  1. Thanks for that - but, if it is turned off by default, why was it 'on'? I did not change or set it to 'on'.
  2. Do you mind giving a fuller explanation of what turning off "block penetration testing attacks" actually does? Thank you. I am able to load the sheet if I turn Exploit protection 'off' for the application 'MS Excel' , and I think it also works with protection on for Excel and the block penetration testing attacks 'off'/restored defaults.
  3. (And, sorry to keep posting replies, but can't edit/add to post) --- And, not only does MBAM block loading of the .xlsm file, IT SHUTS DOWN EXCEL ALTOGETHER so that ALL the open workbooks in other windows are TERMINATED without saving work!!!! Wow!
  4. (And, by the way, the 'Add a previously detected exploit to your Allow List does not work as there are "No exploits detected")
  5. Have a number of Excel sheets that I made with VBA macros and never had an issue until this morning. MBAM V 4.2.1 prevents loading the file at all! Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 10/23/20 Protection Event Time: 6:26 AM -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.1070 Update Package Version: 1.0.31876 License: Premium -Exploit Details- File: 0 (No malicious items detected) Exploit: 1 Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic, , Blocked, 0, 392684, 0.0.0, , -Exploit Data- Affected Appli
  6. Thanks - well, Brave already came out with a further update which didn't trigger a warning & I've deleted the file in question.

  8. How to supply the file? It is quarantined.
  9. The update to the 64-bit developer version of Brave browser quarantined by MBAM this AM - Installer/setup.exe ( v - Malware.Heuristic.106
  10. Thanking both of you for the replies - I did see that you can export reports, it's just cumbersome, lot of steps, when in what I consider a Windows environment, text items should be able to be selected/copied. Things that I may want to copy/paste include any screen that has an IP address related to detection or block (so I can use tools like abuseipdb.com to get more info - cause I never expect MB to add such option to the spartan and difficult ui) How about the LICENSE KEY in the Account Details? I can't copy/paste that? And, yes, there are times I would want to do that. The E
  11. Seems like entirely graphical interface - looks "blurry" doesn't act like a standard windows application with regard AND NOT A SINGLE DAMN THING IN THE ENTIRE APP CAN BE COPIED/PASTED as text! What a crappy idea, I can't believe I'm the only one who thinks the truly sucks. For example, suppose I look at the Scan report - presented with a fixed-size window, maybe I want to look at the log file named with about 30 seeming random letters, numbers and dashes - NO WAY to copy that text! I have a huge screen, but can't change the size of the report in any way and have to scroll. The interface
  12. This is the issue: I've told everyone that I had use MB to always look at the System Tray for the 'M' bat icon and make sure there is nothing but the solid blue color. Because if real-time protection isn't on, it changes. I guess I never was using/recommending MB when it was free, and until recently I don't think MB did this silent reversion to Free version. So, while you can have Premium and get a warning that you don't have real-time protection, apparently you can't count on getting the warning as MB can decide to deactivate your Premium without any notice whatsoever, and the
  13. (I would add that on this machine where the software is totally gone, I have an 'instlrupdate' folder in the Malwarebytes Tree that has an mb3-setup----3.8.3... executeable sitting there, and it is impossible to delete even with administrator rights. This file has a date stamp of July 18, 2019, and I would guess that's when MB got uninstalled - probably as MB decided it should update itself (unattended?) and probably ran into some issue. This is unacceptable. But par for the course with MB.
  14. I have a machine (that is primarily unattended) that has had the same damn thing happen on more than 1 occasion. Utterly ridiculous. Completely disappeared from Desktop, System Tray, and Add/Remove Programs (Windows 7). I AM ROYALLY UPSET with this. This is totally unacceptable, and 1 of the reasons why I will not continue to recommend MB. Support is pretty worthless/useless at MB.
  15. Still think this behavior is insane and potential legal liability for MB........... Beyond insanity to take up resources (and sending telemetry to MB?) for free version when it is just as convenient to put an icon on desktop to start up the software. I know how to make it not start with Windows and how to stop it when it's in the tray - but most of the people I'm dealing with do not.
