MBam App Crash Windows 10 1809

Recommended Posts

I received a System Tray Notification that Web Protection was turned off.

I assumed that the Component package was updating  my version 1.0.519, did have two icons visible in the system tray

Now, Malwarebytes will not load at all from desktop icon, task bar icon or system tray "Open Malwarebytes", made 4 attempts to load the program resulting in 4

Critical errors Windows  Snip: 

Ran MB Support


Have not ran the "Clean" function yet from MB Support, waiting to see exactly what the issue is, first

Thank you, for your time

Guess I don't rate any assistance to let me know exactly what happened.

Fine way to treat an Premium User sine May 2013

But, this happens every time there is a New Version or Component package update installed over top an existing version.

Which tells me your update install script is flawed when installing over an old version already installed

Problem, has been fixed with running the MB-Support "Clean" function, and preserving licence & ID

Thanks for nothing

I don't know if it's any help, but I have seen at least one report of a somewhat similar issue recently where Malwarebytes seems to become corrupt and starts crashing following the update to the latest build and it appears to have been fixed using a tool that performs several system component repairs on Windows, though I unfortunately do not know which specific fix corrected the issue (I believe it's still being investigated by the Support team):


It may not be related of course, but given the timing I thought it might be relevant.
