  1. Just about all of the PCs I maintain show this MalwareBytes log entry from time to time Is it true that what this means is that Something attempted to Disable Chrome Updates but the MalwareBytes detected and deleted the effect of that Something? ( i.e a change to the Registry keys ) OR Is it true that Google Chrome Update mechanism itself is sometimes thought to be a PUP and that is being interferred with? I have been wondering this for a while. It seems to be harmless at most but I am not clear of the mechanism that causes these "Detection". Anyone have a definitive idea? I do, in general, want Google Chrome to maintain itself with the most recent version on the main line of Google Chrome versions.... Current was on the 70.XX.XX.XXX
  2. I would like to point out that while the issue of uninstalling MalwareBytes with a uninstaller is perhaps necessarily because of the way MalwareBytes works with mac OS .... it is easy to understand the user's frustration and mistake particularly since it seemed that English may not have been the users first language and the MalwareBytes uninstaller icon is a "Trash Can" and that iconography is a Apple UI clue to drag something to it ..... so I get the user misunderstanding..... Perhaps MalwareBytes, Inc. needs to reconsider that UI clue....
  3. The IP Address above beyonds to Hurricane Electric LLC - Fremont CA. This a a known good company so far as I know. I have known of them for at least 5 years. I used to use them for a IPv4 to IPv6 connector. If you are have issues with that IP address..... contact them.

  4. Below is the log file for a scan almost a month ago where a registry key of a PUP was found. I assume the PUP was present at least briefly but now a left over key is present ( only ? ). Is this normal? Should it be of concern? Should it be automatically removed by default? Where is the preference for that? ..... Contents of log file.......

  5. MBBR detected this app with the marker for it being less than trustworthy today about 40 minutes ago.. I would like to confirm that the very same computer was acting very odd Christmas day, though I cannot conclusively say it was caused by Open Any Files.app, I do have that installed and Iit may have opened a file a little earlier in the day. I assumed the instability was a Google Chrome extension at the time but it is possible that Open Any Files.app was the source of the issue.t I did reflexively think "North Korea hackers" at the time but could not pin it down. The behavior seemed to cause major hiccup in Chrome that I have never before experienced or at least not recently. I closed up an tabs that seems unusual and checked my extensions for Chrome and a scan with MBBR did not find anything. I did not think about being the source of my computer's odd behavior.
