  1. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Can you provide more detail on what happened - error messages etc? Are you using Defender or a 3rd party antivirus?
  2. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Thanks Devin, that's good to know.
  3. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Yes I should have mentioned that.
  4. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    Yes Windows Update will automatically update your system but it could be days or weeks after 17th, as they roll it out. But you can get the update manually. It's a good idea to uninstall Malwarebytes prior to Windows Fall Creators Update 1709, then reinstall Malwarebytes after the update. If there are any compatibility issues between the two Exploit protections, you can either: 1. Turn off exploit protection in Malwarebytes; or 2. Change the Exploit protection settings in Windows: Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Defender > Open Windows Defender Security Centre. Then click on App & browser control and scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Exploit Protection settings. There are 5 System settings and some Program settings that you can change. I would recommend saving the default System and Program settings before changing them (there is a "Save settings" option at the bottom of both tabs). Hopefully we will hear from Malwarebytes staff regarding their recommendations.
  5. Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

    This has been raised in the Anti-Exploit Beta forum a couple of months ago, so they are aware of the issue, but have not commented so far. But Oct 17 is not that far off.
  6. Not fixed on mine.
  7. Hello @Max-H Yes that would be the reason you are not seeing the option. My test computers have HDDs. With SSDs - having Fast startup disabled would help prolong the life.
  8. On two Win 10 (current version) computers with MB installed, I have had instances where on Windows shut down, Windows Update presents with "Getting Windows ready, don't turn off your computer" - the computer remains stuck on that message (with rotating circle) and I have to force power down. On restart there is no indication of a update waiting and nothing relevant in update history. I noticed this thread which may be associated.
  9. Hi @Max-H and @Santos117 Well I can consistently get it to fail on three different computers, two with the current release of Windows 10, the third with the latest Insider version. Doesn't matter if clean install or over the top install of MB I will re-state a better test sequence so the conditions are clearer. Sequence: 1. Ensure Windows Fast Startup is turned ON Control Panel > Power options > Choose what the power buttons do > If "Turn on fast start-up (recommended)" is ticked, go to 2. If "Turn on fast start-up (recommended)" is off, click "Change settings that are currently unavailable" > tick "Turn on fast start-up (recommended)" 2. Install Malwarebytes, if not already installed 3. In Malwarebytes Protection settings, turn OFF "Start Malwarebytes at Windows Startup" 4. RESTART the computer - Malwarebytes (correctly) does not startup 5. Manually start Malwarebytes 6. SHUT DOWN the computer 7. Start the computer - Malwarebytes incorrectly starts up automatically
  10. Hey @Santos117 Is this issue associated with the bug I reported here: I just discovered that this bug (ie If the setting "Start Malwarebytes at Windows Startup" is turned off and Malwarebytes is running when Windows is shut down, on Windows startup Malwarebytes will incorrectly start with Windows) happens with the current version of Windows 10 (1703 build 15063.502), both 32 and 64 bit versions, with Malwarebytes
  11. I just installed the latest Windows 10 Insider build 16257.rs3-release.170728-1700 x 32bit Same issue with Malwarebytes.
