Malwarebytes vs Rapidboot

#1 Post by onespeedbiker » Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:59 pm

I just solved an issue with Windows 7, where Malwarebytes would not load after a reboot. Turns out there is a conflict between Lenovo Rabidboot Shield and Malwarebytes (at least with my X230). If you have this issue, you will need to disable Rabidboot Shield from the Control Panel or elsewhere.

For once I like such a spelling mistake: Rapidboot --> Rabidboot :thumbs-UP:

If you have an SSD, you should UNinstall or at least disable that rabid thingy!
It's only good for old-fashioned HDD.

Yes it has been disabled. I'd like to say I did the misspelling on purpose, but sadly I did not. :)

A interesting side affect of disabling the Rapidboot, is several Security updates that had failed numerous times to install, were successful immediately after Rapidboot was disabled. It would seem, much like Windows 10 Fast start-up, these utilities are more trouble than the need to shave a few seconds off a the boot time.
