  1. Apparently mine updated automatically, but I still have web protection off as well as the two Avast protections. It's late so I'll wait until later after I wake up to turn on at least web protection.
  2. Thanks, I will as usual have to wait until I'm done doing normal everyday stuff! Once I have updated MWB I will monitor the program and post if it works or doesn't work.
  3. Currently I have turned off Avast's Do not disturb and Real site as well as MWB's Web protection, which has stopped the problems mentioned in this and other threads. This is extremely frustrating since I still have a year and 3 months left on my Avast subscription with my MWB renewal coming due in 10 days.
  4. Currently I have Real Time and Web Protection disabled and just turned on Do Not Disturb after reading your post. I repaired Avast as well. I had no issues while all three were disabled Question; I read that old files in Avast were not being removed when the program updated, is this still the case. I posted 4 screenshots on Avast and wonder if the two files dated last year could be the problem? See my post above and click on this title; Avast Blocking Access to Internet After Update
  5. Avast forum Avast Blocking Access to Internet After Update 18.6.2349 MWB forum Web Protection won't start - Avast also installed
  6. First, let me correct the title of this thread. It's not that web protection won't run, its the fact that if I do enable web protection it causes some interference with internet access, access to windows programs such as network diagnosis, event viewer, etc....This happened after I updated Avast. Also, at first my system struggled before applying the Avast update, which I do not have set to automatic since I like to apply the updates when I'm ready. There was no indication there was an update available for some odd reason. I found out by opening the program's interface due to the system struggle. That's when I updated the program and after that I turned on MWB 3's web protection. I still had a problem with the above mentioned issues, so I turned off web protection. I found this thread on Avast's forums Avast Blocking Access to Internet After Update 18.6.2349 Excerpts; I just found this about an hour ago and haven't performed the repair, but I did see 2 of the old files identified in Avast. You'll also notice that a MWB user on Avast posted a MWB thread on this issue. I'll update this with my results later after I'm done with my original plans for tonight.
  7. Thanks exile360 I realize it's a separate issue and will start a new thread after I'm finished with my research on Avast. I just thought this was odd that after turning web protection off again without Avast running, the issue stopped.
  8. Currently I have been unable to turn on web protection. It has nothing to do with BSOD's, and everything to do with losing my internet connection. This began to happen after Avast put out an update, which I applied on Thursday the 23rd. That's when I decided to take the plunge and turn on my web protection. Within a few hours I started experiencing internet connection issues and browser freezing. Once I couldn't open event viewer. I would have to reboot using the reset button because normal restart would hang forever. I then chose to not load Avast and left web protection on and still had the same problem. Last night I turned off web protection and I've had no issues since. My MWB 3 is up to date, so I'm thinking I will have to either repair Avast or reinstall it as well as reinstalling MWB 3. I've been to Avast forum and searched their forum for issues with their latest update.
  9. Thanks for the response and information. I'll test the waters later.
  10. I was waiting for the program to notify me there was an update, but evidently that was not to be. Anyway, I have updated the program as exile360 has instructed, however I'm a bit hesitant to enable the web protection. Okay, not a bit, rather a lot hesitant. Could it be lack of confidence combined with the fact I just updated Windows two days ago, which seem to have caused the BSOD's in the first place?
  11. @migue Just uncheck web protection and you should be fine. I have Avast as well and since unchecking web protection haven't had any BSOD.
  12. I usually download podcast mp3 files from websites that use archive.org and MB would block my attempt, leaving me one option, which was to enter that url in my exclusion list. However, the url was not the mp3 url, but they did contain archive.org in the url. For example; www.analytics.archive.org. It may have had more to do with the content discussed in the podcast. Once, the url blocked was for a jpg file that wasn't anywhere on the website. It's been nearly 3 weeks since my last BSOD which is when I disabled the web protection.
  13. After my last BSOD on 6-23 I disabled web protection on 3.5.1 and have not had another one since. Malwarebytes is the first and only paid for spyware prevention product I've purchased. I did so in Sept of last year. Since then MB has had two problems with their updates. From 1995 to Sept 2017 using freeware versions I had none. So, come Sept when my paid subscription expires I will have a big decision to make.
  14. I'm in day 6 with 3.5.1 web protection disabled, running Avast IS, and no BSOD. I have a little over 2 months left on my year subscription and hope this gets sorted out before then.
  15. Thanks for the update. Currently, I have Avast Internet Security, which does some blocking and Avast browser extension. I hope a fix is found soon.
  16. Thanks, I thought so, but wasn't sure cause you never know for sure.
  17. I have Avast Internet Security and still had 3 BSOD'S since the update I performed on June 14.
  18. Curious if the BSOD after the installation of 3.4.5 over 3.5.1 could be caused by 3.5.1 entries/commands left in the registry. I'm no expert but this sounds plausible to me. Then again, I'm no expert.....oops I said that already. I''m waiting for the fix......patiently
  19. I unchecked web protection only, left the others checked on Saturday after a BSOD. I haven't had one since, but I'm not confident I won't. I've had 3 BSOD since June 15th. Looking back, I was watching/listening to a show on Youtube at the time or had one paused in another tab. I swear I read something before I found this thread that this netio.sys crash may have been caused by an outdated video driver, however mine is shown to be the best available driver. I haven't watched any youtube videos since and frankly I'm not willing to risk it yet. As for reverting back to 3.4.5, wouldn't I have uninstall the current version? Saying revert back almost sounds like one could just apply that version without doing a uninstall. Or it could just be my understanding of terms used.
  20. Thanks for the info, I do have Auto restart disabled. When the BSOD hits, I just restart the PC. For now I have real web protection disabled as that was suggested in this thread. The last fiasco with MB, I disabled the whole program almost immediately when I found out the cause and waited for the fix.
  21. Does the free trial version of "WhoCrashed" work? Using Blue Screen it doesn't show what program, only shows the driver, which is NETIO.SYS
  22. Also, I have Avast Internet Security installed. It's a paid for program, not a freebie.
  23. I have Windows 7 Home Premium, and updated to MBAB on 6-14 and the Windows update below. 2018-06 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4284826) Installation date: ‎6/‎14/‎2018 12:41 PM I also performed an optional update on 6-15 at 9:08am, see below; 2018-05 Preview of Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1 on Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB4103472) The first BSOD happened at 8:49am 6-15, the next one came at on 6-22 at 6:20pm, and the last one came on 6-23 at 4:07pm. I tried to update my graphics driver via Windows optional update twice on 6-15, but it failed. As of now, I have Real Time Web protection off and will wait for a fix. Will I be spared from a BSOD? As for uploading the dmp file, I'll wait until after my grandchildren go home later today. I need to have a little peace and quiet before I start a task like that. But seriously now, the last fiasco that happened was due to MB.
