Protection Module

Recommended Posts


I have purchased Malwarebytes for my computer. This computer is running Windows Vista Business edition on a Lenovo lap top. I entered the registration key successfully but when I went to enable the protection module is gave the following error:

[CreateService] Failed to perform desire action. Error Code: 1073.

Malewarebytes scans fine and there are no virus or maleware found.

Can you help?

Hi scientist53 and welcome to Malwarebytes.

See if this helps:

1. Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware using Add or Remove programs in the Control Panel.

2. Restart your computer (very important).

3. Download and run this utility.

4. It will ask to restart your computer (please allow it to).

5. After the computer restarts, install the latest version from here.

Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via e-mail.
