  1. Actually was able to confirm that page load times have slowed today. I've sent a note to the Development Team to let them know. Not sure what's causing it as it was not happening before.

  3. Please show us some screenshots of what you're seeing
  4. Yes, Adblock Plus works. Adblock does not appear to - at least not for me https://www.minterest.com/adblock-vs-adblock-plus/ https://help.getadblock.com/support/solutions/articles/6000087894-what-s-the-difference-between-adblock-and-adblock-plus-abp-
  5. I see the link is broken. Looks like it got merged with the video link. I'll fix it. https://www.minterest.com/adblock-vs-adblock-plus/ Thanks https://adblockplus.org/ Actually can't even get Adblock to install for IE https://getadblock.com/
  6. It is mentioned as part of the speech above about protecting your computer.
  7. Hello @woodeey1 I would highly recommend doing a clean up of Google Chrome. Actually I'd suggest not using Chrome but if you're going to then try cleaning it and let us know if that helps. I've tried both an old installation of Chrome as well as a fresh new install and both work quickly for me. Thanks Ron
  8. Hello @TimLawrence I do not see any obvious signs of an infection. A couple of more minor issues. Your Lenovo software is crashing. The following topics may potentially help you to resolve the issue if it continues.

You may want to remove any policies from Firefox FF HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox: Restriction <==== ATTENTION I would suggest cleaning up Google Chrome - please follow the directions from the following topic. Let me know how things are after that. Thanks Ron

  10. Hello @OzBoz We have a test build of the standalone MBAE that you can use. This should stop the blocking alert. You will need to disable the current Exploit protection module in Malwarebytes and then install and run this standalone Consumer version. NOTE: This is a test, beta build and should not be used long term. Once it has been fully tested it will be updated in the main Malwarebytes product as well. https://malwarebytes.box.com/s/hvlkhgbzltvkxwgydwufc8k0ng0t2n2k If you have any questions please let me know. Otherwise, I hope this corrects the issue you're reporting and I await your reply. Thank you again Ron
  11. Please follow the directions from the following topic and let us know if that corrects the issue or not. Thank you Ron
  12. Hello @comdude2 Please follow the directions from this article and post back your log so that we can review https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-2396 Thank you Ron
  13. Hello @MollyDarknet I'm not showing any blocks on either site. If you're seeing them can you please check for updates within Malwarebytes and let us know if that corrects the issue for you. Thank you Ron
  14. The idea is to improve Malwarebytes Browser Guard in this forum not use another blocker (I am a fan of uBlock Origin as well and I do use it) Can you please provide examples of said Ads? I only see 2 items that I'd consider Ads but they are Service oriented 1st level that I don't think we currently block. However, once I click on a video I am not getting any other Ads, Banners, etc as you describe. What operating system are you on? What version of Firefox are you using? What version of Malwarebytes Browser Guard are you using?
  15. I can understand that. These phones today are way out of control on the costs. Hopefully once full testing and coding has been completed for Android it fixes it for you as well
  16. No, no lock on my end. I can get to both sites without an issue. Google sync is just one small portion of that article. Cleaning up the junk that builds up in Google Chrome is also part of it. I'm not a big fan of Google Chrome so only use it when I have to but I've also cleaned a lot of junk build up from it after only a few days use. Personally I'd recommend using Firefox myself but I do know there are some sites that only support Chrome (various reasons for that but being forced to use one specific browser goes against the open nature of the Web) I would recommend using another browser if for nothing else, to test and verify if they too have the same issue.
  17. @malhunt As long as you're using something that's much better than nothing. Much of this is about choice and user preferences. There is no software that is the best for every user. There are well known and de facto standards such as uBlock Origin but there are many other similar products. From researching and personal use I have come to recommend uBlock Origin as a very useful tool at blocking Ads. I don't use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge except in very rare cases for very specific sites or specific testing. As such I normally don't use a blocker on those browsers on purpose.
  18. Removed first link to article on Seagate as it is no longer available on their site
  19. If you read and follow the advice below you'll be less in need of secondary antivirus protection, but since Windows Defender already comes free with Windows 10 then there is no reason not to use it alongside Malwarebytes, A major item often overlooked or ignored by so many users is good solid data Backups. If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. If you're still using Google Chrome I would highly suggest you consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though) Help Secure your browsers You may be interested in using our new Malwarebytes Browser Guard to help protect your browser from items that uBlock or others don't target.

  20. Sad that we live in an age that we can't seem to keep data like that secure. Those paper days weren't as bad as we thought maybe 😅 Thanks David
  21. Unfortunately there is nothing to fix from the forum software. If this was a feature of the forum software it would happen to all users which it does not. This has something to do with your browser or some other setting or hardware on your system. Please try restarting your computer or using another Web browser as mentioned by @exile360 Which browser are you currently using?
  22. @Alex450 The link you provided is SPAM and has been removed. To answer your question though. Thank you Ron
  23. Tamper Protection is part of Windows Defender and the original article I provided you from Microsoft explains what it is and what it does. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/windows-defender-antivirus/prevent-changes-to-security-settings-with-tamper-protection Overview During some kinds of cyber attacks, bad actors try to disable security features, such as anti-virus protection, on your machines. They do this to get easier access to your data, to install malware, or to otherwise exploit your data, identity, and devices. Tamper Protection helps prevent this from occurring. With Tamper Protection, malicious apps are prevented from taking actions like these: Disabling virus and threat protection Disabling real-time protection Turning off behavior monitoring Disabling antivirus (such as IOfficeAntivirus (IOAV)) Disabling cloud-delivered protection Removing security intelligence updates How it works Tamper Protection essentially locks Microsoft Defender and prevents your security settings from being changed through apps and methods like these: Configuring settings in Registry Editor on your Windows machine Changing settings through PowerShell cmdlets Editing or removing security settings through group policies and so on. Tamper Protection doesn't prevent you from viewing your security settings. And, Tamper Protection doesn't affect how third-party antivirus apps register with the Windows Security app. If your organization is using Windows 10 Enterprise E5, individual users can't change the Tamper Protection setting; this is managed by your security team.
  24. I've asked for a review of the site. Currently urlvoid with a re-scan shows no blocks Thanks Ron
  25. You can read more about it from this link https://www.malwarebytes.com/browserguard/ Thanks Ron
