  1. Hey Guys and Gals, I went to a site I have heard about to get a trial on software. But Malwarebytes browser guard gives block warning. I am pretty sure the site is safe but wanted to check first before I add exception. Or if Malwarebytes can check and add it to safe list. Site is https://www.libertystreet.com/homemanage_downloads.htm and I clicked the trial download button and then was blocked by browser guard. Thanks in advance Gren
  2. Hello, Thanks for fast reply and help. Have a good one and stay safe. Fred
  3. Hello, I would do that but they are temp folders so I dont exclude them. Plus it never detected file in VS folders and only the temp folders. Thanks Fred
  4. Hello, I had updated my visual studio about a week ago. Malwarebytes ran its own scan today and is reporting the following. Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 8/17/20 Scan Time: 4:50 PM Log File: 99347db4-e0d3-11ea-9e4b-f0038cd25fe4.json -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.1003 Update Package Version: 1.0.28633 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 19041.450) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Scan Summary- Scan Type: Threat Scan Scan Initia
  5. Hey, I had system checked not to long ago and I monitor it quite well now. I read online that others have same or similar issue with the game "Fallout 76". I have modified GPU settings for it with little change. As for system I have run multiple benchmark tools like 3dMark and all pass great. I keep asking Bethesda for their server ip so I can ping them but the will not give server info. So i pinged and traceroute their main website and I see a lot of time outs and high numbers. In Canada get good numbers but within 1 or 2 hops into USA numbers crash or time out.
  6. Hello Exile360, Problem is I cant find the program if any causing the issue. The game even when i do a selective startup using msconfig gets massive lag. Yet when i change the game set to high priority the game runs fine in normal and selective startup. It bugs me as all my other games and I have lots of online games run fine! it is only the one game causing me issues. I tried port forwarding but then it screws up my housemates games. We all have gaming rigs, thou they dont play same game causing me issues. But if we all play wow, eq2, Aion, Elder Scrolls and ot
  7. Hello Exile360, Thanks for the fast reply to my post, I really appreciate it. I asked as I need to always have a game start set to high priority when it is run. Alt Tab does not work as it screws up when I go back into game. I was told Process Hacker 2 would do the job but wont install until i know its safe. Thanks again for the help. Gren
  8. Hello Guys and Gals, Is "PRocess Hacker 2" safe? I found old thread https://blog.malwarebytes.com/101/how-tos/2018/11/advanced-tools-process-hacker/ So I assume PRocess Hacker 2 which is made by same person should be safe? Thanks in advance Gren
  9. Hello Maurice, Sorry for the late reply. Also thanks for the help. I ran multiple scans and issue appears resolved. I ran Norton Emergency scan tool and it removed something and all is working fine now. So I no longer need help as all other scan from Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, adwcleaner and spybot all show up clean. So I think this case can be closed. Thanks again for the help. Gren

  12. Hello, Running windows 10 Pro and have some strange things happening. Restarts just sits at restarting window endlessly, Tons of command prompt windows (I assume as they are black like command prompts) popping up and vanishing just after boot and/or logon. Not all programs close when i close them and stay open. I should add that I ran SFC /scannow and Multiple DISM commands and all show no issues. Not sure if infected but help would be great. I have large host file that I need left as it is without being deleted please. Here are the attached files. Thanks in a

  14. Hey Guys, How do you manually run a threat scan now in v4.0.4? When I hit scan it only does a quick scan and I am blind as I cant see option to manually run a threat scan like before. Thanks in advance Gren
  15. Hey Guys, I have a problem I cant seem to fix and need some help. I had a problem with a program I was installing so company had me go into Malwarebytes and click option to disable Start Malwarebytes at Windows Startup. I then restarted computer and did what i had to. Then I started Malwarebytes manually and selected the option Start Malwarebytes at Windows Startup and enable it again. After a restart Malwarebytes did not start when windows rebooted. I checked the setting to make sure it was enabled and tried another restart but again Malwarebytes did not
  16. Hello LDTate, Thanks for the fast reply and help with my issue. Attached is the file you requested. System seems to run a bit better which is nice. The mystery icon from taskbar notification area is gone now and has not returned. I know a couple weeks ago when I was trying to find the issue I ran sfc /scannow and it found nothing and then I ran multiple DISM command and they found nothing. Then I found a page on microsoft and it said to run Dism component store fix command and it did find 4 problems thou not sure why other check I ran did not catch it. It fixed 4 issu
  17. Hey, Follow-up question if one computer on the network has malware can it infect the others even thou we dont share files? And if I have malware could that be the cause? I only play some games and use photo & Video programs. And My browser is now run in ShadeSandbox to make sure I dont get malware if I somehow click on bad site. I had Sandboxie but Microsoft removed it as a non-compatible program when system went to 1809. Thanks Grenpara
  18. Hey Guys and Gals, i have a Windows 10 Home 64 bit system and it is off the shelf with its own Factory restore partition. I am thinking of doing a fresh Windows 10 install but have some questions. Since the drive has multiple partitions if i use the Windows 10 installer made with Media Creation tool, will it wipe those partitions if I reinstall windows from scratch? Or how Would I do a fresh install so drive "c:" is on the drive as a single partition and not partitioned? Next, Should mobo chipset drivers be put on the system during Windows 10 install and not after Windows
  19. Hello Guys and Gals, I think I have some malware that is making my computer act strange. First here are the files post says to post here. So whats happening is a mystery icon in notification area that I cant see or click and when i open task manager it vanishes. Then when I close Task Manager the hidden icon shows back up. I see no icon just an extra space in the notification area. Also seems like Windows Explorer keeps resetting. What I mean is all desktop icons and all taskbar icon vanish and then after a minute or so they all reappear. It is happening often
  20. Hey Ron, I had typed a massive message for you and somehow it did not take so I retype some of it. The issue of VSS may not be broken, it seems backup tools can forbid/lock vss so Windows Restore features do not work. My system seems to have 2 backup tools One I did install and one that was here. Also if you look at this link It explains about VSS issues and that link you supplied me yesterday also gave me some info. I spent till 6am on system reading many websites because of the link you gave me. And I ran a CMD elevated prompt to get some info which is below:
  21. Hey Ron, First I really want to thank you for your help with this matter and from past matters with old pc's. You and others go far beyond great support and help and what you do is what makes you the most trusted Companies I have ever used. When I bought MBAM years ago I never thought about support but only the product. Now I don't know what I or others would do without you, so Thank You truly. I will get treesize and run it to get a clear picture of files and data. I got Bitdefender Total Security installed and it already scanned my "c:" drive and shows as clean. DO
  22. Hello Ron, Ok I will download and install bit defender. As for space I have nothing on "c:"or very little. During initial setup of computer I made d: drive the data drive for everything. So even text files docs, downloads, all go on d: and f: is my gaming drive. As for VSS, I could always get a backup program just in case to make backups. Or if we are lucky fix vss. Right now after all the steps you gave me and that FRST fix my "c:" drive is up to 37.9gb free out of 118gb drive Thanks in advance Fred
  23. Hey Ron, Right now with Kaspersky off the system everything is running fine. Firefox is off the system and I am in edge: Drives are running normal and I have access to sites the Kaspersky was blocking. Even today Microsoft forced some updates on me and it took them fine. Dvd/bluray drive has not been opening or closing by itself today (knock on wood). Microsoft site, Kaspersky and others I can access fine again as well as the web. I contacted ASUS as computer is only a few weeks old and they suggest a full factory reset. If I go that route I have to uninstall my sof
  24. Ok, So now that were at this point. Is system clean of malware/virus? If so is it safe to put virus protection back on system? I decided to switch away from Kaspersky and Purchase bitdefender. I did not install it or download it yet. Or should I wait until issue is fixed? Thansk
  25. No Acronis has never been on this system. Thanks Fred
