Sometime during the last week the malwarebytes tray icon has disappeared after one or the other of the updates.. rebooting the machine (or making sure win 10 64 is up to date) have not helped with returning it.. checked everything from mbytes settings to windows taskbar settings and no luck.. I can start and manually use it, but the scan reports are cleared upon closing the program manually (clicking the X to return to the taskbar like normal) even when the program itself is open it won't bring up the tray icon for that matter.. Any suggestions on other things to try on this? it does show a malwarebytes service program running under task manager regardless but w/o the history option from the program showing results ..

Hello @thebrokenape

Let us get some logs please so that we can check and see what might be going on with the system.


To begin, please do the following so that we may take a closer look at your installation for troubleshooting:

I  don't see an obvious reason for it. It could be that Norton may have updated and now has a conflict with Malwarebytes?

Please setup file exclusions in Norton for Malwarebytes. Then set up exclusions in Malwarebytes for Norton as well.

Temporarily disable Norton and then download and update Malwarebytes

Then setup the exclusions and reboot




Let me know if that resolves the issue

Thanks @thebrokenape
