MB prompt for access at every startup

Recommended Posts

I run windows 7 on a laptop and i caught the Win 7 Antispyware virus. It "appears" that I have removed it by repairing the registry and cleaning with mb and avg. Everything is running normally but now every time I restart I am prompted to allow access to malwarebytes to make changes.

Is this indicating that there is still some remnence of the virus that mb is trying to contain, or could there be some other reason for this?

Hello Wopymick,

MBAM requires administrative privileges to remove items, schedule items, in addition update MBAM's database. The UAC prompt is from opening MBAM while logged into an administrative account. This is normal.

If you feel you are still infected.

As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

You can follow the directions below and someone will assist you with running scans on your system to see if they can detect anything.

Please print out, read and follow the Directions HERE, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

After posting your new post make sure under options that you select Track this topic and choose one of the Email options so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org

Thank you very much.
