  1. Unless I'm misunderstanding something or this has since been resolved -- If you highlight any desired text in a post a "Quote this" pop-up appears. Click it and the text is added to the reply box as a quote. As far as I know, there's no limit on the quantity of separate quotes which can be added to a reply box. After you've placed a quote -- click an empty space (below the previous one) in the reply box to place the next quote, otherwise you'll overwrite the previous one. It's a bit wonky --- trying to place a quote between two quotes merges with the bottom quote; sometimes even when
  2. The helpers at the MB Forum do more than provide immediate help. Whatever needs to be done (including changing or reverting the software) to further their efforts, should be done. I'm not saying efforts aren't being made. I am accentuating the importance of the contributors and their 'work-space'. Marcin Kleczynski :
  3. Thank you. All set. Yesterday I couldn't in any OS or browser. Today I can in each.
  4. I logged in as you and I'm able to turn all of them off. Try restarting your computer or maybe try another browser and let us know. Ron
  5. I'm unable to deselect e-mail notifications at these two fields in "Notification Settings" --> "Notification Lists". They're greyed out. Under General heading - "Someone comments on something I follow" and under Messenger heading - "I receive a message".
  6. As the title says. Received e-mail from a spam post that was posted at Malwarebytes Forum News. In that case, I wasn't following that sub-forum. However, I checked through my "Managed Followed Content" Settings and found that each topic I had subscribed to had e-mail checked as a notification preference. I had not chosen that. It was checked by default by the Forum Software Update. [I unchecked each instance after discovering the error.]
  7. Story is over a week old but in the chance any MB forum member is affected and hadn't heard : http://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-the-linux-mint-hack-is-an-indicator-of-a-larger-problem/ As far as the backdoor in an ISO is concerned, it appears that Mint 17.3 Cinnamon, if downloaded on 2/20/16, was the only affected edition. http://news.softpedia.com/news/linux-mint-website-hacked-users-pointed-to-download-isos-with-backdoors-in-them-500707.shtml More info from ZDNet, including an interview with the hacker. It was too easy to accomplish. (Stories on the Net allege the servers wer
  8. This informational guide and FAQs, at bleepingcomputer(dot)com, will give you a better understanding of CryptoWall : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/cryptowall-ransomware-information
  9. I once had, and now I often run across people that have, a misconception of what MBAM can and cannot detect. Something like, "I context scan all my downloaded DOC/PDF, fill-in-the-blank files with MBAM", etc. At some point, though it's probable it's already happened, someone will be burned by that misconception. It doesn't help that on the MBAM 'Free' webpage there's this : "Malwarebytes is certified by Westcoast Labs for antivirus, anti-spyware, and anti-trojan" Please provide a full, MBAM description on the relevant product website pages and at the MBAM sub-forum. [ In the meantime, for
  10. Sorry for the loss. Condolences to family and friends.
  11. You caught some nice skyscape backgrounds -- the 'sky and thunder god' was with you. Thanks for the show :-)
  12. Agree with the principle -- don't update drivers without a compelling reason, ie : security or broken functionality. If your stuff is working, why risk potential instability for little to no gain? Something simple to try that worked for me : A while ago, I had a similar problem to the OP. My optical drive (hereafter, OD) would play data discs but wouldn't play CDs and DVDs. I discovered this weeks after having tried a few imaging and rip/burn softwares. I tried the usual --- lens cleaning disc, check OD driver, etc... I ended up testing with a known good, external OD plugged into a known go
  13. I have the same offerings on two machines. Clicked the 'more information' link and the descriptions there don't indicate any W10 relationship. I've seen nothing on the net regarding same and, so far, no widespread problems with the updates. Some of these security updates are labeled as critical by MSFT -- https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-109-- highly exploitable but with no known exploits -- https://isc.sans.edu/ (scroll down to Tuesday report). Looks to be valuable patches to apply after whatever your usual 'wait and see' time is.
  14. Just to add : I tried ABP in IE11 (I rarely use IE) and it had an impact on browser performance. Could've just been me. What did reduce ads and tracking for me without reducing performance was using IE's 'Tracking Protection List' options. You can manipulate the values to an extent within its panel and/or get additional prepackaged lists. Two of the prepackaged ones are also in ABP, Easy List Standard and Easy Privacy. MSFT site -- http://www.iegallery.com/tpl There are sites that host other lists (Malware Domains, Fanboy complete, etc..) that've been converted to IE TPL language.
  15. Congrats, dale! Well done again and again for so many. This news is blowing people away!
  16. Also, there's EULAs here : https://www.malwarebytes.org/eula/
  17. I've had several rescue dogs over the years. That 1/6 comes quickly and it's never easy. The wifey said there's vids of the pair at YT beginning from puppyhood. The 'deadlift' shows tremendous trust. The trainer's a special, young woman.
  18. I think Woody was trying to appeal for calm in what has been a storm of privacy concern reporting. Though he didn't stoop to blatantly slurring privacy advocates, he did tweak them a bit. And, omission of major elements of an issue can be a strategic tweak in, and of, itself. I don't know his full intention but, per usual, the piece is well-written and informative. The evidence of my senses tells me there's legitimate, non-paranoid, obvious reason for concern regarding privacy in the current, major market structure. It'll require more than the general push from the limited numbers who are pu

  20. On machine #2 -- only difference between the two is #2 has lesser hardware resources. However, certain advanced settings, as reported in this thread, were unchecked after reboot. Clicked 'Restore defaults'. Otherwise, no problems.
  21. MBAE "free"; W7 SP1 x64; SBIE 4.2 (settings per FAQ); latest Fx and IE. No problems. MBAE upgraded over-the-top of version 1.07.1.1011. All settings retained before and after boot.
