Real Time Protection turning off

Recommended Posts

Last 10 days I see the message "Real-Time Protection turned off". In Malwarebytes Settings/Protection tab I see that Web Protection is turned off.

Any attempts  to turn it on fail. 

In addition, last couple of days I get a system box with a message "We are sorry but MB service stopped working. The program will now restart" with OK button. Pressing OK restarts MB.

Attaching mb-check-results.zip file.

   "controllers_version" : "1.0.0",

You have a bad controllers version. I cant prove it but I think Avast is part of the issue.

I want you to do TWO things, Do not stop on the first step because it seems to be fixed.;)

First.

Let us get a clean install of the current version.

 

We have another tool called MB-Clean which will automate the whole process for you.

 

 

The clean removal tool will backup your license information and then re-enter the license to the new install.

  Tool can be found at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb_clean

 

1. After downloading the tool run the tool.

2. The tool will automatically clean up the older possibly damaged installation and will ask you for a restart.

3. Restart your system and then the MB-Clean tool will prompt you to re-install the latest product.

4. Click on "Yes" to reinstall MB 3.×.

5. Now you will have the latest product installed.

 If it does not offer the new install after the reboot you can download and install from here. 

https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mb3  

 

NEXT

I would like you to add these files to your Anti-Virus (Avast) exclusions list as mentioned in this FAQ HERE (my list below includes the exe files as well) Please restart your computer after you do this.

Be sure to get all the files.
 

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\assistant.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\malwarebytes_assistant.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MbamPt.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbamtray.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMWsc.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbamwow.exe
  • C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\farflt.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbae64.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBAMChameleon.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBAMSwissArmy.sys
  • C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mwac.sys

Also please exclude the following folders too: (The complete folder)

I did everything you said:

- used MB tool to automatically re-install MB

- added 14 files and 2 folders to Avast exclusion list (I do not quite understand why I need to add individual files if whole directory is excluded. I do not have MBAMService subdirectory).

It looks like it did NOT fix the problem. The Web Protection layer is either off (and I get the message) or it is hanging in the "starting" status. 
Attaching MB re-install log.

I am having the same problem - 3 different machines in the last two days. I do NOT have Avast installed.

The computer has just crashed. Before the crash there was a MS message "Your computer is low on memory". My computer has 16G real memory and I never ever got this message. Only Google Chrome was running at that time. Task Manager showed that MBAMService.exe was taking 12-13% CPU and 14G virtual memory.

After re-boot MBAMService.exe is still taking 12-13% CPU and virtual memory is constantly increasing (now 10G).

Having the exact damn same problem. Suddenly my computer was low on memory (impossible I just build a top-tier rig). Then my MBAM service was totally spacing out, it even reverted from premium to the normal version. I also had the problem with real time protection turning off now. I uninstalled everything with the special tool and installed everything again. Now I do have my premium version again but real time protection keeps turning off.

 

HELP.

Same issue going on here... tried the steps above and got this result so far:

MWB_Ram_Usage.jpg.7bcd05ce321dba0376a1cb10d7471d88.jpg

 

On top of insane memory usage, Real-Time Web Protection still won't turn on.

We're sorry you had issues with our program today. We've addressed the issue and here's what you need to do to fix it.

*** How to resolve / verify you have the fixed update package ***

  • Update package version 1.0.3803 (Malwarebytes 3) or v2018.01.27.12 (Malwarebytes 2.x) or higher contains the fix
  • To resolve, simply reboot your machine. In some cases, a second or even third reboot may be needed.
  • To verify you have this update, go to Settings ->  About -> Update package version: 1.0.3803

If you continue to have issues or experience new ones, please start a new thread and we'll happily look into that for you.
