  1. Hello, vestacp.com is an open source control panel. It does not host any malware and such shouldn't be blacklisted. Thanks.

    Add Avast to PUP detection list

    Most programs that advertise themselves as driver updaters and registry cleaners that are free, yet Malwarebytes blocks them too. Free Avast isn't limited to all this junk either.
  3. Maybe it's time to classify it as a PUP within Malwarebytes? It does registry cleaning and you block other programs which do similar stuff.

  5. References: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/malwarebytes-news/2016/10/malwarebytes-gets-tougher-on-pups/ https://www.malwarebytes.com/pup/ Avast keeps adding add-ons and software that is potentially unwanted, which could result in computers being broken, they are: Google Toolbar Driver Updater Cleanup Premium, which also modifies the registry Constant popups Microsoft explicitly stated that no registry editing should be done by a program https://support.microsoft.com/en-nz/help/2563254/microsoft-support-policy-for-the-use-of-registry-cleaning-utilities If Malwarebytes can block Driver Updaters, such as these (which are the same variant), why is Avast an exception?

    Best free antimalware

    I would recommend HitmanPro and Zemana Anti Malware which are great to run alongside Malwarebytes as second hand scanners. https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us/hmp.aspx https://www.zemana.com/AntiMalware

    Malware & Personal Information

    A Trojan malware may obtain personal information that was entered, such as email addresses, passwords and credit card information. If you entered those things on a malware infected machine, you should change them to be more secure.
  8. Hi, Malwarebytes Premium doesn't seem to be working as good when uBlock Origin blocks content such as ads on Edge. For example, if i go to Chrome, and i enter a website such as coinhive.com which is blocked by Malwarebytes, no popup will appear if it's blocked by uBlock Origin However, If I was to go on Microsoft Edge and enter the same domain, it would still be blocked by uBlock Origin but Malwarebytes would display a warning message. I'd appreciate it if this warning could go away if uBlock Origin was enabled in both browsers, especially since there are two layers of adblocking and the IP address appears as 127.0.0.1.
  9. As I already have said, I have opened this topic to recommend stopping support for users on this forum. Not stop the program for functioning entirely on these outdated operating systems. I really can't get your point here. I can understand governments, hospitals and even schools using Windows XP for old devices so that they will still work, but I definitely do not see any person using a 512mb computer in 2018, to the point where even YouTube can't be opened. Even if there are such people, they should migrate to a more secure OS such as Puppy Linux which does provide security updates and can be supported on low-end systems. I understand that you're an expert and that you're usually very careful, but most of the people that come here do "please help i use Windows XP and i opened a file and now my system is entirely screwed", and they didn't even use Malwarebytes prior to that. This behavior should be discouraged and these users should be encouraged to move to a new operating system. Especially because operating systems such as Windows 10 are more resilient against any kinds of malware, especially when Microsoft managed to stop Wannacry within 14 minutes of it's outbreak on Windows 10. I honestly don't see Malwarebytes protecting any customer that fast on any operating system, especially if an outbreak happens during a weekend. You can't deny that Windows 10 and other operating systems aren't more resilient to malware than Windows XP. Take Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities for example. Windows XP has no patches for them, yet you claim that Malwarebytes Exploit Protection can protect against such vulnerabilities. It's not ethical for Malwarebytes to protect against such vulnerabilities, and most likely, it will fail. The only thing that I can understand are government entities using Windows XP to support some older devices, but even then, the government should have more than enough funds to support better technology. Even then, those computers should not be connected to the internet.
  10. While I do understand your viewpoint, I still believe that Windows XP should no longer be supported by Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes Exploit Protection cannot replace an OS level zero day patch in any way. At this point, am I able to get a Windows 98 laptop and ask you why I have malware and why Malwarebytes wont install on it? Also, I've meant to stop providing support on the forums, for all related problems and questions. Not the program itself. I see It as a waste of resources and time to help stubborn people who wont migrate from outdated operating systems.

    antivirus

    Windows Defender should work OK with Malwarebytes.
  12. Support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14223/windows-xp-end-of-support As such, I believe that Malwarebytes should stop providing support on these forums for this operating system, as it's only a waste of time to assist users that don't get any security patches or zero day bug fixes.
  13. This happened to me when my processor was overheating. As a result, the computer shuts down. Use programs like SpeedFan to check your temperature while you're doing the scan.
  14. It's quite ironic that Malwarebytes as a security company fails to prevent bots from creating threads on this forum to advertise malicious phone numbers/programs. Consider getting StopForumSpam, CleanTalk and KeyCaptcha.
  15. This is a known issue. Review this thread https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/220112-important-web-blocking-ram-usage/?do=getNewComment
