  1. You're welcome Additionally, if you haven't done so already, I'd highly recommend signing up for an account at My.Malwarebytes.com where you'll be able to log in and monitor as well as deactivate your licenses/devices as well as look up your license info if you ever lost it. Details on doing so may be found in this support article. Be sure to use the same email you used when you purchased your license for Malwarebytes if possible, otherwise refer to the information in this support article as well as this support article on manually adding your license key to your account as well as changing the email address associated with your account.
  2. Greetings, It shouldn't, however I would actually recommend going ahead and deactivating the software first prior to cloning just to ensure there are no problems, then you can reactivate the software once you're done and loaded onto your new drive. Instructions on deactivating can be found in this support article. Please let us know if you run into any problems or if there is anything else we might help with. Thanks
  3. Wow, that's great news, I'm glad to hear that it's already resolved ! Yes, I noticed the other failures as well; in fact that was the main reason I wanted you to get it checked for malware, because aside from those errors and the issue you were having with Malwarebytes, I couldn't see any other abnormality like we usually see in cases where Malwarebytes fails to connect (especially since you could still connect to the web via your browsers etc.). Not long ago, I was having problems with my own system. I thought I was going to have to reinstall Windows, however I downloaded their manual update installer which forced the system to update to the latest version of Windows 10 and after installing and restarting the machine everything was working great, just like a fresh install of Windows. Anyway, I am glad that kevinf80 was able to find and fix the issue, and if there is anything else we can help with please let us know. Thanks
  4. I don't believe MBG is capable of blocking individual/specific videos/content on sites like YouTube and the like. They can block ads and trackers, but that's only because such content has a source other than the site being viewed. You might try submitting an abuse report to YouTube or any other content host where you see something you believe violates their TOU/public safety rules etc.
  5. It may also be worth a try to disable Web Protection then restart the system. Once the issue occurs and things slow down it might be too late for disabling Web Protection to have an effect. I'll ask the forum moderators to split our discussion into a separate thread so that you may both receive individual assistance.
  6. You're welcome. Hopefully they'll get you fixed up, but if they don't then they'll send you back here and we'll continue to try and fix the issue. I just want to make sure your system doesn't stay infected if the problem ends up being due to malware.
  7. Thanks, your logs are showing other applications having some network errors as well. I would like a malware removal specialist to take a closer look just to make sure this isn't the result of some infection, and if it isn't due to a threat they might end up resolving the issue anyway should they discover the cause while checking your system. To do so, please follow the instructions in this topic then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and a malware removal specialist will guide you in checking and cleaning your system of any threats.
  8. OK, so you're referring to the issue that occurs over time, more like a memory leak or I/O issue, not the issue where the system is slow from the start. Yes, please see if Ransomware Protection makes a difference and let us know. You also might try the latest beta if you haven't already. I don't know if it addresses your specific issue, but it does include a lot of fixes for protection so it's worth a try if you haven't yet. If you wish to do so, enable beta updates under the General tab in settings. You can access settings by clicking the small gear icon in the upper right of Malwarebytes. Once beta updates are enabled, go to the About tab which is also under settings, then click the blue Check for updates link and Malwarebytes will download and install the latest beta. Restart the system and test to see if the issues are resolved. If you perform any of the above testing, please let us know how it goes and if any issues still remain or not. Thanks
  9. Have you tried re-enabling Web Protection since the update? That issue should have been fixed in one of the recent updates I believe, though the Ransomware Protection issue is still impacting users so you may still need to keep it disabled. I'd also recommend installing the latest beta if you haven't already. To do so, enable beta updates under the General tab in settings which is accessible by clicking the small gear icon. Once that is done, navigate to the About tab and click the Check for updates link located there and allow Malwarebytes to install any updates then restart the system and test to see if any problems remain. If they do, first try disabling Ransomware Protection and see if the issue is resolved. Please let us know how it goes. Thanks
  10. Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit Double-click to run it. When the tool opens, click Yes to disclaimer. Press the Scan button. It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply. The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a checkmark here. Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well. Thanks
  11. Yeah, you're not kidding. Things got better for a while around Windows 7/8 when MS started cracking down on the OEM's for preinstalling so much junk, but they've since started up with it again.
  12. I'd do this anyway, just in case since you never know if a system is infected, or worse, if a previous owner installed hidden spyware on the system in the hopes of stealing financial info or anything else of value from whoever ends up buying it. The second scenario certainly isn't the most likely, but either way, it's best to start with a known clean install of Windows just for peace of mind.
  13. If you wish to reset your HOSTS file to its default state, instructions on doing so may be found in this Microsoft support article. I hope this helps, and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know. Thanks
  14. If fast startup is enabled that could be the reason for the issue since shutting down the system actually puts the system into a hybrid sleep state rather than actually shutting down. You can check to see if fast startup is enabled (it is by default in Windows 10) and then disable it as detailed here and here, then restart your system. If that did not resolve the issue and the prompts are to install a new version of Malwarebytes (and not a prompt to restart to remove detected threats), then the following should correct the issue: Download and run the Malwarebytes Support ToolAccept the EULA and click Advanced tab on the left (not Start Repair)Click the Clean button, and allow it to restart your system and then reinstall Malwarebytes, either by allowing the tool to do so when it offers to on restart, or by downloading and installing the latest version from here Once that is done, open Malwarebytes and go to settings by clicking the small gear icon in the upper right, then select the About tab and click the Check for updates link and install any available updates, restarting your system if prompted. Please let us know if the issue is resolved or not. Thanks
  15. Excellent, the problem should be fixed now, but please let us know if you run into any problems. Thanks
  16. Greetings, Please open Malwarebytes and go to settings by clicking the small gear icon in the upper right and under the General tab enable the option to allow beta updates, then select the About tab and click the Check for updates link located there. Malwarebytes will download a new build and install it. Once it is done, restart your system and there should be no more crashes. Please let us know if that fixed the issue or not. Thanks
  17. Well that's good, maybe it was just a corrupt Chrome installation. PhysX is optional and most games don't use it (and if they do, they'll install it anyway) and as for nView, if you don't have a multi-monitor setup, you don't need it. Install the HD Audio Driver.
  18. If you don't use it, sure, there's no need to install it (I always use the custom install option myself and don't install the optional stuff I don't use). I guess DDU isn't working with XP these days. Oh well, hopefully the issue will be fixed by one of the other suggestions. By the way, did you ever try toggling the hardware acceleration setting and restarting the browser to see if it makes any difference?
  19. Greetings, Malwarebytes' Developers are aware of this issue and are continuing to research it in order to get it resolved. Once it has been fixed, a member of the staff will respond to threads of affected users to notify them, so please keep an eye on your email for a notification from the forums.

  22. Getting an Intel based system would be better for Windows/Wine compatibility most likely though, so if that's a factor it would be best not to wait, especially if planning to run Windows natively on the machine via dual booting through Bootcamp or whatever is used for that purpose on modern Macs these days. Of course once they do switch to ARM, the Intel models will probably drop in price significantly too.
