    Flawless update to 3.6.1

    Just an FYI. Updated to Win 10 1803 build 17134.319 a few minutes ago. Then updated Malwarebytes Premium to 3.6.1. Rebooted several times and no errors noted. Checked Windows event viewer and no errors associated with Malwarebytes were noted. So for the moment, the update went smoothly and the program is running with no errors.

    ANSWERED New Motherboard

    I guess the real way to ask this question is Malwarebytes Pro activation based on your PC system or is it tied to your registry? If tied to the registry, when moving the entire physical drive to a new system nothing would need to be done. If system based, like Windows, then deactivation would be needed. I will deactivate anyway unless I hear otherwise but just curious how it works.

    ANSWERED New Motherboard

    Thanks. Good information. Just for the heck of it, I installed a spare SSD that had MY system on it to see how updating the new motherboard drivers would go. It went fine. I wasn't connected to the internet, but did open Malwarebytes to see what it would do. It opened fine and said my system was protected. A minute or two later, it gave me a red X saying I needed to update the definitions, etc. I didn't notice what the activation status was, but everything was green before the warning. So I guess if it worked for me it will probably be okay when I move her SSD sometime later this week. But I will deactivate it first. Thanks again.
  4. I am in the process of building a new PC for my wife. I will be moving her entire physical C drive, where Malwarebytes is installed, to the new build which of course will have a different motherboard. Will Malwarebytes see this as being installed on a new PC? Will it need to be re-registered? Or should I deactivate it beforehand? If so, what's the best way to do this? Thanks for any info about this.
  5. @dcollins I guess I'm anal, but I use the little tray icon on the right to open Malwarebytes main panel fairly often to view reports, check versions, etc. That extra line there showing a blocked website and asking if I want to add it as an exclusion is just another thing that could be accidently clicked and also dirties up the view. I just thought there ought to be an easy way to get rid of it if you don't want to exclude it. Not a big thing but it's like a tic that gets under your skin for me. I leave my PC on 24/7.
  6. Thanks. I'm not worried about how long it takes as long as it goes away on it's own. I never waited long enough to see. I just added it and then deleted it. But that didn't make any sense to me as to how it should or could work.
  7. There must be an easy answer to this, but right now it is not obvious to me. When I visit (seldom) a website that Malwarebytes blocks, I immediately get an option to add this site to my exclusions when I right click on the tray icon. But what if I don't want to add this as an exclusion. How do I get rid of that prompt? If I right click on the add exclusion prompt, it adds it right away. Then I have to go into exclusions and delete it. I'm sure there must be an easier way to just delete or ignore the prompt (just an added line in the pop up) without having to add it first???? Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

    No problem but just curious

    Duh.... thank you. I never realized that was clickable!
  9. This has probably been answered before but I'm just curious why when you view "reports" that they are not in any logical order; like by date?

    Documents and Folders Read-Only

    I believe someone posted the same problem on Norton's forum yesterday blaming NIS for changing their docs to read only also. Related????

    ANSWERED Site being listed as risky

    I imagine because it's the 4th and a big holiday, this problem isn't getting the attention it might any other day. I listed the crl.starfieldtech.com under exclusions but now see the ocsp. prefix is also causing the popups for me. I can only guess this is being caused by one of the definition updates this morning?????

    ANSWERED Site being listed as risky

    I'm having the same problem but I'm in the US and not using BT nor am I using Bitdefender and have never ever installed it. I've started a post in the MB3 support forum hoping it might get a wider viewer audience. I've noted the important factor to me is these popups JUST started this morning. For the time being, I've listed starfieldtech under exclusions to get rid of those numerous popups.

    ANSWERED Site being listed as risky

    I was just rereading the posts about this under Website blocking and another user reported same problem. The difference with me is I'm in the US using cox.net, not BT, and I'm not using Bitdefender nor ever had it installed. I've never visited starfieldtech's website before but just tried to see what it was about when I found it was blocked. My problem was with continuous popups from MB alerting me to a "risky" website while I was browsing. I've listed this under exclusions for the time being. The important thing to note is this JUST started with me and it seems with those posting in the other forum.

    ANSWERED Site being listed as risky

    It's doing it in both Edge and Chrome with multiple websites. No new plugins or extensions added by me. See posts in forum heading Website blocking under false positives. Others there having problem with starfieldtech which should be related to GoDaddy and website security.

    ANSWERED Site being listed as risky

    This has been noted on another forum section under Website blocking, but I'm also opening it here as it may be more widely noted. All of a sudden, crl.starfieldtech.com is getting numerous popups, when visiting different web pages, that it is risky. The popups say it with an outbound connection. When I try to go to the starfieldtech.com website, it is being blocked. I ran a full system scan with 0 problems found. This only started this morning and I was wondering if a MB definition update is responsible or should I be concerned?
