Again, Malwarebytes freezes my computer after scan!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Recently, I posted a message regarding an issue I was having with Malwarebytes software freezing my computer. At the time, I went in my Panda anti-virus and on the list of access for the Panda firewall, I made sure that Malwarebytes was autorised as inbound & outbound connection instead of just outbound connection. At the time it work when I did a scan but unfortunatly, I crash my computer (Bsod) and when I did a scan after, it started again freezing. I went to check again in Panda AV if something had changed but nope, it didn't so I tried instead of inbound & outbound conn, deleting it but it didn't work. I really don't what to do, please help?
