  1. With Malwarebytes i'm not just getting adsense ads but even intrusive ads that don't have those [x] to close them. Before app version 1.4 every ad was blocked but now no ad gets blocked for me. Opting out of adsense requires cross site tracking to be turned off in safari settings and must remain off according to the website and I for one don't like to be tracked. Currently the reputable adblocker i'm using blocks every ad even those from adsense as a good adblocker should. If adblockers you used showed them then they weren't that good. I'll give malwarebytes another try in the future when they get this fixed
  2. Umm no lol before Malwarebytes ios app version 1.4 I had no trouble with every ad being blocked. If you see the other persons post above he's on app version 1.3.3 with the latest adblock version and seen no ads on the same website that i did see ads. So now I suspect version 1.4 broke something. It would make no sense for someone to download an app to block ads and have to go to a ad agency website to opt out. For testing purposes I downloaded another adblocker and every ad on every website was blocked so I guess for now i'll uninstall malwarebytes ios app until they fix it
  3. I'm not sure why it's not working for me then. I tested the adblocker on my ipad and see the ads on there also
  4. I have Malwarebytes app version 1.4.0 with ad blocker version 1.0.2019050909 and my iphone is running ios 12.3. Problem is no matter what website I go to that has ads none of them are being blocked. I have adblock turned on, tried deleting and reinstalling the app and yes I know the ad blocker definitions are updated. It's been like this the whole time since version 1.0.2019050909 been released but been hoping someone at malwarebytes would have noticed something so obvious by now. I attached just one example of a website with ads not being blocked but it does it on all sites that have ads
  5. yes i know malwarebytes owns adwcleaner now but about a week or 2 ago the download link on malwarebytes adwcleaner took me to toolslib website to download it and now it looks like adwcleaner downloads directly from malwarebytes. Just wondering why for the change now after a year of them owning adwcleaner. Are they suspecting toolslib of being suspicious or something? I dont mind the change because im not a fan of going to a random website for downloads i prefer to stay on malwarebytes.
  6. About a week ago i downloaded adwcleaner on my computer and the malwarebytes website took me to toolslib and today i went to download it on a friends computer and its now downloading straight from malwarebytes website. Is adwcleaner now being hosted by malwarebytes instead of toolslib?
  7. Chrome does add multiple search engines when installed and will add them back after reseting chrome settings and sometimes even after chrome updates they come back. I use chrome and I don't remember ever seeing one for ask though. Try clicking the three dots beside each search engine you don't want and it should give an option to remove them. After doing this run adwcleaner and malwarebytes and see if it comes back.
  8. Good to know it's a FP thanks for letting me know ?
  9. https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/v117744069_ns_retail_en_us If you look where it says Norton safe search it mentions ask. I remember when they added this the norton forums was filled with complaints lol
  10. from what i read online norton uses ask in their toolbar or atleast used to anyway but does adwcleaner automaticly put it in quarantine or just deletes it?
  11. So I decided to run some virus/malware scans on my pc and malwarebytes and norton come out clean but when I ran malwarebytes adwcleaner downloaded from the official site it found 1 issue being a registry key and i'm not expert on this stuff but i do know deleting registry keys can cause lots of issues. From what i googled about the key some are saying its related to norton and the norton/ask toolbar thing since norton apparently partnered with them on the toolbar. So is this a false positive or is it safe to delete? I don't even use internet explorer im a chrome user Here is the log from adwcleaner # ------------------------------- # Malwarebytes AdwCleaner # ------------------------------- # Build: 07-04-2018 # Database: 2018-07-04.1 # Support: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support # # ------------------------------- # Mode: Scan # ------------------------------- # Start: 07-07-2018 # Duration: 00:00:06 # OS: Windows 8.1 # Scanned: 41365 # Detected: 1 ***** [ Services ] ***** No malicious services found. ***** [ Folders ] ***** No malicious folders found. ***** [ Files ] ***** No malicious files found. ***** [ DLL ] ***** No malicious DLLs found. ***** [ WMI ] ***** No malicious WMI found. ***** [ Shortcuts ] ***** No malicious shortcuts found. ***** [ Tasks ] ***** No malicious tasks found. ***** [ Registry ] ***** PUP.Optional.Legacy HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes\{AFBCB7E0-F91A-4951-9F31-58FEE57A25C4} ***** [ Chromium (and derivatives) ] ***** No malicious Chromium entries found. ***** [ Chromium URLs ] ***** No malicious Chromium URLs found. ***** [ Firefox (and derivatives) ] ***** No malicious Firefox entries found. ***** [ Firefox URLs ] ***** No malicious Firefox URLs found. ########## EOF - C:\AdwCleaner\Logs\AdwCleaner[S00].txt ##########
  12. So I was on a local new stations website and like most they have ads on their site. Without clicking on any of the ads google chrome got redirected to a random website but for some reason I don't think it got to load the website because chrome was asking if i wanted to reload the page almost like i was disconnected from the internet. I'm not sure if my Norton antivirus blocked it or chrome. The 2 websites it tried taking me to were mcafeesecurity.app-center.site and usa.india-abc.com/zredirect. But after that I closed chrome and right away scanned my pc with Norton (online and offline) malwarebytes (online and offline) and even a full scan with microsoft malicious software removal tool (online and offline) and i even ran all 3 programs in safe mode and everytime it came back clean. I have not noticed any strange activity like freezing/slowdowns/high cpu or data usage/errors or any settings being changed. After everything came back clean I decided to run Norton power eraser and first time it came back clean but I ran it a few hours later and Its showing something in my registry im not sure if its a false positive or not since Norton warns its possible with that tool. With all this said does it seem like im safe or should I try other options? This is what Norton Power Eraser is finding: I also attached 2 pics Registry Key: HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2495352770-3182042516-1834595302-1002\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3\"1803"
  13. I'm having a issue where Malwarebytes 3.0.6 hangs during rootkit scanning on the threat scan. I have tried turning off rootkit scanning in the settings before running threat scan and so far (yet anyway) has not caused issues during threat scan. I can scan for rootkits just fine during custom scan though. Strangely I tried this on a old computer with a fresh copy of windows 7 without anything but malwarebytes installed and it did the same thing. Unless malwarebytes team wants to blame this on a conflict with windows this proves its a bug with malwarebytes.
  14. Since the release of the new malwarebytes I been having issues with it reverting to 3.0. Everytime I restart my computer or lose internet connection it goes from 3.0.5 to 3.0 but if i go to add/remove programs list it still shows the 3.0.5 being installed although when opening the program it says 3.0. After this issues occurs it makes me redownload 3.0.5 (although already installed) and redownload definitions update. I have tried doing a complete uninstall and reinstall and that didn't help. Also I never changed any settings from default and I been using the free version not the trial. I have 3 computers in the house all with 3.0.5 and only the 2 windows 7 computers are having this issue, the windows 8.1 computer has so far had no issues with 3.0.5. The one computer is windows 7 64 bit the other is windows 7 32 bit both having issues with all the latest updates after complete uninstall and reinstall with default settings and free version.
  15. I have 3 questions about the new malwarebytes Do I need to be connected to the internet to run a scan with malwarebytes version 3.0.4? Is it better to scan with or without internet connection? Under custom scan If i put a check in the box next to each of the drives like c:, which is where my os is installed, does that mean it will scan my entire system?
  16. So i just tried this on my windows 8.1 computer and again on my windows 7 laptop and both have issues not scanning the entire system during custom scan with all the partitions selected with the lastest version and latest definitions. Anyone have any suggestions?
  17. So I updated to malwarebytes 3.0 and after install checked for updates till it said there was none. I went to run a custom scan and selected all the options like rootkits and memory objects and then selected all my partitions and at the end of the scan it showed only 190,625 files were scanned. There should be a lot more, malwarebytes 2.xx always found around 450,000 and so does my antivirus norton security. So I the decided to try threat scan instead of custom and it scans 364,560 files which is better but still not all my files. Is this normal or just a bug that version 3 is not scanning my whole system like 2.xx ?
  18. Currently im using MBAE and I keep auto update disabled due to issues with that in the past. I noticed theres a new version of MBAE and was wondering if anyone is having issues with the latest release before I update. I heard of a few people having issues with it not wanting to start with windows. Is anyone else having any difficulties with the latest release?
  19. I'll start by mentioning the antivirus i use is Norton Security Suite that has its own built in firewall and this antivirus comes free with my ISP comcast. I also use MBAM free. So yesterday I installed MBAE free without trial on my laptop. Everything worked fine after the install but when i restarted the computer and got to the desktop I noticed my antivirus and its firewall wasnt running until about 3 minutes later when everything started working again on its own. I know its not a virus/malware issue because i scan my computer weekly with MBAM and Norton in window mode and safe mode just to be sure. Also this didnt happen until i installed MBAE. Everything is working now and I havent noticed it happening again yet. If it helps my laptop is running windows 7 64 bit
