  1. now i'm understanding why "mark as resolved" didn't work on my post … thanks. however … there is a claim that the "edit post" feature can be accessed via a triple-dot-icon (top-right of post) … that option does not show up in my thread … all i have is "report" and "share". would this be the same reason? ref: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/264845-mbam-free-unable-to-contact-license-server-…/
  2. errr … thanks for the reply, advancedsetup … actually, porthos helped set the record straight with my issue … turned out to be ignorance on my part. notably, the software has been working fine ever since … issue has been resolved. upon rec'g your reply just now … i looked around for a "resolved" button … could find nothing of the sort. also looked in the website "announcements" … there was indication of a widget being enabled on 09-28 … however, i found no such control in this thread of mine(firefox 'n brave). what
  3. good news … think the matter has been resolved. porthos … as always, before installing new software … i went ahead and first rebooted computer. because of my environment … i boot win-10 with network cable detached. then typed my win-10 pw … and the os boots to desktop as normal. still with cable detached, my password-manager initiates … once opened, i then allow myself to connect network cable. i also have, in the past, allowed mbam to initiate … allowing it to update it's reference files … and, then it commence
  4. thanks for your courtesy, porthos … am attaching the mbst-grab-results.zip file … now waiting on your prognosis. mbst-grab-results.zip
  5. yes … am in the process of doing so … will reply once ready.
  6. win-10(home): 64-bit ver: 19041.508 network-connx: workgroup (not a domain) mbam:  mbam(free) ver  update: 1.0.30894  comp: 1.0.1045  last-updat: 10-06 pop-up (end of scan): "unable to contact update server. please check your internet connection." pop-up (beginning of scan): "unable to contact license server. check your network settings or contact your system administrator for help." unable to update free edition to latest reference-file(s). i understand the latest component package 1.0.1061 … whereas the latest i can update is 1.
  7. " malwarebytes has partnered with mullvad to offer you the online privacy you deserve. " is mbam starting to resort to adware? first i seen of it was tonight. sanction it as you wish … it's still adware. yes … i have read the aforementioned article (faq).
  8. tried editing my post to include screen-caps, with regard to rootkit-scans … to no avail. wish to add second reply to show screen-caps … once rootkit-scans are enabled … thanks.
  9. i definitely agree with Amaroq_Starwind … it takes only a few seconds to check for rootkits … would be nice if rootkit-scans were enabled by default. i mean … in this day and age … why wouldn't a person want to scan for rootkits? personally, i had no idea the feature was even included … and, same as catilley1092, had been using mbar for the past umpteen years. btw, malwarebytes … thanks for the free version of mbam … some of us are on fixed incomes, and unable to afford dedicated software. mbam has caught in
  10. so … essentially, upgrading to mb3 (free) version means we no longer can use mbae and mbarw … do i understand this correctly? ref: forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/191650-malwarebytes-3-frequently-asked-questions/?do=findComment&comment=1077436
  11. final results are in, miekiemoes: after forum … scannned again (no update) … removed infec. scannned again (no update) … clean. rebooted … scannned again (no update) … clean. updated/scanned … clean. issue has been resolved. i'd like to thank the development team for finally catching this bug with the latest reference files … god knows how long this has been on my hard-drive! i'd also like to thank the support team (and mieke) for their part in helping consumers isolate and remove these nasty critters.
  12. ah i see … thanks for the speedy reply, miekiemmoes. guess i am curious why it appeared only "now" rather than "previously" … and the answer for that is because mbam, in the past, never perceived the key as a threat. in any case … i will have mbam remove the key … and reboot/update/rescan to see if the issue has been resolved. thanks for your quick assist, mieke
  13. environment: win-10au (1607-14393.576) 64bit windows-defender (auto-disabled) avg (16.131.7924) mbam ( free default-login: admin am wondering if PUM.Optional.NoDrives is false-positive or legitimate threat. here on support.malwarebytes … not much coverage with regard to PUM offenses/detections … i find that curious. does everyone take a nilly-willy approach and simply white-list or remove PUM incidents? and what do they base their decision on? i have read mbam's cursory faq/PUM article … and thanks for that.
  14. oh! thanks for opening my eyes to this, mieke. even these old eyes of mine could have seen this protrusion. and perhaps they did see it … and unchecked the third-party crap during the install. for others out there wondering about opencandy … wiki and others have tutorials on how to install legitimate software … and totally avoiding opencandy rubbish. one installation method is via command-line and using "/NOCANDY" switch. thanks again, mieke … really appreciated the heads-up. also, kudos to malwarebytes for watching
  15. wanting to submit what seems to be false-positive … i've had the software installed for 1½ years … d/l direct from author's website. EaseUS Partition Master Setup (epm.exe) the free-version i downloaded was at 25.3mb their latest free-version is 10.2 at 29.2mb www.partition-tool.comwww.easeus-down.com/download/epm.exe (the location i had used)http://download3.easeus.com/free/epm.exe(their new location?)am attaching the current suspect-log as well as the *.exe file … hope the large size doesn't crash this thread … thanks for malwareb
