  1. BillH99999 It only pauses the update for the days selected. So after the selected days the updates download. I checked when I received updates with a 6 in the box, All updates were received but 6 days after the release. I thought manual checking for updates might over ride that but it didn't.
  2. I had exactly the same problem, Tried to manually update win 10 v 1903 and it said up to date. I knew that was not he case. I checked the advanced options in the update window. Scroll down to the bottom where it says "A quality update includes security improvements . It can be deferred for this many days" Change the drop down box to 0 and go back and recheck for updates manually . If it's like mine it will find the update immediately. I had overlooked that. Must have delayed the updates when feature update 1903 happened.
  3. @LAVA Component Update 3.6.1 v1.0.508 was released on December 7th. The Tensforums article you linked described issues back in November before the offending CU update had been released to the general public so would appear to be unrelated. However I agree with @abs7125 and @mkaz that it does appear likely to be more widespread than they could know. When a computer freezes and needs a hard reboot or is simply powered off normally how is that sort of data differentiated?
  4. Ever since Component Update 3.6.1 v1.0.508 was released on December 7th there has been a steady stream of users complaining of frozen systems , crashing or slow systems attributable to that specific CU update . Malwarebytes is aware of the issue which they are trying to fix. As the update propagates more systems are being affected. That said the folks at MB insist that only a minor percentage of machines are affected. I have taken the step of preventing the Component package updating to the 508 version and have none of the above problems on either the win 7 x64 or Win X x64. If you still have the older installer then revert to that version and turn off the automatic downloading of the application component updates till the issue has been resolved. (Go to Settings then the Application tab) It seems that those symptoms have been "prevented" when users (1) turn off MB web protection or (2) turn off exploit protection module in MB. Also suggested as There is also an add on for Chrome to provide online protection similar to the main MB. None of the above is a real solution but till MB fixes the issue that the CU 508 has reintroduced or introduced it is a work around to prevent crashing and freezing. I would suggest it prudent to have another antivirus ie Avast or AVG free installed alongside in any event.
  5. It isn't OS specific. This laptop is running Win 7 and has a similar error report. It is described as APPCRASH . The crash is not very obvious as occurs on shutdown so easy for many users to be unaware. Win 7 does have the action center flagging the error and offering "checking for solutions". I imagine that would be fruitless exercise anyway.
  6. No problem at all. You are wise to be careful and if in doubt check.
  7. The version you have is 3.4.5 and the latest version of Malwarebytes is 3.5.1 so it is probably a correct notification. There is indeed a new version to the one you have. So I would say it is legitimate. What makes you think it isn't?
