I installed Malwarebytes to scan for potential viruses on my PC. Following that scan I had no issues shown on my system. However, I was placed on the Premium trial during which MAlwarebytes was using its active protection to detect and block access to "malicious sites". However, this blocked me from using many trusted services, including application like Teamspeak and Discord as well as seeming to block any and all use of game servers. I attempted to use the exclusion function to restore my access however that has yet to work. I also attempted to uninstall Malwarebytes, however the issue persisted.
Since leaving the premium trial, I no longer get notifications that sites or ips have been blocked. However I was never given the specific IP or files that were deemed malicious. At this point, all I know is that my computer is still connected to the internet, I can still access normal websites, but most if not all of gaming related online functions are blocked off from my use.
Games on Steam as well as Battlenet and Origin are being blocked.
