    That is not quite what I am experiencing. My PC doesn't stutter and the sound doesn't get worse over time.  For me when the problem occurs it just freezes my PC for 4 or 5 seconds and while this is happening the PC makes a buzzing sound out of the speakers.  Then it is fine until the next time it happens.  I've had it happen as many as 3 or 4 times in a day and then it can go for many days without a problem.  At first I thought it was related to streaming video from the web, but then it happened when I was watching a DVD and not streaming.


  2. I am not using the speakers in my monitors.  I use external speakers, so I could disable the Nvidia audio drivers.

    The thing I don't understand is why this would have anything to do with web protection in Malwarebytes being enabled or disabled.  

    Should I go ahead and disable these drivers and turn web protection back on and see what happens?  I don't want to interfere with whatever investigation @LiquidTension is doing.


  3. Now when I open and click on the settings cog wheel it is opening the settings to the Allow List tab without prompting me for my password.  Once there I am able to add items to the allow list without having to enter my password.

    For a security program this seems like a major bug and should be fixed asap.  At the very least About tab should be the default tab so that nothing of any importance is available prior to entering the password.


  4. Less than a day after turn web protection back on I have had two instances of everything freezing for about 3 or 4 seconds with a buzzing sound.  I was not streaming anything from the web.  I was watching a DVD on one screen and I opened a document in EditPad Lite on another screen.  It was when I opened the document in EditPad Lite that everything froze up.  It cleared itself up and everything continued as normal.

    Since I wasn't streaming at the time, I'm not sure if web protection is really involved, but I will turn it back off and see what happens.


  5. I went to the site https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update and got a block on ipv4.login.msa.akadns6.net which as far as I can tell is the logon for the site.



    I did a virus total and it isn't flagged anywhere.

    Here is the detection log.

    Yes, that was kind of my thought, but when I saw that someone else was having the same thing happen and they seemed to pin it down to Malwarebytes, I thought maybe it could have something to do with my issue as well.  In my searches on the web I haven't come across any other ideas for what might be causing it.  Freezing and a buzzing sound is exactly what is happening to me.

    Of course it could have nothing to do with MB.  I've been tearing my hair out for 3 or 4 weeks. 



    PC randomly freezing with a buzzing sound.  This usually lasts about 4 or 5 seconds and then my screens go blank and come back and then all is fine.  A few times I have had to reboot the machine.

    I have actually had this happen maybe 10 or 15 times over the last month or so and hadn't been able to pin down what was going on.  I can't find any problems with my hardware or software.  No malware or viruses.  For me it usually happens while streaming from Netflix or Xfinity.   Hadn't really thought it could be a Malwarebytes problem.  I am on, 1.0.810.

    Should I start up my own thread here on the forum?


    Edited:  Since this was split off another post, I have edited it to explain the problem I am seeing.

    I turned the computer off so that I could get cleaned up and dressed. that took about 30 minutes. when I turned the computer back on, I wanted to run a scan with Malwarebytes. I bring it up and find that Malwarebytes in already scanning the computer. It has gotten through to scanning files and has been scanning for 50 minutes. The question is: was the scan running while the computer was turned off?  Is that possible? 

    If the scan didn't run while the computer was off then why would it show that it had been scanning for 50 minutes after it was started back up.

  9. I have tried a couple other org.uk sites that I use and they are blocked as well.  If this TLD block was put in intentionally then we need the ability to whitelist an entire TLD as well.  It would be crazy to have to whitelist them a site at a time.  There are too many legitimate org.uk sites.  I'm hoping this was unintentional and it will be fixed soon.


  10. I'm still getting blocked also.  I am not running Bitdefender on my PC.

    Also those posts on the forum are from 2018 and 2019.  I just starting being blocked today.  It worked fine for me for years until today.
