  1. I don't have limewire installed and I don't think I have any P2P software installed. By the way, what is the definition of P2P sofware?
  2. prairie dog: I read the link in your post. It says: "When you ask your browser to connect to a website, Windows uses DNS or the HOSTS file (depending on configuration), to convert that domain name into it's corresponding IP address (e.g. example.com <> MBAM intercepts the packet communications, to determine whether or not the IP address is known for malicious activity, and if so, blocks the communication." But I'm getting these IP Protection messages even when my browser is not open. My OS is XP Home SP3
  3. For the past several weeks I have been getting "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware IP Protection: Infection Detected" pop-up message from the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware icon in the notification area. And lately I have been getting them more frequently. I one got this morning at 8.56.45 AM that said "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware IP Protection: Infection Detected:". I also got two other pop-up messages this morning, one at 8.41.33 AM for and another at 8.43.17 AM for What is causing these messages and what am I supposed to do about them?
  4. I am encouraged by the comment from AdvancedSetup that an enhancement to have a user interface to permit full scan scheduling for paid users would be nice. Not to belabor the effectiveness of a quick scan vs. a full scan, but I did compare the the elapsed times of the two scans. The elapsed time for a quick scan was 4 minutes, 7 seconds. The elapsed time for a full scan was 43 minutes, 53 seconds. Now I'm neither a developer nor a security expert and I don't know the internal workings of the software, but from the scan times it looks like a full scan is doing a more thorough scan.
  5. I agree with TomP Malwarebytes' should be updated to have a user interface to permit scheduling a full scan. I purchased a license to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware because of the C|Net download.com Editor's high rating and the Editor's note the scheduler for updates and scans is restricted to the paid version. In all my spyware removal software I always run full scans and schedule them to run when my computer would normally be sitting idle. After I registered Malwarebytes' I was disappointed that I could only schedule an update and a quick scan. Using Help I did find something about using Command Line Parameters but it didn't make any sense to me. And I don't feel comfortable using the Windows Task Scheduler. I'm not sure what YoKenny1 means when he refers to a 'casual user'. I'm quite serious about my computer's security and I consider anything less than a full to be not adequate. If I had know I couldn't schedule a full scan I wouldn't have bought a license.
