  1. I think this has been fixed in the latest update to 4.0.4. I reinstalled 4.0.4, clicked on "Check for updates" and I haven't had any problems since.
  2. I couldn't agree more; I also have one lifetime license and I often kick myself for not buying two. Does Malwarebytes offer less protection (or functionality) when running as a "secondary" product alongside Defender as opposed to running it in place of Defender?
  3. Thanks; it appears to be already removed; website is accessible as of this morning.
  4. Porthos: Thank you for clearing this up for me. I just assumed (whoops!) that the green checkmark on the Defender icon meant it was active; when I checked further, I could see that it was not. I now have Malwarebytes set to not register itself with the Windows Security Center. And I am running the same Windows version and build as you. Rob
  5. Porthos: I'm a bit confused by this. I'm running the latest version of Malwarebytes Premium on the latest version of Windows 10 and I have Malwarebytes configured to register with the Windows Security Center. I don't see any evidence that Windows Defender is disabled. It's in my system tray with a green checkmark and the security dashboard shows everything green. Windows Defender still runs its scans. Both products looks like they're coexisting. What would I see to indicate Defender is disabled? Rob
  6. Malwarebytes is blocking www.zhornsoftware.co.uk, a website that provides free software. I've run on of their products, Stickies, for many years. If I try to access via Firefox, I get this error: Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG Through Chrome: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR Is this a soft (certificate) error or a real threat? The website has been blocked for at least a couple of weeks. Rob
  7. Exile: I will definitely install version 4 when this is settled; I was on version 4 when I suddenly started having the weird network and BSOD issues. I don't want to stay on version 3 forever but I'm kind of neurotic about BSODs. 😊 Rob
  8. Exile: Thank you; the tech note just indicates to turn off " Notify me when full version updates are available." Will disabling component updates disable downloads of any new malware signatures?
  9. Porthos: Thanks but this did not solve the problem. The instlrupdate folder eventually gets recreated and the nags continue.
  10. Porthos: It's not the hill I want to die on 🙂 but eventually Malwarebytes 3.8.3 downloaded the instlrupdate folder and started nagging me to update again so I repeated the process. Is this supposed to happen? Rob
  11. Porthous: Just FYI, the C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\instlrupdate folder is not present on my PC after installing 3.8.3 and MBAM is not issuing any notifications to upgrade. I do have "Notify me when full version updates are available" shut off. Rob
  12. Porthos: Thanks for the reply; the download link I found earlier in thread downloaded version 3.5.1. With all due respect, I'd rather not be a beta tester right now. If it was for testing things like functionality it would be one thing, but beta testing a fix for a problem that's causing BSODs is something I'd rather not do. Rob
  13. I've downloaded and installed the "legacy" (v3.5.1) version of Malwarebytes until this all gets sorted out. Malewarebytes 3.5.1 is telling me that "a new and improved version of Malwarebytes is available". Is this version 4 or is it a newer release of version 3? In Settings I have "notify me when full version updates are available" turned off so I'm not sure what this "new and improved version" is telling me. I downloaded the legacy version via this URL which appears earlier in this thread: https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3_legacy Rob
  14. My PC ran without issues for two days with MBAM shut off; I've restarted MBAM with Web Protection disabled.
