  1. Okay, got it. For a layman it seems a bit silly to validate a lapsed certificate by a counter signature (instead of updating the certificate). But, I'm sure there is a reason for it. Thanks!
  2. Thanks! So far it seems they are playing nicely together. We'll see what the guys at the Symantec forum say. Different issue, Security Certificates: whereas MBAE has valid certificates, I just noted that MBARW has outdated certificates (both Sha1 and Sha256). How come?
  3. Thanks for that! I have excluded the folder C:\Program Files\Norton Security for now. If that's too broad, let me know. (I use Norton Security "basic", aka NAV, by choice.) Norton Security "dumps" folders/files all over the place, so in case there are other locations or files, let me know too. As for the revers issue, excluding MBARW and/or MBAE from Norton, I'll check on that next time I visit Norton's support forum.
  4. Solved: removed the link in the Startup Folder and all works fine. It turned out to be a non-issue.
  5. I put a link in the W10 Startup Folder and the prog starts fine, but with the UI (show MBARW) loaded. How can I set the prog to start silently w/o the UI, like the way MBAE starts? Thanks.
  6. Just installed MBARW "arw-setup-consumer-" on a w10 (1809) where I have MBAE and NAV running. Any suggestions on what programs to exclude to optimize run-ability and performance?
  7. Good point! I can always try the free and register later. Or, maybe just reinstall v. (this is a joke...)!
  8. Thanks. I suppose I have to install v.3 and play with the options to see if that's what I want. We'll see. Not a waist of a paid license, imo. I'm paying (and have for years) to use (Beta) MBAE. My choice. Somehow the MB guys need money too .. and if most people run only free we may not get the support we need. 😉
  9. Thinking of it, I'm not sure it's such a small subset. Lots and lots of people use MBAM as a demand scanner in parallel with another virus scanner like Norton-Symantec (which I have used since the days of Peter Norton and PCDOS). That said, I use other on demand scanners like MBAR Rootkit, HitmanPro, SuperAntispyware, etc., so I'm okay (famous last word...) regardless.
  10. Thanks. Not ideal, but, it should work. Alternatively, as I don't like "upgrade-nudging", if I install a licensed version of MBAM, how do I set the program options if I want demand scanning only (which allows reinstall of MBAE)? Or is this not a feasible/good idea?
  11. I have no preference other than an option/switch or whatever which would make life easier for my type setup. Maybe there is a 3rd way, like install MBAM normally and then via options disable the inline scanning and MBAE (not sure what it looks like as I have never installed this beast) turning MBAM into a demand scanner. Here, add an option about not changing the configuration during application updates. That way I only have to reinstall MBAE once after setting up MBAM. That said, perhaps your simple (?) command switch idea is better.
  12. I have a 3 PC paid license valid for both MBAE and MBAM. I would like to run MBAE as base protection and MBAM as a demand scanner, however, the above default install setting makes this a bit awkward, to say the least. I'm missing an option at install to allow me to do so. Anyone at Malwarebytes listening?
  13. I'm running on 3 computers: a legacy XP Sp3, a W7-32 and a W7-64. They all run well with one exception: using Compatibility Mode under W7-32. If a Shielded Program (like Thunderbird, Firefox, Skype, TeamViewer) runs in XP Compatibility Mode, MBAE does not protect it: no log entry, no flyout and no mbae.dll process when testing (searching) in Process Explorer. Possibly an oddity, but I need to run Thunderbird in XP Compatibility Mode to get the UI and Icons I prefer. Moreover, possibly related, when clicking on a web-link in TB (while running in XP Compatibility Mode), Firefox starts without MBAE protection even though it's running in normal W7 mode. Odd indeed! Can someone from MB look into this and advise if this is my own problem or if it's an oddity with the 32-bit mbae modules. Thanks.
  14. I forgot to mention that I'm indeed using version .107 already (link). I think my problem is not related to the XP fix referred to in this forum. It's different. https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/233619-v1121100-clash-with-acrobat-reader-dc/?do=findComment&comment=1262305
  15. Except for the issues referred to separately (see link), version .107 works fine on my W7-32 laptop. That said, it's footprint is slightly larger and the load/unload of programs a tad slower. As are the fly-outs. Where have all the good coders gone... https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/234623-thunderbird-added-shield-not-working/?do=findComment&comment=1262303
