The Tray is a portion of Windows that is near the clock. It keeps programs that are working on the background in an accessible place without displaying the icon on the task bar. Malwarebytes 3 Premium has 4 Protection modules that are always on, Web Protection, Malware Protection, Exploit Protection, and Ransomware Protection. You can turn this off or on individually from the tray, but you can also shut off the whole program from the tray as well. This article will show you how.


  1. Click on the Tray Icon by the clock.
  2. Right click on the Malwarebytes Icon to open tray options for Malwarebytes.
  3. Click on Quit Malwarebytes.
  4. You will get a User Access Control pop up asking if you would like to allow this program to make changes to your computer. Click on Yes to close the program.

Note: Keep in mind with the program exited, you will no longer have the active protection.
