  3. Hiya Jeng, What is the current status of your system, any remaining issues or concerns...? Thank you, Kevin
  4. Hiya Nick, Good to hear we have finally got to grips with our nemisis, I suppose we can now clean up.. We have created several restore points along the way so we need to also remove them.. The proxy setting was the problem, it would seem that gotomeeting Task settings were the issue causing the problem. The FRST fix addressed the problem and the root cause, finally we have a good result. Obviously it was a long haul, but we got there in the end. Thank you for the donation, very much appreciated... Navigate to and delete the following, (if still present):

  6. Hello, I'm reporting a problem I paid for my subscription. But I don't know which account I tried directly with the software, but it doesn't display the account but only my PC and is it possible to deactivate the License Key option and avoid automatic renewal if the account is not remembered or if the account has never existed? Because I put the confirmation on an email that has no malwarbyte account. And I've deleted some emails, and I'm afraid that one is directly on malwarbyte or I've activated the renewal or since then it should be deleted how to do that? because I don't want to pay
  7. Yes, that's something that Apple does where they have an extensive review process for hosting apps on their app store. I suspect that the criteria for getting an extension hosted on Microsoft's web store is much less rigorous, otherwise it likely wouldn't happen so often that bad extensions make it onto their site.

  10. Hello Thomas87, Malwarebytes detected the issue you had as a PUM - which means, Potential Unwanted Modification In your case, it looks like Chrome Updates were disabled. Some users do disable this event themselves via regedit, as described here: http://www.chromefans.org/chrome-tutorial/how-to-disable-google-chrome-automatic-updates.htm This is mostly done, because newer versions of Chrome may cause problems for them. If you had done this yourself you would obviously have been aware and would need to create an exclusion in Malwarebytes settings
  11. Hi Kevin, Finished scanning using the Sophos tool, no detection found. Jeng
  12. Hi still see the error after using the first program, but i can't seem to download the second program...
  13. Now first of all when a product extension is allowed, should there not be a rule to intimate the companies before granting final permissions to host it's product in the web store? Unless the companies too acknowledge the products, than only final clearance be made and why did MS bungle here, w/o verifying with the company on the product? It sucks.
  14. Yes, you would think they'd employ some of that nifty AI/ML tech they're so proud of that they use for tracking users online and to help protect intellectual property, not to mention how they already protect IP on sites like YouTube. I'm certain it would be easy to identify and flag fake add-ons using the same name/company info, images and icons on their download pages, especially since they often just copy/paste the exact description/text as well, much the same way that Google does for movie studios, music publishers and YouTube content creators for copyright claims/flags, except it would be
  15. Everything seems to be running as normal, which is a relief. I was hoping to get to the bottom of the "PUM.OPTIONAL.DISABLECHROMEUPDATES" detection by Malwarebytes, and to make sure there wasn't anything else harmful on my PC. Would you say you're satisfied on the basis of the logs? Thanks for your help 🙂
  16. Second it. A real shocker to me to find that MS store harbors fake extensions and I installed Adguard VPN (w/o second thoughts believing it ti be a Adguard product) and well have to be careful from now on.
  17. Yep, that explains it. Sadly, using reputable companies and products to push PUPs and malware is a common practice and has been for many years (remember all the rogue/fake AVs years ago that pretended to be legitimate Microsoft, Trend Micro, Symantec/Norton products among others?). For a long time now, fake Flash player, QuckTime, Java and other browser plugins/extensions have been found in the wild bundled with PUPs, and I've seen tons of them in the Chrome web store, Mozilla add-ons site and other legitimate sources for extensions and add-ons for browsers, so Microsoft is going to have to
  18. @gonzo : thank you very much, I can access both sites now, I suppose Bryce-tutorials must have done something about it because it was impossible to reach them until now.
  19. Microsoft has a fake extensions problem in its Microsoft Edge Store Microsoft has a fake extensions problem in its Microsoft Edge Store - gHacks Tech News Abusive add-ons aren’t just a Chrome and Firefox problem. Now it’s Edge’s turn Abusive add-ons aren’t just a Chrome and Firefox problem. Now it’s Edge’s turn | Ars Technica Now I see, why I had problems of redirection. I installed Adguard VPN and find it's afake one and no wonder I faced problems, which seemed to vanish after removing extensions.
  20. Okay, will try to follow up over the weekend if I have time. If not then for sure on Monday. Get me new MBST logs and I'll take a look
  21. Thanks for all your help. It's 2am and I got to get some sleep. I was trying to load MB AV from the Miami server, if that helps. It wasn't just the license. I get MBSetup.exe and ran it. I got the Installing box, it paused, and then a message; An error occurred while downloading. Please check your internet connection etc...
  22. Okay, I'll let you go as it's quite late for both of us I think. Please keep me posted about progress on system #1 There is also a lot of good information provided from the following link. I would recommend you bookmark it and review as you have time. Take care, have a wonderful weekend, and stay safe out there. Very glad we were able to get the program working for you. Cheers
  23. I have not experienced that, but if the VPN DNS server is unable to locate one of our main license or update servers I'm sure that can or would happen. I will pass the information along to our QA Team for further research. Thanks
  24. Let me "play" with the first system. If your using TLS, I'll make sure it's loaded, and test again. That system should be upgraded to Win10 soon. Did you know you can't load MB AV with Privacy ON?
  25. If there are no other issues and you're ready, go ahead and get me new logs for Machine #1 and we'll look at cleaning that one up similar.
