  1. Past hour
  2. Regarding your text: That is considered force upgrading before Windows update offers it to you. I would also have uninstalled Avast/AVG as 3rd party AV programs have a very high potential of messing feature updates up. I do not see this as force upgrading but I guess will look at it our own way.
  3. As a side note, I have done almost 40 upgrades to 2004 with no issue. I do have have a couple of clients with Malwarebytes issues and have just downgraded MB to the version I linked and put them on a list when things are finally fixed to contact to re upgrade Malwarebytes to the fixed current version.
  4. Added info: of the 3 Windows device I have running Windows 10 Pro/MBA/Avast/HitmanPro, the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is still 1909 (OS Build 18363.836) will state within Windows Update thru Setting that Version 2004 is not yet ready for the device. The computers current running Windows 10 Pro Version 2004 never showed this notification.
  5. That is considered force upgrading before Windows update offers it to you. I would also have uninstalled Avast/AVG as 3rd party AV programs have a very high potential of messing feature updates up. I am not defending Malwarebytes as there are issues with some configurations at the moment and has been going on for several months and have not been able to be reproduced by the developers.
  6. The computer systems were made up-to-date thru Windows Update Assistant. Of course I made sure to look at the release notes (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/) regarding issue's listed for Version 2004. The Windows Update Assistant was downloaded from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10.
  7. Today
  8. Please restart the computer. Then open Malwarebytes again and run a normal Threat scan and it should create a new log.
  9. Thank you for your suggestion. It has been suggested a few times and is on a list of possible updates.
  10. I have not used those mostly since Win 98. A few times during the XP era. Useless today and just overkill that can lead to conflicts with other security software.
  11. All modern web browsers have options to block cookies if desired, and removing cookies after the fact is pointless as they have already been used to track your activities at that point. The only way to truly defeat tracking cookies is to block them. Malwarebytes Browser Guard blocks many tracking servers for this reason, to safeguard privacy. Beyond that you could try a tool such as Spywareblaster or the Immunize function in Spybot Search & Destroy, however I have not personally used either in some time as they are both quite dated and not as useful as they once were when browsers were less secure than they are now.
  12. Malwarebytes isn't creating a new file because there isn't anything to create. (I guess). It's not giving me the option to export anything as well. The only thing I can attach that has relevance is the file I had submitted previously. NewMalwareB1.txt
  13. Greetings, Unfortunately there is no option to export settings in the home user version of Malwarebytes at this time, however I will pass your feedback on to the Product team for consideration. Thanks
  14. You'll likely have to force the system to shut down by holding down the power button then proceed with the next step. It is the self-protection component preventing you from deleting it manually; technology intended to prevent malicious tampering by malware and hackers.
  15. Hey Kevin, thanks again for your help. I am not getting the popups anymore and the tool says it removed one threat. Let me know if there is anything else I need to do. I have attached the file as well. You the MVP for real. SophosVirusRemovalTool.log
  16. Sorry, I thought that the file I had added was the new. I'm scanning again to make absolute sure. NewMalwareB1.txt
  17. Hi everyone: I noticed recently in the Google app on my phone (the one that curates all of the news/weather/local information) that there has been a recent, long string of youtube videos being processed by the search function. The searches usually follow the syntax of: [video code] -site:youtube.com Does anyone know of any adware/malware/viruses that cycle through various Youtube video id's in the background (my guess is that they are looking to get more video views)? Could this be the videos that I click on in the news feed section of the app? If anyone has any ideas as to what this might be, that would be great. Also, I've attached a screenshot for reference. Thanks, DD
  18. Of course they do. They want you to subscribe to their ad free email service. I actually subscribe to Yahoo business email and since I pay them yearly I do not have any issues. Cookies are harmless. I have not deleted any cookies in years. Buy people will argue about privacy issues with them and PERSONALLY I do not care on any computer I own. I use Firefox and though I have Chrome and the new Edge installed, I only use Firefox for 99.9% of web browsing. I stopped using them when they started to allow some AD's by default few years ago in favor of UBlock Origin. I set Storage Sense on all computers on the following settings.
  19. I ran that scan several times prior to posting my problem here, no positive results. I'm sorry to inform that the problem still exist I'm really convinced that the sites that I mentioned in my OP are causing this issue and I can't stress enough how I would like Malwarebytes to investigate these sites. https://www.scidev.net/asia-pacific/disease/news/oral-polio-drops-linked-to-paralysis-in-india.html https://torrentz2.eu I think they install some code and that you can only delete this by formatting the C: drive in a specific way. And that it is some really smart process since none of the anti-malware programs are able to pick up on this.
  20. Any program/game that has a torrent feature is likely to cause detection's with the Web Protection in Malwarebytes.
  21. Please try running it in Safe Mode . Instructions on booting into Safe Mode can be found here as well as here. Please let us know how it goes. Thanks
  22. I have the exact same periodic unresponsiveness / slowness described by this user while Malwarebytes Real-Time Protection is enabled. I use my computer every day. No issues before updating to Windows 2004 then after updating I immediately experienced periodic slowness / unresponsiveness. It took me forever to figure out why. It was going through resource manager and disabling things that led me down this path where disabling Malwarebytes Real-Time Protection prevented the issue. Periodic application unresponsiveness / slowness. Things would be fine for a couple minutes and then the app would freeze. I could then go and open another app which may or may not freeze. But not all applications had this issue. I could use Fidelity Active Trador Pro all day. But it was difficult to access their website. Lots of timeouts in event viewer. Loading event viewer would sometimes cause an MMC timeout error. Cursor was always responsive.
  23. Like all the previous times before if Ransomware in MBAM is enabled and I start FF up with the profile stored on C:\ which has all the files from the problem profile Firefox is not quarantined/ affect by MBAM.
  24. Malwarebytes doesn't get along well with some component of War Thunder. I was having horrid stuttering both in game and even after the game was closed as well as Trojan detection during updates. So I shut off web protection and voila, performance issues gone. Plus the War Thunder launcher does have a torrent download feature, it could be that causing issues as well.
