  1. False positive for file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\networx.sys This is part of the NetWorx Internet Bandwidth monitoring utility Its purpose is to monitor all network traffic and display transfer speeds and log the amount of data transferred. The detected file is an old freeware version not the current release and has been in use for the last 5 years without triggering Virus or Malware warnings. Malwarebytes v4.3.0 Free using detection update dated May 9th 2021 Malware.AI.1892063303, C:\Windows\System32\drivers\networx.sys, No Action By User, 1000000, 0, 0.0.0, 953F5BC3510BBFA6
  2. Have added Instagram to the "Allow List" - but Browser Guard is still triggering a Phishing warning. With the Allow List entry added you can open the Instagram.com front page or a specific user account OK. But as soon as you attempt to open any posts/image you again get hit with a Phishing warning screen - which you can over-ride (by clicking the "I want to continue to this site anyway" link - but you have to do this every time. There appears to be no way to make this choice permanent.
  3. I have now traced the problem to an interaction with another security application that I was trialing - that application is the Free version of "0patch Agent" ( www.0patch.com ). Either program running by itself works fine - but when both are running the problem with Winword.exe surfaces. Both applications are attempting to protect Winword in different ways - and also 0patch lists MBAE as something it is capable of protecting - although I am unclear if it is actively "patching" MBAE in the free version. Disabling the protection for Winword.exe inside 0patch doesn't seem to eliminate the p
  4. I am experiencing a problem with build 164 that affects MS Word 2003. With MBAE running and with Winword.exe shielded there is a problem with double clicking DOC files to open them in Word. Most often the first DOC file will open in Word - but thereafter attempting to open any other DOC file just hangs - and Word doesn't open - although Task Manager shows Winword.exe is actually running as a process, but no window is visible. These failed attempts to open DOC files just create additional Winword processes - but with no visible windows. After a long delay an error window appear
  5. I had to resort to uninstall and reinstall to regain the Allow List editing icons. Unfortunately this particular case doesn't allow you to use the sliders to reverse the Allow List addition. This is because the entry is the actual download link - which doesn't display a web-page, it just triggers the download. Also for this download you can't complete the download without ticking the box to add to Allow List. Unless you tick the box to add the Allow List entry you get stuck in a loop - with two repeating warnings - the first one for the full download link itself - and if you override t
  6. I have just encountered the same issue. I tried to download the Amazon Kindle reader for PC and Browser Guard blocked the download as suspicious - so ticked the box to over-ride and it added the whole download URL string including the filename - http…amazonaws.com/kindleforpc/55076/kindleforpc-installer-1.26.55076.exe As noted the GUI doesn't cope with such a long entry and you can no longer see either of the two delete options (Remove All or the Trashcan icon)
  7. Thanks for the whitelisting. But it would still be helpful to know what specifically was triggering the warning. I hand code the whole site and would like to understand what to avoid in any future projects.
  8. Stargateuk.info website is blocked as a Malware/Scams risk This is my own simple website - all hand coded - with no fancy features. I am at a loss to understand why it is triggering this warning I get the message "Website blocked due to possible suspicious activity" I have to disable the Malware/Scams protection to gain access The Malwarebytes main program (v2 & v3) have no issue with the site Virus Total shows no problems either: https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/fb6769f68b6840b5c1bdb4186d9a6889e794b6d6b870b001d16cbb9a07e0e609/detection Would be helpful to know what
  9. Agree - there are big problems with Chrome v67 and v68 Opening links in a new tab gives blank page (endless loading), attempting to add extensions freezes during "Checking", attempting to open internal chrome pages freezes with blank page (eg Extensions, Settings) and chrome.exe modules remain resident after closing program - preventing a reload. Reverting to build 90 solves all issues.
  10. I have now had this problem on two different occasions several months apart - on two different Win7x64 computers. When the problem manifests the symptoms are: The Notification Area icon disappears and manually running the mbae.exe results in no GUI window Protected programs no longer trigger a confirmation popup and mbae-test.exe shows protection non-functional Restarting Windows makes no difference (this usually fixes one of cases of MBAE not working) The odd thing is there are no error messages and nothing is recorded in the Windows Event Logs. The MBAE
  11. Not sure if this issue has been resolved - but I also had similar symptoms and error messages on a Win7x64 system running MBAE build 43. I experienced MBAE loading but not working - the MBAE driver Failing to load with the error message quoted above - and the Notification Area icon failing to appear. I just posted about the issue & fix on another thread here: Issues with Win7 & Google Chrome The fix for me was to install MBAE build 57 - despite no related issues being listed as fixed - and all is now working fine.
  12. I too can confirm that installing build 57 has solved all my issues - MBAE is now working perfectly once again. I was also suffering the same "Unknown Software Exception" error - with Win7x64 using MBAE build 43 - on 2 almost identical Win7 desktop computers. The issue appeared to start after the Feb 2018 Cumulative Rollup (KB4074598) - and/or the update to Google Chrome v65...181 (x64) from v64. Initially MBAE (build 43) appeared to recover after dismissing the error - but for unknown reasons the problem then progressed over the next few days to a situation where MBAE was lo
  13. Just collected database update v2018.01.27.07 - which so far looks good I am still using MBAM Premium v2.2.1.1043 which was suffering the same problems as v3 I was seeing blocks on IP range 172.217.23.xxx plus many Facebook, Google and AdBlock-Plus URL's Disabling Web Protection was effective but not ideal - but latest database update appears to be OK
  14. I really do not know what you are seeing - if the following doesn't deal with your query please post more details or a screen shot. The menu runs down the left side of the screen - select the Scan "Tab" This has the same three options as previous versions of the program - Threat Scan, Custom Scan and Hyper Scan Hyper Scan is only available to users of the Premium or Trial modes
  15. I agree - the new "Database Version" numbering system is a pointless downgrade of the available information.
