CU4 restarts with Exploits Off -- does not come On


Recommended Posts

After Deactivation, I did a clean uninstall with mb_clean, rebooted, checked for no traces of MBAM.

I installed CU4, out in my Life License, updated to current data, did a Full Scan, rebooted.

Now MBAM comes up with Exploits off.  I manually turned this On, but there is progress.  The Dashboard is calling for a Scan??

I followed the same procedures on my other independent Thinkpad also with Win10 x64 Pro.  No problems on that PC (yet).

I attach the log folder.

I rebooted and no problems so far.  However, I point out that after my new install and reboot, there were no problems until about a min later when I got the yellow popup.  Before then, I of course checked MBAM and it was OK.

After the reinstall MB thinks and is correct that a scan has never been done with the new install.

No, let me be more clear:  I uninstalled CU3, rebooted, installed CU4, put in License, Updates, SCANNED as requested, rebooted AGAIN.

Everything seemed OK -- NOTE that this is after the second (2nd) reboot.  However, after a couple of mins, the yellow pop-up said Exploit Protection was off, would not start, and needed a SCAN.  After putting the logs into this forum, I just rebooted -- third (3rd) time.  Now, CU4 is up OK, and no additional SCAN is being requested.

 

Clearly, after the new install (and SCAN) and reboot, CU4 was not truly ready until after an additional reboot.

I always

Close all open browsers so MB can hook and un hook it self during install and uninstall Note If using Chrome, by default it keeps parts running in the background even after you close it.

Disable self-protection If possible.

Deactivate  Malwarebytes.

Run regular uninstall process.

reboot.

Use Mb- clean tool

reboot

install MB- get updates only

Reboot again just to make sure every thing sets correctly.

Set your schedules and exclusions. and run first scan.

I also always use ccleaner on the registry after an uninstall-reboot before a reinstall.

I will not ever suggest that to any one. Registry cleaners are not recommended by Microsoft or Malwarebytes.

Please do not attempt to start a debate about that stance here please and thank you.

PS. If it works for you great it is your system but please don't advise its use on the forums.
