  1. Working fine now thanks! 👍
  2. No problem, still blocked at the time of writing. If all .org.uk domains are blocked, surely this must be some sort of bug, as they can't all be suspicious! 🤔
  3. Still blocked at the moment! ☚ī¸
  4. Thanks very much! So it's all .org.uk addresses that are being blocked. ☚ī¸ I do hope they fix it soon! Cheers, Dave. 🙂
  5. A website I authored and run, www.thedraculasociety.org.uk, is now being blocked by Malwarebytes Browser Guard due to "riskware". This has only just started to happen. Please tell me why this is, and what I need to do to prevent it happening. I assure you that there is nothing suspicious on the site, unless it has been modified without my knowledge. Thanks, Dave Hawley.
  6. This is off-topic here of course, but do try it, you won't regret it! Installation is very easy, and the default configuration is pretty much OK, but can be fine-tuned pretty comprehensively. You can make the menus look like any previous version of Windows from 95 up to and including Windows 7. Just play with the settings until you're happy with the way it looks. The Windows Explorer enhancements are great too, you can put back the old-style function buttons like cut/copy/paste/delete/properties etc.! 🙂
  7. I can't recommend Open Shell enough, it made Windows 8/8.1 usable for me! I absolutely loathed the only-designed-for-touchscreens Windows 8 interface. Windows 10 is a bit better, but is still much improved by Open Shell. I have a triple boot system with 10, XP, and (wait for it) Windows 98 on it! I have made the three interfaces look as similar as I can. 😊
  8. I still agree with this! 👍
  9. Yes, I'm sure you should be able to specify a minimum version of Firefox for the add-on to be installed on, many add-ons have this stated, in fact if you go to the download page with a version of Firefox that's too old, you usually get a message on the page "this add-on is not compatible with your version of Firefox". 🙂
  10. Thanks @rakeshsejwal, understood. The only thing I would say, as I did before, is that if there is a restriction on the Firefox versions that this add-on will work with, that should be stated on its Firefox add-on download page. At the moment, there is nothing to say that it doesn't work with all versions of Firefox. In fact, even better, it should be blocked from installing on versions of Firefox that it won't work with. This is especially important as it will appear to install on versions of Firefox that it's incompatible with, but then just won't work, which will cause a lot of confusion, at least it did for me! Cheers, Dave. 🙂
  11. Any more thoughts on this @rakeshsejwal? 🙂
  12. Yes, I did think it was a bit strange that Malwarebytes' main service could be killed so easily! Anyway, I have now returned the mbamchameleon service to system start, and everything looks OK again. 🙂
  13. The registry keys are certainly protected, I get "access denied" if I try to change them, but I can kill MBAMService.exe with Task Manager. It immediately runs again if I do, but it does terminate. I don't know if that's expected behaviour. I can also stop the service using the Services MMC as well, as I mentioned in an earlier post, but I gather from the reply that is expected behaviour. 🙂
  14. Yes, you could well be right, this is all very strange indeed! Actually the anti-exploit protection, where the original problem was, seems to be fine now, it's the self-preservation module I'm now having issues with! I must say that I'm now sorely tempted to just leave the self-protection service on system start and not boot start, and hope that it's still doing everything that it should in that mode. The main program certainly seems to be happy that the early self-preservation protection is enabled in that mode. Presumably it won't start quite so early in system mode as it will in boot mode, but I don't know how much the delay would be and whether that compromises it in any way. 🙂
  15. Yes, I did wonder about that, and I tried two earlier versions that people online said worked fine with XP, 3.20 and 2.96. Neither of them worked to log the system boot either! All the versions I've tried, 3.50, 3.20, and 2.96 seem to work fine when run normally, logging all the system activity as they should, but the boot logging system doesn't seem to do what it should at all. Another mystery. 🙂
