  1. Provide a brief description of the issue
    • How did you encountered the issue and any steps to reproduce it
      • Installation of the beta software caused Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control to stop working
    • Do you get the same result more than once if you follow the same steps? Y/N
      • I only installed the beta software once. Tried stopping and restarting Malwarebytes Windows Firewall Control. That did not fix the problem.
    • If the system crashed (aka blue screen of death or BSOD), please include the error message
      Note: we will reach out to you if we need a full memory dump
      • No, the system did not crash.
  2. Any screenshot(s) of error messages(s) or other incorrect behavior
    • Screenshot of error message

Thanks for the file!

Please do the following:

  • Open Malwarebytes.
  • Click Settings.
  • Click Security.
  • Under Windows startup, click Advanced.
  • Turn the, "Enable self-protection early start" setting off.
  • Close Malwarebytes.

Once done, please restart the computer and check if the issue still occurs.

Excellent. Thanks for confirming!

We have a defect filed for this issue. For now, I recommend leaving the Enable self-protection early start turned off.
