  1. Sorry, misunderstood. Should it be restored from quarantine? No ill effects reported without it.
  2. Thanks for the response. Where might I find additional info regarding this threat? Most importantly, how it evaded active protection by more than MBAM? Or where system might have potentially been exposed? User will most likely ask.
  3. Detected during last night's scan & subsequently quarantined. Legit? MBAM DETECTION Results.txt MBAM QUARANTINE Results.txt
  4. DAEMON Tools Lite is an optical drive emulator (virtual drive) used to mount .iso images, et al. No relation to MBAM. Removal of DTLIte should have no effect on MBAM. https://www.daemon-tools.cc/products/dtLite
  5. Updated to Beta Component 1.0.979 per announcement: No more stutters/hangs/etc.. We are pleased. 😀
  6. Original report here: Subsequent offline discussion w/ LiquidTension in early Feb.. New logs: mbst-grab-results.zip
  7. This particular bug surfaced ~ Jan 9th & disabling Web protection is currently the only solution. Using Process Monitor, one can observe MBAM consuming increasing amounts of memory. While there was no specific mention of a fix for this, I tried the latest beta. Instead of choppy sound, system locks up HARD within an hour, so no fix there.
  8. Close to the bottom of the gdata-software download page, there is a AVCleaner tool: "You need this tool to completely uninstall your G DATA security solution (e.g. to reinstall it). AntiVirus Cleaner deletes from your system all remains of the program which were not removed by a simple uninstall." This is probably the best approach for removing left-overs.
  9. Win 7 Ultimate (x64). MBAM Premier, Avast Premium Security (exclusions applied to BOTH) 1st noticed this following an MBAM update on 1/9. NO other updates applied (PC is 'notify/let me decide' for ALL apps). Upon returning home 2 days later, noticed that ALL WMC recordings were plagued by stuttering, buzzing audio & fluctuating audio volume levels. As I was recovering from a procedure, I had no time/inclination towards debugging this, so I just deactivated my license & occasionally checked this forum for similar reports. After a manual update last night, I restored my license & was quickly able to reproduce the issue watching Live TV (network tuner) , streaming internet radio, or watching a movie from my NAS... definitely a network thing. Based on a similar report by BillH99999, I tried disabling 'Web Protection' (required reboot), which resolved the issue. Considering I 1st encountered this ~a month ago, I was rather surprised it remains an issue so I'm chiming in. Logs attached. mbst-grab-results.zip
  10. Perhaps the description was ill-considered, but the omission of pertinent details is the point...
  11. Please. Since it's already necessary to drill down to view the detail, & the report screen is rather sparsely populated, I fail to understand the need to 'clean it up'.
  12. I've been in the habit of periodically reviewing the scan reports & I can confirm that the 3.x (UI) report included all the detail that is now only available via an export in v4.x.
  13. I don't know if this will be of any help, but I've been running Avast Premium Security (latest, 'RealSite' protection disabled) alongside MBAM 4.x without noticing an issues. 'RealSite' has been disabled due to past issues, so I would suggest testing to see if it alleviates the problem?
  14. Updated to FF v70.0.1 last week & had no issues w/ MBAM v3.x. Updated MBAM to v4.x today & still no issues. Sounds like FF can't save profile updates on close (read-only), so the process gets 'stuck' & is still active when you restart FF. Does MBAM protect FF profiles in a manner I've never noticed? If not, I'd think just fixing the profile permissions SHOULD resolve the issue.
  15. Been there, done that. But I also understand some people have lives... never met one, but I understand... 😑
  16. I find myself 'joining the the choir' here. I regard MBAM as a (valued) tool & expect the UI to provide detailed status at a glance, sans glitz. Make it skinnable for those that crave personalization (if you must), but I, too, would prefer a more business-like (professional) presentation. Never quite got over the Windows XP 'Fisher-Price' interface... which was, at least, optional. Just another $.02.
  17. I appreciate your hesitation, but would never have considered posting either had I detected anything untoward. Sorry, I probably should have obscured them somehow.(insert code?). The upshot was that these are common javascript 'toys', not malware. The forum post suggested 'disabling a screensaver', but it could just as easily have been something in the browser cache.
  18. Is this what you are seeing? auz.github.io/Bug/ I found this discussion via websearch: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/620622/insect-on-screen-malware/
  19. I've run into this before. The problem (in my case) is that once you've provided admin credentials to perform the uninstall/repair operation, things that are configured to run after a reboot apply to the admin account. After reboot, if you auto-login, or log into to user account, those things don't happen. Log out & log back in as admin and the re-installation will execute. Give that a try.
