I have received notification that Windows Defender and Microsoft Security Essentials were turned off.  I rebooted and everything seemed OK.  I noticed today that it happened again.  I checked Malwarebytes Antimalware and it seemed happy.  I checked the settings and scan rootkits was disabled.  I turned on that feature and started a scan.  That resulted in a BSOD when it got to the rootkit scan icon.  The system rebooted.  I logged back in and things looked normal.  MS Sec Ess warned that last scan was over 14 days ago.  I started a scan and after a minute or so, it was going well.  I opened MBAM and started that scan and got another BSOD when it started the rootkit scan.

I suggest you ask for assistance in the Malwarebytes Forum. Malwarebytes 3 - Malwarebytes Forums
