    Hello @CeeBee, How long is the cmd window displayed for you? It should be fairly quick. Thanks,

    The CMD window is opened long enough that I see it as a "black rectangle" proper.  It's not just flashing by.  It slows the loading of the GUI version a bit.  It's not terrible, but a nuisance as I have a ThinkCentre M920s computer with i7-8700 CPU, 16GB and a M2.SDD.

    Hope you can fix this or provide a GUI version only.  The latter doesn't make sense, as a /switch would do the trick imo.  Thanks.


  2. Using a fairly powerful computer with 16GB memory, when starting v.8.0.6 as a GUI program, it first opens a black CMD window for a moment before the GUI is loaded.  To avoid this and to speed up loading of the GUI I need a switch to tell the program to skip the CMD detour.  Is there such a switch?  If not, can you provide one for the next release.  Thanks.

    The files are all counter-signed, which proves the validity of the signing signature despite it being expired. What's important is the signing timestamp of the counter signature, which is before the certificate expired.

    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!

  4. 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    Different issue, Security Certificates: whereas MBAE has valid certificates, I just noted that MBARW has outdated certificates (both Sha1 and Sha256).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? 

  5. 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.

  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?

    It's always your choice. I have a MB pro licence but at the moment I choose not to to register it so that I can see what others without a registered licence can see. Sometimes  just turning off the pro/registered options doesn't tell  the full story of what non registered users may be seeing.

    Good point!  I can always try the free and register later.  Or, maybe just reinstall v. (this is a joke...)!

    Just turn off the  auto scan schedule, Turn off all other modules and only leave anti exploit on. Turn off the warnings about protections  being turned off and there you have it, manual scanning. Waste of a paid license but if that is what you want so be it.

    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.  😉

    I've asked about this previously and it's built in to the updater/installer to uninstall any existing MB products which might conflict with the new install.  As exile360 notes it would require a lot of work to change the installer just for a small subset of users still running MBAE beta.

    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.

    I simply install the MB update, turn off (any free trial of) real time protection, so it's just an on demand scanner, and then reinstall MBAE from the latest installer that I have saved on my HD. Yes it's a bit more work, but it's not that onerous, only takes minutes, and is not something you have to do often.

    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?

    With all of that said, they *might* be able to do something like add a special command line switch to the installer to have it skip the uninstall routine for MBAE and any other incompatible Malwarebytes products/tools it would normally remove ... I'll provide your feedback to the Product team either way ...

    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.

    Every time you install or update MB's program, it will automatically remove any MBAE installations.   Meaning, after updating MB (FREE or PAID), you will have to reinstall MBAE.

    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.

    Try the .107 experimental version, I think that has XP related fixes in it that .100 doesn't, might work for you

    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.



  15. Also, like is the case with Thunderbird, when clicking on a web-link in an email (received in Thunderbird), the Firefox Shield doesn't kick in.  But, when starting Firefox normally, the MBAE Shield is activated okay.  So, one issue leads to two problems...

    The culprit seems to be that I run Thunderbird in XP Compatibility Mode, as I prefer the XP-related User Interface.  If I revert to running TB in normal W7 mode, both the TB and FX Shields work fine.  Go figure!

    If this has something to do with MBAE or not, I have no idea.  However, short of changing the TB User Interface to something I don't like, I need a fix for this.  Any suggestions?

    Yes the 107 build has fixes for both. Thanks.

    Thanks.  I installed .107 over .90 on my old legacy XP Pro machine .. and so far okay.  No install issues and .107 seems to work on Thunderbird, Firefox, MPClassic, Adobe Reader 11.0.23, TeamViewer and Office 2003 Professional.  All settings = default.  We'll see how it looks a few days down the road .. before I test on my two W7 laptops.

    Am I right in assuming that version .107 uses more memory and resources (than .90)?

  17. I'm running on 3 computers, all of which have an Added Shield for Mozilla Thunderbird.  It always worked fine, however, now it works on two (flyout plus log entry), but not on the 3rd (W7-32).  I have removed-added, deactivated-activated the TB Shield without success.  And I have uninstalled-reinstalled MBAE as well.  By the way, other Added Shields work just fine on all 3 computers.

    Where is the Added Shield settings stored?  In the registry or in a file.  Any way to check and/or to modify the settings manually?  Thanks
