  1. The spectre/Meldown update caused a LOT of problems, it was AMD processors which were affected but not Intel have admitted their processors are also affected by slowdowns & constant restarts plus other annoyances. Intel/Microsoft released a patch which turns off the spectre update by changing a registry entry: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management] "FeatureSettingsOverride"=dword:00000001 "FeatureSettingsOverrideMask"=dword:00000003 ; 3 = Disable both ; 2 = Disable meltdown (Kernel VA Shadow) ; 1 = Disable spectre (Branch Target Injection) ; 0 = Enable both the fix sets both to 1. A restart is required after changing the values but it may require 2 restarts to fully bring the pc back upto speed. For AMD processors it’s advised to download this fix: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4057144
  2. When I had the same problem I was told by the repair shop that the motherboard had failed.
  3. I’ve had the same recently, MBAM premium reverted to free, I went to my malwarebytes & reset my license.
  4. Norton says it’s safe so there’s no problem with malware, however some of the users say if you subscribe you don’t get the package you subscribed to & if you cancel you’re still billed as the subscription isn’t stopped. You could try bleeping computer as they have a dedicated team of users who specialise in malware removal as well as pc/phone problems. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ Then there’s android forum on Mobile Nations: https://forums.androidcentral.com/?utm_medium=navbar&utm_campaign=navigation&utm_source=ac
  5. Good to hear you discovered the cause.
  6. I’ll look into the app on Google apps with Norton to see if it says it’s OK, I’m not near my Android tablet currently. As for popupuireceiver check here: https://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-s4/340210-popupuireceiver.html https://androidforums.com/threads/popupuireceiver.724195/ https://www.scoobynet.com/computer-and-technology-related-34/992883-what-is-popupuireceiver-on-android.html
  7. What was the app’s name? Is the mobile Android or Apple iOS? Was it downloaded from the official store or via a third party store?
  8. Something to consider when copying & pasting is that it can add a space at the end of the key & ID, I have noticed the same when entering my details, there’s a green tick to say the information is valid but receive an error when clicking OK. Have you received an email from mymalwarebytes to confirm the address is valid & created a password? Check your spam folder or the all mail folder in case it’s been mis-filed.
  9. Did you purchase direct from MalwareBytes? If so you can create an account at https://my.malwarebytes.com/ & your key should be listed, if not then you’ll have to contact support & create a ticket. https://support.malwarebytes.com/community/consumer
  10. Did you sign up using the same email address which you used to purchase MBAM (from MB directly)? You have to be using the same address for the license to show.
  11. It may be a simple overheating problem. Have you check the pc’s fans for dust?
  12. If you bought your license via Malwarebytes then you can sign up with the same email address used to purchase to https://www.my.malwarebytes.com & reset your license from there.
  13. Calendar can ‘read’ your messages for any calendar entries & add them to calendar, I’ve found that adding an email account to the Windows mail app also connects that account to both the People app (contacts) & Calendar. My Gmail, Yahoo email accounts are also listed under calendar even though I didn’t add them to calendar so they were added by the mail app.
  14. There a new setting in Windows 10 concerning allowing apps to be installed via MS store only, I remember having to change it to allow installation of my programs after a clean install. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3174483/windows/new-windows-10-feature-blocks-desktop-apps-points-to-windows-store-instead.html To turn off: Go to the new “Apps & features” area of the Settings app. At the top, under “Installing apps,” there is a drop-down menu with three options: “Allow apps from anywhere,” “Prefer apps from the Store, but allow apps from anywhere,” and “Allow apps from the Store only.” However if this is happening after the programs have installed then it’s as nukecad has stated & requires admin privileges to open.
  15. Before running the Fall update I exited MBAM as well as disabling Norton anti virus & firewall & disconnected all USB devices & had no problem. It’s quite possible having MBAM running during the install could prevent it from completing.
  16. Does your Google account have 2-step authentication set up? Calendar is connected to mail so do you receive the same error if you set up the account under the mail app?
  17. If you bought your license from MB direct then you can visit https://my.malwarebytes.com/ & sign up with the email address you used to purchase the license & reset it from there. Much easier & quicker than going through support.
  18. I'd like to know whether DriverBooster has any malware, whether it's being found due to the program having a startup entry or whether it's just a PUA/PUP.
  19. You could try deactivating the license via https://my.malwarebytes.com/ (Only works if you purchased from MB, register using the email address you used to purchase license).
  20. I found it about 10 days ago while looking for something else on this forum. It was certainly a good find for me as I'd been wanting something like that for years. It's certainly easier & quicker than contacting support. Tbh I don't know why it hasn't been publicised more with a sticky post.
  21. You'll just require the email address used to purchase MBAM to create an account so that you can access the website, there'll you'll find the ID & key & be able to deactivate these for reinstalling onto a different computer.
  22. Have you tried accessing https://my.malwarebytes.com/ & deactivating the license there? You'll have to sign up with the email address you used to purchase the license from MalwareBytes.
  23. Have you tried accessing your ID & code via https://my.malwarebytes.com/ & resetting things there? You'll have to sign up with the email address you used to purchase the license from MalwareBytes.
