  1. Posted for information. No problems so far. I did a clean install of Windows 10 20H2, version 19042.662 on one of my PCs and when I installed Kaspersky Total Security I noted that It is now in folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Total Security 21.2 (instead of 21.1), and the task bar ICON shows it as version which is apparently very new. When I tried to add drivers recommended as optional in https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038522974-Malwarebytes-for-Windows-antivirus-exclusions-list of October 5, 2020, Kaspersky would no longer
  2. Thanks Phxflyer. I had foxnews.com as my home page and when I turn that off and stay off of foxnews.com, no more warning popups.
  3. At about 3 pm PST today I got messages repeatedly while running Google Chrome cilkonlay.com blocked by malwarebytes. This was on 3 computers, one of which has not shared any files with the other two computers lately. I also got it on Edge Chromium browser. I suspect a false positive notification, possibly due to recent Malwarebytes data. Full scan on the laptop with Kaspersky Total Security found nothing and am now running full scan with Malwarebytes 4.2.1. My main PC is scanning with Malwarebytes and shows 42 detections so far. Advice would be appreciated
  4. Computer was turned on this morning at about 6:45 am, about 15 minutes later I tried to make MBAMPRO check for updates from Taskbar twice with no response and then tried to Open Malwarebytes from Taskbar, also without response. Tried to run Support Tool and got popup windows “Download list of clean files” and “Downloading FRST” which took at least 5 minutes to complete before the Support Tool interface opened, I selected “Advanced”, Gather Files and after about a minute the Support Tool interface turned off, without creating the mbst-grab-results zip folder. Google Chrome Browser now
  5. After a couple of months of only using Malwarebytes for occasional scans (with Kaspersky paused), yesterday I updated two PCs to the new CU 1.0.854, turned on Ransom Ware Protection and set both to start Malwarebytes with Windows to test the fix. So far so good - no problems. I will report any problems if they occur. Thanks for getting the fix released. Kaspersky Total Security (i).
  6. Maurice As requested, the two files are attached. In my original post I mentioned the following: Shortly after posting, I realized that while I was able to open "Update & Security", and it appeared to be checking for updates, it never completed checking for updates, with the spinning circle of dots continuing until I closed it down. I had been noticing that "hang at checking for updates" for a couple of weeks on that computer and just thought it was a Windows problem that I would troubleshoot when I wanted to do this month's updates. mbst-grab-results.zip CBS.zip
  7. I opened Windows Settings first thing this morning to set Windows Updates to delay updates for 7 days until I can see how this months updates do. Settings opened OK, then I tried to click on "Update & Security", but it did not respond. Closed Settings and tried to reopen Windows Settings but now Settings did not open. I then changed the Malwarebytes 4 setting so that it does not start with Windows, rebooted the computer and I was able to open Windows Settings and Update & Security with no problem. I then started Malwarebytes and tried again and could not open Windows Update &
  8. Malwarebytes has been causing Macrium Reflect Home vs. 7.2.4601 to hang/freeze when updating a cloned backup drive, when it starts "Creating Volume Snapshot". I then have to shut down Macrium in Task Manager to close it out, reboot and try again. For awhile I have just been exiting Malwarebytes before running Macrium, but I decided to try to add Macrium entries to the Malwarebytes Allow List. When Macrium was trying to run the clone, I found the following 4 files in Task Manager Apps and Background Services and added them to the Allow List: Program Files\Macrium\Common\ReflectMonitor
  9. Good news for a change. I rebooted the computer so that I could get Malwarebytes to open, then enabled Beta updates. First try to update from with Malwarebytes General Tab said up to date. Second try (still in Malwarebytes General tab) it installed the new update. Component is now 1.0.793 and Package 1.0.17533. I can now open Malwarebytes from Start Menu or Taskbar Icon, check for updates, close Malwarebytes, then repeat and it is working. I have tried it several times and will report if I see the problem with this new Component. Thanks
  10. Thanks for the suggestions. Trying to open Malwarebytes from the Start Menu also did not work. I will reboot the computer in a little while and then I should be able to open Malwarebytes to try the Beta Update suggestion. As to the suggestion about Kaspersky: I have used Kaspersky and Malwarebytes together for many years without problems until a few months ago. I recognize that the latest version of Kaspersky has caused problems for Malwarebytes, but Kaspersky has not caused problems with other programs. I have had to add Chrome, Word, Excel, Thunderbird and Firefox to the Allow List in
  11. This morning I did not try to update Malwarebytes manually upon initial startup two hours ago. At a couple of minutes after 8 am, I clicked on the Taskbar Icon and selected Open Malwarebytes to go to the General Tab to check for updates within Malwarebytes - but Malwarebytes did not open/is not visible. When I again clicked on the Taskbar Icon, I see the option "Hide Malwarebytes" so it thinks the program is running. This is the first time I have seen this problem where Malwarebytes would not open without me having first checked for updates. I wonder if Malwarebytes auto update occurred someti
  12. I did the above procedure. Mbamservice.exe + mbupdatr.exe are both in my Trusted Applications. Windows Security Center and Kaspersky are both complaining about turning off System Watcher but I will leave it off for now. You suggested not requesting an update from the Taskbar System Tray ICON. My normal procedure when I boot the computer for the first time in the morning is to update Malwarebytes and Kaspersky before going to the Internet, to be sure my protection is the latest. This morning's attempt to update the very first time is when I had the Malwarebytes update hang. What do you recomm
  13. Thanks for getting back to me. I updated my list to add MBAMInstallerService.exe to Kaspersky and C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Total Security 20.0\x64\kl_service.dll, plus C:\ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab\AVP20.0\Bases\Klsihk64.dll to Malwarebytes. I uninstall Kaspersky Secure Connection so I did not need that one. My previous lists were provided in post below. After adding the above, I shut down the computer and restarted, then opened Malwarebytes from the Task Bar Icon, then in Settings, under Application Updates, I clicked "check for updates". At that point it immediately went
  14. First start of the day I went to Malwarebytes 4 Tray Icon and selected "Check for updates" and it hung/froze with the "Installing update" window open and the blue half circle spinning for 20 minutes. I then shut down Malwarebytes. I clicked on Tray Icon and "Check for Updates" was grayed out/non-functional. I tried a series of reboots and checks for updates and am still having issues where when I close Malwarebytes and then later try to open it, it will not show on Desktop but is apparently running since the Icon options then show "Hide Malwarebytes" instead of "Open Malwarebytes". I prev
  15. Maurice I am sure that I am overdoing the threats and exclusions and allowed items, but it seems to work so far. Malwarebytes 4 starts Ok with Windows vs 1903 and is visible in the Task Bar. I am attaching two Word documents that show what I have excluded, etc. in Malwarebytes and Kaspersky Total Security 2020 (g). Kaspersky Total Security 2020 Trusted Applications and Exclusions for ASUS PC as of 23 December 2019.docx Malwarebytes 4 Allow List on ASUS PC as of 23 December 2019.docx
