I'm such a putz. In Task Manager I did an "end task" for Malwarebytes just to see what would happen, and my computer immediately froze up. I had to shut her down and reboot. Which brings me to the question, why is my little defender MB active anyway? since I didn't think the free version provided real time security? If I go into "protection" in MB and uncheck "Enable file system protection" and "Enable Malicious Website Browsing" will that stop all MB processes? and if I do that, would that compromise any manual scans I might be inclined to do?
I'm like a mischievous child with this new computer of mine. Always poking and prodding just to see.
Okay, I just checked and found out about the 14 day trial for the pro version, so that explains the real-time protection. But let me ask anyway, why did my system crash?
