Internet drops (doesn't disconnect) when doing a scan

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I noticed that when MB scans my system, whether it's a manual scan or automated, the internet drops. The internet doesn't disconnect, I have it plugged in via ethernet and the ethernet icon is still there, if I'm in a discord call I remain in the call able to talk and be heard and all that good stuff. But internet searches just report back that I'm offline. Everything on my computer detects that I'm offline, yet I know I'm online thankfully because of being in a discord call. Is there any way around this? Does the web protection cause this?

I have never seen or heard that issue with anyone. I also did not see anything that sticks out in your logs.

Lets use the same support tool and do a clean uninstall and reinstall.

Please close all browsers and programs before running the tool. Right click and quit MB from the system tray also.

Once done it will attempt to reinstall both Malwarebytes and Privacy VPN.

Please say no and close the X button on the top right for Privacy.
