add everything as instructed set Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to start with windows but its not showing in taskbar and I get a error "[OpenEvent] Failed to perform desired action. Error code 2, which disable the protection. There is no where to exclude in firewall, its set to allow. thanks for all respond.

well, thanks everyone that offered help but its up and running well, did a couple of restarts and it still good, didn't need to add the exclusions at all just allow the firewall. It did a schedule scan last night and the log was clean. So all is good.

Just wanted to stop and say, all is working well, thanks again

That's good news. :)

The avast! forum is another place to discuss issues with avast! and MBAM:


Looking forward to V5.1 due out real soon that will support x64bit Boot-time scan although thankfully I have never needed it. :)
