  1. I have also been having this problem with Malwarebytes when using Chrome. On a given day, I might get up to a dozen notices from Malwarebytes telling me that it has blocked access to filtering.fastsearch.me, as seen in the graphic. The notices are not annoying but I would like to know if there is an issue with Chrome. I do not get the messages using Opera and possibly not using Edge, Firefox or Vivaldi.

  2. I have had no issues with programs to date on the PC concerned but if the problem persists I will do this.
  3. This incident started with Malwarebytes 4.1.2 application being unresponsive in Windows (Win 10/2004 64bit) when launched from the desktop icon. The following messages started appearing in Event Viewer I originally posted an incident at https://www.tenforums.com/antivirus-firewalls-system-security/162162-malwarebytyes-refuses-open.html#post1989249 and have since used the Repair Tool to reinstall MB which is now open and scanning.

  6. Hello i have recently installed MB 3.3.1 on A windows 10 PC but I find that the context menu is unavailable. It is not appearing regardless of the setting below: How can this be resolved? Thanks Martin O'Shea.
  7. In any case, thanks to Zynthesist, AprilA and the other respondents to this thread.
  8. Can you explain what online-metrix.net is? Is it a legitimate web site or not? Why did MB show these messages all of a sudden?
  9. @Zynthesist: Can you explain what is going on? What is online-metrix.net? Is it a legitimate web site or not? Why has MB shown these messages all of a sudden?
  10. @AprilA: I also have a Windows 7 laptop networked with the Windows 10 PC. The laptop appears to be unaffected though. It is a rum do!
  11. @AprilA: I would be cautious here and tend to think it could be a false positive. If MB is off, then it will not report any messages. I still think it is Flash related. The sooner that program is consigned to the dustbin of history, the better.
