Newest Malwarebytes doesnt allow me to show notifications

Recommended Posts

So after this new update I can no longer see whats inside the notifications. I click on them but nothing shows up.

The language is in Swedish but I recorded this to a GIF and show that I can't get redirected to the page that shows what the tool detected.

This was working before, but not anymore I don't know why.

So after a reboot it still doesn't allow me to show the message from the notifications. I don't know why this won't work.

Did you delete the logs from the Reports tab?  If so, that would be the reason as the details that are shown when you click on a notification event are displayed directly from the logs/reports.  If you didn't then it is possible that for some reason they were deleted during the upgrade process to the new version.

You should check the Reports tab to see if any entries are listed there, particularly related to any of the items listed in the notifications.  You can also verify that it is working as it should by triggering another event that creates a notification and then checking to see if you are able to see the details from that event and verify that the log entry is created under the Reports tab as it should be.  To do this you should be able to use the Web Protection block test website located at iptest.malwarebytes.com; just try to ping that site or to visit it using your web browser and Malwarebytes should block it.  Once it does, check your notifications and make sure you are able to see the details for that web block event.

Please let us know how it goes.

Hi @unknownguy,

Thanks for reporting this.

We can see that your detection reports are no longer on the machine, which is why nothing happens when clicking the notification. We're currently discussing whether this should result in the notification being removed from the Notification Centre.

You can click the "Clear All" button to remove the notifications.

As for why the detection report files are no longer present - unfortunately, it's not clear. How did you update to Malwarebytes version 3.8.3?
