Hi :welcome:

One must ask for more clarification on what your end goal is exactly.   What "restore" function is this exactly?

Do you mean that within Malwarebytes for Windows ?

or else, do you mean a Windows System Restore ?

In either event, lets get some background & context of what it is that you are trying to do .

If you need to fully exit Malwarebytes for Windows, do a right-Click on the notification area icon of Malwarebytes ( on taskbar) & then click on "Quit Malwarebytes".   Then allow the system, say some 20 or so seconds.

If you need to deactivate your license temporarily in order to execute a System Restore simply open Malwarebytes and click the My Account button at the top right of the Malwarebytes UI and click on the Deactivate License button at the bottom.  Once that's done you may perform your System Restore and reactivate the software once it is completed.  If you have any trouble with the software afterwards it may be due to the way that Malwarebytes synchronizes its configuration files and settings in real-time, and rolling the system back via System Restore may cause those settings/configuration files to become corrupted in which case you should be able to correct the issue by downloading the latest version of Malwarebytes from here and installing it over the top of your existing installation.  Once that is done you may activate the software with your license once more and it should work just fine.

If you have any trouble please let us know but that should take care of it.

Thanks
