  1. Didn't I just say that? (wink! wink!) Seriously, what I tried to say is that if script-kiddies can crack the CIA, NSA, army, navy, Google, Amazon, and other sites that should really know what they're doing, the best we can hope for is to armor-up the best we can, try to stay below the radar and pray. I like the concept of behavior-based protection as opposed to using lists that are obsolete even before they're released. My only concern is if the protection program waits for something "suspicious" to happen, isn't it already too late? (Example: There's a guy in your be
  2. Thanks! BTW, here's the post that tells the whole story: Years ago I was a distributor for Avira's anti-virus products and they relied heavily on the test results from AV Comparatives. These people do just what the article describes - a sample of already-known, (make that read "stale"), virus threats - is scanned to see what detects what. Though potentially useful, it doesn't tell the whole story. 1. No matter how often you update a signature file, zero-day exploits can still hammer you into the ground. 2. AV Comparatives' test methodology involved setting the AV p
  3. That was something I had thought might be true. However, so many of these startup animations are just "enforced advertising" with no real use, I thought I'd ask. Thanksfor the quick reply! Jim "JR"
  4. Greetings! I am running Malwarebytes on several Android systems I own and - so far - things are fine. Thank you! Some of my systems, particularly my Samsung Galaxy J1 smartphone and a cheap Chinese tablet, are woefully under powered and have minimal resources available. Though I appreciate the visual image of The Cyborg From Hell guarding my stuff, it takes a long time to finish the display animation. Is it possible to disable the splash screen animation? If so, how? If not, can this be considered in a future version? Thanks for any help you can provide.
  5. Greetings! I am the proud owner of a subscription to the super-duper premium version of Malwarebytes (V 3.5.1, current as of this instant date) My system is a Windows-7 Professional 64 bit version on an HP Envy series EliteBook 8750, maxed out to the gills. Issue: Malwarebytes Premium 3.5.1 will not allow even a right-click scan of a networked folder. I suspect that this is a marketing issue to differentiate their Super-Professional For Businesses with Deep Pockets version. OK, I can accept that. (I used to run a computer business and was a dealer for a compet
  6. Greetings! I am the proud owner of one of your "paid" premium subscriptions. Looking at the blurbs about your software, it would lead me to believe that it does everything INCLUDING washing the dishes and changing the baby's diaper! Of course, I understand that the marketing types that write this stuff tend to wax eloquent about their products capabilities. All marketing hype aside, to what extent, if at all, is Malwarebytes a "complete" AV/Threat solution? Is it absolutely, really, really, really and truly all I need, or is it more of a "supplement" providing an additional la
