Upgrading VS Code breaks when malwarebytes is running


Recommended Posts

VS Code has built-in upgrades, and often will automatically try to upgrade when available after it closes. Except that Malwarebytes will silently break the upgrade and break the install process. Which means it uninstalls VS code and I have to manually reinstall it with zero notices or messages from Malwarebytes. But If i disable Malwarebytes before the upgrade, it goes smoothly. Please fix this.
