  1. Hello @AdvancedSetup: Welcome back! Never hurts to ask on behalf of techs who may wish to mechanize a thorough multi-faceted scan. Thank you, Ron.
  2. Hello @fr33tux: I would like to renew the occasional request of others; if AdwCleaner is destined to remain the fine standalone utility it has matured to, then I would like to see a very capable CLI and a scheduler added for the same reasons others have submitted. Thank you.
  3. @fr33tux Hello Jérôme: I too have downloaded and ran the special build and submitted a valid email address. While you have our attention, is their something else special you would like us to do with this special build? Should we run it more frequently to glean more data? Many of would be happy to comply. My goodness! Over 5,300 downloads in about one-half hour... Thank you.
  4. Hello @MAXBAR1: I remember you posting that you were testing Catalina 10.15 and I also remember @treed posting that Malwarebytes for Mac would not install on a Catalina powered system. We also know that Malwarebytes for Mac 3.9.27 is not a public beta but is a release edition. Malwarebytes developers writing code for a moving target like today's Catalina Developer Beta 7 must be a daunting task... HTH
  5. Hello @Rossomike1966: We will see if they can permanently whitelist rarbg.to for your business/enterprise product. Thank you for your patience. cc: @Dashke @Zynthesist @djacobson
  6. Hello @Rossomike1966: The larger Content Delivery Networks (CDN) may employ rotating dynamic IP addressing. This is what you may be seeing. Sometimes a nested rotating dynamic IP addressing technique is used to thwart those who would intend harm to such providers. Amazon Web Service has employed similar techniques. This provides an elusive IP address while still rendering a stable URI. The information in post #3 should be viable if the domain name is used versus an IP address. If you like, please provide a screenshot of the Malwarebytes for Windows exclusion list. You have started this topic in a Home or Consumer sub-forum. Is the computer in question using a business or Endpoint Protection product? If so, please specify which Malwarebytes product and version the computer uses. HTH
  7. Hello @Rossomike1966: I have requested Malwarebytes forum management move your topic to a more appropriate sub-forum. You are likely aware that the website in question also supports the BitTorrent protocol and may be a potential source of serious and dangerous malware infestation. Please capture a Windows Screenshot of the warning notification and attach that screenshot file to your next reply to this topic. Thank you.
  8. Hello @Rossomike1966 and Thank you for your interest in Malwarebytes business products. I understand now that you presently use the business version Malwarebytes Anti-Malware v1.80.2.1012 We need to consult with the folks that assist in business matters. Thank you. cc: @djacobson
  9. Hello @Rossomike1966: If Malwarebytes for Windows (MB3) is blocking your computer's access to a URL that is being blocked by the Web Protection feature: Please download the Exclude detections in Malwarebytes on Windows devices document. Go to the Exclude a Website Section and follow the procedure for entering a URL. Please remember to select the OK button to save your addition. Thank you.
  10. It's a curiosity when Bitdefender Internet Security 2020 flags Inspector Gadget in a user's installation while their present VT engine hasn't. https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/12c4dda923da181361cd09ff7e24dd41a0914aa1b4064971568cca701f6372fb/details
  11. Hello @Night_Terror: Despite the latest run of advised mbst-clean, the unfortunate result was a persistent imperfect install of MB3. I have requested that forum management move your topic to the Windows Malware Removal Help & Support sub-forum for continued and isolated assistance. Additionally, your system could benefit from minor cleanup. Thank you.
  12. Hello @Night_Terror: Please reply with the present state of MB3 and your Windows system. If all is not normal, please generate a fresh mbst-grab-results.zip archive file and also attach it in your next reply. Thank you.
  13. Hello @Night_Terror and The mbst-clean action seems to have successfully deleted a prior installation of Malwarebytes 3 for Windows (MB3) free. However, the install that followed seems to have failed. Out of curiosity, what prompted the mbst-clean in the first place? Please temporarily and completely, disable Bitdefender Internet Security. Then, run another mbst-clean to completion allowing for a repeated install of MB3 3.8.3 If at any point a Windows restart is requested, please do so without delay. If the above steps are not successful, please re-run the mbst-gather utility and attach the Grab to your next reply with the status of your computer. If the mbst-clean is successful, you may re-enable Bitdefender Internet Security and reply to this topic with your system's status. Thank you.
  14. It appears as if the above issue was resolved in the last fifeeteen minutes. Thank you.
  15. Hello @John A: Please note - I misused the word "Cut" when I should have sent "Copy". This is now corrected in #6 above. Just to see what would happen, I had been applying the new installer files "over the top" since the first MB3 > MB4 upgrade. My license Key/ID was carried-over in both cases. Perhaps improvements were made to prevent troublesome white space characters from being transferred. I know I could not Copy & Paste from a remote/portable text file kept as a backup to my.malwarebytes.com records. I'll try a few more variations and report what happens. Thank you, John A.
  16. Hello All: In the name of thoroughness, perhaps a numerically sorted list of Malwarebytes documents in the MBG series would be helpful: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3438 - Malwarebytes Browser Guard User Guide (Possibly undergoing editing) https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3439 - Install Malwarebytes Browser Guard https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3442 - Malwarebytes Browser Guard Current web site and Statistics screens https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3443 - Malwarebytes Browser Guard Settings screen https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3444 - Malwarebytes Browser Guard Allow list and Support screens https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3445 - Malwarebytes Browser Guard types of block pages https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3446 - Malwarebytes Browser Guard guide HTH

  18. As of a few minutes ago, I noticed the Malwarebytes' Robot response to new topics (typically post #2) in the Malwarebytes 3 Support Forums seems to have lost their link to the .png files referred to within the upper "Reveal hidden contents" section. I wonder if a timely support contact with Invision can be had? The trouble has been verified on four (4) browsers here.
  19. Hello to All: From a very knowledgeable insider's perspective regarding macOS malware, Malwarebytes' Director of Mac & Mobile, Mr. Thomas Reed should be asked to weigh in on @chris_m_28's deeper questions involving the proprietary functional operation of Malwarebytes for Mac versus current cybersecurity threat trends. Thank you. cc: @treed
  20. Hello @LiquidTension: All is well again. I performed a deactivation, MBST_Clean and a MB4.Beta2 install. I transplanted my previous %programdata%\malwarebytes\mbamservice\config directory but the previous exclusions made no appearance in the new install although a setting or two did make it through. Repopulating exclusions was made less arduous because of a helpful Custom scan that reminded me of what entries I forgot. I remain contrite with the theory that my aggressive cleanup practice may be the basis for the lost MbamElam.sys driver. The prime suspect may be my ill conceived use of the portable bleachbit.exe 2.2 with over-ambitious parameterization. This being a poorly thought out methodology to minimize the file size/runtime of my licensed Macrium Reflect Home system backups in an effort to pack as many as possible in a 1 GB portable partition. Lastly, when activating our licenses, is it a new normal that Windows Copy & Paste, of our Key/ID, is no longer possible? Thank you again, @LiquidTension
  21. Hello @LiquidTension: Thank you for analyzing that amount of meager data. I will perform the clean install, discussed above, followed by a suspension of my manual cleaning operations. I will still post to this thread regarding any repeated MB4.Beta2 failures. HTH
  22. Hello @John A: It's always helpful to secure a MBST-Gather before valuable info is lost: Please follow only steps 1 thru 8 in the Upload Malwarebytes Support Tool logs manually procedure. Then, attach the mbst-grab-results.zip archive file in your next reply to this topic for analysis by staff. Thank you.
  23. Hello @LiquidTension: I am afraid too much time has passed for the first two directories to have sustained till now. The requested event logs archive however, is attached. Please chalk this unfortunate loss up to my use of the Windows Cleanup, CCleaner and the BleachBit utilities between MB4.Beta2's installation and now. In the event other possible remaining data is required, I will shut this beta test system down now and await further instructions. I do have a Linux system and a MacBook I use quite frequently. Thank you kindly for the exclusions transfer instructions. For myself, this will combine the best features of mbst_repair and mbst_clean. 1PW_EventLogs.zip
  24. Hello @nikhils & @LiquidTension: The MB4.Beta2 in question had been in continuous operation since its first day of public availability with only previously documented FPs found. Just after updating several user applications (one requiring a system restart) the MB4.Beta2 app failed to start with the W10 system restart. Forcing a Manual start of MB4 yielded the dreaded "Unable to connect the Service" notification: The attached mbst-grab (FRST - One month (created)) should document the apps I had just updated. I can easily afford to leave this beta testing system as-is if anything additional would be helpful to staffers/devs. Else the plan is to mbst-clean followed by a MB4.Beta2 reinstall. A Threat Scan with Malwarebytes Toolset's 1.6.1.1380 Portable Scanner was negative. I have quite a collection of current exclusions that will be troublesome but, c'est la vie. Would transplanting %ProgramData%\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\exclusions.txt be fraught with great peril? HTH mbst-grab-results.zip
  25. Hello @Seog and Looks can be deceiving. The installer in question is flagged by 33 malware checking engines. On the same page where a victim is to select the "Add & Start Download" button, you are knowingly agreeing to install a browser stealer which is likely the PUP you are being protected from. The average computer security conscious user would immediately reject this. Say "Thank You" to your Malwarebytes Premium! Please once again evaluate your decision to override the Malwarebytes warning. BTW - by not placing the infectious link in a BBS Code box <> , others could fall victim. Forum management has been requested to neuter that hotlink. Known safe malware report: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/17c89ca02d6ce1574e8f0d03dac34f4c04c34a30916cc536932dc93696633b41/details HTH
