  1. The computer is a Dell Vostro 410 from about 2007, with a Realtek High Definition Audio chip. Its Hardware ID is: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_10280278&REV_1000 Device Manager also lists a set of 4 other sound devices, all with the description "NVIDIA High Definition Audio", and all with the same Hardware ID: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10DE&DEV_0014&SUBSYS_10DE0101&REV_1001 I tried disabling the NVIDIA devices, but that didn't stop the MBARW interruptions.
  2. New Information: The title of this entire Topic should probably be: MBARW causes TuneAero Audio Interruption every 1:55 minutes. After our last posts, I began to question my assumptions about the USB ports being involved in this problem. I could not reliably reproduce the USB keyboard interruptions that I mentioned in Post #1, and believe that may have been caused by coincidental high CPU usage. The breakthrough came when I changed Step 3 in Post #7 to: 3) TuneAero Audio Output Device: "Speakers (Realtek HD Audio)" -which is the motherboard sound card (default system audio device) sp
  3. To hopefully clarify: Post #1 was a general summary of the problem with not many details. My Post #17 was intended to say that playing music through the VB-Audio-TuneBlade-TuneAero system to the USB audio device is interrupted by MBARW, while playing music *directly* to that same USB audio device is never interrupted by MBARW. So, I suspect that something in the VB-Audio-TuneBlade-TuneAero system is being affected by MBARW. And a new thought: Since that 2nd computer on the LAN that's receiving the music cast is never interrupted during those moments when MBARW affects the main computer
  4. Using JRiver to play directly to either the computer's motherboard sound card or to a USB audio device is not affected by the Ransomware module. The problem comes when playing audio to the VB-Audio Hi-Fi Cable (WASPI, DirectSound, or Kernel Streaming modes) virtual sound card. I have a clarification for my previous Post #7 above, in which Step 2) should be: TuneBlade Audio Capture, Audio Capture Mode - Specific Endpoint: "Hi-Fi Cable Output (VB-Audio Hi-Fi Cable) WASPI". That is the configuration that allows the computer to use its motherboard sound card to play all of the Wind
  5. Yes, the 14-day Trial license is now Activated. Unfortunately, the Malwarebytes Premium Ransomware Protection module causes that same USB audio interruption as before. Also, whenever I click the Ransomware Protection On/Off control to On, there is an immediate cutoff of the USB audio that lasts about 4 seconds. Switching that control to Off does not cause an interruption.
  6. I clicked on your provided link in Firefox, and it popped up a new web page which was blank except for the words: "Invalid request.". I also tried copy/pasting that https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb_check link into Internet Explorer and it responded with "HTTP 404 Not Found". And finally, the Edge browser's response to that link was "Invalid request."
  7. I went ahead and installed Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium v3.0.6.1469-10103 to give your suggestion a try. However, the Real-Time features were all deactivated and bore a "Premium Only" suffix -so no ability to test the Web, Exploit, Malware or Ransomware protections. How can I activate the 14-day trial features? Prior to attempting this test, I had been running the freeware versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM), Anti-Exploit (MBAE), and Anti-Ransomware (MBARW); which were all forced to uninstall by the Malwarebytes 3.0 Premium installer. The program that's running right now is titled
  8. I did some more testing and found that this audio interruption problem only occurs when my system is playing music through a particular chain of audio devices. If I play the audio directly to the Realtek WASPI sound device on the motherboard, then MBAR does not cause any problems. The audio device chain that is affected by MBAR is this: 1) JRiver Media Center plays music to the audio device: "Hi-Fi Cable Input (VB-Audio Hi-Fi Cable) WASPI". 2) TuneBlade Audio Capture Line-In Device: "Hi-Fi Cable Output (VB-Audio Hi-Fi Cable) WASPI". 3) TuneAero Audio Output Device: "Speakers (iFi
  9. Okay, the Logs Grabber files are attached. I also included copies of the MBAMService.log and MBARwind.arw files that the utility failed to grab, plus a copy of the Command window display for both runs of the Log Grabber -which I ran a 2nd time after it had trouble with MBAE and MBAR being enabled. Thanks for having a look. 2017-04-11-M64 (Command Window Display for both runs).txt 2017-04-11-M64 (1.with MBAE, MBAR running).zip 2017-04-11-M64 (2.after setting MBAE, MBAR to Stop Protection).zip 2017-04-11-M64 MBAMSERVICE.LOG 2017-04-11-M64 mbarwind.zip
  10. I use this Windows 10 computer to listen to music that plays out to a USB audio device. Whenever MBARW is enabled, the music gets interrupted for about 2-seconds approximately every 1 minute 55 seconds. That same music streams out to another computer over the LAN via AirPlay, and is never interrupted. In the same way, typing out characters on my USB keyboard also gets interrupted during those outages. Configuring MBARW to exclude some folders or even the entire C: drive has no effect on the problem. Is there any way to get MBARW to stop interrupting the USB communications? Thank
