  5. Hi VirusPain,

    Welcome to the Malwarebytes Forum :)

    My name is Matt and I will be helping you with your malware issue. I apologize for the delay as we have been very busy lately.

    • Download OTL to your desktop.
    • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
    • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
    • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
      • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
      • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.

  6. Hi grog1961,

    So, there is no way to have it automatically check or tell you that

    definitions are available for download????

    I think there should be since they update so much each day.

    If you have the PRO version, you can set Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to automatically update definitions. There is also an option that will show a notification when Malwarebytes Anti-Malware automatically updates the definitions.

  7. Is there a way the Moderators can mark posts, resolved in this fashion, to notify other users of the PM resolution ?

    Yes and no. It would take some tweaking of the forum skin to add something like that, but it is technically possible. The actual thread title could be changed as well to indicate something like that.

  9. I have had your paid service for a year and a half. Having used several, yours is by far the very best, to me anyway. Keep up the great work.

    Thank you for the kind words! I am glad to hear that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has been able to help keep your computer secure.

  10. I'm not able to catch what you mean by "regardless of whether the location the file itself is in is contained in the Quick Scan or not". In any event you catch and remove it from memory, but how do you remove it from a folder that is excluded from the scan?

    The Quick scan is enough to find and remove any infections on the system, as the quick scan targets where malware it seen installing itself. The Full Scan, scans everywhere on the system, and is also used to scan removable devices to search for any malware that could be present there.

    While, I can see why you don't condone certain activities, flat out telling people you don't care if they are infected by something obtained from said method is certainly a bit bold and most likely would put a serious hurt on sales if you were market your product in that manner. I would expect your customers would expect your priority is to keep their computer safe from all malware no matter how it was obtained(I know I do). Obviously MBAM is only interested providing protection for how it thinks people should use a pc and thus fails to meet the needs for many user's in doing so. Certainly that is your choice, and thankfully user's like myself have other options. As well.. it's hard to recommend a product to other people that is lacking in basic functionality.

    Of course we care about how our users are infected, and that is why we are dedicated to helping create software to eradicate malware from systems, to keep our users safe. We are always striving to come up with the best ways to help remove the latest threats, and for that reason, we only concentrate on the malware that is a threat to our users, and that is why we do not go after what the antivirus vendors do. If we did, we would be able to spend less time on the really nasty malware that is currently out there today. We jump on the latest malware right away, and sometimes before any user has seen it in the wild. Therefore we protect our users from the latest threats, that most AVs will miss because they are tying to catch everything.

  11. Should have been more explicit !

    "Do not dwell on events that happened in the past, only concentrate on the present moment." ;)

    Thanks for posting, and please feel free to let me know of any similar posts on our Facebook page in the future.

  12. I didn't see a need to do that, in as much as someone from MBAM, commented within the same post, and must have seen it also.

    On the Facebook page? More than likely I did, and it was taken care of. I was referring to any post that I have not commented on already.

  13. as I get extremely "Pist" (sic) when I see comments on your own Facebook page of people who are doing it.

    If you see any such posts on our Facebook page, please let me know by sending me a PM with the information.

    Also if they post the illegal license key, I can go ahead and pass it on to get it blacklisted.

    Thanks :)
