    Very strange.  I was blocked last night on both Chrome and Firefox.

    I went to sleep. 

    Today I am not being blocked on Chrome.  I didn't change anything.  Something happened overnight.

    Today I am still being blocked on Firefox.  I cleared my cache in Firefox.  Now I am not being blocked.

    What could be causing this?  Why would it be working fine for a week and then all of a sudden be blocking that site?


  2. Another update.  Well... I don't have any idea what is going on, but I've been running now for about a month with web protection turned on and have had no freezing or buzzing issues.  I am on the latest version of MB.  I have also keep my other software up to date since then.  No idea what was the original cause of the problem, but at least for now it seems to have resolved itself.  

    Thanks to everyone that helped on this issue.

    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.


  4. 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".



  5. 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?


  6. 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.
