I am also getting the "Real Time Protection Layers turned off" popups since new update yesterday, which turns out to be web protection that never gets past the spinning start button.

All these solutions and checks are pure greek to me so can I just go back to the previous version until this new version gets fixed?  Would I have to completely uninstall this very version first? And where do I find the download for prior version.

Thanks so much

@DCarey your issue is different than what the users in this thread are reporting. For your issue, you should be able to follow the steps below to fix it.

  1. Under Settings -> Protection inside of Malwarebytes, turn on the option for "Enable self-protection module early start" and then reboot to see if your real-time protection starts
  2. If not, then under Settings -> Protection inside of Malwarebytes, turn off the "Enable Self-Protection" option and reboot to see if you can start your real-time protection

If you want to go back to MBAM2.x, you can download it here: https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam_2x

Dcollins,   All real time Protections are showing as 'on' now after clicking "Enable self-protection module early start" then rebooting, then clicking the Web Protection button, but was I supposed to get this message when I went to iptest.malwarebytes.org?  Am I fully protected or not? Thank you.

I may be repeating. This worked for me.
