  1. A couple more...
  2. Thanks... working fine now. Bill
  3. The update went smoothly. No Windows restart on my machine.
  4. I too have recently had pop-ups for both MBG and the VPN. Why can't MB just stop these now for paid subscribers at least. I know they have said they will add an option, but this is getting kind of tiresome.
  5. I had to permanently turn off the ads/trackers setting because of all the valid sites that were having problems. Still using the other protections although I still see too many sites being blocked, in my opinion. I wish they would block sites based on actual problems rather than globally blocking TLD's which are often valid. I am getting tired of having to whitelist them or asking MB to whitelist them.
  6. I've been using MB with Norton Security for over 10 years with no problems. I'm currently using Norton 360 and have all MB and Norton security options activated without any problems.
  7. @John L. Galt Thanks for the clarification. Bill
  8. @David H. Lipman I didn't test, but I'm not sure. I did find the Mark Forum Read link. I thought Mark Site Read would mark all forums on the site as read, but I don't want to do that as a test. Bill
  9. I'm sorry if I missed this somewhere. I see a "Mark Site Read" link, but I don't see "Mark Forum Read". Am I just missing it somewhere? Thanks, Bill Edit: Never mind... I see it. I must be going blind. 🙂
  10. I went to the site anyway and tried to download the program and got this. Another false positive?
  11. Yes, I do have that turned on. I also have user access turned on for shutting down MB or any protections. I'm sure that is good enough. Just curious on the Microsoft change. Bill
  12. I think we have a disconnect here somewhere. The article is about Microsoft making a change so that malware can no longer disable third party anti-malware programs by making a change in the registry. I was hoping this meant that Malwarebytes could no longer be turned off by malware in that fashion. I was just concerned that maybe by not registering in Security Center this might cause some kind of problem. From reading the article, I didn't think it would, but was just checking to make sure. Bill
  13. I should have specified that I have Norton 360 installed so Defender is already off. I run Malwarebytes in addition to Defender. Based on other posts I've read, I turned off the settings to register in Security Center. I was really just wondering if what Bleeping Computer says will apply to Malwarebytes if we do have Register in Security Center turned off. Thanks Bill
  14. According to this from Bleeping Computer, malware can no longer disable third-party security software via the registry. Will this apply to Malwarebytes if I have the option set to not register Malwarebytes in the Windows Security Center? https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/malware-can-no-longer-disable-microsoft-defender-via-the-registry/ Thanks, Bill
  15. I could probably live with the web sites not displaying properly, but the problem on Ancestry.com is a much bigger issue for me. Genealogy is my passion and I spend hours every day working on it. The cut and paste problem makes Firefox a non-starter for me. Cut and paste works just fine in Chrome, Edge, Edge Chromium, IE, and Brave. I've tried other browsers, but haven't found any I really like other than Chrome and Edge Chromium. I use Ublock Origin, Ghostery, Malwarebytes Brower Guard, and HTTPS Everywhere along with Norton and Malwarebytes Premium. I try to turn off everything
  16. I do not mind Chrome. Firefox has too many problems for my taste. Cut and paste doesn't work properly on Ancestry.com. I've reported it to Firefox developers, but nothing has been done to fix it. I also find too many web sites that don't display properly. In any case, I don't mind that I have to use an extension to prevent this behavior so haven't reported it to Chrome. I find they don't respond to requests for changes very well. Bill
  17. There is an add on for Chrome called "Don't add custom search engines" which works most of the time. A few get through and I delete those. Bill
