  1. I got a new laptop, windows 10. I installed malwareybytes and used it without trouble. Then I installed a program called Freemake (using the link provided in the e-mail when I purchased it some time ago). About 10 minutes later, malwarebytes turned itself off and few seconds later closed itself all together. When I try to open malwarebytes again I get this error:

    Mbam.exe - system error
    The code execution cannot proceed because mbcut.dll was not found.
    Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

    I don't know if it's connected at all to installing Freemake, I used the full installation and did not uncheck anything. I am worried about being infected now even though searching Freemake on google says that it's a safe program that sometimes installs unwanted programs (in this case, how can I find out which programs it installed on my laptop?).

    Please help. Thanks! I will try to reinstall malwarebytes in the meantime.

  2. Ever since I bought malwarebytes 3.0, the Web Protection ocassionally turned off by itself and it would stay off for days. Even after clicking "turn it on" many times, it would remain off.

    I bought malwarebytes about 6 months ago. And now, for the past month, it has never been on at all. How do I fix this?

    I ran the FRST and MB-check logand attached the zip file to this topic.

    I personally do not bother scanning externals with MB. With autoplay turned off that keeps the autorun infections at bay.

    Not knowing what you store on your external in most cases MB does not scan or detect those file types anyway.

    Malwarebytes does not target script files. That means MB will not target; JS, HTML, VBS, .CLASS, SWF, BAT, CMD, PDF, PHP, etc.

    It also does not target documents such as; PDF, DOC, DOCx, XLS, XLSx, PPT, PPS, ODF, etc.

    It also does not target media files;  MP3, WMV, JPG, GIF, etc.


    What other effective way can I scan my externals? Is KTS sufficient or can I take other measures that are more thorough? (Nothing too complex please as I am still a beginner)

  4. I read this link from 2015:

    The user stated that you should exclude certain files of MBAM in KTS in order to not have the 2 programs intervene each other.


    #1 Since I am installing malwarebytes 3.0 instead of MBAM, could someone tell me which files I need to exclude?

    #2 Can someone tell me how to do this? The link in that thread forwards to a tutorial on how to enable/disable Trusted Applications in KTS. Is that how it should be done? And wouldn't you need to have "Trusted Applications" enabled all the time in order for it to exclude the Malwarebytes files? If so, what are the downsides to having it enabled all the time?

    #3 Do I need to exclude the KTS files in Malwarebytes too?



  5. Thank you for the prompt replies.

    I have decided to supplement my Kaspersky Total Security with malwarebytes (, even though on the Kaspersky forum they said that Kaspersky scans for malware too).

    Which is better MBAM or malwarebytes 3?

    Do I need to buy the premium version? And if I do, won't the extra features the paid version provides intervene with what Kaspersky is already doing?
    And on how many devices can I use the paid version? I have 4 PC/laptops, 3 tablets and 4 phones.

  6. Is it wise to use Malwarebytes, Emsisoft and Kaspersky Total Security together? Will these programs intervene each other?

    Which version of Malwarebytes should I use? And could someone please give me information on how and if I should use live protection on all 3 programs at the same time?

    I am just trying to get the maximum security without risking negative effects, as before I resetted my laptop installing Emsisoft ruined my applications as I had different programs installed aswell.
