  1. Yes, I'm running that same version and build of Avast but without any problems to date - fingers crossed.................
  2. I installed an Avast program update on 30/3/2017 and I've seen no problems running Avast and Malwarebytes 3.0 on my Windows 7 64 bit system.
  3. Ron, Sorry to chip in, but I'm a little confused by your reply - should the second part of your reply read "shouldn't really need to do it often"?
  4. I can also confirm that I now seem to get consistent behaviour when visiting http://iptest.malwarebytes.org/- I get the warning from the Malwarebytes program and then am redirected to this page https://block.malwarebytes.com/
  5. Count as what?
  6. UPDATE: Just to add that I booted up the laptop this morning to check the settings again and found that Enable Self Protection Module Early Start was switched OFF and I was not able to change the setting. I'm not absolutely sure that it was switched ON after my reinstall of the BETA over the last version, but I think it was I deactivated my registration, uninstalled BETA Preview 3.0.6 CU4, rebooted, reinstalled it, entered my registration details and was then able to change Enable Self Protection Module Early Start to ON. Everything else seems to be working as expected. Just goes to show that I should have probably followed instructions and uninstalled the old version first
  7. It amazes me how software pirates justify their actions - theft is theft, however you dress it up.
  8. I have a minimal P6100 processor in my laptop for reasons of economy and because I don't run any really demanding programs (and no games), but I jacked the memory up to 8 GB, which helps. I've avoided a setting that might run a scan at startup because Registry Backup runs at the first boot of any day that I use the laptop, and that IS quite processor intensive. But I'll probably follow your example on scanning scheduling if the option to reduce processing priority appears in Malwarebytes 3.0. Thanks!
  9. Oops! Yes, I should have done a clean install also, but failed to read the instructions in my excitement at having a new version to play with. However, still running without problems I'd turned off scheduled scans previously because I assumed it would slow my laptop down too much if it started to scan while I was doing something else - I was just testing scan to make sure it completed OK.
  10. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling? If that doesn't work, uninstalling and then using the Malwarebytes mb-clean tool to get rid of all traces of the previous installation before re-installation should work.
  11. Just to say that I've been testing the latest BETA Preview 3.0.6 CU4 which I installed over the top of 3.0.6.1469 Component Version 1.0.75 and all seems to be running well. A scan still sees the CPU running at 100%, but I guess that will be addressed in later releases I was previously running Malwarebytes Premium 3.0.6.1469 Component Version 1.0.75 which also ran well with the exception of occasional loss of a Real Time Protection module which could be fixed by restarting Malwarebytes or a reboot.

  12. To get meaningful help in this forum, you each need to start your own thread with details of your operating system, how and when the problem(s) occurred and other relevant details. You should also carry out the steps shown in the post below and provide the logs and files asked for. A Malwarebytes representative or knowledgeable forum member should then be able to help you.
  13. You're welcome!
  14. Another positive experience. I run Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium with the free version of Avast 2017 (with a bare-boned installation thereof, using a customised installation and excluding SecureLine VPN, Cleanup, SafeZone Browser, Passwords, SafePrice, Software Updater and Avast Online Security - none of which I feel I need, or are bloatware or I have covered by other software) - they seem to play well together on my Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bit setup. For extra insurance and following advice given by Malwarebytes staff here, I've added the files below to Avast's exclusions :- C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbae64.sys C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBAMChameleon.sys C:\Windows\System32\drivers\MBAMSwissArmy.sys C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mwac.sys C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\farflt.sys C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MbamPt.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbam.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\assistant.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMWsc.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\mbamtray.exe C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware\MBAMService.exe I've also added the Avast program folder to Malwarebytes' exclusions. Hope this helps..........
  15. Yes, I agree - being now retired, I updated my old version of Office 2003 to Office 2010 Home and Student and bought a separate copy of Outlook 2010. .Work well with 64-bit Windows 7. I tend to buy such things via Amazon, or Ebay with PayPal - generally safer in my experience.
