Massive Data Upload by MBAMService.exe

Recommended Posts

I don't think Malwarebytes stores any user data in the UK.  I could be mistaken, but I believe that all of their servers reside in the US.  That said, I do believe they still plan to comply by modifying the installer and default setting, probably in the upcoming 3.5 version currently in beta.

When is it turning back on?  After reboot, after upgrades or does the setting just never actually switch to off?  If it's the last one then something may be preventing settings from being changed, like something blocking writing to the config files that control settings or else something corrupting them so that they fall back to defaults.

Also, are you logged into an administrative user account when changing the settings?  If not then maybe it's a permissions issue.

If changing the setting from an administrative user account didn't fix it then please do the following:

  1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced Options on the main page (not Get Started)
  3. Click the Gather Logs button, and once it completes, attach the zip file it creates on your desktop to your next reply

Okay, a clean boot solved the problem.  After turning it off I was closing down MB, then re-starting.  Problem solved.
