  1. Yep, that worked well. Everything appears to be back to normal
  2. Hi! Today, I turned on my phone and it repeatedly (2 or 3 times said "unfortunately, malwarebytes anti-malware has stopped). It was in the middle of me playing Madden Mobile. This has never happened to me before. I uninstalled MBAM Mobile, turned my phone off, turned it back on and reinstalled it. Same result, even when I wasn't playing any games. Madden Mobile is the only game on my phone is a Motorola Moto E. I've temporarily switched to ESET until the problem is resolved. I'll update this thread if the problem goes away. Thanks, Michael
  3. Hi JoelS. To add to what GeoNez said, this article from Malwarebytes Labs might answer why the pop-up happened and how to avoid it. https://blog.malwarebytes.com/cybercrime/2016/10/mobile-menace-monday-youve-been-infected-or-have-you/
  4. Joyeux Noël à tout le monde à Malwarebytes! (Merry Christmas to everyone at Malwarebytes!) Hopefully I used the right French words; I used WordReference for help.
  5. Oh OK Thank you @nukecad. I use uBlock Origin as my adblocker, so that advertisement you mentioned was probably blocked, right?
  6. @CliffS, that is one fantastic wallpaper you have there!
  7. When I updated CCleaner earlier, I updated it using https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard . Also, is Filehippo considered a safe website? I don't download software from it, or any other third-party sites, but I just want to make sure that it's safe because it has had mixed reviews from people. One of VirusTotal's scanning engines says "Malware site" but the other 67 say "clean." Is that a false positive on the part of that one scanning engine?
  8. Hi all, I have a question about CCleaner updates. When I went to update CCleaner today, I was on https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download, but when I clicked "download" it took me to filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ instead of https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard. About 5 minutes later, I went back to https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download, clicked download again and was taken to the right place, mentioned above. Is there something malicious about the two websites, or is it because I tried to update CCleaner from its interface instead of going directly to www.piriform.com and going to the "download" section? When I originally downloaded CCleaner, I downloaded it from https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard . https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/d35b47a62f474f1b0892d98ef4b1d4f13550b5733ec67c21a566ec86e36f5bfe/analysis/ <-- Filehippo https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/0ea925777abe7e9fd3d2992031afe1807e9bd7984c1cc0f249f76a1ca1d254ce/analysis/ <--Piriform Thanks, Michael Happy Holidays, Everyone!
  9. Is this PC more at risk to malware threats if these errors are not fixed, or will it just interfere with the performance of the PC? Other than the on-and-off loud noise from the cooling fan, this PC runs normally. Please let me know if there's anything else that needs to be done after looking at the updated logs. If not, you can close this topic and I'll move on to the General PC help section when I have the chance to do so, as this will be my last post here. I will delete FRST and its logs after posting this. I'll PM you if I have any other questions. Again, thank you for your help @AdvancedSetup Regards, Michael P.S. I apologize for dragging this topic out 5 posts after I said that it would be my last post here
  10. I have re-run FRST and the updated logs are here. This probably won't make much of a difference, though. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  11. Last question: if these errors go unfixed, will these errors pose a serious threat to the laptop, or will it just interfere with the performance of the laptop? Regards, Michael P.S. I apologize for using 3 separate posts when I could have used just one for the last three posts in this topic. Again, thank you very much for helping me.
  12. You also help in the "General Windows PC Help" section of the forum, right?
  13. OK Thanks for taking the time to respond to me. This topic can be closed now. I'll try to deal with these issues as soon as I am able to do so. Since it is NOT malware that is the cause, I feel a little better now. Regards, Michael
  14. Also, if I don't fix these errors, does it put the laptop at risk? I'll try to fix these errors in accordance with the Farbar logs after you respond to this. Again, thank you for your help @AdvancedSetup.
