  1. Thanks. I'm guessing the only way it could do that is by constantly having spiders scanning the web, which is so large, must be very powerful software to do that.
  2. I'm also curious because I am again using malwarebytes alongside Kaspersky, where for a long time I relied only on Kaspersky. But Kaspersky let me down for the first time. I went to a site for information, and a minute or two later, Kaspersky warned me I had been infected with fileless software. Kaspersky detected the virus, successfully deleted it, but in the process I found I had some corrupt Windows files which I could not repair with a Scan or any other way, so ultimately I had to reinstall Windows. So if Malwarebytes would have prevented the infection to begin with, that would be a bi
  3. Exactly what does Malwarebytes do? I went to a legit website to purchase a product, submitted my credit card number, sent it, got a thank you and then all of a sudden I got a Malwarebytes blocked site due to Trojan alert. I don't think it was the site I was on, but apparently something on that site threw me to a rogue site? Which got me thinking, I know malwarebytes has a data base of bad ip addresses, but there must be thousands of sites added every day that have dangerous links or exploits, so does malwarebytes scan every website you go to for malware before giving you an alert, or is it
  4. Just installed Kaspersky Office Security 8, the newest version. It required deletion of malwarebytes claiming incompatibility. I know it was months before I could use malwarebytes with Kaspersky 7. I suppose I will need to wait again with this newest kaspersky version?
  5. If I understand it, Version 4.1 is now compatible with Kaspersky? do I need to worry about exclusions?. I want the secondary protection of malwarebytes if at all possible. I caught a fileless malware from visiting a website the other day, and although Kasperky stopped it while in memory, I still wasted time as kaspersky used advanced processes to disinfect the computer. Then I had to reset my Chrome account to stop popups. Kaspersky worked well but I was a little irritated it allowed the exploit onto the machine to begin with.
  6. Unless or until Malwarebytes and Kaspersky reach an agreement on compatibility, I have learned to just go with Kaspersky. I have several long term licenses available for malwarebytes and two of them are used on my daughters' apple computers. The others simply will lie inactive. I use windows though and I just don't think anything can beat Kaspersky for overall solid protection. I still use Malwarebytes free to scan but it never finds anything because I assume Kaspersky lets nothing in. I would love to use Malwarebytes as secondary protection, but if they are not compatible they are not co
  7. Thank you Exile. Can you keep us updated when there is compatibility again? For now, I am just going to go with Kaspersky, but would still prefer Malwarebytes too, not only as secondary, but because I noticed it warned about about and blocked exploits from some web pages that Kaspersky seemed to miss, or at least Malwarebytes detected the exploits first.. Thanks.
  8. Same thing just happened to me. I uninstalled malwarebytes this time. No matter what I did in the past, no matter what exclusions I put in, Malwarebytes still was blocking kaspersky in some of its applications. They both seemed to be working okay anyway, and would like to continue using Malwarebytes...but not if somehow it impairs the performance of Kaspersky.
  9. I have used every possible exclusion, but no matter what I have done I have to accept Kaspersky and Malwarebytes are not compatible per the attached screenshot. So my question is with Malwarebytes services being blocked by Kaspersky, is Malwarebytes doing me any good? All of the modules are green and appear to be functioning, and malwarebytes has blocked malicious websites on my computer. So what am I losing? If Malwarebytes is being blocked from doing its primary job, maybe I should simply remove it from my computer and live with Kaspersky by itself? I liked the secondary backup of malw
  10. The answer really comes down to what you want to protect imho. My daughters use only Malwarebytes on their macs...and that likely is good enough. But I would never rely solely on malwarebytes on my windows computer...why? because I use my computer for work and not only would downtime cost me money, but would make available confidential information for my clients. I can't and won't take that chance..so I use malwarebytes for secondary protection and rely on what I believe is the best security out there...kaspersky, with 30 levels of protection..far better than windows defender as far as I a
  11. Exile, I will say one thing with the caveat that I know Kaspersky is a much larger company with far many more "experts" on its programming staff...but having been using it for years now....I never recall a time when an update caused a problem with my computer. Once a year I upload the new program, always flawlessly...other than that it updates itself behind the scenes. Just saying. Last January the issue with Malwarebytes is old news now, but caused quite a problem at the time, and then there was a small blip what, a month ago or so on some Win 7 computers? There is nothing that hur
  12. Thanks folks...I do have advanced disinfection technology enabled in Kaspersky as well as rootkit scan and safe money. I am unwilling to turn any of these off...I use Safe Money all of the time, and not sure what advanced disinfection technology does, not a clear description on the web, but if it works on memory processes and prevents malware from taking hold, it is obviously important. Interestingly, I went to this site to test malwarebytes web protection, ip block notification, http://iptest.malwarebytes.org and that seems to work on my computer too...see below... So bottom line,
  13. Really, If every computer user on the planet knows this, why don't the experts at malwarebytes know this? Thank you exile, but I have to assume that HIPS is part of Kaspersky's "system watcher" and sure it can be turned off...but best as I can tell there is no way to exclude anything...anyway, that is the part of the program that protects malicious activity, like Ransomware, from infecting your computer ..stops it cold and rolls back the damages...so I guess I will continue using both and not worry about whatever Kaspersky is blocking. I know that Malwarebytes still works because it has
  14. best I can tell...everything in malwarebytes is trusted by kaspersky and its firewall...and yet it still blocks the service.
  15. Here are my kaspersky firewall rules regarding malwarebytes...if you or anyone can make a suggestion as to what I should add or delete or edit.....to get the memory process working......
  16. The only detail I can come up with using Kaspersky is the attached. I have no idea if or how to figure out what role the firewall is playing....I suspect that Kaspersky will block memory processes no matter what is excluded due to the danger they pose..but I am speculating there.....
  17. No matter what I have done exclusion wise, Kaspersky always blocks malwarebyte services on my win7 pro computer...attached are my exclusions and kaspersky report...if anybody has any suggestions... thanks. Otherwise, this has been going on forever, and I assume Kaspersky will continue blocking memory processes and Malwarebytes will still do what it is supposed to do in the background.
  18. By the way, I do use Malwarebytes business anti exploit on the server and malwarebytes premium on the desktops as secondary protection. I feel comfortable that between the two programs...we will have no problems regardless of what the staff opens in email or not.
  19. Thanks...interesting article and I will go with just Malwarebytes on the macs...but not on my windows computers.....The article says Windows defender is good enough supplanted with Malwarebytes...and that "But the best protection is layers and good habits:.......They can talk about good habits all they want...but I have an office with several staff members who will open up malicious but innocent looking email items no matter how much training they have. Before Kaspersky (sans malwarebytes), I used Symantec and before Symantec free AV programs...and managed to get infected no matter what progr
  20. I have been using windows forever...and I use Malwarebytes premium on top of Kaspersky. Kaspersky provides firewall, mail scans, etc. protection and lets nothing through...and Malwarebytes I consider secondary protection just in case something gets by Kaspersky. And it has come in handly blocking rogue websites and exploits before detected by Kaspersky. My daughters use Mac and have done so without any sort of malware protection. Recently I installed malwarebytes premium on their computers and it did, on a scan, detect four malware threats and quarantined them on my daughter's college
  21. Just in case this helps...something I noticed about my computer.... I have a Win 7 64 Pro myself...no freezes at all. I just looked at my Kaspersky Report which I do once a week or so, and Kaspersky routinely blocks Malwarebytes from using memory processes...even though I have excluded Malwarebytes in Kaspersky and exlcuded kaspersky in Malwarebytes settings. Perhaps therefore the memory processes which are not allowed to operate on my computer have something to do with this Freezing. Just speculating here....but could be I suppose.
  22. FWIW, I use Windows 7 Pro on my computer. I did not use my computer the last ten days of December, being on vacation, but upon returning in early January, I did not and have not noticed any Freezing problems, and I use my computer a lot. I did however notice some other issues...programs not working properly, etc, not able to access the web using I.E., error notices, etc. I used the software at Tweak.com to reset everything....and so far the computer seems to be working fine. I also ran an SFC /scannow scan and a have some corrupt and non-repairable files, and per Tweak.com, I also have a n
  23. Digmorcrusher....it depends which site you download it from. Some of the sites load it up with malware...I think the cleanest sites is the majorgeeks site. Ghost....my malwarebytes blocked the backdoors.....so that no additional software could be downloaded to the computer....what Kaspersky did was to stop the malware in its tracks while it was starting to make changes to my registry entries, etc., eliminated the malware and rolled back all of the changes....so they worked in Unison. Of course if I didn't have malwarebytes, perhaps kaspersky would have blocked the backdoors itsel
  24. Just for what it is worth, these imgburn download websites are all over the place..and i noticed the downloads are sometimes larger..sometimes smaller, depending on the website offering the download...the larger ones containing more malware. I have read the cleanest down load is on majorgeeks...but there is some sort of malware even in its download. I leave it to you guys to decide if the many sites with this program should be flagged or not.....but its pretty bad when you can download a packed program that malwarebytes and antiviruses do not detect until you start installing and unpacki
  25. I downloaded imgburn which I heard is a great program for burning ISOs from disks, ran both Kaspersky and Malwarebytes scans of the installation file and both scans indicated clean. Then executed the installation. After being unpacked...Kaspersky flagged as malicious, deleted the program and rolled back due to the damage caused by the malware. Malwarebytes at the same time blocked several websites the malware was apparently attempting to open some backdoors. I feel stupid...not having uploaded to virus total like I usually do a file before executing...which after the fact was flagged by
