  1. You kind of just threw your 3rd party partners under the bus saying they can not be trusted. If that's the case Malwarebytes should pull them from the partner program altogether. You guys released this and then for whatever reason pulled it back because there is an update on the AdwCleaner Lifecycle website the day it was released, June 3rd. I know for a fact that Majorgeeks regularly labels Beta releases and Beta releases and update information is provided to them by vendors. I also know update information is provided to them by vendors. They don't have the time to go looking for updates
  2. It was obviously released. Maybe on accident but it is available to anyone who wants it so to say it has not been released is just not true. Malwarebytes releases have been a mess at least for home users, for years, and it's something I am used to. It's just a shame when other websites have more current information. Malwarebytes was released yesterday but the MBSetup.exe from Malwarebytes.com installs a previous version. Either way, I'm done here. I stopped worrying about this long ago and just wait for the software to alert me to updates. The previous versions are still fu
  3. The v8.3.1 is the biggest mystery to me. Seems like it could only come from a developer or someone "hacked" it to read 8.3.1. It also has the same hashes.
  4. There is no mention of beta on the download websites. They all list it a if it is a final release and there is also no mention of a beta or final release on the AdwCleaner Lifecycle web page I linked to above. There was a June 3rd release (alpha? beta? final?) but no official documentation. One website even lists a v8.3.1 Alpha but I downloaded it and the "About" tab shows it to be the v8.3.0 version released on June 3rd. The downloaded AdwCleaner program says it is v8.3.1 though. Reference: Malwarebytes AdwCleaner 8.3.0 Final (Majorgeeks - June 03) AdwCleaner 8.3.0 (Techsp
  5. Just curious why the v8.3 version of AdwCleaner is hosted at many of the download websites but it was apparently removed from the Product Lifecycle website. There is an update to the web page on the day v8.3 was released but no mention of v8.3. Was/Why was it pulled from the website and is this an unstable version that is being distributed by places like Majorgeeks, Techspot and others. Thanks.
  6. I still lurk around from time to time lol. Good to see you too! Thanks!

  7. No I wouldn't say that. You might be better off going to the Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs forum and working through the I'm infected - What do I do now? instructions.
  8. You may want to send it to Malwarebytes.org UploadNET

  10. Jumped up to #3 at MajorGeeks. 1. Game Booster 2. WinX HD Video Converter 3. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  11. Same user: http://www.computer-juice.com/forums/f49/c...malwares-26965/ I'm not 100% sure yet but I think this is an atapi.sys casualty. You might be able to confirm this by the MBAM Database version.
  12. That's MY opinion and if you disagree the so be it. I don't really care. Try going to Download.com or MajorGeeks and accuse them of being thieves. They are download sites and like it or not 360 is a popular download. MajorGeeks and Download.com have a good relationship not only with Malwarebytes but with IObit as well. The download sites didn't do anything wrong here. If you think they did then that's YOUR opinion. Period. If you are trying to pin me into a corner with what IObit then do me a favor and give it a rest.
  13. Maybe the best alternative. It's not a "no thought required" tool so use caution and ask for advice if needed. Autoruns for Windows Then there is Process Explorer which you also need for some functions in Autoruns. Again, use caution and ask questions if needed.
  14. Arguments like that, no matter if you are right or wrong, just makes everyone look bad...
  15. I wasn't trying to excuse IObit. Just saying that we shouldn't hold the download sites to the same accountability as IObit.
  16. http://download.cnet.com/IObit-Security-36....html?tag=mncol It's v1.10 but that doesn't matter. As soon as you update it you will have the latest version. You can't expect download sites to ignore a popular download for too long. The accusations aren't between the download site(s) and IObit. It's between IObit and whoever they have infringed upon. Download.com and MajorGeeks (Download.com mainly) host downloads that I consider spyware/adware so singling out IObit to be removed from their sites is a little over the top. If we go after them for hosting 360 we should go after them for the other

  18. Thanks. I figured it had been posted. I wasn't using the right search term...
  19. Sorry is this is posted already. First on my 64bit Vista and now on my 64bit Windows 7 this registry entry does not go away with a reboot. Each startup I get a UAC warning about MBAM wanting to complete the fix. I've also seen it in a few other HJT logs when doing malware removal so I know it's not just me. O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (reboot)] "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" /runcleanupscript Thanks. Here is the log if needed. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.41 Database version: 3149 Windows 6.1.7600 11/11/2009 2:23:24 PM mbam-log-2009-11-11 (14-2
  20. That's not the main site. Malwarebytes.org is. http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/malwarebytes.org
  21. Comments have no effect on the rating. Comments and ratings are separate. The rating will go red when some more of the regulars change or add their rating. WOT works on a "trust" system. The fewer ratings you have given the less your rating effects the overall. There are a bunch of new raters so it isn't moving the color to yellow or red. Be careful though and don't sign up new accounts (not saying anyone would) to rate with. That will set the page into "Controversial" mode because of the conflicting ratings and shut down the ability for anyone to rate.
