Update requires kick in the guts to start again


Recommended Posts

The new update requires you to accept the new terms regarding email but after you accept it you have to manually turn it off and restart or it will be gray and doing nothing. Other than that it has been working very well. I have a couple of full licenses, added the extension to 1/2 the PC's here and was wondering if this is an additional layer of protection or just doubling up.

Hi.    :welcome:

The Malwarebytes extension for Chrome is additional direct protection for the browser.  It can protect ( more directly) against tech support scams, dodgy websites.

See the pinned note at top of this sub-forum about the browser extension   https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/218616-malwarebytes-browser-extension-for-chrome-beta/

It is no major drama. I did 2 more PC's both same issue and easy fix. I think Chrome disables it until you agree to the new term then once done it only 1/2 reactivates the app. If you hover the mouse over the icon it tells you Malwarebytes has access to the site. While that might be the case it is certainly not functioning until you open the drop down settings via toolbar ext and toggle off/on the pause/resume slider and from there it is back in biz and good as gold.

Cool good to hear. I can also report that the major update to Microsoft Windows 10 - 1903 will knock it out on Google Chrome too. Although in this instance you get an unmissable exclamation mark icon up top over the Google Customize and control button > click > accept but you do have to open MB panel and do the off/on process to bring it back to life. Given my experience with several W10 updates I was just happy to see the lock screen tbh.
