  1. Malwarebytes Upgrade Harassment

    LoL that's pure gold. I killed the new installation file once, I'll see how many times it comes back. As far as toying with the registry... If there's a key that needs some manual tweaking. That's fine with me. I know what I'm doing.
  2. Malwarebytes Upgrade Harassment

    That makes sense, no rush. I guess if I find the downloaded package I can simply nuke it? I didn't have a positive experience with 3.0 and I want to give it more time to mature before I try it again.
  3. Malwarebytes Upgrade Harassment

    Please explain. I unchecked harassment box (prior to) and I still get harassed.
  4. I stand corrected. It doesn't jump on the eyes but you are absolutely right. (...)I have tried Malwarebytes 3.0 but want to go back to MBAM 2.2.1 If for whatever reason you want to downgrade to MBAM 2.2.1 and wait for a new version of 3.0, you can do so easily. Simply uninstall Malwarebytes 3.0, reboot and then download and install MBAM 2.2.1 from here.
  5. Thanks - adding it to 2.X FAQ is a more than fair alternative.
  6. What have I gained with MBAM 3

    ^The gain in bugs got me back to 2.x... Nevermind running faster, I'll give another try to 3.x once it learned how to walk without falling
  7. Hi there, Having known and already reported issues with 3.0 I decided to revert back to 2.X I couldn't find the previous version on Malwarebytes site. If it's there... It's not obvious to find. Reverting back to 2.X was not a simple install over. I'm not backed up running 2.x and happy again. Can you add to the 3.0 FAQ a download link to the last stable 2.x version and maybe a small description of the procedure to downgrade to 2.X? Thanks
  8. Problems with start and web protection

    Add me to the list of affected users. :-( Web Protection in the GUI stays at STARTING and never starts. Then Real-Time Protection Layers turned off shows up in the notification tray.
  9. 3.0 Exploit-Protection enabled with EMET running

    Thanks again for your reply. I just noticed the advanced settings for EP For now I tend to vote for EMET as the main exploit mitigation tool as it is more "time proven" (at least in term of stability) I will use 3.0EP only for my browsers and see how it goes over time.
  10. 3.0 Exploit-Protection enabled with EMET running

    Thanks for your reply Durew, I know EMET and 3.0EP are not using signatures, that's why I used "Module" as even libraries could have been also confused with Signatures. I'm curious to know more about how to run them both without conflicts. As of now EMET prevented launching every processes enabled in both EMET and 3.0EP. I didn't research much about the levels of protection offered by 3.0EP. Its GUI only provide a single ON/OFF per process/programs. Compared to EMET that has a checkbox for every of the 14 types of attacks. EMET is more tweakable when it comes to misbehavior with a given process/program.
  11. 3.0 Exploit-Protection enabled with EMET running

    News flash... EMET does not let me open WinWord when 3.0EP is enabled for WinWord. Disabling EP for winword solved the problem. Which partially answer my question. ie EP and EMET (option 3 above) is not a good idea at least when they are both monitoring the same processes. I guess I will opt for the one that is updated the most often and includes more current attacks. EMET is updated more or less once a year. What about the Malwarebytes EP module? (I know malware signatures are updated almost everyday)
  12. Hello guys, Sorry if it's a repost, I searched the forum "Malwarebytes 3.0" for EMET and the search engine returned most of pre 3.0 results. I'm a long time EMET user currently running 5.51, now that 3.0 comes with some sort of EP. I wonder. I had very little issues with EMET. Since I installed 3.0 (yesterday) I now have EMET who wants to sends a report to MS. WinWord is not even running. -<Exploit Code="7"> <App>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE</App> <Module>C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\WINWORD.EXE</Module> <Registers ESP="e2f3d0" EBP="e2f45c" EDI="e79a68" ESI="1" EDX="0" ECX="b0c78311" EBX="6df7f1c3" EAX="0"/> (...) </Exploit> So what's is the best bet for the better blend of performance, stability and security. 3.0EP without EMET EMET without 3.0EP or EMET + 3.0EP I'm not a fan of running real time protection from different companies in parallel... Always a good recipe for conflict and instability.
  13. I guess that One could be me... Thanks ;-)
