Hello @harrishattie

Got a few things to try to get to the bottom of this--

  1. Could you exit Malwarebytes completely and see if the issue still occurs. 
    1. Right-click Malwarebytes icon in the Taskbar
    2. Hit "Quit Malwarebytes"
    3. Confirm UAC Prompt (if one comes up)
    4. Test Word
  2. If the test above shows that this is an issue with Malwarebytes, could you get us some logs?
    • Make sure to get FRST and MB-Check logs for us

Thank you!

Download the Latest MB3 v3.3.1.2183 CU 1.0.262 from ->>RIGHT HERE<<-

Did you download from this link? You show to have installed a slightly older version (CU) on your install.

Malwarebytes Version information
   "controllers_version" : "1.0.236",
   "db_version" : "2018.01.08.05",
   "dbcls_pkg_version" : "1.0.3650",
   "installer_version" : "3.3.1",

Latest controller version is 1.0.262...

lets try a clean reinstall to see if that helps your situation... If it does not correct your issue, then re-run the tools and provide a fresh set of logs.

Let's try this first.... (Malwarebytes clean removal tool will backup your license information and then re-enter the license to the new install)

  1. Please follow the steps in this pinned topic to uninstall your current version of MBAM and reinstall the latest build - Malwarebytes mb-clean tool (NOTE: After uninstalling with the mb-clean tool you will be asked to reboot. Once you reboot it will ask you if you want to re-install Malwarebytes, you can select YES (it will download the latest version) or you can download the latest version manually (currently v3.3.1.2183 CU 1.0.262) to re-install from HERE)
  2. If that does not correct the issue, then please read the following and attach to your next reply the requested logs - Diagnostic Logs (after you run all the tools requested, all the logs will be combined into one log file named: mb-check-results.zip located on your Desktop (which will include the FRST logs inside the zip file))
  3. NOTE: More info about the latest Malwarebytes 3.2.2 HERE; MB 3 User Guide ONLINE; MB 3 User Guide PDF; MB 3 FAQ: Malwarebytes 3.0 - Frequently Asked Questions

Please let us know how it goes.

Thank You,
