    I have 2 home pc's exactly same specs, but different printers and a few different programs on each - one works fine with MBAM3 - the other freezes up on startup and shutdown with MBAM3. I have tried installing MBAM3 a couple times on the one which freezes and the problem returns each time. So, obviously something installed on that pc does not play well with MBAM3. On that pc MBAM2 does work, so for now I will continue using MBAM 2 on one pc and MBAM3 one one pc. Wish I could figure out what the differences that cause the problem are. But, hopefully a solution will come soon from the MBAM crew. I have had MBAM for several years and had excellent experience with it until Version 3.

    FWIW They (MBAM) are still having problems.... whether it's web protection, updates popup, or something else. At this point, it seems smarter to use Version 2 than Version 3 - just a warning to members in here.

    John, why would think it is better to stay with Malwarebytes v2. I have 2 machines running the latest version and both computers are working very well. Just because you get a popup or 2 is no reason to go back to version 2. If everybody did what you are recommending then v3 will never get improved. Each time someone sends in a report of a problem gives them a far better change to fix the problems.

    That's called BETA testing, and is something that is normally performed before the product is released, I am a long term Paying customer of Malwarebytes, but when the release version of V3 was installed I actually saw a BSOD and many other unacceptable errors, so had to remove it from my systems. I still have Nine months of my subscription to run so I may re-install when I consider the version 3 ready for release but I have found other options for security, (replacing Malwarebytes completely), so may not bother

    Nigel, while I agree with you in part, it is a funny situation, I had problems when I first upgraded, but with every update, problems are going away and it is to a point now that I have had no problems for days. It seems to be a computer specific problem, as some have no issues and others are having problems. I am not sure what Malwarebytes will do about us having problems during our subscription period, we can only hope they will take this into consideration. I can't speak for Malwarebytes, but I am sure they must have gone thru a Beta period before releasing the consumer copy, maybe not long enough or intense enough period..

    Hi All , I updated to Malwarebytes 3.0 and every time I start the PC a notification appears and says Real-Time Protection layers turned off but they are all on.
    running malwarebytes 3.0.6 and no issues, but i have all active protection turned off. i strongly recommend disabling real time protection and simply scanning anything you download or put on your system from another device before opening/running it. do this even if you trust the source.

    That sounds as if you are running a free version of Malwarebytes which has always been an on demand only product. The system has always been that if you wanted the scanning to be automatic that you paid for that option. If you are running a paid product what are you paying for ?

    I always, and always have, run a layered system of security which included a manual scan with two different security products of any downloads so I need to know that all components of the system I use are reliable.

    Malwarebytes 3 seems at the moment like a new car, a slight rattle from mis-fitting trim would be annoying but OK. the total lack of a braking system would not be

    Since the past update I have had no issues with Malwarebytes. I have the active protection on at all times, and have not experienced any issues. It is a funny thing to me and I definitely can be mistaken but I would say that most problems seem to be machine specific with either the hardware or software installed.

    This would have been something pretty hard to correct during the Beta Period since too many variables to take into account.

    I checked out one of our users here in this group, and all I see in his posts, him having problems with most software he installs, actually even problems with Windows 10 updates. That tells me maybe he has a unstable system or maybe running too many Anti-Virus programs and such and creating lots of conflicts which could explain some of the problems they are having.

    I run Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and I have basically no problems at all.

    I can't understand why someone would have 7 x Malware/Anti Virus programs running or at least installed on their computers. Paranoid people. No wonder why they have problems with their computers with all this stuff running in the background.
