Context menu to scan with MB inoperative

Recommended Posts


The context menu is there, but I try to use it, nothing is happening.

(my config is in my signature)

MBAM is not running with real-time protection.

Could that be the problem?

I'm also running under LUA, by the way.

(MBAM and MBAMGUI are configured to run as admin in SURUN, but the exact command-line has be to configured in SURUN though, and I don't know what's the resulting command-line when something is run from the Context menu)

Thanks in advance!

It is likely because you have mbam.exe set to run as administrator and UAC isn't prompting you as it should. Try setting its privilege level back to normal and see if that helps.

Nice try, Samuel, but it doesn't work.

(no UAC in XP Pro, by the way, but I understand what you mean)

I'll try from the admin user to see if it works at it should.

Does it work in your admin account or does it fail there as well?

It didn't work.

I did this: uninstall MBAM, reboot into admin account, ran mbam-clean, rebooted once again and re-install MBAM from scratch.

Now it works, and even under the LUA account... ;)

Case closed, thanks.
