After no problems at all, suddenly Malwarebytes is taking ages in the quick scan mode and never finishes but 'hangs' with a black square where it should appear. It has then to be closed by Task Manager as it won't respond. Updates download fine. Has a Windows update altered something? Have tried uninstalling with Revo and re-installing - just the same. Anyone else having problems? Thanks
Thanks for all the suggestions - have uninstalled and then installed the new version -however - it is still taking forever on the quick scan and whilst its icon appears on the Windows 7 taskbar, clicking on it does not cause it to open on screen - instead I just get a pop-up message that it is already running. Windows conflict software suggests running it in XP (pack2) - (not even 3) xompatability mode so there is something not right. As I have added no new software to cause this that started about 3 weeks ago - I can only assume a windows update is to blame - weird! Thanks all.
It's the free version - I have downloaded the new one too but it still takes ages to appear having clicked on the icon - then updates fine -but what used to take 20 mins for a quick scan now never finishes!
Having deleted the previous version then loaded the new, I was still getting the same problems. I checked compatibility mode and the new version had loaded in XP compatibility mode. Removing the tick and applying seems to have made the new version run ok as did the last version - before the problems - so problem is resolved - I hope - and thanks to all who offered advice
