I have XP Pro SP/3 with Malwarebytes 2.0.2.1012. My monitor is about 11x14" and I like the 800x600 pixel setting the very best (others are too small).  The Malwarebytes screens are too large & will not re-size. I have tried smaller settings and can then size the Malwarebytes screen on top or bottom, but not on the sides.  I go back to the 800 x 600 & the top & bottom are ok, but the sides are still off the screen.  I have searched diligently & used M'bytes help to no avail.  Does anyone have a solution?  I do not want to change the 800x600.  Yes, I am a very experienced computer user, and also very elderly.

Hi jshepherd

 

                Try this,first uninstall Malwarebytes restart if needed. Then reset monitor to the pixel settings you want, then install Malwarebytes again.

                                         Hope this helps,

 

                                                     hobb.

I have done the complete (entire) removal (Revno uninstaller--all the way) & reinstall about 3 times--same results.  I DID find that if I change the resolution to 1024x628 pixels, I can move the top & bottom borders to fit my monitor (the sides won't move at all).  I then do Ctrl plus Close & that will hold the top & bottom size when I change back to the 800x600 resolution & re-open.  That's better than nothing I suppose.  I sure would like to be able to size the sides, though.  The Malwarebytes 1.75 was just fine & I'm thinking of replacing the 2.0 version with it.  I use the FREE version.  Maybe FREE is the problem?

Thanks for the reply. hobb.

For any issues with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 the development team recommend you start a new topic in the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Help Forum and report them there.

I see where Animal moved my topic, and Bleepin' Janitor said to go to the forum. How in whatever do I find that. I clicked Janitor's link, and tried to click Animal's--nothing happened on either one. Maybe my question went AWOL?

The site opened--but what do I do then--I don't see my question or topic--nothing makes sense to me. Signing off.
I used to go to smartcomputing.com & it was so easy to use. This one is very confusing. I don't plan to be back--but thanks anyway.

It is the Malwarebytes forum board not BleepingComputer so your question would not be there.

You simply register and start a new topic where you can ask your question...just like you did here.
