Malware Protection stuck at "Starting"

Recommended Posts

One 1/2 Thinkpads: same issue; same screenshot

On both PCs I could not change on<->off under protection module settings.

On the PC with the problem, I just rebooted, and it seems to have rebooted OK with all protections on.

I don't remember when I did the upgrade from Ver2 but this is an upgrade from ver2

Lets try these things first.

Add these to Your AV exclusions.


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


Reboot,  then move on to this.

  1. Please follow the steps in this pinned topic to uninstall your current version of MBAM and reinstall the latest build - Malwarebytes mb-clean tool (after uninstalling you can download the latest version to re-install from HERE)
  2. Malwarebytes 3.0.6 CU3 HERE; MB 3 User Guide ONLINE; MB 3 User Guide PDF; MB 3 FAQ: Malwarebytes 3.0 - Frequently Asked Questions

Please let us know how it goes.
