  1. Here's a temporary fix for the temporary fix: Activate another desktop (Windows key+tab) so you have a spare desktop. Click Winkey+tab so you see all windows, including the MB tray. While the windows are all visible, use the mouse to drag the MB tray window into the spare desktop. Return to your primary desktop. The tray window is now on the spare desktop and it won't show up with the alt-tab combination. To see it you have to switch to the spare window and use alt-tab. OK, so it's a band-aid that covers another band-aid... but it works for me.
  2. Thanks! That clarifies it for me. MB is working just fine, and I have no alt-tab problems. But I did have to manually create a link to the Malwarebytes Tray Application in my startup folder. For some reason the upgrade either removed it and didn't put another one there.

  4. Porthos, I took your advice some time ago and added all those exclusions to Windows Defender and everything worked fine. After one of the Windows 10 upgrades I now get an Action Center message saying those files were excluded during a scan. This happens at every scan, every day, and I have to go in and clear the message. Are you having this annoyance too? Do you know of a way to have Defender not bother to report those particular files? I suppose I could just remove the exclusions from Defender and see what happens but I'm a cautious type, like you.... Thanks, Mwewe
  5. Karchie, Have you tried to reset the performance counters as suggested in the post by AdvancedSetup that I quoted? It workd for some people and for both my computers. If you are using Defender and haven't already tried exclusions, you might also try adding the exclusions suggested by Porthos: I don't think a reset would help, but in case you want to do something similar, you can do an in-place upgrade repair, which effectively resets without removing your programs and data. You can see how to do that here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/16397-repair-install-windows-10-pla
  6. There is one more thing you could try. It's easy and won't take long... and it's worked for people with the same symptoms. Check the forum entry at:
  7. Well, my conjecture was not the solution. After correcting the exclusions, it took only a day before my system froze. It happened when I tried to launch the MB UI. This time I waited and it un-froze in around 4 minutes. My diagnostics show it's the Malwarebytes program assistant.exe that initiated the problem, then the Malwarebytes service went into resource deadlock. I couldn't see why the performance monitors would be involved, especially since it's a newly refreshed system, but I tried AdvancedSetup's suggestions anyway. The moment I tried to restart the Windows Management Instrumentat
  8. Hey, OinkOink! I found an article that may explain what's going on. It seems the exclusions lists for MB 3.0 is different from those of 2.0. So you may need to re-examine and change them. I'm using Windows Defender (renamed Essentials) and I saw this article: https://support.malwarebytes.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2650097--malwarebytes-and-microsoft-security-essentials-conflicts?b_id=6520 It says "If your computer is unresponsive, wait 10-15 minutes for it to become responsive and then complete steps 1-8"; does that sound familiar? The steps 1-8 go through the exclusion pro
  9. It's easy to believe the problem is somehow your fault because it doesn't happen to everyone. If it did, they wouldn't release it. But developers frequently have newer computers, or at least computers dedicated to developing their product. Even the rest of the company doesn't have computers typical of home users. Computers are such a messy mixture nowadays that it's nearly impossible to make a bug-free product. But it sounds like yours is most likely apretty standard system, so this bug shouldn't have gotten past the filters. But that said, it's business as usual to release a product and
  10. Thanks, Aura. I found build 1291 in the main FAQ pages. I think I'll pass on upgrading to build 1300. I'm currently not optimistic about any MB software updates. Maybe later, after I forget my last experience.
  11. Is there a link somewhere to the last version of Anti-exploit? I'd really like to revert back to the previous versions of mbam and mbae. I've already spent too many unpaid hours trying to troubleshoot version 3. Thanks
  12. You're more patient than I am -- I've never waited 10 minutes to see if it'll un-freeze! I have the same problem in Windows 10. I refreshed the OS in place just a week or two ago and still have the freeze. I've run Malwarebytes for many years with no problems, but this last upgrade just broke my system. So I'm running without it and the first thing I notice is how much faster the system is. And my system is 3.4 gHz with eight processess and 16 gBytes, so it should run fast... but not with Malwarebytes aboard. Like you, I've spent hours troubleshooting it and have finally given up. I'
  13. Just a little bump on this, Pedro: I'm still experiencing this problem with version 1.06.1018. It's an annoyance because it is definitely misbehaving. I occasionally re-start my explorer to reset a few other mis-behaviors, and when I do, I lose the MBAE icon. It's still running, and I can bring up the program from it's shortcut, or I can kill and re-start the process, but it's still in the back of my mind and is a small irritant. It's irritating mainly because all the other MB programs are of such high professional quality that this flaw pops right out! So please check to make sure thi
  14. I just wanted to add some info you might find useful. I was having similar problems with a Vista system here. My screen looked like your image, only with a later database version. Clean re-installs/reboots did not help. Scanning would crash because it attempted database updates first. Database updates always just crashed with essentially no diagnostic report other than Windows saying something was wrong and failing to find a reason. I have no browser guardian, communicator cleaner, or any such thing. The only other monitors are Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender. I have the r
  15. In case anyone reading is curious, the problem was in some internal permissions on XP system files. Ron sent me the tools and the system works beautifully again. Malwarebytes Pro and Avira are working together, each ignoring the other, using minimal memory and cpu cycles. Malwarebytes rocks!
