Windows 10 update turns off Malwarebytes Real-Time Protection

Recommended Posts

I have Malwarebytes version This morning Windows 10 did a lengthy update (called "feature update to Windows 10, version 1709"). Following the update, when I restarted my computer, I received the following notification from Malwarebytes: "Real-Time Protection turned off"

I keep trying to turn it on; it says "starting," but then stays off. How do I make it operational again?

Well, it happened again. Another Windows update, and now Malwarebytes' Real-Time Protection is turned off. Same as before, I try turning it on, but it won't go. Is the link above to the latest version? And how do we locate these online? (I see links to the free version, but I have the paid version.)

Throwing in my two cents - I'm a paid Windows subscriber and I have stopped Malwarebytes until I know what's going on. Glad I'm not the only one.
