  1. @rakka Your thought that something in the middle might be re-directing things made me think. I disabled all my Chrome extensions and then re-enabled them one by one. I found what I think is the culprit. It is called "Disable HTML5 Autoplay (Reloaded)". I removed this extension from Chrome. I then re-enabled the Malwarebytes extension and so far no attempts to go to dataprovider.biz have been blocked. I'll keep an eye on it for awhile to ensure that was the guilty extension. Thanks for the hint! Bill
  2. @rakka Thanks for the reply. I am creating the shortcut by dragging the lock icon in the address bar to the desktop. I don't see how anything could be "in the middle". Today it happened with a link in an email to the Toyota website. I'm beginning to wonder if my computer is infected somehow. I ran ADWcleaner and nothing is found with either program. My daily Malwarebytes threat scan didn't find anything. Also did a scan with Norton Security and it didn't find anything. I did a search and couldn't find anything in regards to dataprovider.biz being malware or any malware directing people to dataprovider.biz. Any ideas on how I might be able to figure out what is going on? Thanks Bill
  3. @rakeshsejwal I guess my real question is why am I getting this only when I use my desktop shortcuts to go to Malwarebytes forums. I don't get this for any other sites. It only happens if Chrome is not open already and clicking the desktop shortcut opens Chrome and takes me to the site. Why is Malwarebytes directing me to this site? Bll
  4. I have a couple shortcuts on my desktop for various Malwarebytes forums including this one. If I click on the shortcut to open Chrome to one of these forums, I immediately get a warning that dataprovider.biz is being blocked by the extension. This just started happening recently and it happens for all of my shortcuts to Malwarebytes forum. It doesn't happen for other shortcuts I have to other sites. What is dataprovider.biz and why is it getting blocked only on Malwarebytes forums?
  5. I downloaded the Dev version of the new Chromium based Edge browser and installed the Malware Extension for Chrome in that. msn.com/money worked fine in Edge while it doesn't work in Chrome using the same settings in the extension.
  6. @rakeshsejwal Don't know if this will help with debugging or not, but the msn.com/money page load just fine and shows all the images in the new Chromium version of Edge with the Malwarebytes extension installed and the ads/clickbait option enabled in settings. Why this would work in Edge but not in Google Chrome seems a bit odd since they are both based on Chromium. Thanks Bill
  7. Is there any chance of saving the whitelist and settings in a future release so that it won't be lost on a re-install? Thanks, Bill
  8. How long has 44 been available. I am still on 43. If I do uninstall and reinstall will I lose my whitelist?
  9. Yes, Google Contacts is now working fine with scam protection enabled. Earlier in this thread I had posted this question... By the way, how do I get version 1.0.44. When I go to the link provided in the pinned posting it takes me to the Chrome store which says I already have the extension installed. Would I need to uninstall my current version to install the new version? If so, would I lose all the sites I have added to my whitelist? That wouldn't be very friendly as I have 100's of sites added. Can anyone answer? Thanks! Bill
  10. The extension is preventing all images from showing on msn.com/money. If I disable ads/clickbait protection, then the images display. This is what it looks like with ads/clickbait enabled.
  11. Oops ... here are the screen shots. Scam protection disabled: Scam protection enabled:
  12. Here are images of what the contacts look like with scam protection disabled (images appear) and enabled (images missing). By the way, how do I get version 1.0.44. When I go to the link provided in the pinned posting it takes me to the Chrome store which says I already have the extension installed. Would I need to uninstall my current version to install the new version? If so, would I lose all the sites I have added to my whitelist? That wouldn't be very friendly as I have 100's of sites added.
  13. I am using Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit) of Google Chrome and version 1.0.43 of the browser extension. The web site for the contacts is https://contacts.google.com/.
