  1. Hi AdvancedSetup: As I stated <above>, I have a fully patched Win 10 v20H2 laptop and it is the only machine I use for browsing, email, word processing and other regular daily activities. I understand your point of view but I'm sill not clear what you're suggesting I do with my old Vista SP2 machine. The links you posted <above> are for Win 7 SP1 updates. I have an old Vista SP2 machine that is rarely booted up but it's fully patched patched to end of support for Vista SP2 (11-Apr-2017), and Microsoft never released SHA-2 code signing updates or TLS 1.1 / TLS 1.2 con
  2. Hi AdvancedSetup: What is the best method for users like the OP eliuri to add SHA-2 code signing support when they have a Win 7 SP1 machine that is not fully patched to end of support on 14-Jan-2020 and see the message "A Missing Security Update is required to update MB"? The Malwarebytes support article Windows 2019-09 Security Update for Windows Devices Running Malwarebytes Home Products is very vague and only directs users to the Microsoft support article 2019 SHA-2 Code Signing Support Requirement for Windows and WSUS, which states in part: Does that mean that eliuri must add
  3. Hi AdvancedSetup: The OP eliuri might already have those updates installed, depending on when they turned off Windows Update on their Win 7 SP1 machine. The convenience rollup for Win 7 SP1 (referred to as "Windows 7 SP2" in the MS Answers article at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/how-to-obtain-and-install-windows-7-sp2/c2c7009f-3a10-4199-9c89-48e1e883051e), for example, notes that: Also, is the KB3140245 update (released June 2016) that adds TLS 1.1 / TLS 1.2 support to Win 7 SP1 required for users like eliuri who wish to continue updating Malw
  4. Hi eliuri: Could you just confirm that both KB4490628 (the Windows 7 Servicing Stack Update released 12-Mar-2019) and KB4474419 (SHA-2 Code Signing Support Update for Windows 7, released 23-Sep-2019) are missing from your list of installed updates at Control Panel | Programs and Features | View Installed Updates? I don't have a Win 7 SP1 OS but this is an example of what I see when I search for KB4018466 on my old Vista SP2 machine: Could you also let us know the approximate date you turned off Windows Update on your Win 7 SP1 machine? When you said in your original post that "W
  5. Hi AdvancedSetup: I don't have a machine with Win 7 SP1 , only Win 10 v20H2 (my main machine) and a Vista SP2 test machine patched to end of support on 11-Apr-2017 that I occasionally boot up to help other Vista SP2 users troubleshoot their problems. I am aware that there are Win Server 2008 SP2 (build 6.0.600x.xxxxx) updates released after 11-Apr-2017 that can add SHA-2 code signing and TLS 1.1/TLS 1.2 connection protocols to my Vista SP2 OS but as far as I know those Win Server 2008 SP2 updates aren't required as long as Malwarebytes continues to allow Win XP and Vista users to d
  6. Hi AdvancedSetup: I've been following eliuri's 17-Apr-2021 thread "A Missing Security Update is Required to Update MB": What Still Updates? and the 07-Apr-2021 Malwarebytes support article Windows 2019-09 Security Update for Windows Devices Running Malwarebytes Home Products seems to imply that Windows 7 SP1 users who have not patched their OS to end of extended support on 14-Jan-2020 must install the KB4474419 (SHA-2 Code Signing Support Update for Windows 7, released 23-Sep-2019) if they wish to continue receiving new Malwarebytes v4.x product updates. However, there is a link in that
  7. Hi eliuri: Further to my previous post <here>, I noticed that NortonLifeLock also posted an announcement in their user forum on 16-Apr-2021 at SHA 2 Code Signing Support for Windows 7 that states in part: That seems to suggest that installing the standalone .msu installer for KB4474419 from the Microsoft Update Catalog at https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=kb4474419 windows 7 should be all you need to add SHA-2 support to your unpatched Win 7 SP1 machine if you want to continue receive Malwarebytes product updates beyond v4.3.0.98-1.0.1251. To install t
  8. Hi eliuri: You might want to read Lawrence Abrams' 12-Mar-2019 BleepingComputer article Windows 7 Gets SHA-2 Support To Enable Future Updates as well as Microsoft's 14-Apr-2021 announcement Microsoft to Use SHA-2 Exclusively Starting May 9, 2021. I don't have a Win 7 SP1 OS but my understanding is that if you turned off your Windows Update before September 2019 and did not receive KB4490628 (the Windows 7 Servicing Stack Update released 12-Mar-2019) and KB4474419 (SHA-2 Code Signing Support Update for Windows 7, released 23-Sep-2019) then you might find that you will soon see issues with
  9. Hi JPopovic: Confirming that the www.greattastesmb.ca website is no longer being blocked by either Malwarebytes Premium or the Malwarebytes Browser Guard for Firefox browser extension.

  10. Hi icantchooseone: I don't normally have a Malwarebytes start icon pinned to my taskbar (there is no need because my Malwarebytes Premium always loads at boot-up and runs in real-time protection mode so the system tray icon is always visible and can be used to open the Malwarebytes interface or check for updates) but as a test I pinned a Malwarebytes icon to my taskbar (Start | Malwarebytes | More | Pin to Taskbar) and I believe you're correct - Check for Updates only appears in the taskbar jump list when my Malwarebytes interface is open. When the Malwareabytes interface is closed all I
  11. I'm seeing a possible false positive for RiskWare on the www.greattastesmb.ca (Great Tastes of Manitoba) website from both the Malwarebytes Browser Guard for Firefox v2.2.22 browser extension ... ... and the Web Protection module of Malwarebytes Premium v4.3.0.98-1.0.1251.

  12. Hi icantchoosesome: Sorry about the earlier confusion over taskbar icon jump lists vs pop-up menus from the system tray icon. I've edited my post <above> to clarify that I was talking about the pop-up menu I see when I right-click the Malwarebytes icon in the system tray. Is it possible you've recently cleared (or disabled) the list of Recently Opened Items in your jump lists? I haven't used the registry hack mentioned <here> by exile360, and here's the jump list I saw today when I open the Malwarebytes interface and right clicked the Malwarebytes icon on the taskba
  13. Hi icantchooseone: Do you mean that your Malwarebytes icon is normally hidden in your Win 10 system tray? If you want to unhide your Malwarebytes icon in Win 10 go to Settings | Personalization | Taskbar | Notification Area and click "Select which icons appear in the taskbar". Then turn ON the icon for the Malwarebytes Tray Application, and the icon will not be hidden as log as Malwarebytes is running on your system. ---------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v20H2 build 19042.867 * Firefox v87.0 * Microsoft Defender v4.18.2103.7 * Malwarebytes Premium v4.3.0.98-1.0.1251 Del
  14. Hi icantchooseone: Just FYI, I use Malwarebytes Premium v4.3.0 on my 64-bit Win 10 Pro v20H2 machine and this is what the pop-up menu currently looks like when I right-click my Malwarebytes system tray icon: When I was using Malwarebytes Free v4.x (i.e., before I activated my Premium license on 31-Mar-2021) on this same machine the option to Check for Updates was also present in the pop-up menu with 64-bit Win 10 Pro v1909, v2004 and v20H2. ---------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v20H2 build 19042.867 * Firefox v87.0 * Microsoft Defender v4.18.2103.7 * Malwarebytes Premium v4.3.0.98-1.0
  15. Hi Firefox: Thanks for confirming that the download link at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline is working again for you as well. The problem seems to be resolved now so the Forum Mods are welcome to lock this thread if they wish. Kudos as well to the other users who tested this download link and provided feedback. ------------- 64-bit Win 10 Pro v20H2 build 19042.867 * Firefox v87.0 * MS Edge Chromium v89.0.774.75 * Microsoft Defender v4.18.2102.4 * Malwarebytes Premium v4.3.0.98-1.0.1251 Dell Inspiron 15 5584, Intel i5-8265U CPU, 8 GB RAM, Toshiba KBG40ZNS256G 2
