MBAM Incompatible running alongside Defender Security Center

Recommended Posts

I found after running my Windows 10 Pro 32-bit Malwarebytes Premium program compatibility troubleshooter, it transpired a conflict of interests between MBAM and Microsoft's Windows Defender Security Center seen below photos.

Certainly after updating WDSC Version: 1.273.1523.0 Released: Aug 16, 2018 10:55 PM UTC.

Until that point, everything seemed ok and both programs seemed to get along fine, very odd indeed!

Have you set MB to ‘not register with with Windows action centre’ (or words to that effect)?

I have no idea how not to set MBAM to not register with the action center. It has no conflicting issues with WAC so far as I am aware.

The setting for Windows Action Center can be found under Settings>Application in Malwarebytes and includes 3 options.  I've indicated the option to have it not register with Action Center in the image below:

I don't know if that helps, but if not then please provide the logs mentioned above by dcollins:

  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

I sorted my problem. I had K/Drive in my exclusions list. The moment I removed it from the list, exited Malwarebytes and then restarted, my Ransomware Protection switch was back in the normal 'ON' position.

Thanks, this is a known issue with the latest release we're working on resolving now. The bit about Windows Security Center is new though, which is why we were asking for logs. Glad to hear you got it resolved
