How to Temporarily Disable Malwarebytes


Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO features a protection engine that provides proactive defense against attack. The anti-virus software monitors your computer for suspicious activity, alerting you whenever it detects a potential threat. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, however, can sometimes miscategorize benign programs or activities as harmful, reporting what's known as a "false positive." You can disable temporarily real-time protection to prevent conflicts.

  • Expand the system tray in the taskbar to view the list of applications running in the background.

  • Right-click the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware icon and then select "Enable Protection" from the context menu.

  • Click "Yes" when prompted to turn off Real Time Protection.

Tips & Warnings

  • To prevent the protection engine from reactivating at startup, click "Start with Windows" to clear the check box next to it in the context menu.
  • If the "Enable Protection" option is grayed out, select "Exit" from the context menu instead.
