  2. Malwarebytes and Windows 10

    Then I'll suggest you follow these steps:

    1. Press Windows Key + R to open the run dialog

    2. In the box that comes up, type services.msc and click OK

    3. In the list, find Windows Management Instrumentation, and double click it

    4. Change startup type to Automatic

    5. See if you can open Malwarebytes, if not, do a reboot.

    Hello @walleyeblugil

    1. Published lists that could be sorted by build number likely are non-existent. Without devoting more time, it would be best if you quote the entire version number in a reply.
    2. If you have an unexpired or lifetime license, a clean install seems indicated if you wish to upgrade to Malwarebytes for Windows. (MB4)
    If you wish to upgrade immediately, and your computer meets hardware/software minimums, then:

    1. Please first make a safe/written record of the older product's valid Malwarebytes license Key/ID.
    2. Deactivate the activated license.
    3. Sequentially follow the steps in the following document:
    Uninstall and reinstall Malwarebytes using the Malwarebytes Support Tool

    Then activate to premium:

    Activate Premium subscription in Malwarebytes for Windows v4

    Dear John,

    What I meant was that I would suggest that you start your own question in the Malwarebytes help forum and explain to them what you are experiencing now.

    I'm not a Malwarebytes user myself but it sounds to me as if your problems/issues started when you updated your free Malwarebytes to the current version 4.

    If I were you I would follow these steps (although they say that's for version 3.... But I couldn't find anything for version 4):

    https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/190532-having-problems-using-malwarebytes-please-follow-these-steps/


    and ask your own question.

    I would like to mention that I used to recommend the free Malwarebytes version quite often in the past.

    Since some time though I - personally - am wondering about quite a few things in connection with Malwarebytes.

    In my personal opinion: Malwarebytes tends to be verrrry aggressive in what they decide to flag as potentionally unwanted programs....

    You certainly can decide what you want to allow and what not, the respective settings for version 4 seem to be explained here:

    https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3543


    What I would like to suggest as well is that you perhaps think about asking for free expert (real experts) help in this forum:

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-assistance/


    This does not mean that I necessarily think that your computer is "infected" ... But: It certainly cannot damage anything when real malware experts lead you through some thorough check-ups/scans etc.

    I hope this helps a bit...

    Best wishes,

    Smeed.
