  1. Hi gkar, Now you mention it, a piece of malware could send messages without your knowledge, so checking for an infection wouldn't be a bad idea.. If you want to make sure you are not infected I'd recommend turning to the malware removal part of this forum. It deals with "am I infected?"-questions as well. I advise to read this post first, it explains what steps to take before posting. That way everything runs more smoothly. If they give a clean bill of health you're good. It would give me more confidence than yet another anti-malware/virus scan. I hope this helps. Regards, Durew
  2. Hi gkar, When I get such messages it is from my e-mail provider. Generally because I try to mail something to a non-exsistant mail-adres. (Mostly due to typo's). Could this be the cause of your problem? Regards, Durew
  3. I support this suggestion
  4. Found it.
  5. I guess so. Recently I saw a message from staff somewhere indicating that Tarun's solution will be implemented later on. (Don't recal where)
  6. Hi axkazex93, The principle behind a lot of exploit mechanisms can be found in the user manual of EMET. You can download it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=50802 I hope this will help, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I can't promise I can answer them though. Regards, Durew (not an IT student nor an IT professional)
  7. @Tarun Won't turning off anti-exploit or anti-ransomeware trigger continuous warning messages? I've heard quite a few people asking around on the forum asking how to disable these warning messages, only to be told it is impossible (and will continue to be impossible).
  8. Hi promidi, If you set the language to English (U.K.) the dates wil be displayed as you proposed. I hope this helped. If you have any questions, please ask. Regards, Durew
  9. Hi STAR, Can you explain at what point you do not understand the directions? We could try to walk you through it. Regards, Durew
  10. Hi Cabizzi, Did you just start a new topic here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/193954-real-time/ Regards, Durew
  11. Hi LinkinForcer, Malwarebytes only scans files that can be executed. Virusscanners tend to scan just 'n about every file it can find. As such, that the number of files scanned by malwarebytes is lower than that of your virusscanner is normal. I hope this awnsers your question. If you have any questions (left), feel free to ask. Regards, Durew
  12. Hi mohawk, Officially it is not a known issue, as it is not in the 'known issues' topic. Then again, I've seen the problem more often over here and used to encounter it myself. (I don't know why it got better.) I suggest you start your own topic about the problem with the realtime protection you experience so that those better versed in these kind of problems can help you solve it. Regards, Durew
  13. Hi filipanton, On my computer the service uses about 243 MB. So I'd say it probably normal, maybe a tad high but not excessive. It staff or expert disagrees with me than they are right. Regards, Durew
  14. Hi Cabizzi, Could you post the list of steps they ask you to take so we can talk you through it? Regards, Durew
  15. Hi DeGraff and anyone looking into this, On my computer (windows 10 Pro) the registry key value of the key mentioned before is C:\PROGRAM FILES\MALWAREBYTES\ANTI-MALWARE\mbamtray.exe So on my computer the slashes seem to be correct. How bad it is that the quotation marks are not there I do not know. I hope this helps anyone (probably staff) to get this bug/issue resolved. Regards, Durew
