    MBAM Premium & MWB chrome browser protection

    Thanks exile, that explains the differences perfectly. I already run ublock orig (a chrome extension) which includes some malware domains, and also tracking protection and ads. I'm not sure about clickbaits though... I think the main benefit for me would be the behavioural detection offered by the extension. Would you think there'd be any problems running ublock orig and the malwarebytes extension together? Oooh and just noticing your signature I see there's one for FF too. Cool, I use both Chrome and FF pretty evenly these days. I also run ublock orig on FF too. (Not sure why my signature isn't showing up anymore....) < ignore, signature showed up in my above post after I'd submitted this one.
  2. Hi. I run MBAM Premium on my computers and chrome is my main browser. I have all real-time shields enabled, which includes website protection. I have seen people on Wilders talk about the Malwarebytes Browser Protection extension for chrome, but I'm not clear if this is just providing the website protection component for free users that MBAM Premium users already have, or if it does other clever things that MBAM Premium doesn't. I saw someone asked the same question in the support section of the extension on the Chrome webstore, but they did not receive a reply. Hence my posting here where hopefully a developer can clarify. Thanks. Basically just wanting to know what/if any benefit having the extension has if you already run the premium version of MBAM.
  3. Any feedback about whether the latest MBAM version (1.0.441) fixes the conflict between MBAM & the latest programme update for avast? I have update MBAM (via install application updates) but don't wish to update avast until I have confirmation from someone that the issue as described by the original poster on this thread have been resolved. Would rather avoid the described workarounds if possible. Thanks.
  4. Well I'm glad about that!! It's a bit over my head lol. Though I do get the gist. :) I hope Malwarebytes will either correct these FPs, or, build in a function to whitelist such entries. Until then I shall do as you've suggested and check the registry and make sure any detected entries are showing a 4 as per the picture. If they are I will add them to exclusions. I can definitely manage that. Thanks for the advice exile, the pictures you've included to go with the explanation are really helpful. :)
  5. Thanks for the reply exile. That all Iooks very complicated in the links you posted. I'm not quite sure what I'm to do to prevent this from happening again. I feel like this is something Malwarebytes should address and create whitelists for rather than us users, surely? I don't want to have to constantly create exclusions, or be in a position where I'm having to decide if something is a legitimate detection or part of something like SpywareBlaster.
  6. Hi. Version 7.2.2.0 detected 42 items on one of my laptops last night. Interestingly, I saw the exact same detections in a post on Wilders here: hxxps://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/adwcleaner-updates-and-discussion-thread.345634/page-19#post-2769246 I then scanned a second Win 10 laptop with AdwCleaner version 7.2.1 and it came back clean. So I immediately downloaded, installed and ran version 7.2.2.0 on the second machine, and lo and behold - the exact same 42 detections came up on that computer too. I then checked the registry of a third computer (not yet scanned with AdwCleaner) and all of those same keys were present on that computer too, along with a lot of other seedy looking keys referencing adult material, so I wondered if these were part of some kind of blocklist that was supposed to be there and actually protecting my computers. I then checked SpywareBlaster on all three computers, and protection was only partially enabled under the "Restricted Sites" on the two computers I had scanned with version 7.2.2.0 and allowed the programme to clean. There were exactly 42 unprotected sites on both those computers - the same number of detections in AdwCleaner. 7.2.2.0. On the third computer that had not been scanned - SpywareBlaster showed all protection as fully enabled. To confirm my suspicions I ran 7.2.2.0 on the 2 machines with partially enabled protection and they came up clean, but as soon as I enabled all protection in SpywareBlaster on the "Restricted Sites" field, and then re-ran AdwCleaner version 7.2.2.0, those same 42 detections appeared again. So it would seem that AdwCleaner is detecting stuff from SpywareBlaster's blocklists. Here is the log file from computer number 1. Computer 2 is identical except it's running Win 10 Home not Pro. Thanks. AdwCleaner[S02].txt

    Windows Defender + MBAM running both

    Thank-you porthos. I already found that FAQ and added MBAM folders and files to the Windows Defender exclusions, but the question was for the other way around - which folders and files belonging to Windows Defender to I add to MBAMs exclusions section. I gather from replies above I don't need to worry, however this is not what my understanding used to be from info on this forum about running MBAM Pro & an AV both in realtime. You had to add exclusions to both programmes, not just one.

    Windows Defender + MBAM running both

    Thanks nikhils, I have already enabled that option to let Windows Action Centre Choose which to register, but that's not quite what I mean. I thought there were files I needed to add to MBAM Exclusion list to prevent conflicts, as both software are running with realtime shields enabled. This was always the recommendation on my past installations when running and AV + AM together - has this changed now?
  9. Hi forum. I'm just setting up a new Win 10x64 CU laptop. I'm keeping Windows Defender as my AV and running MBAM PRO alongside. I have found the Malwarebytes folders and files to add to Windows Defender Exclusions through a forum search, but I cannot find a list of the Windows Defender folders and files to add to MBAM's Exclusion list. Can anyone help? Thanks.
