    Suggestion to read

    Malwarebytes for Windows Help - Settings

    Scroll down to Windows Action Center, see:

    You may have noticed a flag in your system tray that sometimes has a red icon with a white X appear over the flag. That is a status indicator for the Windows Action Center, which tells you when your computer has a security issue that needs your attention.
    Malwarebytes Premium 3.0 or Malwarebytes Trial 3.0 can now be registered as a security solution on your computer. There are three settings available, which will be abbreviated here for easier reading. Brief descriptions for the meaning of each setting are
    also provided.


    • Let Malwarebytes choose whether to register: Malwarebytes will determine whether it should be registered in Action Center. The program will not register when Microsoft Security Essentials is in use on a Windows 7 or older operating
      system. It will also not register when Windows Defender is used on a Windows 8 or newer OS.
    • Always register Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes program status will always appear in Action Center.
    • Never register Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes program status will never appear in Action Center.

  4. MalwareBytes

    Unable to connect to Malwarebytes server


    Edit: The 54.230.89.168 IP shown in your first screen shot is very different from the one in your other shot and in my own attempt to reproduce the issue (205.185.208.98)

    I'm not yet sure what to make of that. It does seem to suggest a possible cdn issue, but I am not expert enough to know for sure.

    But my suggestions would be the same:
    1. The most efficient thing to do would probably be to report directly at the Malwarebytes support forum.
    2. But if you want to post the 3 requested diagnostic logs here first or instead, I'll be happy to take a look at them.
