  1. I dont mind those IPs being blocked since they are know for malicious actions, it's ok to block them, my bittorrent works fine anyway. The main problem is the intrusive notification that I am not interested in seeing; and as it is I cant select to block only those notifications, it's still all or nothing as it has always been with MB (why not expand on this feature with the 4th iteration in the MB series?). So, I dont know if you fully understand the issue here: I dont mind MB blocking those IPs, by all means block them out, but please allow me to disable notifications for these "pseudo" detections that aren't actually detecting anything other than a connection to an IP known for malicious actions. I mean say MB actually found something it thinks could be an ACTUAL trojan, or virus, or what have you... I'd like to be notified about that. You understand the difference? ACTUAL malware versus IP that has been know to do malicious actions. There's a pretty important distinction here. I'd like both to be blocked sure, and I'd like to be notified whenever MB thinks it has found ACTUAL malware. But please let me say no thank you to the spam notifications about connections to suspicious IPs. The Play mode would have been a good idea except that it blocks ALL notifications when said app is running, right? I dont want to block ALL notifications, I'd still like to be notified if there is ACTUAL malware found.
  2. But should I actually exclude the program from web protection? Im only interested in not having to have to click on that popup all the time. What I would really like is for MB to only protect against actual threats in the program, what it finds is not an actual malware (even though it says it is, it's kinda deceptive imo).
  3. yes it's when using torrent program, it says it found a trojan on an ip adress, but I know that there is no actual trojan, it's just the ip is suspicious because it has been used in malicious ways before etc etc. But not a threat to me in this context. So I dont want that notification popping up constantly when there is no threat. I wish there were a way to ONLY disable that notification, but I dont know how to.
  4. I dont see an option to disable notifications... please tell me this option is there somewhere?
  5. After choosing the restart option windows then restarted, it took quite a long time for the program to start. Like 4 minutes or so after logging into windows. Hoping this is one time thing due to the install. Program seems to work.
  6. so after installing MB4 I get these two popups... what do I choose and in what order? Do I choose first to say "No" to install new version? (because the new version had already been completed). And then "Yes" to restart system? This is pretty confusing, hoping for some help so I dont mess anything up. Thanks!
  7. What do you guys think; I dont want to upgrade only to find out that it's terrible.
  8. I only got those two in a row and haven't had any since I posted the thread. Malwarebytes was current for updates all the time. I wonder if it will even happen again?
  9. Got these two "blocked due to malware" in Malwarebytes right after each other. Upon inspecting the log in Malwarebytes it said outbound connection, an ip adresse and firefox.exe browser (I am using firefox to browse the internet). Is there any way to get more info about what caused this? Could it simply be from a site I was visiting? Maybe some content on website may have linked to those pages, like ad or something?
  10. well, getting a new password worked. The error message kinda threw me off in a wrong direction, it didnt indicate a problem with the password. But thanks, I logged in now!
  11. My end goal is to login to my account so I can review my license information.
  12. I have bought a licence years ago, it's a yearly recurring subscription. Yes I have access to the mail addressee I associated with the purchase, I have also lots of mails from mailwarebytes about my purchase when I search my mail for "malwarebytes"; order reference numbers etc. In support article it is mentioned I must "find the invitation email sent to you". I cannot find such a mail, but as I understand the context now that mail would have been sent back when I bought my license, years ago. Must have been lost or maybe it went in junk and I never saw it and of course not its gone. How do I get access to my account now?
  13. When I try to access my account on malwarebytes website, I want to check my license information, I get an error that my account is not "setup". I dont know what that means? It says I must check my mail for instructions. I dont know what mail this is, I dont see any mail from Malwarebytes and I have checked my junkmail too. Screenshot of the error attached. How do I get access to my account?
  14. Today Malwarebytes found that the file Payload.vsix, a visual studio file in one of the visual studio install folders is "adware". Im leaning towards this being a false positive? The file has been on my pc since november 2011, so not a new file at all. I attached file for you too research it. Also attached mb3 report file. payload.zip mb3Report.txt
  15. I see. Would be nice if those features were part of MB3 Premium at least, since you, I pay for Premium, while ADWCleaner is free...
  16. ok yeah I know that it blocks a lot of not malicious sites. I have that problem too. I think it stems from they way because they use a clasification that I am not sure how exactly is setup, but it means that many sites that are not malicious at all can be placed in a malicious classification list that means MB will block it. To be fair I would rather have MB err on the side of caution. What I think MB lacks is better tools for customization. When MB blocks a site it's not super easy to just add that site to the exception list, you have to go through some convoluted steps to achieve that. Additionally for example when torrenting MB may block a lot of IP's adresses. This means that it constantly pops up that notification about "Blocking website". This popup intrudes in all other applications, including full screen videos and fullscreen games. If you want to watch video or play games uninterrupted while torrenting you have no other choice than to COMPLETELY disable notifications. There are no ways to only disable specific notifications, it's either all or nothing. Of course still would like be notified about other treats, just not the ip blocking from my torrent program, but as it is now that is impossible. This is obviously just one example of major lack of customization. Which is huge oversight form the MB devs. And it's been like that for a loong time now.
  17. Note this is the MB3 scan report form BEFORE I ran 360 Total Secutiry and Adwcleaner. It's curious that MB3 found nothing while Adwcleaner did. I thought MB3 should be able to find anything that Adwcleaner finds?
  18. ok I found the logs from AdwCleaner. Attaching them to this post, so you can see what it found. These are things that were found after I had run both 360 Total Security AND Malwarebytes. I am using Malwarebytes 3.6.1 Premium. Im also attaching the scan report from MB3. mb3_reportScan.txt AdwCleaner[C00].txt AdwCleaner[S00].txt
  19. Im sorry I just looked through the Log of 360 Total Security and the latest dates are from 24. juli 2018, so whatever things it found now it didn't log it. What about the AdwCleaner, does that make a log of some kind I can give you? Because it did find some things also.
