Windows is blocking MalwareBytes on startup. I've clicked 'Show or Remove Blocked Startup Programs' but next to Malwarebytes it says 'Permitted'

I can click 'Run Blocked Program' each time but I wondered if there's a way to unblock it permanently?

There was a problem with Malawarebytes v. 141 which caused Windows Defender to block MWB at startup. This problem has been fixed in v. 142 which is now available. There was a fix for it, but the fix is no longer necessary with the new version.
