Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes cause BSOD on windows 10. It keeps happening every time system startup and then going into BSOD, it restart then go to BSOD. I keep going BSOD every time it start several times(restart as BSOD over too many time). I have to remove it in safe mode(without network). Safe mode with network, the system still go into BSOD.

Before installation Malwarebytes, the earlier version works with the rest of my AVs, anti malware software, anti spyware software. So is this version crashing my windows. As for Killer suit, the wifi is disabled and the lan is not in used. The setting didn;t change so it have no impact.

Please advise can I install a older version or you have beta version?

Malwarebytes is an AV replacement and all of the other software is not needed and has potential crashes/conflicts.

You are welcome to use the legacy version and turn off program updates.https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039024213-Download-and-install-Malwarebytes-for-Windows-v3

Hi @knightng . . .

I'd like to get a look at the BSOD kernel memory dump file(s), please.

Please run steps 1 and 2 found in this sticky thread - 


Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows - BSOD, Crashes, Kernel Debugging - Malwarebytes Forums


Attach the resulting zip file to your next post.

Thank you.

Regards. . .
