Windows 7: Malwarebytes in Context Menu

Malwarebytes in Context Menu

How come I can't get malwarebytes to show up in my explorer context menu like it's supposed to be? The box is checked in mbam and I rechecked it but it's still not showing up. Does anybody with mbam have it in theirs?

Are you trying it inside "libraries"? have you tried it in a file outside? e.g. on desktop? Winrar does the same....but works outside libraries.

I don't get it for anything in the context menu anymore like it was and should be. I just downloaded the mbam program update too and it still doesn't show up.

Works for me. I get the option of scanning in the context menu. Maybe you didn't select the option during install. Just my guess.

No, I have it selected and have unchecked and rechecked it. It's checked by default. It was there before, I don't get it.

You're trying to get a 32bit program to show extensions in a 64bit Explorer window....

Think about it....

Also, see Vista 64 bit - Malwarebytes Forum

This applies only to the registered (read: paid and / or beta tester) version of MBAM....

But your Explorer integration also applies to 64bit versus 32bit.

For example, if you installed a 32bit file manager, such as xplorer2 lite 32bit, you'd see the extension there.

I know - main reason I was poking fun at you is because I ran into much the same thing (almost verbatim, in fact) when I ran a 64bit OS for the very first time - last May....

So, I was having my fun cause *finally* someone else had done the same.

Look at it this way- you've just joined an elite club that includes you, me, and (I'll bet) a few others from here as well....
