Malwarebytes - Unable to connect the Service

Tried to run Malwarebytes last night and got a small pop-up error claiming it was Unable to connect the Service.


The solution to fix was simple. On my windows 7 machine I clicked on Start then Control panel, the went into Administrative Tools and double click on Services.

I found the Malwarebytes Service in the list, it was Disabled.

So I right-clicked on it and went into properties.


In the properties window, On the General tab, In the Startup type: section, I click on Disabled and switched to Automatic.


Then I clicked on the Apply button. This allowed me to then click on the Start button to start the service.

Malwarebytes should start up just fine after that.
