  1. That's a shame - I don't have either of those problems on Windows 10 Pro x64 1909.
  2. I don't know whether the latest version will resolve your issue, but please post back with your feedback.
  3. There has just been a new Malwarebytes update that addresses some issues- I would suggest you give it a try............
  4. Just an update:-- I still got a few incidents of my wireless connection dropping out since my last post and did some more work trying different drivers for the Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 on the ThinkPad T450s. I had been running the recommended driver installed from Windows 10 Update, but then tried the tool on the Lenovo site which recommended another driver, which didn't improve the dropouts. I then went to the the Intel site and their tool recommended yet another driver, version Since installing that driver, I've not had any more episodes of dropouts, so I suspect that the fault lay elsewhere than with Malwarebytes - so thanks for all the help here and apologies for the wild goose chase!
  5. @LiquidTensionDon't have the automatic dumps switched on at the moment, I'm afraid - but I've not had a reoccurrence of the issue since a clean reinstall of MB via the Support tool, so perhaps just my setup. If problems reoccur I'll try to do some more disciplined testing and reporting. Thanks as ever!
  6. I'm not exactly sure whether the problems I have with Desktop Search are mine or Window 10's, it's not something I've devoted much time to - been too busy getting other things sorted. So Ihave to take a deep breath, go back to the beginning and ..read all the info I can and make sure everything is set up correctly before I start pointing fingers. I've always (well, for 20 + years) used Office Outlook as a contact manager and it's worked pretty well. I've got loads of history in PST files and Windows search, certainly in W7, would pull stuff out in a trice.I don't rely on it entirely for emails as my accounts are all Gmail or use domains I own as a portal for Gmail, and I can use webmail in extremis or a Gmail app and still keep in touch. PST files can be a bit fragile and using CompanionLink to sync with Google Calendar can be a bit too exciting at times, and if I was starting again I'd do it all differently but I'm too long in the tooth to change. And better the devil you know......... Windows 10 doesn't search PST files and one has to use a third party solution - crazy, but true. What I want to do is search the content of Word, Excel etc files for particular content and I thought I knew how to do this successfully but it doesn't seem to be happening just now and my brain has turned to mush. To add to this, I know that there has been an issue with W10 1909 recently that's screwed up Search. It's not an immediate problem because Lookeen works superbly for Outlook where 90% of my off-the-web searches take place and I'm a retired guy in rural France with more important issues that should be occupying my time (or so my wife tells me!) but my natural curiosity bugs me to solve it. So one for another day......... But I've reinstalled MB4 and excluded Casper and I'll come back on those issues if they reoccur. And look further at Windows search later and report back.
  7. Good thoughts on the Casper Backup, I'll do that next after I do the MB reinstallation. Not just me thenon Controlled Folder Access then! Now, if I can only get Windows Desktop Search running properly in Windows 10, I might stop missing Windows 7 altogether. Used to be able to perform fast searches on the contents of my Outlook PST and Archive PST with W7 but, without telling me, they took that away in W8 +, so I invested in Lookeen Search which does a great job of searching PST files. It can also replace Windows Desktop Search but I haven't really investigated that part of it, so I guess that's the next step. ............
  8. Thanks for your advice @Porthos - I did have controlled folder access switched on the other day just to try it out but switched it back off as it gave me more grief than I thought it was worth, and it's still showing as off. Perhaps it was on when the last MB update occurred, but I don't think so. Do you think a reboot and a clean reinstallation of MB via the Support Tool might be the best next step?
  9. I haven't noticed anything amiss while using the laptop but Reliability Monitor has recorded two instances of an APPCRASH associated with the Malwarebytes Tray Icon, yesterday and today. I attach the Support Tool report that I've just generated after reviewing today's Reliability Monitor status - the APPCRASH details are below. If you could throw any light on the cause or pass on the results if it helps developers. I have had a few issues show up in the Reliability Monitor but nothing I view as serious incidents. Everything seems to run well and I ran CHKDSK and SFC with other diagnostic checks. If there's no obvious cause, I'll run the tool again and reinstall Malwarebytes 4.

  10. Well, I've been running a few days now with all 4 protection modules activated and haven't experienced any dropouts. The only changes I have made that I could suspect might be responsibleffor the improvement is that I let the Lenovo driver update service update 3 or 4 drivers. My policy had been to rely on Windows Update for drivers rather than Lenovo unless I could identify a specific need for the latter but perhaps not the right policy here?
  11. Hi @LiquidTension - thanks for your help The results of running the BAT file are attached - I still haven't had any WiFi dropouts since disabling Web Protection, so I'll give it another day or two to make sure that WP is an issue and then proceed to the steps in the second part of your post. ipconfig_result.txt
  12. Perhaps too early to be certain, but I used the ThinkPad for quite a while yesterday during which time I had no instances of the WiFi dropouts with Web Protection disabled in Malwarebytes Premium. I'll leave WP disabled until the next Beta version is released and then try turning it on again after I've installed it - if I get any further instances of WiFi dropping in the interim, I'll re-post here. Otherwise, Malwarebytes Premium appears to be running well with fast scans and no errors. Despite the VSS errors discussed earlier in this thread, all backups run with Casper 10.1 (I've used Casper for 20 years or more) have completed successfully with no errors shown in that application's logs. That includes both bootable disk copies and system images. System Restore also appears to operate correctly, as does Tweaking.com's Registry Backup (although who knows with System Restore whether it's going to work the next time?)
  13. I hadn't got round to disabling Web Protection before my internet connection dropped again - so it's now disabled again and we'll see what happens......... Thanks again for the support.
  14. Yes, just carried out the clean uninstall/reinstall - should I submit new logs now that's done? I've been pretty religious about checking for and installing Windows Updates and I ran a computer audit with Belarc today that confirmed everything was up to date.
