  1. Thank you: That setting had been changed, not by me but by the well-known setting changer. I don't know how nor why it was changed, but the setting has now been reverted to the way I have always had it set.
  2. As I was doing other things, I got a Malwarebytes popup informing me that I needed to restart the computer to finish installing an update. I have seen that popup before, but always and only after having been notified of the availability of an update and accepting that. This normal sequence of events did not take place today; the only contact I had with the update was when I was told to restart. There was an update installed today, according to MWB Settings/About: Version 4.2.3.96, update Package Version 1.0.33104, Component Package Version 1.0.1112. If you have any unused notifications of the availability of this update, perhaps you could send one to me for my collection of whatever a collection of such things might be....
  3. I appreciate your continuing to watch this thread. Please define "it"....As I have had nothing to report, that is what I have not reported. Maybe that is an "it". Seriously, ytr.email has disappeared. I may never know what it was, where it came from, nor where it went.
  4. I wonder if Browser Guard's phishing license has expired? When I encountered the block earlier today, I chose only to go to the site, not to remove the block permanently. Since then, I have returned to dbstalk.com a few times with no block, and have tried to access the site with MS Edge and Google Chrome, where I have encountered no block. I did get the request to turn off the ad blocker in Chrome, but not in the other two browsers, even though I do have an ad blocker extension in Firefox (which I failed to mention is where I encountered the block, as it is my default broser.) If no further blocking, then the block today was just a minor impediment. although what a pediment has to do with any of this, that I do not know. (Just my usual playing with words. "Pediment" is a valid word, and putting an apparent prefix, `im' on it does not change one into the other.)
  5. https://www.dbstalk.com/community/index.php I installed Browser Guard yesterday, was faced with a phishing block on this site this morning. I only visit the DirecTV forums there, where I have never noticed any phishing attempts, so it is possible that this block is valid for other forums on the site. I bypassed the block, encountered no phishing messages on the two subforums that had a few new messages. Any information as to the validity of the block?
  6. Please explain "...normal balanced life"; I am not familiar with that concept.... I would click on the "Reports" if there were one, but I don't see any. I am sending you the log report; the PUP is an Amazon extension for Firefox, and is not malicious and in fact popped up a short while ago. MWB updated. It is not registered. I did see one block earlier today (at least I think it was today, perhaps yesterday.) AdwCleaner[S00].txt
  7. First name John is fine. Please permit me to tease you a little bit: You state that, as a volunteer, you are not on 24 x 7. I am not sympathetic: As a volunteer firefighter and volunteer fire chief, I was for many years *always* "on", as it were. I am not sure that my wife has ever quite understood why I left the house one Christmas morning to respond to an emergency, with a boy no more than six years old in the house enjoying his special day, but as volunteer fire chief I had no choice. mbst-grab-results.zip
  8. This is a copy of the message I posted in the general forum, which elicited a reply to post various files in this forum: "I am starting here, as I really don't know what this is about. Perhaps a false positive, perhaps a non-false, perhaps something else. "Starting several weeks ago, Malwarebytes starting blocking ytr.email. A search of my computer found that in Firefox.exe, but a search on-line found no relevant information. I did find that ytr.com itself is blocked by MWB, which may in fact be a correct blocking, but if not, then perhaps a post in the false positive module would be appropriate. "There was then a period of perhaps two weeks with no MWB blocking, and the computer search did not turn up anything, so I surmised that whatever ytr.email might be had gone away, only to have it reappear yesterday, but now in Thunderbird.exe rather than in Firefox.exe. Adding further to the curious nature of this, the computer search still does find any such entry. It has arisen once so far today. "Thus, I think you can understand why I started in this forum, given that I cannot find out what ytr.email on my computer is nor where it comes from, nor much of anything else. That led me to start here, to see if anyone knows about or can find anything about this oddity." This is in response to the above text.FRST.txt Three files uploaded, but one log file is a .json, not a permissible file type, so instructions for that requested. Not at all sure what has caused one link in wrong place, another expanded, but then not being sure is a specialty....

  9. Thanks, exile360 (of a total of how many?) Precisely the information I was seeking; I shall post the logs, etc., after this. FYI: 1. MWB runs a scan automatically every day, and I often see the popup result information, which is rarely other than 'nothing found'; ytr.email is among the things not found. 2. I forgot to state that there is nothing quaranteened by MWB.
  10. I am starting here, as I really don't know what this is about. Perhaps a false positive, perhaps a non-false, perhaps something else.

  11. I should have mentioned that when I had exited MWB and downloaded the file, it was placed in This PC/Downloads, as it should have been. As to "Gather Logs", given that I stacked well over a cord of firewood last week, I thought that I was done with that for at least a few months, depending upon when I need to start using the fireplace.... mbst-grab-results.zip
  12. I can assure you that I am not a "RiteredChief", whatever one of those might be. I don't see any relevance to the browser, as the problem existed with my usual Firefox, but also with MS Edge. ThisPC/Downloads is set for all downloads, but see my reply in this thread about my Malwarebyte test results.
  13. Exploit Protection was the culprit. File was downloaded, but not to the proper location. All other downloads always go to This PC/Downloads, but this file went to Users/John/AppData/Local/Temp.
  14. When Malwarebytes is running, attempts to download this file result in a zero-length being created in Users\John\Appdata\Temp. When I exited Malwarebytes, the file downloaded properly. Why? hxxps://keepass.info/plugins.html#webautotype
  15. As you refuse to read what I have posted, I am done here. This time, you ask me to check again, when I had already written "Curiously, I tried this on both computers today, and MWB did not block it on either one." I have checked a few more times, same result.
