I am not using any modifications to my operating system's font rendering system.

Any ideas what might be causing this, and/or how to fix it?

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

Spoiler
  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop
  9. Please attach the file in your next reply.
  10. To uninstall all Malwarebytes Products, click the Clean button.
  11. Click the Yes button to proceed. 
  12. Save all your work and click OK when you are ready to reboot.
  13. After the reboot, you will have the option to re-install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows.
  14. Select Yes to install Malwarebytes.
  15. Malwarebytes for Windows will open once the installation completes successfully.

Be sure the following setting is off.

Alright, the setting is disabled. I honestly didn't even notice that it has hardware-accelerated rendering now.
I'll let you know if it's been fixed once I restart my computer.

Yeah, the problem has been fixed. Not quite sure what happened there. My laptop uses an NVIDIA mobile GPU, the NVS-3100M, which last received a driver update many years ago.

New clean installs of Malwarebytes has that setting off by default now due to the issue.

Yes, it's an issue with NVIDIA GPU's I believe, as I too experienced this issue early after hardware acceleration was integrated and all my my rigs use NVIDIA GPU's.  I guess their QA guys are using AMD GPU's, Intel IGPU's or they're testing in VM's, though looking at NVIDIA's sales numbers every year and their wide adoption in the OEM space, not to mention just checking the Steam hardware survey numbers, I would think testing with what is likely to be the same graphics chip/driver most of your customers are likely using (and if they're pulling telemetry they should already know) when implementing such a feature would be a priority.  Of course I too am using MXM/mobile GPU's so it is also possible that it does not occur on desktop standard PCIe models (which is what they may be using in their test rigs if it does only impact the mobile chipsets).
