Malwarebytes v1.51

Windows-7 Ult 32bit

Hi all,

I've been using the free Malwarebytes for a while now, & recommend it to all that will listen.

Recently, I've come up with a problem that I hope you can help me to fix. I say "me" but you are probably aware that this effects quite a few of us.

When updating MWB, I now get a problem with the computer, in that I lose Windows fonts, & end up with 'wingding' type symbols instead.

I have to do a System Restore - but this is more than difficult when we can't read anything (tis all in wingdings).

Obviously we shouldn't need to carry out a full restore every time we update MWB, so can you tell me where I've gone wrong please, or offer a solution ?

Hello and :welcome:

I am not on the staff here at Malwarebytes, but I have been around here for some time. This is the first I hear about this issue. (Not saying you are the only one though) That being said, lets try a fresh install of Malwarebytes by following the instructions below.

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.
