    I have gone though the problem which you are facing in your computer and as you have said that you are using Avira antivirus in your computer and that is why I would like to tell you that you should first set the Exclusions for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Avira and then check whether same problem is occurring or not.

    If you donít know about how to set the Exclusions for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Avira then I will help you with that. To set the Exclusions for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Avira you have to first open the Avira in your computer and then you have to select the local protection. Now after doing that you have to click on the guard and then open the configuration. Now after that you have to select the export mode option click on the plus sign to expand the list. After doing that you have to select the exceptions. Now open the browse window from the Processes to be omitted by the Guard and then double click on the mbam.exe file from malwarebytes folder the and then add it.

    After trying this solution your problem will get solved.
