  1. Hello @Bleulander and Significant troubles have been discovered with the release of KB4493509 1809 Build 17763. https://www.google.com/search?newwindow=1&client=firefox-b-1-d&ei=JyG6XJ_yCNLn_Qaa5aTYAw&q=KB4493509&oq=KB4493509&gs_l=psy-ab.3...673059.675784..683289...0.0.. You can certainly imagine how writing temporary Malwarebytes code for the Windows 10 system's temporarily deficient shortcomings is fraught with great dangers. You may wish to evaluate the wisdom of backing KB4493509 out if your situations warrant that move. Hopefully Microsoft will reissue with the minimum wait. In the meantime, frequently check with Microsoft for published resolutions. Thank you.
  2. Hello @IBeThieving: If you have not already, you may wish to put the folks at McAfee's URL blacklisting on your list of those you believe should re-evaluate. Reference: https://www.trustedsource.org/?p=mcafee
  3. Hello @Swandog46: I sincerely apologize for unknowingly combining the two issues. Google images is working fine for me with Chrome and the v1.0.44 extension fully enabled. Congratulations to all.
  4. Hello @Swandog46 and @rakeshsejwal: To be certain, I just now removed the Malwarebytes Browser Extension Beta 1.0.44 from Chrome browsers (73.0.3683.103) on a W10prox64 1809 17763.437 and a macOS Mojave 10.14.4 system. Then, the systems were restarted followed by re-installation of the v1.0.44 extension followed by another system restart on both platforms. For testing, @BillH99999's observation, in another thread in this subforum, suggested msn.com/money and that URL is indeed a simple/quick method of confirmation. The loss of images prevails until the Malwarebytes Browser Extension is completely disabled or removed. No combination of disabling of the extension's individual categories is effective. HTH
  5. Hello @sweettasha: It's great you have navigated the scan features now. No doubt you will receive differing opinions. Running a Custom Scan is normally not required as long as you do run scheduled Threat Scans about once per week. Of course you could run an on-demand Custom Scan once or twice per year. Yes - Custom Scans can be scheduled like any other type scan. All of the other effective real-time features of Malwarebytes for Windows are protecting your system making frequent scans unnecessary. Threat or Custom. Adding the useful Rootkits element to any scan will significantly add to the run-time of that scan. However, if scans are scheduled thoughtfully, the amount of run-time is seldom an issue. Cheers
  6. Hello @sweettasha: What is the next thing you see just after you left-click "Close X" of a previous scan? Thank you.
  7. Hello @sweettasha: Are you able to follow the advice of @Firefox in the #7 post above at https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/245421-how-to-configure-full-scan/?do=findComment&comment=1307128 ? HTH

  9. Hello @sweettasha and The default type of scan you are seeing is the very useful Threat Scan. As the real-time protections of the Premium edition are quite effective, the seldom needed and separate Custom Scan can still be demanded and/or scheduled. You may always examine the results of any scans by pulling up the Reports feature. HTH
  10. Hello @jamesandchey: In the case of a Malwarebytes Browser Extension BETA false positive (FP), the Malwarebytes staff/devs can quickly whitelist the flagged URL in question (and only if appropriate) and then, at a more leisurely pace, examine the logic that produced the FP. An appropriate screenshot will document the reason for the block and hence that specific section of the code and the URL is key to warranted whitelisting and also allow the FP to be reproduced in a controlled environment. Careful whitelisting can only be made if the URL is safe by conducting a local investigation coupled with researching all relevant reporting services. Thank you always for participating in this beta program and assisting in its development with your timely reports.
  11. Hello @Nahuel_G and 171 threats (Trojans, Adware and PUPs) is more than "a few" and certainly significant. To protect your topic from interlopers, I have requested that a Malwarebytes staffer move this topic to the Windows Malware Removal Help & Support subforum for a session with a trained/approved Malware Removal Professional. For the present, please do not delete the contents of the quarantine until told to do so by your helper there. Also, please consider downloading/running Malwarebytes AdwCleaner and if errors are discovered, please quarantine them also and attach its log file in your next reply to this topic. Thank you.
  12. Hello @mdwpsyd: If error popups are present, please take a screenshot of the Malwarebytes Browser Extension BETA for Chrome popup that shows the reason for the block and the complete URL. Then, please attach to your next reply here. Thank you. Sample of a needed screenshot: https://content.invisioncic.com/Mmalware/monthly_2018_12/image.png.4d0026332d26c7bf823f11707512ca8a.png
  13. Hello @Tokyo-Eye: The Malwarebytes' staffers and devs require the necessary detail provided by a screenshot of the popup that documents the type of block & the complete URL. When obtained, please attach with a reply to this topic. Thank you.
  14. Hello @MichaW: I fully realize this does not address the computer's O&O issue. Until @fr33tux and/or @Elisabeth weigh in, please temporarily treat the PDF Architect notifications as a false positive. Thank you.
  15. Hello @MichaW: Regarding: CLSID = 25A3A431-30BB-47C8-AD6A-E1063801134F Is any version of PDF Architect installed now or ever been installed on the computer in question? Reference: https://www.systemlookup.com/CLSID/76913-PDFIEPlugin_dll.html Thank you.
  16. Please remember, as always, the Malwarebytes' devs need the necessary detail provided by the usual screen grab that documents the type of block & the URL. Thank you.
  17. Hello @EMI123 and No. Please do not open the downloaded file. It is only mildly concerning that Malwarebytes for Mac would want to update a updated/current version. Yet, this may have been a rare glitch in the update check just prior to scans. Also, what may be a representation of file size is interesting. As additional analysis data for Malwarebytes staffers, please scan the Malwarebytes-Mac- file, in the downloads folder, by uploading to https://www.virustotal.com/en/ and select the Scan it! button then, select the Reanalyse button. The VT file reanalysis may take two minutes or so. Following the reanalysis, please reply to this topic with only the URL of the reanalysis. The hashes will hold the most interest. Please do not delete the downloaded file in question yet. Thank you. cc: @treed
  18. Hello @liborio and Malwarebytes staffers/developers will require specific data to begin a thorough analysis. Please read the sticky at Having problems using Malwarebytes? Please follow these steps: and start at step #4. Then, please attach the generated mbst-grab-results.zip archive file to your next reply to this topic. Thank you. https://translate.google.com/#view=home&op=translate&sl=en&tl=it
  19. Hello @galileo: Some difficulties that come to mind are: Use of the same license on more than one computer. Failure to deactivate a license when moved to another computer. Your license Keys/IDs in question may not have been purchased from a legitimate source. If they were legitimate, the Keys/IDs may have been compromised by another/others. Etc. Regardless, licensing issues need to be resolved by opening a ticket with https://support.malwarebytes.com/community/consumer/pages/contact-us HTH
  20. Hello @holland and @topangajack: As your observations may not impact all Malwarebytes users, please post the mbst-grab-results.zip archive file for those systems with similar symptoms. Thank you. Reference: Having problems using Malwarebytes? Please follow these steps: cc: @LiquidTension
  21. Hello @PA.Dutchman: Malwarebytes staffers/developers will require specific data to begin a thorough analysis. Please read the sticky at Having problems using Malwarebytes? Please follow these steps: and start at step #4. Then, please attach the generated mbst-grab-results.zip archive file to your next reply to this topic. Thank you.
  22. Hello @Prizrakov: Please reply with the requested screenshot of any related and remaining error. Thank you.
  23. With the standing 4.0.353 database, the first Threat Scan checked about 120 less objects and finished a few seconds earlier than average. As always, thank you all for the update.
