Can't check windows defender scan results, because of malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

I've had a small problem the last few months and would like to know if anyone has a solution.

I've been using malwarebytes for a few years now (premium pretty much one year), and this problem" came up a few months ago. Malwarebytes is (as per standard) registered with windows defender, so always when there's a quickscan of windows defender, and I wanna look at the scan summary through the "Scan finished"- notification, I get a pop up. Said pop up states that "The admin restricted the access to some areas of this app" (roughly translated from german). This obviously does not happen, when I uncheck the "register malwarebytes with windows defender"- option, but I'd like to have it registered and still be able to access the scan summaries. I know it's a small problem, and in no way any kind of security threat, but is there any way to stop this from happening without separating malwarebytes from windows defender?

Thanks in advance.

Greetings,

Unfortunately you cannot register Malwarebytes with Security Center and still have Windows Defender active.  This is because Microsoft does not allow Windows Defender to remain active if any other program is registered with Security Center as antivirus protection.  To use Malwarebytes with Windows Defender still active you need to turn off the option in Malwarebytes for Malwarebytes to register in the Windows Security Center.

I hope this helps and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

Thanks

Thank you for the quick answer, very much appreciated. Also my bad for the late reaction on my side. The issue I encountered, was actually the only one while using both Defender and Malwarebytes simultaneously (real time protection is obviously off in this case).

I've turned off the additional scans of defender, so I don't have to bother with defender scan summarys now anyway.

Cheers and have a good day
