  1. I've installed the latest version of digiKam (version 7.2.0 from digikam.org). The download suggested this site which was blocked by Malwarebytes: https://mirror.math.princeton.edu/pub/kde/ftp/ I tried an alternate site and that worked. Now when I start the program it wants to download some additional files from the Princeton site and Malwarebytes is blocking the download. Is this a false positive?
  2. I also have an SSD though my PDF documents are on a conventional disk. I just tried this again and noticed that I am no longer having the problem and I definitely was earlier; I tried with several PDF documents. I also notice that when I filed the first post I was on update 1.0.25272; now MBAM is on update 1.0.25284. Is it possible an update fixed the problem? Rob
  3. Running MBAM Premium, update 1.0.25272, component package 1.0.931 on Windows 10-64 1909. I don't know when this might have started but today I noticed that opening a PDF document with Adobe Reader is extremely slow (20-30 seconds). I opened a document and Sysinternals Process Explorer said mbamservice.exe was using 50% of the machine. I opened MBAM and stopped all of the real-time services and the PDF document opened immediately. I then turned them back on, one by one; enabling malware protection is what's causing the slow opening. Is anyone else seeing this?
  4. Browser Guard is blocking the download function at this site: https://www.ashampoo.com/en/usd/psr/0474/office-software/pdf-pro-2 Bypassed the block, downloaded the file, scanned with Windows Defender and MBAM and file is clean. Rob
  5. Ashampoo PDF Free is also blocked: https://cdn1.ashampoo.net/public/ashglob/0074/ashampoo_pdf_free_26507.exe Rob
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. Thanks; it appears to be already removed; website is accessible as of this morning.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. Porthos: Thanks but this did not solve the problem. The instlrupdate folder eventually gets recreated and the nags continue.
  15. 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
