  1. Yes I understand, that's why I'm using Windows 10 Defender per my reference above ... not really sure where you are going with this? Perhaps you misunderstood my comment? I have looked into and tested those you've listed, but Kaspersky seems to be more virus than anti-virus ... it was telling me to remove core Win10 components or reporting them as possible security threats when in fact they were part of Windows 10 Pro (like IIS). Cheers, Rob.
  2. I've been a software engineer and project lead (over 34 years now) and have started my company recently. I'll respectfully disagree with you. As outlined in the article I linked above, it is possible with Windows Defender (simple group policy change or registry change) and other vendors are able to perform network scans (at a price and without hacks or security compromises). Please don't take my comment as a negative, it was NOT intended as such ... being a software engineer I fully respect licensing models. Windows Defender is not a speedy process, I'm going on 15 million files scanned and still over 8 hrs to go. I think MalwareBytes is a great product and have been using it for years along with Windows Defenders. Cheers, Rob.
  3. It's unfortunate that MalwareBytes aren't adjusting their design to scan Network drives ... I understand the issue (not really a technical one), if you allowed such activity then users would be able to circumvent licensing by buying just one license and mapping/sharing all the other PCs they may have on their LAN. Anyway here is a link to how you enable Windows 10 to scan network/mapped drives: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/70530-enable-windows-defender-scan-mapped-network-drives-windows-10-a.html Be aware that you must first exit/disable MalwareBytes, once you do that, then Windows 10 Defender will be available when you right click on a mapped network drive, however, the group policy change is aimed at using the "Full Scan" option and ONLY the "Full Scan" option ... don't do custom or quick scans as they will not work for network drives. It would be nice if MalwareBytes looked at one's purchased license and then "registered" computers based on their drive mapping by user request ... so in my case I have MalwareBytes Premium with 3 licenses (running on 3 PCs) ... perhaps provide an option to buy a single network device license (i.e. a NAS) which could be assigned/registered to my NAS device. So if I tried to map other PC's drives they wouldn't work because MalwareBytes has already registered a mapped/network device ... something along those lines. I'm pretty sure every shared/mapped drive has a GUID associated with it at the time of creation which can be used to establish a unique link/license. Add that as my feature request please Cheers, Rob.
  4. I scan this tool with several other AV products and it was not flagged. Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 2/21/20 Protection Event Time: 11:16 AM Log File: a3e3ef32-54de-11ea-a839-40167ea4d9c2.json -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.823 Update Package Version: 1.0.19566 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 18362.657) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Blocked Malware Details- File: 1 Generic.Malware/Suspicious, C:\Users\Rob\Downloads\Process Hacker\processhacker-2.39-setup.exe, Quarantined, 0, 392686, 1.0.19566, , shuriken, (end) You can download the software here as it's free if you need to look into this as a false positive: https://processhacker.sourceforge.io/downloads.php The software is a low level product that is similar to TaskMgr only provides much more detail about a process, it's port usage, file I/O, and registry usage ... it's a VERY powerful tool that can be used to diagnose issues with executable and do allow direct memory access to applications (which is probably why it's being flagged). MalwareBytes team input is important, so please let me know if you have the time to look into this. Cheers, Rob.
  5. And yet, if I right click on a file in Explorer, select "Scan with MalwareBytes" it will scan that file and only that file. So the ability/facility is obviously available in MalwareBytes Premium 4.0.4 but for some strange reason isn't being made available via command line? I'm not interested in Network drive scans, that wasn't my question, I know what it can do hence my paying customer status for several years. Rob
  6. After searching and reading thru this: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1725 The mbamapi /scan ... doesn't support file path?? This seems VERY strange and is preventing me from incorporating MalwareBytes into my Internet Download Manager ... which does support other vendors. I'd rather NOT change anti-virus/malware vendors to those that work with my Internet Download Manager ... but it seems I have no choice? Searching history of MalwareBytes and it does seem this is a VERY common request among your customers, so I'm puzzled at why such a feature is missing? Is it a concern over being able to scan a file on a network drive ... surely that could be detected and blocked internally? So why the reason for not supporting command line individual file scans? Cheers, Rob.
