Malwarebytes Tray Icon Slow to Start

Recommended Posts

This topic was previously opened (#369554) a explanation was given for the delay with the Malwarebytes Tray icon. It was stated that the delay is by design to avoid conflicts at startup. A member stated that the problem didn't occur with WIN XP but now it occurs with their WIN 7 64 installation. I have WIN 7 64 and the icon was appearing instantaneously until I wiped the hard drive and conducted a fresh install. Now, there is a delay with tray icon. Can anyone explain why it the tray icon was appearing instantaneously in WIN 7 64 but now has a delay. Additionally, if the delay is by design why is there no delay for Windows XP? Thanks in advance for your help.

Please review Item #17 of our FAQ located here.

In Windows Vista and Windows 7, Windows allows services to start with a delay, so that they run later in the startup process, but Windows XP does not, that's why there is no delay on XP. Item 17 that I refer to above explains how to change the startup behavior so that it starts normally instead of with a delay on Vista and 7, and that's likely what you or someone did at some point in your previous installation, and the reason it was starting instantly instead of with a delay.
