  1. A few days ago my Malwarebytes wouldn't open anymore. It still seemed to work on the background, I just couldn't open it up. I thought I read something about other people also having the problem. So I downloaded the support tool, and did a clean reinstall, after which it worked fine again. A few days later, during Norton Power Eraser scan (which is very aggressive and often has false positives and I probably had no reason to run it) It found FRSTenglish.exe (in the downloads folder) and said it was potentially dangerous and suggested removing it. After removing it, and after reboot
  2. Alright so I guess it was nothing to worry about in the end. Kind of had a feeling something seemed strange about it popping up identically on 2 different computers at the same time who aren't linked in any way. Thanks alot for the help, much appreciated.
  3. I'll restore them again and run a standard threat scan.
  4. I right clicked the "windows.old" folder and picked the scan with malwarebytes option.
  5. I did a restore on the quarantined items and then ran turned off the scan for rootkits in the options. Then I scanned the WINDOWS.OLD folder again. The same 2 files got flagged again. Are you sure this is nothing to worry about?
  6. It is in quarantine so would have to restore to scan it again I think. Should I do this?
  7. Order of events: - Ran a full system scan with malwarebytes yesterday on laptop. - Did a windows update yesterday on both desktop and laptop. - Decided to do a full system scan on Laptop today, after which it found 2 notepad.exe files as malware in C:\WINDOWS.OLD Malware.Generic.4236541952, C:\WINDOWS.OLD\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\NOTEPAD.EXE, Geen actie door gebruiker, 1000000, 0, 1.0.24656, 716BA54E48A9D426FC848000, dds, 00740846 Malware.Generic.4236541952, C:\WINDOWS.OLD\WINDOWS\WINSXS\WOW64_MICROSOFT-WINDOWS-NOTEPAD_31BF3856AD364E35_10.0.18362.693_NONE_CF0F2E5D362498EF\NOTEPAD.EXE - Ran
  8. So this was a false positive then? Nothing to worry about?
  9. Here is the log I think you need. There is also a file called MBAMSERVICELOG.LOG.bk1 in the same folder, but that seems to be from 5 days ago. Not sure if that's something you need. If you really need it I can try and add the Nortonsecurity.exe tomorrow, don't wanna risk restoring it right now in case its bad. MBAMSERVICE.LOG
  10. My bad, i was trying to follow instructions for wrong MBAM version before. No wonder it didn't work in reports there is the protection event that says, 'Ransomware blocked' I am guessing you need the log for that one, since all my scans where normal. Since the file where quarantined, I guess i have to restore them. Isn't that risky though? What if its not a false positive? The file you want is "C:\Program Files\Norton Security\Engine\\NortonSecurity.exe" I am guessing? Should I just restore it and see if I can add the file? How serious of a risk do you think this mig
  11. Norton Security was detected as Ransomware right after a Live update patch. I have been running Malwarebytes Premium and Norton Security side by side without problems for a while. However, something suddenly went wrong just now. Here's the order of events. - My computer had just rebooted since it had just have a crash. - Right after it booted again I went through my routine of updating virus definitions of both malwarebytes and run norton live update. - Malwarebytes update finishes first as usual. Norton says it has a new patch, as it sometimes does. I install it. - Immediate
  12. Good news, Clean install worked. I wasn't asked to reboot though, immedatly after cleanup it just asked to install the latest version of Malwarebytes. Last time I pressed repair and I thought that actually seemed to do a clean install. Guess it did not. When I did the repair before it did ask for a reboot tho. Still confused about what started this bug, but happy its working now. Thank you for your help.
  13. I'll try it like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/sbhakgvw7qc554z/mbam.zip?dl=0 not used to dropbox, hope this works.
