My with WINDOWS 10 Web Protection will Not Stay On

Recommended Posts

Yesterday my WINDOWS 10 on my Laptop Crashed. After bringing it back up Malwarebytes was telling me Web Protection is OFF.  I have gone into my Setting to try to Turn it On, but it will not stay ON. If I don't even get this Turned On, a Notice keeps Popping Up again and again to Annoy me. I have tried to get it Set back on, but it will Not Do So.

Sorry to hear you are still having issues. Can you please try this and let me know if it solves your problem?:

  1. Right click the Malwarebytes icon in the notification area/system tray and select Quit Malwarebytes
  2. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator
  3. Type the following: sc delete mbamwebprotection
  4. Reboot the computer
  5. Right click the Malwarebytes icon in the notification area/system tray and select Web Protection to re-enable it

The Instructions confuse me (?) I went to Settings, Systems, Notifications. There is No Icon for Malwarebytes or an Icon And then? How do I lauch a Command Prompt?

OK lets back up and give you a simpler automated fix.

Let us get a clean install of the current version. 3.3.1


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.

Porthos I just followed this other Instructions and my Malwarebytes  Is Fixed.  Looks like it did the Job. I have it running with all Protections & Web Protection ON.


Thanks for the update and your continued support of Malwarebytes. If you have any more issues don’t hesitate to post.
