  1. I had blue screen crashes starting three months ago, right after the Creators update of Windows. Forum assistance made all sorts of recommendations, most of which I tried and which did not work. I took it into the shop and paid a fair piece of change to diagnose. As their first step, they uninstalled MBytes and never saw a repetition of the problem. On returning it home, I re-installed MB. Within a day I had a black screen crash (computer becomes unresponsive). On re-starting, Malwarebytes failed to boot properly (several times) and finally locked up. It kept complaining about not being able to verify licensing. I uninstalled and re-installed. A likely place to start would be for MB to check its licensing function. If the software attempts to verify that it is the licensed rather than the free edition, and the license computer says bollocks,it wouldn't be surprising if that caused an internal conflict causing real-time protection to shut off or maybe worse. MB needs to take this problem seriously. It's obviously affecting a lot of users and it's causing problems of the kind that can seriously damage computers.

  3. When trying to follow the link in the thread, I get the reply Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista Sorry, there is a problem The page you requested does not exist Error code: 2S100/6 Could you please update the link? Thank you!
  4. I followed your instructions and successfully ran PerfMon and Sysnative. When I got to the link for posting results from these, I get a message that the page does not exist. What PerfMon said was that a service had stopped ungracefully, resulting in a third of events not being logged in the event log.
  5. Ron, I have been very hesitant to rely on just Defender. So--forgive me-- I haven't done as suggested, hoping that somehow I could solve the problem in another way. I also did not have blue screen crashes from Dec. 7th until Dec. 13th. So, even if I had turned off everything except Defender, we would have gotten a false sense that the problem had been solved. Last night I had a BSOD listing Clock_watchdog Timeout as the cause. Following instructions on the WIndows Forum, I ran Driver Verifier. This turned up as a Driver Verifier Error MBAM Chameleon.sys. Could this be the problem? MBAM updates every day, so it should be current (it's 3.3.1). If we really can't resolve this otherwise, I'll wrap up my work for the year, and try running with just Defender. But if I have to do this, I really will have to be looking at alternatives for system protection.
  6. This does not seem very safe. But I will see what I can do.
  7. Ron, I tried the Components Update on Computer #1. I had two blue screen crashes thereafter. After the second, Malwarebytes and my antivirus suite did not come up. I had to restart again. Could this represent a conflict? I have Malwarebytes on a brief delay, since I have had some problems there before. I have not yet observed another crash of MBytes after startup, however. I scanned again using Sophos. This time, aside from tracking cookies, the only thing it came up with as suspicious was Farbar (FRST64.exe). Just to be thorough, I ran AdwCleaner. Nothing. Anything further from looking at the logs from Computer #2?
  8. Farbar logs for computer#2. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  9. AdwCleaner log from second computer attached AdwCleaner[C0].txt
  10. MBytes log from second computer (also suffering unexplained stoppages of Web Protection) attached. MBytes report#2-11-30-17.txt
  11. Finally, I should note that the same problem (Malwarebytes crashing) has now occurred on a second computer. When I am able, I will go through this sequence with that computer. Perhaps we will find something there.
  12. I have not previously done the Farbar, so thanks for this. Here are the requested files. Addition.txt FRST.txt
  13. Also, as mentioned above, I had run AdwCleaner. Nothing was found. But I repeated it. This is attached. AdwCleaner[C0].txt
  14. Please don't dismiss this as traces of an old piece of malware. There is a real problem with MalwareBytes crashing. The version is current and the machine is scanned daily, and the settings should detect PUPs. The most recent report is attached. MalwareBytes Report-11-30-17.txt
  15. For about a month, I have been getting messages that Malwarebytes web protection is turned off. When I try to turn it on, it will not turn on. The computer has to be restarted. I have also been getting Blue Screens of Death. I have scanned the computer with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Kaspersky, Windows Defender, and Sophos. Of these, only Sophos detected anything at all; a PUP called Softonic. First, Malwarebytes is, according to Malwarebytes, supposed to detect Softonic. So it's really disturbing to find that it isn't. Second, any suggestions as to what to do? Thanks.
