  1. Thanks for your help, Devin - all seems to be working correctly now.
  2. Just rebooted computer and the following text seems to have been added to the mb-clean-results.txt file I posted above:- 2017-09-26 12:08:01.699 Error!! postreboot.txt is not found in registry. 2017-09-26 12:15:43.760 --------END OF LOG FILE ---------- Don't know whether that's significant?
  3. Hi Devin, The first time I ran the mb-clean routine, there was a problem with downloading the latest MB3 version - I suspect a Chrome problem, as I experience the occasional difficulty with .exe downloads with it. I changed the default browser to IE 11 and this time the routine ran without hitch. I attach the mb-check-results.zip file along with mb-clean-results.txt. All seems OK at the moment. mb-check-results.zip mb-clean-results.txt
  4. Hi Defin, It's a laptop and gets rebooted daily. I've just rebooted and the System Tray icon is still missing, so I'll run mb-clean and report back.
  5. Still getting occasional instances of MB3 Premium System Tray Icon not loading and some real-time Protection Modules not working at startup. Clicking on failed Protection Module doesn't start it. Shutting down and restarting usually brings things back to normal. See attached Dashboard screen snip & MB Check results.

  6. ransomware for xp

    CryptoPrevent 8 from FoolishIT provides a level of protection against Ransomware on XP. Nothing is going to give you total protection, however. I use CryptoPrevent Premium on Windows 7 alongside Malwarebytes 3 Premium but, never having been attacked, can only say that the product looks effective.
  7. Settings & Exclusions Export/import function

    Yes, I agree - I'd like to see the function added in future.
  8. amazing

    Awesome!
  9. If you're running Windows 10 and have Fast Boot enabled (which is the default), shutting down and restarting doesn't carry out full reboot. Try using the Restart option instead and see if it resolves your issue.
  10. Just to say that I installed 3.2.2 2018 over the previous 3.1.1 2018 BETA and all went well, apart from a heart-stopping moment when the Dashboard informed me that "your subscription ends today" in red letters before changing to the expected Premium Dashboard (I have a lifetime Premium edition). Everything seems to have carried across apart from my Language : English (Queen's Original) which had reverted to English - American and changed the date format. Annoying, but I know you are aware of the BUG and will fix it in time, I hope. Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium 64 bit - Malwarebytes Premium 3.2.2 - Microsoft Security Essentials, CryptoPrevent 8.0.2
  11. Setting up an account at malwarebytes.com

    That link allows you to log in if you already have an account but you can't create a new user account. I'm guessing that a user account is only created if the user is paying annually and that there isn't one for a lifetime licence - or have I got that wrong? My Premium licence is lifetime and I don't remember ever having an account set up.
  12. complimentary antivirus

    So, do I read you correctly - you don't use Malwarebytes in active mode now at all?
  13. complimentary antivirus

    Nobody, absolutely nobody, in the real world is going to get 100% detection rates of viruses and malware. You can provide test results showing 100% detection rate of a group of test samples but it means little to the end user, apart from giving them a false sense of security. Backing up your computer(s) regularly to at least two other locations, exercising common sense in web browsing and email handling, and using Malwarebytes Premium alongside a reputable and trusted antivirus package of your choice is what I recommend to those who ask my advice. And my personal preference is to use CryptoPrevent as well as taking regular registry backups with Tweaking.com's Registry Backup.
  14. Thanks Devin, Outlook.exe protection must have disappeared at an earlier stage, and I didn't notice. The log was created following the boot up where the System Tray icon was absent and before a subsequent reboot.
  15. Hi Devin, The link in your post didn't work but I've downloaded and run the mb_check file and the results are attached. Interestingly, when I fired up the laptop today, the MB Tray Icon was not present although, as far as I can tell, Malwarebytes is loaded and active. Windows 7 SP1 64 bit Home Premium Malwarebytes 3.2.1 2008 Beta MSE CryptoPrevent Premium 8.0.4.2 I run a daily registry backup on startup using the Tweaking.com's Registry Backup 3.5.3 as a component of Windows Repair All In One 4.0.2 - this uses the Volume Shadow Copy service and I sometimes wonder whether this might interfere in some way with the smooth initialisation of other services, like antivirus and antimalware?
