Windows 7: MalwareByte's opens across dual monitors...

05 Nov 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)

What a strange issue... I doubt the people from Malwarebytes did this on purpose.
Version here, I can resize the window normally but it won't go below a fixed size.

Could you maybe try shutting down MBAM (close the window, right-click on the icon and select "Exit") and unplug your secondary monitor, run it then and see if you can resize it?

Sorry been away...

Nice idea turning off the second monitor. but no good, MBAM stretches off the screen. I unplugged the monitor and then did a detect to get windows to see only one monitor connected.

As to resizing yes I get the resize arrow and can make MBAM taller or longer but cannot make it any less wide than shown.

No I don't think MalwareBytes did this on purpose.

I changed the theme to windows basic and MBAM still opens across both monitors.
I then went into system properties: advanced: performance: selected Adjust for best performance
No change MBAM still opens across both monitors.

Apparently somebody else has experienced this issue too:
Seems like they haven't solved it though. I'd suggest contacting Malwarebytes, or starting a topic on their forums as they probably know more about their own product.

Thanks for the ideas. I'll stick with 1.75 on my main PC.
