  1. Actually Malwarebytes and Windows Defender do not show up properly in the system log. Let me have you run the following for me. Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop. NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work. NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system. Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait. If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart. The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply. Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version. fixlist.txt Thanks
  2. You would need an External USB drive with enough free space to create and image of the current hard drive. Please see the following topic Backup Software AOMEI Backupper - Probably the best FREE version for the average home user Acronis True Image Probably the best PAID version for the average home user Macrium Reflect Free
  3. Well a Firewall issue is not the same as a Security Center issue. Open our MBST tool again. DO NOT click on the "Start Repair" Click on the left-side pane and select the Advanced tab. Then set the options as shown. Once all items are selected as shown then click the "Repair System" button and follow the on-screen instructions. After the reboot the Windows Firewall should now be enabled. Let me know how that goes
  4. I have been with the company since the beginning and we have never wanted to censor or monitor where you go or what you do with your computer. Our only concern it to try to block or prevent access to any site that poses an actual threat to your system if we're aware of said site.
  5. I don't see anything in the fix that should take all that long. It was asked to run an SFC check. That normally takes 10 to 20 minutes. Then a DISM check to repair corrupted store file if found that too takes about 10 to 20 minutes depending on the speed of the computer. Then a couple removals that are almost instant. Then delete temp files which if you had a lot of them could take up to an hour or more I suppose. Then a disk check on reboot. The disk check run for most people in under 20 minutes. If it still running I would click on Start and type in "Check for updates" and hit the Enter key and see if Windows Updates are trying to run or install. If that is happening at the same time it would make everything come to a crawl. If Windows Updates are not running and FRST is still running you can go ahead and reboot the computer and let me know. Quite late for me but I will check back on you in the morning. If Windows updates are running then DO NOT reboot. Rebooting in the middle of a Windows update could be disastrous. Thank you
  6. Okay, please look at doing a reinstall without losing files. https://www.intowindows.com/how-to-reinstall-windows-10-without-losing-data/
  7. If you have a site that is making say $100K a month. They decide that for whatever reason they don't like what you sell or talk about. They simply remove your site from their DNS list and BANG!! now all your traffic dies and your income dies. Google already has that power. Let's not add to the problem The point being that no DNS provider should be allowed to be in this type of control period. Censorship like that is far more common than you may think.
  8. I'm sorry but if you think they can't control what you can find then you may not understand what DNS is for. Yes, Google already has that power too but with dozens of other search engines you still have some alternative search. But even if Google lists it in their search list, if the DNS provider doesn't list it you will not find the link because it will not be able to find the server.
  9. Again WHY would you want any DNS provider to filter your data? Sorry but that just really baffles the mind. These are private companies that now control what you can find. As their moral judgements change over time you as the consumer are now left to be at their mercy as to whether or not you can find a specific website. The issue is that you have no choice either. By using an application that is designed to filter then you and only you get that blocked not all 7 billion people on the planet.
  10. I don't know but by you continuing to post and link Cleanbrowsing that is bordering on SPAM and SEO which is coming close to have the entire topic deleted. I'm sorry to mean to sound bad there but we get a ton of people that come to the site that try to promote stuff like this which is against forum policy.
  11. It offers a paid service, it offers filtered service. Just like OpenDNS and others.
  12. So is CleanBrowsing My preference is that ALL DNS providers should be mandated that they should not play in this area. All DNS providers should do what they're there for. To provide look up information and it should not be morally controlled by anyone. Domain Name System (DNS) is the phonebook of the Internet and should be able to find any known, published site period. There are dozens of applications to filter and monitor access to sites for those users that want or need filtering. DNS providers should not be allowed to be a censor period.
  13. The post I provided you in the beginning has the most up to date information. Some random user on the Internet is not going to have more up to date information. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/671473/stop-ransomware-stop-puma-djvu-promo-drume-help-support-topic/
