  1. @mbam_mtbr

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the app on my tablet.  It is faster than last night when I reported the problem, but still pretty slow.

    On my phone I scanned 405 apps and 2536 files in 41 seconds.

    On my tablet I scanned 314 apps and 16141 files in 9 minutes 30 seconds.

    The scan of the tablet used to take about 4 minutes.  It is the scanning of the apps that is taking so long not the scanning of the files.  It scans about 30 - 35 apps a minute.


  2. I have a question on this.  I have not changed any battery settings and MB scanned pretty quickly before and now it is very slow.  Doesn't this indicate  that it would be MB rather than the battery settings?

    In any case, on my tablet I am running Android 9.  The settings don't look anything like what you show.  Probably changed by Samsung.  In any case, I have adaptive battery turned off which is the setting  to "limit battery usage for apps that you don't use often".  Is that the right setting?  I also have Optimize Settings turned off.  This is to "Save battery by optimizing your settings when you're not using your tablet".



  3. I'm finding the latest version to be very slow in scanning.  I'm using it on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 tablet.  With the previous release a full scan would take maybe 7 - 10 minutes.  With the new release, after 10 minutes it had only scanned 17 apps.  I am using the free version, not the paid for version.

    I've tried this several times and get the same result.  Any idea what the problem might be?


  4. I'll hold out then for a fix.  MB really needs to come up with a solution for this.  I have no other software that causes you to lose all the settings when uninstalling and reinstalling.  They could at least find a way to save the scheduled scan and allow list settings.  I am really tired of having to re-enter those every time.


  5. I went ahead and went to the site and downloaded the file.  I did a scan with Norton 360 and another with Malwarebytes on the downloaded file and both show no threats.

    I have been using VeraCrypt (and TrueCrypt before it) for many years.  This is the site they use to download their program.  

    Why all of a sudden are you blocking them?


  6. I hadn't seen this as I currently have web protection off due to the temporary intermittent freezing problem I'm having.  It has been 8 days since I turned if off and haven't had a freeze.  

    What isn't needed?


  7. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, I wasn't sure where to put it.

    I just did a Virus Total on the latest Crystal Disk Info program download and got this:



    Scanning with both Malwaebytes Premium and Norton 360 did not detect anything.

    Does anyone use Crystal Disk Info?  The fact that SecureAge APEX is the only one to flag it as malicious makes me think it is probably safe.  

    Anyone shed any light on this for me?
