  1. Seems like MBAM only provides HTTP scanning so PeerBlock is still needed: http://forums.peerblock.com/read.php?8,5696,5698
  2. So I noticed in the past that while downloading torrents (not illegal or copyrighted torrents but legit stuff), MBAM usually blocks a lot of connections which is good I suppose? Anyway, I stopped using MBAM Pro about 6 months ago and now I wanna use it again but recently I have discovered a program called PeerBlock which blocks research companies and such from connecting to you and finding what you're doing. So my question is, do I need PeerBlock if I am using MBAM Pro? or do they find different things? Any conflicts you would think from them both running together? I just formatted and did
  3. I've seen guides that show how to do this but that was for MBAM 1.7; now I see that MBAM has a lot more files in its folder so I don't know which ones excactly need to be excluded? Can someone post a step by step guide on how to do this with the new MBAM please? Thanks
  4. oh thanks man how come none of my other AVs detected those? neither KIS nor NOD32 nor Norton nor Bitdefender
  5. Well I didn't mean that literally bro what I meant, is it comes in my way and my daily workflow. Never had a virus in my life. but to me, Emsisoft is a virus
  6. Iniitially it was ok for me to report an FP because they respond quickly and whitelist the file. Then it started irritiating me, stuff like my VPN (Private Internet Access) which no other AV has reported is being flaved as a virus, finem they whitelist it, next comes SVP (smooth video project) since it injects itself into the media player to give you 60 FPS playback, the behavioral blocker detects it as a virus. They whitelist it, but then every other update which happen automatically btw, and the file gets flagged again...... then I was really annoyed... the AV was getting in my way more th
  7. alright thanks man, that's what I was simply asking
  8. I understand I'm not asking to comment on the above mentioned AVs I am simply asking if MBAM + Windows Defender is enough for my usage habits that I have explained to you and my current setup What would you do? Would you run MSE + MBAM Pro or would you choose another AV?
  9. I added the Windows Defender to MBAM exclusion lists is that right? to add the entire folder? or shall I just add the Windows defender.exe? Why are there 2 folders for Windows defender? one 32 bit and the other 64 bit in program files / program files (x86) shall I excluse both?.
  10. When I asked if MBAM Pro is enough on its own I was told that it wasn't and should only be a complement to an AV But my problem is I have tried every single AV out there and each one has its quircks. So would MSE + MBAM be a good enough solution? Mind you I also use Pale Moon + Adblock Plus + Disconnect + LastPass and I don't have a cracks on my computer all the software I have is purchased and licenses legally. I want to have a light solution that is good enough but won't give me problems NOD32 = Very heavy since v7 and it has problems that corrupt my Outlook 2010 or 2013 profile th
  11. I am seeing popups while downloading torrents like the image attached what is this site that uTorrent is trying to connect to? Does MBAM slow down my torrent downloads?
  12. I tried following this guide but I cannot mbamgui.exe I think that's because the guide is based on the older MBAM? I found 2 new exe files so I added them but I am not sure if I should have: Also, in MBAM, can you tell me what are the step by step instructions to set the exclusions for Windows Defender?

  14. I have Norton AV installed as its given me the least performance loss of the ones I tried like Kaspersky, NOD32, Bitdefedner My problems are: Norton AV = On Windows 8.1 it has an annoying bug that would make you get two of the same taskbar icon, looks very ugly but no other quirks Kaspersky AV = 2014 and 2015 each have their own bugs, I wouldn't ever install Kaspersky again even though I have a 3 year license Bitdefender AV = that should be called Bitdefender Virus not Antivirus, it's very buggy NOD32 = The once lightest AV is now the heaviest! the moment I have it installed I feel l
  15. can you please change my username from berryracer to MaXimus thanks
  16. You can't setup exclusions in Webroot, so that makes me wonder shall I even bother installing my lifetime license of PRo with MBAM v2? did MBAM do anything to imrpove compatibility with other AVs? do I need to setup the exclusions in MBAM to excluse webroot? webroot's folder is only 743 KB in size as all the scanning is done in the cloud
  17. keeping users safe from a crack that doesn't do any harm?? riiiiight this makes me not trust your product and stick to the big security names that know what they're doing Kaspersky, having a consisten track record in the AV Comparatives tests as shown here for detecting 100% of the viruses and 0 false positives never detects these as either viruses or cracks, they pass the detection see here: AV-Comparatives - Real World Tests so please your justification doesn't make sense. Users WANT to be informed if a crack or activator is actually harmful, but there is no sense in simply detecting
  18. exactly why I stopped using MBAM! and this enforces my detection! Thank you, I own a computer website / forum and will let people know how MBAM is the highest FP security product out there. Thank you for your fast and useless replies.
  19. so MBAM is for detecting cracks or real viruses? This is why I don't use MBAM even though I have a lifetime license, I just wish it could really tell me when I have a virus not a bunch of activator or harmless tracks at the end of the day, MBAM is not DMCA, it's a security product to detect threats I do understand that some activators or "cracks" are really harmful and thus I wanted to report these to differentiate between the threats and leave the cracks part to its own
  20. I don't need help with pirated software, I just wanna start using my lifetime license for MBAM but so many false positives I love how MBAM works to remove threats I just wish it removes real viruses not FPs man Again, I don't want help with pirated software, this is about saying a file is harmful when it may or may not really be so
