  1. Custom Scan option missing

    Also, on the off chance that this is the issue, are you seeing your last Scan Results when you click the Scan tab? If so, simply click the Close link in upper right on that page and then when you go back to the Scan tab you'll see the Select a Scan screen with the Custom Scan option.
  2. Mistake in the Romanian translation

    Hello! Thank you for passing this along. I have forwarded the feedback to the appropriate team.
  3. MB 3.4.5

    @throkr Thanks for the feedback! Keep us posted on how it goes. @Access Denied It's nice when people notice the little things. Glad 3.4.5 is working well for you.
  4. ANSWERED I give up

    Thanks, @Access Denied ! Glad to hear the good news.
  5. @TempLost We haven't forgotten about this request! This is a side-effect of the way upgrades are currently handled and the interaction with the installer. We plan to detect the OS language prior to installation in one of our upcoming updates so that upgrades will automatically install into that language (assuming it's one of our supported languages). You'll still have the ability to change the default language during the installation, however.
  6. Hello! We have a new patch upgrade for Malwarebytes for Windows—v. 3.4.5. We’ve started rolling out upgrades for this version via in-app upgrades. If you don't want to wait to be notified by the program that your upgrade is available you can always grab the upgrade manually by clicking Install Application Updates in Settings > Application (if you're running MB 3.2 or later). The updated installer is also available for download now from the main Malwarebytes website. Here’s the list of changes / improvements in 3.4.5: Performance/protective capability Improved remediation for hijacked shortcuts Continued improvements to overall protection, detection and remediation Usability Device Name now syncs to the Malwarebytes My Account portal for users on the paid version Improved accessibility features for the Notification Center Added custom messages designed to highlight the value of Malwarebytes protection and help it remain free Stability/issues fixed Fixed problem when cutting / pasting files with anti-ransomware enabled Fixed problem where USB stick would not eject properly with anti-ransomware enabled Fixed a service crash related to self-protection Fixed a blue screen crash related to Web Protection Addressed other miscellaneous defects Thanks!
  7. Hi @Firefox and @exile360 -- I've posted a reply to the original 3.4.4 announcement that can be linked to. We do have a fix for these issues (all related) and hope to get that out in the next Malwarebytes update, coming soon!
  8. Malwarebytes 3.4 - now available

    KNOWN ISSUES with Malwarebytes 3.4.4 with Anti-Ransomware enabled: When running Malwarebytes 3.4.4 with anti-ransomware enabled, you may see issues cutting and pasting files. Copy / paste will work just fine, but cutting / pasting may give you an “access denied” error. The work-around is to either temporarily disable anti-ransomware or instead try copy / pasting. A similar issue can occur when renaming a file, though usually if you wait a short while and then try renaming again it'll work. Additionally, you may not be able to eject a USB stick with anti-ransomware enabled. The work-around is to temporarily disable anti-ransomware, eject the USB and then re-enabled anti-ransomware. We are testing a fix for both these issues and should have that released shortly in our next Malwarebytes 3.x update.
  9. Notification bug is back

    Hi CraigS -- Currently this Scan Complete notification does not honor the "Show Malwarebytes notifications in the system tray" setting in Application Settings. This is something we're considering for a future update. Currently only the green Scan Complete notification when no detections have been found will auto-dismiss after a few seconds. If a scheduled scan finds any detections you'll see a different Scan Complete notification that requires user action to dismiss. If you disable the "Show Malwarebytes notifications in the system tray" setting then the following real-time protection notifications will be suppressed: Malicious Website Blocked Malware Detected (when auto-quarantine is enabled) Non-Malware Detected (when auto-quarantine is enabled) For more info, please see the Help guide: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support/guides/mb/Settings.html#notify
  10. ANSWERED Malwarebytes Complaint

    Hi all-- I just wanted to confirm that it is actually expected to see this notification after a schedule scan even if there were no detections, but there's been a bug that has kept it from displaying properly in the last couple releases. We plan to eventually have this notification honor the "Show Malwarebytes notification in the Windows System Tray" setting in Application Settings. That way you can control whether it's displayed or not. But since it auto-dismisses now after a couple seconds hopefully it's not too disruptive. I know other users appreciate seeing this notification occasionally, as they like the confirmation their system is clean. Thanks for the feedback on the issue!
  11. notification center

    Thanks for the feedback! I've added a note of clarification to the main 3.4.4 forum announcement. The Notification Center will be built out in stages, but for this first stage it'll only display in the header after you've had a real-time detection block. It may take some users longer than others to see a real-time detection, so we didn't think it made sense to always display for now. Once there are additional meaningful notifications plugged in then likely the default will be to always show it.
  12. Hello! We just released a new upgrade for Malwarebytes for Windows--Malwarebytes 3.4.4. Initially this version will only be available via in-app upgrades. If you don't want to wait to be notified by the program that your upgrade is available you can always grab the upgrade manually by clicking Install Application Updates in Settings > Application (if you're running MB 3.2 or later). The updated installer will be also available for download from main Malwarebytes website starting March 6th or 7th. Here’s the list of changes / improvements in 3.4: Performance/protective capability • Improved remediation for shortcuts and tasks • Added better handling for heavily infected systems to streamline detection & remediation • Continued improvements to overall protection, detection and remediation Usability • Added Notification Center for easy access to most recent real-time block notifications (NOTE: you will see this in dashboard header, but currently it won't display for first time until after a real-time block event has occurred) • Added category to website blocked notification to show the reason why site was blocked • Improved report design for better usability • Added device name to My Account screen in preparation to sync with My Account portal • Updated the API used to interact with Windows Action/Security Center • Changed the 'Recover if missed by' setting for Scheduled Scans to be enabled by default for new scans • Numerous other user interface and copy improvements Stability/issues fixed • Fixed issue where files did not save properly with anti-ransomware enabled • Fixed issue where notifications could stack so you might see multiple versions of same message • Fixed issue where Beta opt in setting would not honor Restore Defaults • Updated the 7-Zip library to the latest version, v.18.01 • Improved upgrade process from earlier versions of Malwarebytes • Continued improvements to driver operation and management • Fixed several crashes, including a blue screen related to Web Protection • Addressed other miscellaneous defects Thanks!
  13. 3.4.4?

    HI there! The 3.4.4.2398 version is actually our full release version, so not another beta. We are sending it out slowly via upgrades first and will update our main website tomorrow with the new installer. Thanks to all who help test this during the beta. Your help was invaluable!
  14. Malwarebytes 3.4 Beta 3 just posted

    Hi boombastik-- The only changes in the latest beta are around protection. We did investigate the issue you reported and believe it is related to our anti-ransomware module. The typical process is to address the issue in our standalone beta for anti-ransomware and once fully validated we pull it in to Malwarebytes 3.x. So while this issue likely won't be addressed in final MB 3.4 release, we should be able to push it shortly after in our subsequent update.
  15. Hi all! Just wanted to let you know we've released Malwarebytes 3.4.3 as Beta 3 for v. 3.4. Please see full details in the revised announcement here. Thanks!
