Will Windows UAC Block my protection Module?

Recommended Posts

I just bought the full version of Malware Bytes.

Thing is, everytime I go for a scan, I have to hit the allow button to allow the program to run.

So, that got me wondering if my Protection Module is giving me real time protection, OR, is my User Account Control settings blocking the real time protection?

Its like Haider has said, make sure you get your Scheduler configured correctly for automatic updates and scans.

When the scheduled update runs it will run just fine without being prompted by UAC.

When you run a manual scan, it will prompt you by UAC, this is by design and it is working correctly.

IP Test Site

You can test your IP Protection/Web Blocker by going to a site that resides on Malwarebytes' own servers and is perfectly safe. The test address is iptest.malwarebytes.org.
