I can't turn on real-time protection

Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

I am having the same problem.  After trying the free month trial I upgraded.  Malwarebytes was working find for a couple of weeks until today  I got the message that "background service is offline."  Looking around online for help I was told I should reinstall the Malwarebytes software.

However after reinstalling I am unable to turn on real time protection.  When I click "turn protection on" nothing happens.  I have tried reinstalling several times without success and tried reinstalling in safe mode as was suggested elsewhere here.  No luck.  Reports does say that "real time protection was turned on" but the Dashboard continues to show the big exclamation point and the "you're not fully protected" message. 

I am running Mac High Sierra 10.13.5 and Malwarebytes 3.4.29.

Thanks to anyone who can offer help!
