Windows XP tells me "I may not have an antivirus program running", with this free antivirus installed.
But, I can update the software normally - it tells me when it's out of date, and in the last few weeks I remember it alerting me to when it picked up a few viruses.
What's the deal?
The free version of Malwarebytes does not have a real-time component. It is not actively monitoring your system.
When you first install, it runs as a trial (14 days) so real-time is enabled, but that has most likely expired.
BTW: I use both the full version of Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials to keep my machine protected. However, I don't think MSE runs on XP.
