  1. Is it necessary of use Windows Defender Anti Virus with Malwarebytes installed or should I just use the Windows Defender firewall?
  2. That is interesting... I think I might have to give it a try then. Thanks a lot for your insight, I appreciate your time. Thats the only reason I have avoided Windows Defender.
  3. I am using the most recent version, I manually allow it to update every 2-3 months or sooner if I find there is an issue with an app I use.
  4. Hmm, I guess that is a no to my question about firewalls other than Windows Defender. The reason I don't like using Windows Defender is because I don't like having to keep Windows 10 constantly updated, there are too many issues with it and this is my work PC, I rely on it too much to have to deal bad updates. I don't think there is a way to keep Windows Defender definitions updated without leaving Windows 10 update wide open to downloading bad drivers, consuming my bandwidth, and telegraphing the color of underwear I buy to Bill Gates and all this friends, is there?
  5. Hey, I have been using Malwarebytes and AVG together for years but occasionally at different times I have had some blue screen issues. In the past I have turned off the windows reporting setting (or whatever its called) in MWB and set MWB to have a delayed start by 30 seconds, and this fixed the problem for a long time. Recently it started again and I have ran hardware, harddrive, RAM tests, etc, along with updating all my drivers and all that jazz. Before reinstalling windows 10 I was thinking about just removing either AVG or MWB to see if it stops. I trust MWB a lot more than AVG to be
  6. Sorry for the late reply. The normal full scan completes with no issues and it seems to check fcr root kits. I was doing a custom scan with root kits checked and that scan doesn't seem to finish, no matter how much time passes. It keeps getting slower and slower until its barely moving at all. I noticed she has a high disk usage even without MB running... so let me run some diagnostics, she might have a bad windows update. I'll most likely do a clean install of windows and see if that helps. If not then I'll be back, heh.
  7. Here are the log files. I noticed a high disk usage from MB and posted a screenshot. I also did a complete reinstall of MB and nothing seemed to change. mbst-grab-results.zip
  8. I was cleaning up a friends laptop after a windows update and noticed Malwarebytes taking a very long time to finish scanning. I ran a full scan with rootkits checked and shes on windows 10 v1809. AVG is the only other AV active but I tried doing a scan with it disabled and got the same results. She has a 1TB hard drive with out 450 gigs of it in use. The scan goes pretty fast until it reaches the heuristics analysis then at about 280,000-300,000 files scan it slows down dramatically. I let it scan over night for about 12 hours and it still didn't finish. I have a similar laptop and run the sa
