Hello,

so starting this afternoon I restarted my computer and now I can't get web-protection started. I have tried restarting the service as well. I do notice that once i restart the laptop that the protection is enabled but it'll disable pretty fast and i'll get the pop-up notification. this is version 3.3.1

I am using windows 10 x64 and I'm not using any other AV other than windows defender.

I've done a full scan and everything checks out any ideas on what to do?

I have attached the check results

Thanks in advance

any ideas on what to do?

Let's try and get some logs first so the team can review them and see if they can tell what may be causing your issues....

  1. FIRST: Create and obtain Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) logs Tell any program that blocks it to ignore or allow. It IS SAFE.
  2. Download FRST and save it to your desktop
    NOTE: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit
  3. Double-click to run FRST and when the tool opens click "Yes" to the disclaimer
  4. Press the "Scan" button
  5. This will produce two files in the same location (directory) as FRST: FRST.txt and Addition.txt
    NOTE: These two files will be collected by the MB-Check Tool and added to the zip file for you
  6. NEXT: Create and obtain an mb-check log
  7. Download MB-Check and save to your desktop
  8. Double-click to run MB-Check and within a few second the command window will open, then click "OK"
  9. This will produce one log file on your desktop: mb-check-results.zip
  10. Attach this file to your forum post by clicking on the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." or simply drag the file to the attachment area

so i'm not using killer as my wifi card anymore, currently its an intel 8265 which are using the latest drivers. Must be some stale drivers for them around, and i don't have any compatibility settings set

Shutting down Malwarebytes and restarting will clear it for a short time before issue reappears.

Before I shut off my PC 12 hours ago (Win 7 64bit, 3.3.1) everything was fine, after starting it again a little bit more than 2 hours ago I had the same problem:

Web-protection would start for a second (and say "starting"), then shut itself off again and give me the message.

Closing Malwarebytes, then restarting it as an admin and enabling "self-protection module early start" (mentioned here) didn't fix it and a scan only found an old .exe for VLC that's supposedly a bundle installer. After a couple of restarts I reinstalled Mbam and for now web-protection seems to be active again.

Sorry but I don't want to post stuff like that publicly.

Nothing in those logs to identify or be used against you in any way.

even though the problem's fixed for me atm?

Would like to see if everything is installed correctly and up to date.
