  1. Never mind, I hunted down the installation program in the users/xxxx/AppData/Local/temp folder and it ran fine. I suspect MBAM Premium just doesn't/didn't like the behavior by which you initiate the process while the old version of VLC Media player is running, and you tell the update program to close the current version and do the update.
  2. Media Player Classic? VLC has been my go to because everything else I ever tried would require me to download codecs blah blah blah instead of playing things hassle free.
  3. Thanks for the link. I posted the same info as above where you indicated. We'll see what happens. It's not the first time MBAM Premium has blocked a VLC Media Player update.
  4. No, I've left all that as is, so it's not checked. I'll post what I posted above in the false positives forum, although it doesn't have to do with the web protection component as far as I can see.
  5. How the heck to edit an existing post of mine, anyway? Is that not a feature of this forum software?
  6. That's what my MBAM Premium gives as a version as well. I'll try again today and see what it says. OK, here it is: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Protection Event Date: 5/13/20 Protection Event Time: 6:14 PM Log File: 3be48e90-9580-11ea-86bb-704d7b294b36.json -Software Information- Version: Components Version: 1.0.896 Update Package Version: 1.0.23786 License: Premium -System Information- OS: Windows 10 (Build 18362.836) CPU: x64 File System: NTFS User: System -Exploit Details- File: 0 (No malicious items detected) Exploit: 1 Malware.Exploit.Agent.Generic, C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\vlc-3.0.10-win64.exe, Blocked, 0, 392684, 0.0.0 -Exploit Data- Affected Application: VLC Player Protection Layer: Application Behavior Protection Protection Technique: Exploit payload file blocked File Name: C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\vlc-3.0.10-win64.exe URL: (end)
  7. That's what my MBAM Premium gives as a version as well. I'll try again today and see what it says.
  8. This is surely a false positive, no? Windows 10 build 1909 fully updated, same for MBAM Premium as of today. VLC Media player 3.0.8 blocked from updating to 3.0.10
  9. Thanks. It's a bit hidden but it's there. Did it always used to be that buried?
  10. OK, it's a Threat Scan, but if I wanted to do a full scan on demand, where is the setting for it? I've combed through the settings. It seems like the only way is to schedule a scan and set the parameters, but right now I've turned scheduled scans off to troubleshoot an issue between MBAM Pro and Firefox.
  11. It just seems ridiculously fast for the number of files present on my machine with an SSD boot drive and four physical HDDs, a couple of which are divided into multiple logical volumes. How can I make sure it's checking everything? I don't see the option in the Settings.
  12. OK, so every time I do a manual scan during this experiment, I'll have to reboot the machine thereafter. Got it. I'll let you know if the problem recurs.
  13. So to make sure I understand: turn off scheduled scans, reboot the computer, then only run a manual scan with MBAM occasionally, followed by a machine reboot?
  14. Thanks, I should have figured the notification part out for myself. Alas, despite turning off web protection the problem just recurred yesterday: No tabs would load at all in Firefox until I rebooted. I checked for updates to MBAM before doing so, but there were none. I'm sorely tempted to unregister MBAM from the Security Center in Windows and turn off all real-time protection, turn Defender back on and just schedule a weekly scan with MBAM.
  15. How strange, I had those settings configured as you've indicated, but the program hadn't notified me. BTW, having turned the web protection off temporarily, is there any way to get MBAM not to pester me about it every time I start Firefox? I've gone ahead and done as you instructed. We'll see if the problem recurs. It's very intermittent in any case, and rebooting the computer always fixes it.
