  3. Hi Ron thanks for your reply. Please find attached the logs requested: - mbam - you will find 2 files: pre- and post malware detection - adwcleaner - frst (2 files) A note on the FRST log. The file says that I have both Avast and BD up to date. However, I uninstalled BD more than 2 months ago (with both Windows Uninstall and BD's own uninstall tool). I double checked this using REVO, and it does not show BD as an installed program. As mentioned, my main issue is the fact that I am unable to open Internet Options and System Restore seems in some ways compromis
  4. I am running a PC with Win Xp SP3 (32Bit) with Avast Free 17.8 as primary real-time AV, complemented by MBAE v45 and MBAM free 3.3.1 as an on-demand malware scanner. Since yesterday my system has started behaving weirdly. It started when Secunia PSI asked to check my internet connection, was not able to connect to the update server and was unable to scan files. After a couple of reboots, it came online again and now it's working fine. Thinking it was an issue linked to the firewall permission, I tried to open the internet option tab in control panel and - here is the problem. In
  5. Hi Arthi thanks for the information. I have tried following your reco, but the registry key is already set at the value requested. Screenshot of the current situation attached. Pls let me know. Thx
  6. Apologies - here it goes Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.zip
  7. Thanks for coming back to me Arthi. Logs from MBAE user data as well as from FRST attached. Look forward to knowing what's wrong with my PC. Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit.zip Addition.txt FRST.txt
  8. Thanks Arthi. I upgraded to v45 and the issue persists, ie - MBAE.exe doesn't start neither at boot nor at the launch of a program it was supposed to protect. The only active service is mbae-svc.exe, yet the logs show that my programs are being protected anyway. I have worked around it by putting a shortcut to mbae.exe into the startup folder, thus forcing a launch at boot. Thanks for your help.
  9. Hi Rsullinger, An update on this issue. This morning we are back to square one. On system startup, MBAE.exe didn't start, the only active service is mbae-svc.exe, yet the logs show that my programs are being protected anyway. Something i didn't notice until today is that If I manually launch mbae and then I click on "hide icon" on the mbae icon on my system tray, then mbae.exe gets killed. I will stick to mbae in its current form (only mbae-svc.exe active) until I get further advice/ input from you guys. Thanks for your help.
  10. Hi Rsullinger I followed your recommendation and it appears everything is now back to order. The MBAE icon is showing on the system tray and both mbae.exe and mbae-svc.exe are now running. Thanks for your help. As a side note, pls remember to instruct folks trying to install a lower version (eg v24) that the MBAE installer has the option "automatically upgrade to new versions" enabled by default. This means that if you download the installer for v24 and try to install the program, before you actually manage to reach the GUI and uncheck the "automatically upgrade to new versions" box
  11. I have a doubt about MBAE startup on my XP SP3 machine. I recently had to downgrade to v24 from v41 after v41 proved not supported on XP machines. Since this downgrade, I noticed that the MBAE icon does not show on the system tray although the program it's set to launch on boot. Puzzled, I reviewed the active services via Process Explorer and I noticed that the only active MBAE service is mbae-svc.exe, not the main mbae.exe. If I launch MBAE, then the icon appears on my sytem tray and mbae.exe starts. When reviewing the logs on MBAE UI, I also saw that all programs appeared to h
  12. Very similar issue running XP SP3. On top of the snags mentioned above, on my PC MBAE never starts at boot. Most of the time, killing the hung task via Task Manager solves the issue, but sometimes it doesn't and a system restart becomes necessary. My PC has also become more unpredictable, particularly with longer lag times, especially on web browsing, but also on app opening (Acrobat, Office 2010) As an additional background, I have Avast Free 17.7.2314 running as primary AV, supplemented by MBAM (downgraded to free) standalone. I initially thought it c
