  1. Yes. I was awaiting some sort of result from the zip file I uploaded. Cheemag
  2. I've downloaded the Virus Total thing and will try it later. The registry hack was applied without problems, but made no difference even after a reboot.. I'm about to give up on this - it's more bother than it's worth. Regards Cheemag
  3. I've done this time and time again. It doesn't work. Has nothing been discovered in the .zip file I uploaded a few days ago ? -- Cheemag
  4. Me too. I've more or less given up on MWB and simply rely on Kaspersky now. Regards Cheemag
  5. So it's an external application. Attached. Hope this helps. --- Cheemag mbst-grab-results.zip
  6. I would, if I could find the function. There's nothing about MBST in the MWB interface programme. The principal reason I use MWB is to scan FILES for malware. For everything else I have Kaspersky IS 2019. I can see no other way of scanning a file other than via the context menu. Regards Cheemag
  7. "Scan with Malwarebytes" context menu item missing in 3.7.1 despite being activated in settings.
  8. Thanks and sorry for the delay. I came to the conclusion that it was probably due to an extension. I disabled them all and restarted. No block. Enabled AdBlock Pro and got the hanstrackr block. So it's due to AdBlock Pro. I gathered from search that 'hanstracker'/'hanstrackr' was adware ! I'd also imagined AdBlock Pro to be a legitimate extension. I'll look for another ad-blocker. Thanks to all who responded. Regards Cheemag
  9. Every time I launch the Vivaldi browser MWB blocks Vivaldi from accessing "www.hanstrackr.com" (which is a malware site). Below that it gives the IP, which is something entirely different. According to ADW Cleaner the machine is clean and there are no obvious signs of hanstracker. It would seem rather unlikely that Vivaldi is deliberately trying to access a malware site. What is going on here? Regards Cheemag PS This MWB forum site appears to be attempting canvas tracking according to my anti-trackers ....
  10. Good Morning, I have two confusing instructions here. The NordVPN application did not trigger any warnings this morning so perhaps the exclusion of the executable has finally worked. It's nothing to do with the scan, which comes up clean. The VPN executable needs to send data to Cloudfare which was seen as malicious - I don't know why. It's not, although the action could be interpreted as malicious. However it doesn't bother my security application, Kaspersky 2019 ! Regards Cheemag
  11. MWB exclusions wizard stops responding when I attempt to exclude a folder. c:\Programme Files (x86)/NordVPN/ c:\Programme Files (x86)/NordVPN/NordPVN.exe is already excluded to prevent MWB flagging perfectly legal outgoing operations initiated by this executable. (Windows 7 Pro MWB Premium v??? - up-to-date) Regards Cheemag
  12. I see. Thank you. I can delete it ... Regards
  13. Good Afternoon, What is FRSTEnglish.exe in my downloads directory. Is it malware ? Web search is inconclusive. (Windows 7, MWB Premium latest) Cheemag
  14. Hello, No error. The [Activate Licence] box is greyed out/unclickable. Cheemag
  15. I uninstalled MWB as it appeared to be preventing Firefox from launching. I posted on this forum and sent files but it was never resolved. I have nave now re-installed MWB and decided to put up with the problem, but cannot enter my registration details. I.e. it reverts to free. -- Cheemg
  16. GM Indeed it is. I re-activated/hijacked this conversation (a previous conversation started by me) rather than start a new one. Regards Cheemag
  17. Good Afternoon (or whatever), Here you go ... Regards Cheemag mbst-grab-results.zip
  18. Good Afternoon (or whatever), All of this I could do, but I've already uninstalled MWB to be able to use my browser without the hassle it was causing me. So presumably I'd have to re-install MWB for this to work. I'll see what I can do, as I miss the MWB scan for PUPs etc altho' I have Kaspersky to scan for the really serious stuff. May be a day or two for a re-installation to 'bed in'. I'll get back ... Regards Cheemag
  19. Only for a time. MWB 3 is now causing the same problem with Firefox: with MWB 3 installed Firefox refuses to launch and one or other of its two running processes has to be terminated before Firefox can be started. Firefox occasionally appears to close down, but in fact is still running, which upsets CCleaner.. Whether the closedown problem is due to MWB I do not know, but suffice to say that if MWB is uninstalled the startup problem at least goes away, indicating that it is due to MWB and not Firefox. Are there any updates to fix this problem? I can't surely be the only sufferer ! -- Cheemag
  20. [SOLVED] That's fixed it. Thanks to all who responded. Regards Cheemag
  21. Thank you DCollins for the direct link. I have the results file. What do I do with it? I suppose I could attach it to this post ... see what happens when I re-install. " Once you reboot it will ask you if you want to re-install Malwarebytes " No it doesn't ! Regards Cheemag
  22. This doesn't work. After clicking the link for the clean tool - "MB-Clean" below I get there but nothing is downloaded and I very quickly end up back at that link: Quote: We're super excited to announce availability of an update to both our MB-Check and MB-Clean utilities. For MB-Check, we've updated this to included both support for the latest Malwarebytes 3.1 as well as the ability to automatically collect log files. For MB-Clean, this has also been updated to support the latest Malwarebytes 3.1 as well as some other sweet enhancements. See above to get the latest versions as well as the detailed changelogs: MB-Check | MB-Clean Unquote Please provide a download link that works. Regards Cheemag
  23. Good Morning, My previously registered MWB-3 has reverted to Free. Unable to enter an ID and key in [Activate Licence] - only [Exit] and [Purchase] are clickable - middle option greyed-out and unreadable. Regards Cheemag
  24. Thanks. I'll get the download. Regards Cheemag
