  1. Thanks. By clicking on Never register Malwarebytes in the Windows action center de-activated the AV security layer
  2. I installed Malwarebytes 3.0 trial version and I noticed in Windows Security Center under Virus and Threat Protection it says another AV was active (meaning Defender was no longer the active AV) According to this forum's FAQ's, it says: "If there is only a Microsoft antivirus registered and active, we will not register in Windows Security Center in order to preserve the benefit of layered security." I don't have any third party AV installed. Why does the AV protection in Defender become inactive after installing Malwarebytes 3 (trial version)? I want to purchase a subscription to the pre
  3. Hello Ron, First of all, I deleted the FRST folder in safe mode. The real reason I'm responding back is related to a question that I was hoping you can share your thoughts / or a comment regarding the malware that was just removed. After my initial individual efforts using Malwarebytes3 and AdwCleaner, and also through your guidance, my system now starts to try automatically installing the Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) driver. The automatic install repeatedly fails after becoming stuck in queue. My question is probably outside the boundaries or scope of this forum
  4. The system is running fine thank you... No signs of infection. I'll check to verify that the OEM has the latest network driver. I found the files quarantined in C:\ FRST\Quarantine\C \ProgramFiles(x86)\DriverToolkit Questions: Do you recommended (deleting) the quarantined files? Can this entire path directory be safely deleted?
  5. Hello I've attached all the log files per the instructions. DriverToolkit PUPs were removed from C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\DriverToolkit. I'm not at all familiar with the Farbar recovery scan tool. I'm not sure what the tool performs. I don't know where to look to find the quarantined DriverToolkit PUPs The Fixlog reported under =Remove Proxy= that 4 registry entries were removed. Also Fixlog reported C:\Program Files(x86)\DriverToolkit => moved successfully Addition.txt FRST.txt AdwCleaner[C02].txt MB3 Threat Scan.txt Fixlog.txt
  6. alrighty okey-doke then. Since almost 24 hrs passed since my post, I assume the standard protocol on this forum for reaching the support team is to first attach the mbst-grab results zip file. I don't know why exactly this would necessitate invoking a response unless if my screen shot didn't show the same files that are on the list of quarantine files from the Malwarebytes log (file:14) posted on the Removal Instructions I do need to bring to attention one fact however and that is this. I ran AdwCleaner BEFORE running Malwarebytes 3. AdwCleaner quarantined most of the DriverToolkit PUP's.
  7. To add some clarity (or possibly confusion), the Removal Instructions for DriverToolkit posted here on this forum lists these files as being quarantined. Please refer to the Malwarebytes log (file: 14) from that original post on the Removal Instructions. The question is why didn't MB quarantine these files?
  8. I ran into a big problem with the Windows 10 feature update that I couldn't solve. I contacted Microsoft the first time in like 10 years. I requested level 2 support... and MS offered to troubleshoot the headache by remotely assist. Without my consent or knowledge they installed DriverAssist by Megaify Software. Seriously, to troubleshoot a problem with Windows update? Unfathomable. After screaming obscenities, I ran Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner to scan & quarantine the PUP's and registry entries. Malwarebytes quarantined all except four files in a folder called C:\Program Files(x86)\
  9. Thank you. The clean operation removed all remnants in the system files and registry. I wasn't aware the Malwarebytes Support tool could perform this without a re-install. Great!
  10. Would someone kindly define what the Malwarebytes bot means by their Windows product? e.g, Adware Cleaner, JRT, Windows Firewall Control by BiniSoft ? Or is it supposed to mean Malwarebytes 3 for Windows versus Malwarebytes for Android ?
  11. Neither of the two selections provided by the Malwarebytes bot are relative. I didn't install a Malwarebytes Windows product nor do I have a license issue for a paid version of MalwareBytes I only installed Malwarebytes 'Trial' premium version for consumers.
  12. I have the feature update of version 1809 build 17763 Windows 10 that I received in December 2018 through the Windows Update process. I have been running Windows 10 without any issues whatsoever (knock on wood). The previous version I undated from also had no issues either which was version 1803. I enabled the Windows ransomware protection just last month for the first time and it performed flawlessly without any issues. It automatically creating protected folders and allowed me to add apps through the Controlled Folder Access in Windows 10 settings. Approximately the week followin
  13. Thank you for clarifying this. The Binisoft landing page beginning with "We at Malwarebytes are big fans too". I don't know another way to interpret that announcement. Hence the reason for the obfuscation and asking the question who the official support site is.
  14. After the acquisition last year and the fact that one can't download Windows Firewall Control directly from Malwarebytes official website, does Malwarebytes offer support to a user where they might be experiencing with the latest version? A recent article on Ghacks cited their source from Malwarebytes asking users to uninstall the current version of Windows Firewall Control manually before they run the installer again. Other than the measure to uninstall previous versions, there are very few posts that I could find on Malwarebytes forum about problems encountered. It would build greater ass
  15. Further reading on Google has led me to more understanding behind Google's bolstered efforts, beginning on Chrome (beta) for Android (64.0.3282.29). This was supposed to include big changes on the browser's security side. It was in version 64 that it's pop-up blocker features behavior was included so that it would be more efficient at blocking re-directs. After disabling Javascript for the very first time today as suggested, I noticed an inability to log in to some online accounts. Yet my device has been updated to Chrome stable version 64.0.3282.119 ever since Feb. 1st with the str
