MWB Already Running says XP


Recommended Posts

After installing v1.51.0.1200 I get a message at boot-time to the effect that MWB is already running.

I have two instances of MWB in my startup: mbamgui.exe /starttray and a just plain mbamgui.exe so I

assume one or the other will have to deleted. Presumably the latter?

Regards,

Cheemag

Hello and :welcome:

Sorry to hear your having an issue with Malwarebytes, the instrucions below should solve your issue...

Please do the following:


  • Download and run mbam-clean.exe from here
  • It will ask to restart your computer, please allow it to do so very important
  • After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here

    • Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via email if using the Pro version
    • Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.
      Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray if using the Pro version. Now setup any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQ's here or ask and we'll explain how to do it.

I did all of that to no avail, the second item was still in the startup.

I just deleted it.
