solution for issues installing and registering MBAM 1.45 on Win 7

Recommended Posts

I"m running Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit and tried to install MBAM 1.45. My regular user account is a standard user and I installed as that user. It asked for the admin password and installed. No problem so far.

I wasn't able to actually register MBAM. It would say registration accepted or thank you or something like that, but that was it. So I wasn't able to start real-time protection, or have MBAM add itself as a startup program to start with Windows.

It puzzled me for a bit, but I found that, unlike some other software, you actually have to register and configure MBAM as a user with admin privileges. Once I switched to my admin user, I was able to register it, and I setup real-time protection. I logged out and back into my regular account, and I had to tell MBAM to enable real-time protection there too, but as it was now registered I had no problem.
