  1. Based on the above, I'm going to just select "Home". Thanks to everyone for the feedback, comments and suggestions!
  2. Hi MWB Forum, I'm currently running MWB Premium v3.6.1.3127. I just received a "Malwarebytes | Premium" "Upgrade Available" popup on my Windows PC. I started (but Red X'd out) when I saw the question asking me "Where are you installing Malwarebyte?". I have a choice of clicking on "Personal Computer" or "Work Computer". Why am I now being asked this and what are the implications of how I answer that question? Thanks for your help . . .
  3. Now you're running without any protection. Yep, much simpler, just not safe.
  4. I gave you all an easy workaround in Post# 400 on Pg16. Here it is again embellished: Workaround until fix released: 1. Using the Windows Desktop, right Click MWB icon in Windows System Tray (ie. where clock is> and Exit it. 2. Then go into <Windows> Action Center (in Control Panel's Security section), dropdown both Virus Protection and also Spyware, click the blue View link, select/change to Windows Defender for both. Nothing to uninstall, no reboots, no gnashing of teeth, no surfing or running programs without AV/Malware protection. Just a simple workaround whose only
  5. I just saw my very first Windows 8.1 "Running Low on Memory" form. That was at about 27GB RAM used on a 32GB RAM box. Yep, Malwarebytes Services running CPU at higher than normal and Memory counting up like a rocket launching. At 18GB and I just rebooted about 10 mins ago. Also - This may or may not be related, but I'll ask anyway: Has anyone else had random BSOD's on hal.dll + ntoskrnl.exe lately? (I do not want to discuss the details of that here, but just want to see if the BSOD's might be related to the MWB issue). Workaround until fix released: Right Click MWB in Tray and Ex
  6. I can't believe I can't edit/correct my own post. Geez! Please ignore my original post above. Here's the corrected version: Hi MWB forum, Here's a couple heads-ups on MWB (as of v3.1.2.1733): 1. When installed on Win7, where Microsoft Security Essentials (aka MSE) is already installed, if you want MWB to handle anti-virus instead of MSE, there's no prompt by the MWB install/upgrade wizard to advise you to uninstall MSE (and reboot) before installing MWB . 2. "Settings | Scan Schedule | the default "Normal" scheduled scan" : a. First, there is no "Reset to Default" but

On Win8 and Win8 Operation Type is Threat, Scheduled Options (via Advanced button) Scan within Archives is enabled. Frequency defa
  8. (For whatever reason, I can no longer edit my post above. Here's the revised conclusion to that post) : As another test, I just downloaded the eicar.com.txt file ( https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com.txt ). I removed the ".txt", right clicked on it for a MWB scan, and MWB says: That is not reassuring by any means :-( For now, I'm leaving it at "NEVER register . . .". At least this way, I know anti-virus at the file level is working via Windows Defender. I click on eicar.com and at least I get : I also get this one: And as before, (with Defender running for file
  9. Hi leinieman, I'm running version: Today upon startup of Win8.1 I was greeted with the all to familiar MWB warning that Web Protection was turned off. Keying off of your success, I tried this and it worked for me today (so far, and I've done a couple reboots since) : I didn't uninstall anything. I opened MWB | Protection tab | turned on Web Protection, and as usual, it just sit there spinning "Starting". Next (as you suggested) I chose the non-default "Never register . . . " I closed MWB, waited less than a minute, and the Web Protection came on by itself. Having joy
  10. Before I have to jump through hoops, please let me ask this question in a different way: When MWB is installed on a Win8.1 PC, and the user logs into the traditional Windows Desktop (ie. not Metro), is the user suppose to see a highlighted MWB icon on the Task bar ? Thanks again . . .
  11. HI Firefox, Thank you for the reply, Please allow me to make a correction to my observed issue: In my OP, I said, ". . . Instead, MBW reduces itself to the Task bar, and is there flashing.". I know I've seen that flashing icon in the Taskbar before, but today it just a highlighted icon (non-flashing), like the icon you'd see if you opened up Word or Excel. If I right click on that icon, I see "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Notifications", pin this program to task bar", and "Close window". Also note that I have already scheduled a weekly Automated "Threat scan" that is working (I see it ran i
  12. Hi forum menbers, I have MWB set to start when Windows starts. After I log into Windows, MWB starts as desired, but it doesn't just automatically reduce itself to the System Tray (ie. where the time, day and date display). Instead, MBW reduces itself to the Task bar, and is there flashing. That forces me to have to manally open MWB, then "X" out, just to get it to go away from the task bar. I would like not to have to manually intervene every time I log into Windows. How can I change MWB to just load silently and show in the System Tray like most anti-virus/anti-malware products do? I appr
