  1. Using V. Free Edition under WIN 7 32bit: Settings change willy-nilly. I changed in Settings the "Application Updates" and "Notifications" entries to "off", then selected "Reports" and then back to Settings - my "Application Updates" and "Notifications" settings were reverted back to "on". Sometimes the settings revert back to prior state upon program re-run, sometimes they stick. Can't provide a consistent recipe to help debugging.
  2. Hello, Attached file is reported as Trojan.Downloader. It certainly has some suspicious characteristics, but behavioral analysis indicates that it is far from what malewarebytes reports. No logfile - the report is from virus total with today's database. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/6f346257ef878ef18f0ae82c98be15e56941fb589adae493ee6db6b12b4d7eea/analysis/1421717730/ Keymaker.zip
  3. Attached is a false positive, reporting a trojan. This is a sample utility for ISV source code protection from a SDK by secutech.com. Reported as totally clean by virustotal (0/41) and threatexperts. I got the source code if you require. I hope it is not flagged as malware by the fact that it is dongle related and Chinese.

  4. 1. I am very technical, and my "false positive" claim is that you report "Trojan.Agent.CK' while it is NOT a trojan. If MWB wants to warn a user about a code that is benign to the system but belongs to a a class of software that is dangerous, then it should report it as a "Suspicious file" - as some other AV program do. 2. The major AV program declare the file as "clean". Some 2nd tier scanners report the file not as a trojan carrier but as "suspicious". None claim the file as carrying an active load of trojan code, and indeed the file, tested in a controlled environment, did not modify the
  5. The attached file is reported as a fairly benign by VirusTotal (clean bill of health by the major AV vendors), and clean by ThreatExperts. However it is reported as containing a Trojan.Agent.CK by MWB. I suspect a false positive. Note: the Project1.exe reported in the log is also a false positive, but I will defer it to a future date.

  6. Hello, I am pretty sure that the attached file is a false positive. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.41 Database version: 2790 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 9/13/2009 5:43:56 PM mbam-log-2009-09-13 (17-43-43)_FalsePos.txt Scan type: Quick Scan Objects scanned: 1 Time elapsed: 9 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 0 Folders Infected: 0 Files Infected: 1 Memory Processes Infected: (No malicious items detected) Memory Modules Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Keys Infecte
  7. This also did the trick for me. Thanks. I had a clean fresh system, with ZoneAlarm installed. When installing MBAM, ZoneAlarm poped up and asked me if to approve MBAM changing a reg key to autorun on each boot up. I said no, and I think that this also inhibited MBAM from continuing and registering the required components. So I regged them manually with regsvr32 (did not succeed in registering zlib - I got a message that it was loaded but no entry point was found), and now MBAM fires up without any problems.
  8. Thanks for the prompt reply. Just a comment: before I posted, I searched in the forum for "security center" messages and found none with that string in their title.
  9. Hello, Malwarebytes V.1.40 reported my OS setup choice (not to update, no Firewall etc) as malware (registry data). If the developers consider this to be worthy of reporting to the user, please do it as a note and not as a malware with red fonts with an option to delete these reg keys. Very alarming to the regular Joe with dire consequences if deleted.
