for some systems.
  • There is a compatibility issue with Malwarebytes 3.0.6 and F-Secure Deepfreeze (either enable compatibility mode, or add Malwarebytes folders to F-Secure exclusion list)
  • There is an issue with imaging programs (such as Macrium Reflect) where large artifact files are left System Volume Information file if a backup is created with anti-ransomware protection enabled.
  • There is a conflict with BitDefender 2017 safe pay plugin.
  • Enhancements continue to be made to overall Memory and CPU usage and will be released subsequently.
  • For computers left idle in certain circumstances, scans can appear to be stuck on Heuristics Analysis when it has actually finished (Open and close the GUI for workaround).
  • If WMI services are off or disabled, the user will see a “failure to connect to service” error after installing.
  • In Spanish and some other few languages the user will not be able to edit or add a scheduled scan.
  • New scans don't reset "Threats Quarantined" counter on Scan Summary page.
  • When upgrading from 2.2.1 Managed Applications (Anti-Exploit) settings are not carried over but instead all Advanced Settings will be reset to the current defaults.
  • Any User Access Policy created in MBAM 2.x is not migrated when upgrading from MBAM 2.x to Malwarebytes 3.0; a new policy will have to be created.
