  1. You are correct. I was already on version 4.1 of Malwarebytes. I wish that rather than shutting down Malwarebytes completely I had tried turning off the individual protections one at a time. That might have given you folks a bit more to go on as far as where to look for the issue.
  2. Requested files attached. Thanks for following up on this issue. mbst-grab-results.zip
  3. Solution to 1Password updates not completing: Whitelist the 1Password directory with Malwarebytes. You can find the 1Password directory at C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\1password. If you need the full path, open 1Password and go to the Help Menu > Troubleshooting > Reveal 1Password directory in Explorer.
  4. I use a password program called 1Password. It checks for updates and then updates the program. It only does this when it is in the "locked" state. Came back to my laptop this afternoon to find a window/screen advising that the 1Password update could not be completed and to check if any browsers were active. They were not. I quit Malwarebytes and 1Password finished the update. Not sure what to add to the "allow" list in Malwarebytes to have this not happen again. If one of the developers could advise, that would be great. Just as a side note, that "allow" list in V4 has certainly grown to somet
  5. Porthos, I found this on the Windows 10 Forums regarding this very issue: If you get this issue (Macrium Reflect slowdown), it's real easy to fix. Two entries in the MBAM exception list: 1) Program Files\Macrium (as a folder) 2) Program Data\Macrium (as a folder, the Service is in here) I'll end up adding the folders above until such time as there is a fix.
  6. Porthos, as far as issues, just a few minor items that I've seen posted here as well. Firefox tends to be slower with internet connection drops at least a couple of time a day. I also use Macrium Reflect for image backups (weekly full/daily differential) and the time to perform either a full or differential image has increased by at least 50%. All of this is reproducible by turning Malwarebytes on/off. Again, so far none of these issues have caused me to revert to V3, but it has been on my mind. In closing let me say that I have been a Malwarebytes Pro (along side Windows Defender as my o
  7. I've had a few issues with version 4 (few solved, a couple not) and I've been following the posts here on a regular basis. In the end, many of the responses suggest reverting back to V3. If one does in fact make the decision revert back to V3 (and turns off the reminders to upgrade) how long will V3 be supported and will that support (updates) include the most recent threat protections?
  8. @LiquidTension Thank you, work around solution works perfectly!
  9. Log file attached. "Bat" file that clears the Event Viewer (do this a couple of times a week) is as follows: :: Created by: Shawn Brink :: Created on: August 15th 2016 :: Updated on: July 25th 2018 :: Tutorial: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/16588-clear-all-event-logs-event-viewer-windows.html @echo off FOR /F "tokens=1,2*" %%V IN ('bcdedit') DO SET adminTest=%%V IF (%adminTest%)==(Access) goto noAdmin for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO (call :do_clear "%%G") echo. echo All Event Logs have been cleared! goto theEnd :do_clear echo clear
  10. I have an elevated cmd prompt that clears the Windows 10 Event Viewer Log. It has worked perfectly for years, takes less than 30 seconds to run. Since the release of the latest version of Malwarebytes this function has slowed down noticeably as it now takes a couple of minutes to run. It functions perfectly again if I exit Malwarebytes. Once I pinpointed that, I started to turn off the individual protections to see which one of them was the issue. Found that it's the "Ransomware Protection" that is causing the issue. The issue is reproducible. Turn it on and cmd prompts run slow, turn if off a
  11. Thanks. I did in fact have BitDefender once installed but opted for another product. That explains the files that were deleted.
  12. Latest version took care of the Xmarks issue. The scan report is below. Is there any way to tell what the two files are? Does JRT put these files in a specific location, or are they just deleted (did not show up in Trash after scan).

  13. Was following this topic and ended up downloading the mbam-check utility via the above posted link. Ran the utility (out of curiosity), read the report, and on the next shut down/startup Malwarebytes Anti-Malware started in the "free" version. I needed to re-enter my ID and registration code to reactivate my Pro license. Any other reports of this, or possibly this is the intended result?
  14. Thank you to both the Malwarebytes folks and Bitsum for looking into this issue. Seems that the thoughts regarding cause/effect seem to be pointing to an older (2009) machine with an outdated (painfully slow by today's standards) CPU. I'll have to address this with my wife as it is she who sets the home budgets The other security programs I have running are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit and Windows Defender. This PC laptop obviously came new loaded with Windows 7. When I upgraded (?) to Windows 10 I did it via a "clean install" and surprisingly, the performance (sta
  15. Just so I am clear, as in "crystal" from one of my favorite movies . . . log-in through an Administrator's account. <===IMPORTANT! Does this web page cover the subject of the Windows 10 "hidden" Admin account creation correctly? http://www.ghacks.net/2014/11/12/how-to-enable-the-hidden-windows-10-administrator-account/ If so, I will give it my best shot.
