  1. This update really reduced the slow down I was experiencing with a few things on my computer. I still notice a slight delay when right clicking file explorer and using the jump list to open a specific folder I have pinned but it is about half the delay from before the update. If you tweak it even more for the next release, it will be perfect for me. Great job!

    @exile360 The new component update today helped take some of slow down away. It is not bad at all now. I can still tell but it isn't bad enough like before when I would exit totally before doing work in File Explorer. Much better and I love having Bitdefender & Malwarebytes running together. Super locked down. 😎

    I am using Bitdefender free version and Malwarebytes Premium latest version. I did completely uninstall Malwarebytes and rebooted before I installed Bitdefender. The only thing I can mention as an issue is not related to the two of them working together. Malwarebytes adds a significant delay to some things on my PC. This occurs with or without Bitdefender running at the same time. It is only a few things that the slow down bothers me with so I can live with it until the next update. Bitdefender nor Malwarebytes have any exclusions for the other on my system. They work in perfect harmony.

    False Positive I think

    Welcome fr33tux .... I was scared at first but after checking everything, it is fine.

    Apparently this detection is related to a tiny ad for their other products that appears in the lower right corner. I excluded it and all is well.

    I use a program called Wise Disk Cleaner 9. Adwcleaner keeps detecting folder in my C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\Wise Euask after I have run Wise Disk Cleaner. There is nothing in the folder even after running the program. It just creates the folder and then Adwcleaner is detecting it. Any feedback on this would be appreciated.

    Bèta 3.5 so far so good.

    Same results here. I am running the new beta on Windows 10 1803 v17134.1 and it is running great. I don't seem to have as much of a delay rebooting now as I did with the regular version of Malwarebytes. I really like the new GUI as well. Great job guys!

    Winsock reset?

    I ran the basic repair last night after I backing up my PC just to test it out. I rebooted and saw no ill effects from it. I turned the Basic Repair options to all OFF afterwards. I cannot say for sure if it will mess up anything on yours, but it didn't bother mine. I only had two options enabled for Basic Repair: Delete Tracing Keys and Winsock Reset when I ran it.

    No, just my Windows drive. It takes about 3-4 minutes for me to image it.

    A great idea with restore point. I make a complete image before installing anything that might cause a mess with my system. I had no idea a portable version that only runs(doesn't install) could intrude into my system that far. I will never use their program again.

    I just deleted the file from my data drive. It was only there. and the way is what I posted above. It was not an installed program. It was a portable version that you just run. That's what really ticked me off. I didn't install anything with it and it thought it was cool to install drivers and services on my system. Worst part is I could have just downloaded that version, ran it once to make sure all was clean and then deleted it. It would have left services, drivers, registry entries and files in my Windows folder, windows\system32 folder as well as auto runs that cannot be deleted without admin permissions.

    Gotta be careful with Zemana. I used the portable version until today. Noticed a post on another forum about it leaving behind things. It will leave 2 drivers on your system even if you delete the portable version. This can lead to BSOD which I got when trying out BitDefender(most likely why). I had to use Autoruns from Microsoft to find the ZAM drivers, then delete files from my C:\ drive and clean out my registry. That is not what I would call a portable program.

    Newbie Question

    Wow, that's good to know. I did not know it was possible.

    Newbie Question

    A user needs to be logged in for any program to run. Windows might have the power to run things at that point but a user installed program will not.
