Should I turn on Malwarebytes option Always Register Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

I am running Webroot Secure Anywhere version V9.0.29.52.  Also running Malwarebytes Premium Version 4.2.0.  Should I leave Malwarebytes option Always Register Malwarebytes in the System Security Center turned on?   It is on by default, but it almost sounds like it might override a Webroot function?  Now the Webroot people will tell me to turn that switch off, but I don't really see any reason why. 

This is what Webroot folks say: I would not show MBAM in Security Center as Webroot is your main AV and Security!

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:

  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program

  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.

Hard to say as I would never use anything other than Defender With Malwarebytes.

I would go ahead and turn off register in action center. It does not change any Malwarebytes behavior or protection but it might help webroot.

Also your MB is out of date.

Thanks, have now updated.  I have considered letting Webroot run out, have about 3 more weeks on current license.   Am hearing MS virus software much improved, guess I could give it a try and figure out how to set up and use.   I do kind of like Webroot application protection where I can assign applications that get protection to insure personal data is not extracted without permission.   Then again, I am still thinking of the old MS virus software, understand now much better.

You have heard correctly, Windows Defender has improved quite nicely.  It works great with Malwarebytes and should be all the protection you need.  If you uninstall Webroot, Windows Defender should enable itself once it sees that Webroot has been removed.
