    Malwarebytes Web Protection Won't Enable


    Yesterday afternoon MB blocked several attempts while on a web site. No problem though. This morning Web Protection is off. Trying to enable it says it's "Starting" and then reverts to off. Have tried everything I know. Anyone got suggestions?

    Attempting to run a scan is an instant failure. Only lasts a millisecond and finds nothing.

    This is a Known problem this morning ....Everyone has this issue today, lots of people have already reported this on MB's forum. Its due to the latest updates you received this morning, we have to wait for MB to send us another update. As of now, there is NO fix.

    It was fixed in 3.0.6, but it keeps reappearing. Like anyone is taking MB3 seriously, it is a joke product.

    If you are serious about protection, you should buy Zemana or Emsisoft. Malwarebytes died with version 3.

    Its just a bug in the latest updates we received this morning. Soon as MB sends us the fix, everything will be working again. Just need to have a little patience :)
