Malwarebytes 3 prevents shutdown

Recommended Posts

Installed new W7 32.  Put Malwarebytes 3 on machine, turned on all protections.  Also have defender, customer did shutdown , hanged never finished shutting down, so she turned off.  Luckily, was able to do safe login as computer would hang on startup.  This windows install was 1 day old.  Repeated issue on shutdown, logged in and uninstalled malwarebytes.  Shutdown now works.

Please either turn off Defender in your Windows 7, or try adding these Malwarebytes files to Defender Exclusion list:

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MbamPt.exe
 C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
 C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\assistant.exe
 C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMWsc.exe
 C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbamtray.exe
 C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe
