Malwarebytes 4 windows security center registration issue

Recommended Posts

I'm having the exact same issue as OP. I have MBAM at least on three Windows 10 PC at home and they all have the goofy issue. Nothing I've tried seems to fix the glitch. Even clean install of Win 10 doesn't solve the issue. I want to say that this has been happening ever since the Windows 1809 build and has been persisting into the current 1903.

I was reading online that for a couple of months the recent Windows Updates have been breaking a lot of stuff. Webroot seems to restart itself once after the bootup and redisplays the same exact Windows notification "Webroot extension is available for Edge."

This probably doesn't affect the core MBAM protection and features but I wish that it was fixed so that Windows Defender would get disabled since it's near useless.

You say it is fixed, but I see nowhere in the announcement that it has been in Windows 10.

That notice is from Windows 10.   It is not from MB.

I am understanding that you want no protection from Windows 10'  Windows Defender.

You may want to consider turning off / "disable"  the Windows Defender Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA) Protection

WSC for me is now showing the normal message of "getting protection status" instead of "enable tamper protection".

After another reboot it is back to "enable tamper protection" again

This issue in the changelog shows w7 which, to me, means Windows 7. There is no mention of Windows 10. You keep saying it's fixed, but there are people here telling you that it's not. I have never had any other antimalware/antivirus program with as erratic behavior with Window Security Center as I have with Malwarebytes. I am aware that the tamper protection notification comes from Windows, but it has never appeared until Malwarebytes 4.0 was installed. I think you folks should quit stating it's fixed when users tell you otherwise.

@LiquidTensionjust to confirm, is the "enable tamper protection" WSC status for a few minutes after reboot caused by MB or not?

Tamper Protection in Windows 10 isn't related to this forum topic or to the WSC fix mentioned in the changelog.
The issue that we fixed involved the status of Malwarebytes being reported as turned off when the product was fully enabled.

Is your only issue with WSC reporting Tamper Protection as off? What is the current status of Malwarebytes? Do you have the Windows Defender "periodic scanning" setting enabled? By default, it is expected for Tamper Protection to be disabled when another security product is registered as an Anti-Virus in WSC. It can however be enabled if the Windows Defender "periodic scanning" setting is enabled.

---

Also, as mentioned earlier, it takes several minutes after a Windows startup for WSC to report correct information for the system. This has nothing to do with Malwarebytes and is entirely related to expected WSC behaviour. There is no value in checking WSC immediately after a reboot.

Fixed here in the most current Malwarebytes version with most recent component update on Windows 10 version 1909. After reboot, MB registers in the WSC as it should and Windows Defender is disabled.

Please keep in mind that Malwarebytes doesn't need to register in the Windows Security Center in order to function.  All Security Center does is monitor the status of your protection as reported to it by Malwarebytes itself and since Malwarebytes monitors its own status it will alert you if there are any issues such as protection not being enabled or signatures being out of date.

I personally turn off registration of MB in every computer I service. All my clients use both Defender and MB and some times MB turns off Defender when registered.

i know friend, but sadly, i dont love the way how defender works. if i had a cpu such as ryzen 2600 or i7 8700k with hyper threading and lots of threads, i could've used defender

but as of now, its just a headache for my 6 core 6 thread cpu.

i shoot up battlefield 5 and guess what? stutter every 5-10 minutes. whenver i stutter, i see windows defender randomly using cpu to scan pc or scan some executable it thinks it dangerous.

not to mention, for the 1 year i've been with malwarebytes, malwarebytes has caught tons of legit trojans viruses and such. but defender was sleeping all the time. just take the last month for example. three trojen attempts happened while defender was active but it didn't found them. i m sure it would let those trojens take away my pc if i didn't have malwarebytes or something

and again, also, if i were to accept windows defender real time , i would never resort to malwarebyytes in the beginning. only reason i got premium for mb was for its real time protection.

but sorry, my low threaded cpu can't handle double real time protections

Your i5 8400 and 16 gigs of ram should not be an issue.  Hope you also have a SSD as well.

I do not consider MB something I would resort to. Is just part of a layered approach to security.  There are several things that MB does not detect that Defender will. Yes more than likely MB might stop them with web protection or exploit protection if you execute the file but Defender will catch things before you have to "run" them.

 

Did you actually fully neuter Defender like it mentions here ?

Also like exile mentioned MB does not have to register in the security center to function. 

Anyway, Best wishes and Happy holidays to you and yours.

thank you friend but somes became very demanding. ac odyssey and bf5 for example puts 10 gigabyte ram load and full cpu loads., i really mean it :) when the defender decides to scan it gets worse

sadly i cannot disable defender via gpedit bcoz i have a windows home licence :)
