  1. Hi All, Wondering if there is a simple fix for this as I have not been able to find anyone else with this issue online. Running MBAE I am trying to download an .exe in Firefox. I browse to a network share that is not mapped as a drive, and when I click New Folder, AE takes over and kills Firefox. If I save the file to an existing folder, it downloads fine. If I create a new folder in a mapped network drive, it works fine and I can download. If I create a new folder in a local drive, it works fine and I can download. The file that it reports as being blocked is not the file that I was downloading. The file that it reports as being blocked is always a file that resides in the folder in which I am trying to create the new folder. So far, in the six times that it has blocked this, it has cited two different files - though there are many other files in the folder as well. Since it is easy to work around, it is not a show-stopper, but it is annoying.
  2. The MBES instructions on how to fix the Web Blocking issue from Saturday says to disable the real-time protection module for MBAM. It does not say to re-enable it after updating the database. I can't imagine that the solution is to leave the module disabled, so should there be another step included to turn the protection module back on again, such as is included in the MBEP instructions?
  3. Eureka! That's what has been causing my users to get logged on with temp profiles so darn much?
  4. So, I've retrieved the EXE for it, if anyone is interested. The upgrade created C:\ProgramData\MalwarebytesARW\MBAMService\instlrupdate\mbarw-setup-business- after I started an update from the pop-up. Note that I did not have to complete the install form here. I grabbed it and set up a package in PDQ Deploy to push it out. After the install/update, the systray icon does not reappear, so I added a net stop / net start for mb3service at the end of the package, which gets it to reappear. My PDQ package goes like this: File Copy to C:\temp Run install from command line with switches "/SP- /verysilent /suppressmsgboxes" delete the public desktop shortcut (just my personal preference) net stop mb3service net start mb3service It is working well so far.
  5. Also interested to get the .msi installer. I have downloaded he latest MBES package, but it is still the same old version. I was none too pleased to hear it from my users that there is an updated version available.
  6. Thakns again Dyllon! I've done Option 1 via my PDQ Deploy server and scanned a few times. I get a few more machines showing up each time. Is it possible to restart a service on the computers to accelerate the progress? Perhaps the TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service?
  7. Thanks Dyllon! I tested this on a few machines, and sure enough, it shows port 137 as "open|filtered" on one that does not show in the scan, and shows as "open" on one that does. Is there a way to allow the scans through?
  8. Hello, What is the communication method/protocol that the console uses to scan for machines in an IP range? I currently have 107 clients in one subnet reporting as online, but when I scan that subnet to push some client updates, I only end up with 19 found computers. Firewalls are off, NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled, and File and Printer Sharing is enabled. I used to get much better results from the scans. The only thing that has changed is that we moved to new building on a mostly new LAN. We use the same subnets as before, and moved most of the switches from the old location, but we do have some new ones. Since we are getting some results, I wouldn't think that the infrastructure would be the issue. The 19 machines that do show up seem to be random, and are from all areas of the building.
  9. Awesome! This worked for me. I was not sure if I needed to, but I restarted the service after applying the exclusion. Is that needed?
  10. Hello, We are having an issue with Anti-Ransomware interfering with Admin Arsenal's PDQ Inventory scanner. When PDQ Inventory runs a periodic scan, it creates a new folder/file tree, for example, C:\Windows\AdminArsenal\PDQInventory-Scanner\service-1\PDQInventory-Scanner-1.exe. Once the scan successfully completes, the files are deleted. The MB3Service allows these folders and files to be created, but seems to keep them locked, so the files do not get deleted. Each time the scan takes place, the number designation on the exe file, and the containing folder both increment by one. After the scan takes place 16 times, the number cycles back to 1. Since the PDQInventory-Scanner-1.exe file did not get deleted, and is locked by MB3Service, PDQ cannot complete its scan. The only way that I can delete these folders & files is to kill the MB3Service. Now, I know that there is no central management capabilities currently in the beta of A-RW, but is there any way to set exclusions on several machines at one time? Can exclusions be set through command line switches during install? I am hoping so! -tim
  11. I see that there is a new AE client ( available to push from the MBMC, but the MC is the same version as my current console with AE, so when I attempt to run the MC install to get it to start pushing the new AE client, it tells me that it is the same version as the existing and will not install. I have some questions related to this: Is the proper way to get the new AE client in the console to uninstall my current MC and install the "new" MC that includes the AE client? Where in the documentation does it explain how to upgrade the console? I could not find it.
