    How to always start MBAM as admin


    Hello,
    How to always start MBAM as admin when double-click when using standard account without using compatibility mode because their admin say using compatibility can cause issue?

    It might not be possible, mainly because of the limitations of a standard user in making changes to Windows which is what Malwarebytes does.

    Try a Right Click and see if you have a choice "Run as Administrator"

    On the desktop icon, you can also right click the Icon and go to properties > under the shortcut tab click Advanced on the bottom right>tick Run as Administrator.
