  2. Do you have a Smart Phone ? Amazon Kindle ?
  3. Do you have a Android based Cell/Smart Phone ? Maybe the "Android Debug Bridge" ? https://www.androidauthority.com/about-android-debug-bridge-adb-21510/ EDIT: https://www.xspdf.com/resolution/59131356.html

  7. What file formats and why can't you author the video in the intended format ?
  8. I believe that when scanning an Archive file, MBAM will go only X layers deep and MBAM will not count files in the Archive and just display a scan of 1 file representing the Archive [ ZIP, RAR, 7zip, CAB and MSI ].
  9. The simple answer -- No. I'll compare it to having a bully in your neighbourhood. You write poetry, sonnets and stories in notebooks. That bully has gotten a hold of some of your writings. Replacing the notebooks with new ones won't mitigate the issue. You'd have to change your habits of how you store and move those notebooks around as well as any/all interactions with that bully. In your case understanding mitigating cyber threats and how you interact with technology is the key to your solution. It begins with understanding what is a computer "virus" is and how it compares and
  10. I'm sorry, you have misinterpreted what has transpired. I did not ban you. If you were presently banned, you would not be here. Based upon your initial post, I brought your post to the attention of the Forum Administrator .. Who is not just the Forum Administrator but is also a Malwarebytes' Employee. He has the ability to deal with such issues and he has not been online during this time frame. Please have patience for him to look into your issue.
  11. I have been in deep cogitation over this all night. Just because of the Human manifestation of pareidolia, I don't want you to give up on the belief of having a Guardian Angel. There are two kinds of Angels that I know of. The first kind walk among us. They are those who run towards danger whilst the vast majority of people are running away from it. They are the people who are confronted with a complex situation that is forked with an easy and not so righteous solution and the other more difficult path that is righteous. They take the difficult path even though it is hard but bec

  16. If you do not open data files from email you are not expecting, you are safe. If someone sends you email with an attachment or a link to a document and you do not know them, delete the email. If someone sends you email with an attachment or a link to a document and you do know them and were not expecting a document or a link to a document, do NOT open the document. Send them an email asking if they sent the email, why and what's in the document. As a cautionary rule... Always corroborate information before you act. Don't just act upon it.
  17. Achy fakey heart By: Jim Kreidler,Consumer Education Specialist, FTC "You’ve heard of romance scams. But do you know how they happen?

They can be on specific web sites or are generated as a Push Notification If you are on an Apple iPhone or MAC, you will see a malvertisement geared for Apple.
