Unable to run Malwarebytes

Recommended Posts

Thank you for the report from SecurityCheck.

It is good to see that BitDefender free antivirus is up to date & is the resident antivirus.

There are a number of other items that do need your attention & follow-up.

I very much regret that Malwarebytes for Windows is still crashing.  It is still a mystery as to why it is so.  Plus since this is on Windows 7 I am not confident as to whether this specific pc will succeed.


The Windows O S  is what need your follow-up & attention.

But I already stated that.


Here are tips on keeping your web browsers safer.   Please make time  and read all of this.     apply the tips.

See this article on our Malwarebytes Blog



You want to disable the ability of each web browser on this machine from being able to allow "push ads". That means Chrome, Firefox, or Edge browser (on Windows 10), or on Opera.

Scroll down to the tips section "How do I disable them".


If this pc has the Google Chrome browser, or the Brave browser, I suggest you install the Malwarebytes Browser guard for Chrome.


To get & install the Malwarebytes Browser Guard extension for Chrome,


Open this link in your Chrome   browser: 


Then proceed with the setup.


For    Mozilla Firefox, to get & install the Malwarebytes Browser Guard  Firefox extension.


Open this link in your Firefox browser:   



Then proceed with the setup.


That link is for English US.   There are other language version.  Just go to the very bottom right of the page and look at “Change language” list drop down.
