Set MBAMservice to Automatic (Delayed Start)

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

Please change the MBAMService to Automatic (Delayed Start)

Here are a couple different ways you can change it. You only need to change it once with any one of these methods.

From an elevated Admin command prompt you can copy/paste or type in the following to make the change.
[Note: You need a space after the = sign for the SC method to work properly]

sc config MBAMService start= delayed-auto

You can type on the Start Menu - services.msc


Then scroll down until you find the Malwarebytes Service and double-click to open it and change the Startup type: to Automatic (Delayed Start)



It is possible to change it in the Registry as well, but highly recommend doing it via one of the methods above.
