No Start On box with Windows 2000

Recommended Posts

Applied Patch, restared my system and the "Start on" box was present, but...

The was no AM/PM on the time. When I added an Update and Scan the upper window Scheduler did not display the

time or date data on the items.

I checked the Register and there was and entry for "SchedulerQueue" REG_MULTI_SZ with

4096, 30069122, 390565888, 1, 0 | 30069189, 627757055 12591108, 30069130, 2030827520, 1, 0 | 0, 0

I set it for 10:55 for am Update and 11:00 for an Scan - Nothing poped up BUT my machine LOCKed Up and I had to do

a HARD (Reset Button) reboot.

I have turned off "Start with Windows"

I am willing to BETA test again - Hope I can help fine a soultion for Windows 2000.

I checked my Vista Machine and the Scheduled Updates and Scans ran fine......

I followed your instruction to the letter ( this make 8 times I have re-install 1.45). Install, Patched rebooted, reentered key and same problem. :):)


The Link to download from CNET is the bad file with size 5780kbytes - this file get the Cannot import mbam.dll error. I download the fixed one from link on Post from fileforumbetanews.com - it is 5781Kbyes in size and loads fine.

Problem is still the same - did note that the time displayed in the "Start on" box is 24-hour clock, but when adding a Scan or Update the date/time does not appear in

upper window "Start on" column.

Did a manual update to 1.46 this afternoon and all seems okay. Scheduled a Daily Scan and hourly Update - Scan and Update ran and did not lock up my Windows 2000 PC.

Scheduling is still in 24 hours format on Windows 2000 - that's okay with me.

Thanks for everyones efforts at Malwarebytes..... :)
