Malwarebytes 3 Free, not closing.


Recommended Posts

  • Staff

The UI closes very quickly for me.  What else is running on this machine?

This next scanner will not make any changes to your machine on its own, nor will it divulge any personal information that may compromise your security.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/farbar-recovery-scan-tool/ and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.

**After you click the Download Now 64-bit, or the Download Now 32-bit, another page will open — DO NOT CLICK ANY ADDITIONAL 'download now' buttons, just wait and look toward the bottom of your browser for the option to Run or Save. Click Save.

•Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.

Note: If you are prompted by Windows SmartScreen, click More info followed by Run anyway.

•Click the Scan button.

•When the scan has finished, it will save 2 logs  in the same directory the tool was run from.  Please attach the following logs:

Addition.txt

FRST.txt

Oh, I'm talking about after you click the X on the GUI to close the program, it keeps running in the taskbar and you have to right click the taskbar icon to actually close the program, there's go to be a way to set it so when you click the X in the GUI it just closes, no need for the extra step.

Yeah, I don't see any option to change the way it closes out, just if it starts with Windows or not, along with a few various options but nothing to do with closing when the window is closed, I know the older versions had that but not 3.

Why would I want the program to close after looking at and possibly changing things in the GUI? I would want the GUI to close and not the program. To close the GUI and program at the same time right click and click close on the taskbar icon. That eliminates 1 step for you.

I've also changed to V3 and cant find anyway to shut down Malwarebytes free after right clicking and scanning a file except for having to close it in the taskbar as well. @Aura Hi, there is no option in the MB taskbar menu, or settings in the app to close after scanning. This is different behavior to V2 and a PITA..A shame because otherwise very nice.
