I have Malewarebytes Premium on a Windows 7 Dell desktop.  Ransomware Protection Turned off and it won't turn back on.   Thanks for any help.

I'm sorry the software isn't working properly but we'll do our best to help.

Situation has resolved itself.  I decided to use my old standby on computer troubles.  I shut down and unplugged the computer to clear the memory and rebooted.  This time when I opened Malwarebytes the Ransomware protection was turned on.  I  appreciate the info on the Malwarebytes support tool and save the info on using it if I have a problem in the future.  Thanks for the prompt replies and support.  I am totally new to this forum and am still learning my way around.  I apologize if I don't follow proper procedures.  Bob
