  1. Clarification, please: At this MWB Forum FAQ url: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/191650-malwarebytes-3-frequently-asked-questions/#comment-1077438 ...pbust says, "Microsoft’s traditional antivirus Windows Defender is included by default and for free with Windows 8 and 10, and is a useful additional layer alongside Malwarebytes 3.0." I have MWB Premium, and it appears that on my Win10 PC, Malwarebytes Premium automatically turn off Windows Security's Virus and Threat Protection services. If I click on Windows Security's Virus and Threat Protection, it says Malware
  2. Windows support for Win7 is ending a a few weeks. Where are instructions on how to handle Malwarebytes Premium ver 4.0.3 beta during update to Windows 10? With millions of Win7 users about to face upgrading very soon, there should be an easily-found set of instructions on your support site, for MWB licensees to follow. Do I have to open Malwarebytes and deactivate my license key, before I upgrade to Win10? Does MWB advise doing a simple Win10 in-place upgrade, or a complete reformat/virgin installation of Win10? If I do an in-place upgrade, will Malwarebytes 4.0.3 beta still ru
  3. Horror stories suggest that the simple act of plugging a malware-infected flash drive into a PC, can instantly infect that PC. Am I correct in understanding that Malwarebytes will completely eliminate the possibility of that kind of infection...as soon as the thumb drive is inserted, will it detect the malware on the flash drive, block it from being transferred to the PC, and give the user the option to isolate, or completely remove it, from the flash drive? Alternatively, if Malwarebytes detects malware on the flash drive, which approach is safest: (1) have Malwarebytes remove the
  4. FINAL UPDATE: After 3 months, no further problems since using 'Delay Real-Time Protection'.
  5. It's been a week and so far MWB is behaving perfectly, using 'Delay Real-Time Protection'. Good sign!
  6. Many Thanks, LT: I set the delay to the default per your suggestion. Tme will tell if it works. If the issue reappears I'll update this thread, try a longer delay, see what happens, etc.
  7. Many Thanks - Attached are two log files, whose names depict the fact that one was generated at some point during the most recent sequence of repair attempts, while the other was generated just now, a day later, with Malwarebytes all repaired and functioning OK. I hope this helps.
  8. I rely on Malwarebytes, and In several years of constant use, MWB has always protected my PC from malware incursions - I have had no problems, and I like to think it's an excellent anti-malware utility. However, every few months, upon startup, Malwarebytes 3.7.1 reports that Realtime Protection is mysteriously Turned Off. This immediately makes me worry if the program has somehow been hacked, and evil forces have disabled realtime protection on purpose. Each time, I re-download and re-run the MB Support Tool. Sometimes it runs, restarts my PC, reappears, and progress animations sho
  9. The support tool does work, but not without some caveats, from my experience. This morning, after I booted my Win7 PC, my CPU jumped to 100% and my computer froze up solid, requiring a reboot. After the second reboot, Malwarebytes Premium 3.6.1 produced an alarming popup warning that malware protection was OFF. This is the second time in two months that Malwarebytes' malware protection button became mysteriously turned off upon morning bootup, and THAT CONCERNS ME. I opened Malwarebytes, entered my security password, and sure enough, the malwarebytes protection button was OFF,
  10. Just wondering when you guesstimate that we might see Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware incorporated into Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home Premium - how about posting an update?
  11. I see that after I reboot, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit does not start until I manually launch it. Why does it not automatically start upon every boot-up? I don't see any settings to force it to auto-run on boot-up. What procedure does Malwarebytes recommend?
