My version of the AV 19 updated automatically to v20 and bricked my W10 pc.
Windows wouldn’t Auto Repair of any of the other usual options.
Had to do W10 reinstall and restore from a few days old back up. All in all, a very tedious process. The sort of thing, ironically, that one does if a serious virus takes hold.
I’ve stopped auto updates on the software versions (not the database) and will not update again until confident that such issues have been eliminated.

OK done that. Apart from an annoying pop-up from MB telling me that Ransomeware Protection is off what now?
Providing you have a moderate technical capability and have patience and are willing to keep an open mind; and apply some mutual trust exclusions, it should be possible to get a working, smoother installation of Malwarebytes Premium 4 and the KTS / KIS 2020 with patch G or higher.
And you may have all of the real-time Premium protections of Malwarebytes for Windows.
The Malwarebytes help forum has very good tips.
