Hi! I was wondering, is it possible that malwarebytes could somehow be blocking my instant messenger(Msn)?
I can't get messenger to sign me in anymore, nor can I install any other messengers (Such as yahoo).
Whenever I sign onto the computer every day, I see some kind of window quickly flash, before going into the bottom bar where malwarebytes is, like the program said something. O-o
Is that normal?

It's possible.

The fastest way to find out is to disable MBAM's active protection long enough to see if it was the cause or not. :thumbsup:

IP Protection Module

How do I disable this?
We wouldn't recommend disabling it, but if you must, you can do this by right clicking the MBAM tray icon, and unchecking "IP Protection".
