Malwarebytes unable to connect the service

Recommended Posts

I upgraded Malwarebytes and when I try to start it, I get the message "unable to connect the service" and it won't start. I hadn't restarted after I upgraded, but finally did. Malwarebytes opened, then said there was a new version, which I installed.

OS = Windows 10
I am running these security apps in the background. They were running before.

WinPatrol Plus v 34.11.2016.27
WinAntiRansom 2016.3.368 - Not sure it was actually doing anything because I forgot to put in my license code, but I have entered it. It called out that Norton had done a Ransomware like action, but that is probably between WinAntiRansom and Norton. It also said that FRST performed a ramsom-type action when FRST loaded.
Norton Security - C:\Program Files\Mawarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe is allowed in the Firewall settings. Norton says that there are no issues, but it doesn't catch everything which is why I installed Malwarebytes and got the version which runs all the time and does all the auto-stuff.
