Malwarebytes web protection disabled

Recommended Posts

I too am having the same issue, except this goes much deeper into what problems I am having with the latest MB.

This all started with Real time Protection always being turned off.  So far this is what I have done.

  • uninstalled MB
  • rebooted
  • cleaned the registry of any mention of Malwarebytes
  • reinstalled the latest version -, 1.0.122, 1.0.0
  • this seem to fix the Real time protection issue but created another issue
  • now I am getting updates are not current.
  • I followed the instructions in this thread
    • Quit Malwarebytes by right clicking the system tray icon (next to the clock) and choosing Quit Malwarebytes
    • Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService
      • The ProgramData folder may be hidden. If you can't find it, either turn on showing hidden files/folders or type the path manually
    • Delete any file that ends with .mbdb (there should be 7 files)
    • Open up Malwarebytes and check for updates
  • This fixed the updates issue for about 30 seconds.
  • now both the real time protection issue is back as well as the updates are an issue.

I am attaching my zip log files to this thread as well as a screen shot of the dashboard.  Guys, this issue has been a problem for way too long.
