Malwarebytes EP not available as Security Providers on Windows Security

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes by default will not register as primary unless Defender is stopped.  Your display above shows that Defender is still running.

You can check security registration and status with Windows command.

wmic /Node:localhost /Namespace:\\root\SecurityCenter2 Path AntiVirusProduct Get * /Format:List

displayName=Windows Defender
pathToSignedReportingExe=%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MsMpeng.exe

If Defender is stopped, Malwarebytes should become visible in security centre.  Note: Defender will very persistently try to start/restart itself, unless you use GPO to stop it.
You can use the Malwarebytes policy setting to force behavior - Always Register Malwarebytes in the Windows Action Center
