  1. Hi exile360, Thank you for your explanation. I think that I will leave well enough alone since MB & NS have worked well together. I would never know this happens except for reading NS history report as no flags ever come up & it seems that it refers to only the one same file over & over.
  2. Thank you Firefox for the fast reply, I do not think that I have a tech issue, but it does not hurt to check. Attached mbst-grab-results Kent mbst-grab-results.zip
  3. Hello, I am using MB 3.4.5 Premium & I have not had any problems with it. I also use Norton Security, & Win 10, spring update (1803). I have never entered any exclusion in MB or NS & have used both programs for years. Should there be exclusions set because of the following? Norton Security history log shows a continual blocking (although it never triggers a flag) of: PROGRAM FILES\MALWAREBYTES\ANTI-MALWARE\MBAMSERVICE.EXE With the target being: PROGRAM FILES\NORTON SECURITY WITH BACKUP\ENGINE\\NORTON SECURITY.EXE (Norton also says no action required & I have just ignored this for as long as I can remember). (Screenshots showing Norton blocking the above are attached). Would Malwarebytes or Norton run any differently if this block did not occur? Does this block just prevent the file from being scanned & might it have something to do with the backup being out on a cloud? Everything else appears to be normal & there are no problems that I can see. Thank you, Kent
  4. Good Morning, (Los Angeles, CA time) I found out a while back that fast start, Norton, & Malwarebytes, at times do not get along. When a windows update/upgrade is pushed fast start is turned on by default & again needs to be turned off should you not want it to run. I find that fast start at times can also affect the release of memory & can lead to a slow almost unusable computer. Leaving your computer on 24 hours with no shut down also can make a difference. Right now it seems that with fast start on, they are working OK with each other. Fast start changes both the shutdown time & the boot time. When I time the difference between on or off it is not enough to cause a concern as long as computer is working OK, & I can wait the few seconds difference. Win 10 (spring update 1803), MB Premium, NS Premium, Firefox
  5. Hello, I have been using MB3.4.5 for a few days now & it shows all protections & settings working perfectly & as setup. As shown in Windows , Norton security & MB are both running (as anti virus programs) & in the register Malwarebytes is set to let it make the choice. Is that the way to leave it? or should MB be set to never register? Screen grabs attached. Thanks again, & it looks like I am running OK Kent.
  6. Hi Ron, I ran the cleanup utility & downloaded 3.4.5 with no problem, everything looks to be running OK. I also ran a scan with rootkit enabled & it ran OK. I noticed that the Heuristics analysis part of scan runs way faster than in the old MBAM I was using. In case needed I am attaching the mb-clean-results & new FRST scans. Thanks again for your help, & is there anything else I should do? Kent mb-clean-results.txt FRST.txt Addition.txt
  7. Hi, The MB-Clean how to use it instructions says will backup license for 3.x only! So, should I first deactivate my license in MBAM 2 & then run the cleanup ? I want to make sure so as not to have to deal with a too many in use re license. Thanks again, Kent
  8. Good Morning Ron, I will do the upgrade. Will the MB clean tool uninstall the other MB programs I have running or does that need to be done separately? Also do my FRST logs show any problems that need taken care of?
  9. FRST files attached Kent FRST.txt Addition.txt
  10. Hi Ron, I have not yet tried to download or run MB3, I am still using the out of date MBAM Premium which is why I asked you how best to proceed. I do follow the forum & would hope not to run into any of the problems that are posted re: MB3 & that has probably kept me from changing before now. Using the old MBAM & other beta programs along with Norton Security has worked well for me. Not to confuse things more, I also have never had to add any exclusions to Norton & would need to know those also. Appreciate your time & help. Thank you, Kent Note: Of course I would have change versions sooner if the updated database versions were not available.
  11. Hello Ron, I run MBAM 2 so before I start do I need to first uninstall the MB programs that are in use on my computer . These are running: Anti Exploit Beta, Anti Ransomware Beta, & MBAM premium,. I also have the Anti ransomware Beta Program on my computer (scan results said clean) The driver that did not load was in the MBAM 2 threat scan. Thank you, Kent (irhere)
  12. Hello, Do I have a problem? System is: Win 10, MBAM premium MBAE (beta) MBAR (beta) Norton Security I have not yet tried to run or use MB3 & stops the scan. With Rootkit unchecked the scan runs & shows no detections. (although the scan log shows Rootkit enabled, even though it did not run.) Up until now I have not had any problem running with Rootkit enabled.
