  1. Experienced the same problem with 'Do not block..." as @509SportsDad . Reinstalled MWB 2.2.2 just now and will test. Win7Pro x64, Brave browser w/ brave shields, Nano Adblocker and Defender plus Blur (Abine). Have experienced this in the past; seemed to resolve with new update but has recently come back. BTW, upon installing MWB after removal was asked for email....again. I understand the reason but still find it annoying that it is not an opt-in.
  2. @PeacheaterUK That last post describes my experience.
  3. I should add that this occurs on the latest Firefox version as well as the chromium browser CCleaner [Avast] browser.
  4. Late on Saturday, Jan 25th, I received Browser Guards blocks on the following sites: https://www.schneier.com https://www.oldergeeks.com Earlier in the day and before Saturday I had had no trouble accessing these sites. "do not block this site in the future" can briefly be checked, the screen refreshes, and the checkmark disappears. "I want to continue.." works for this instance but not for accessing sites again later. Temporary fix: Manually add sites to allow list checking ALL of these options: Ads / Trackers, Malware, Scams, PUPs. Did not want to spend the time to pl
  5. Glitter Bomb Trap to Bust Porch Pirates? It’s Back with Awesome Upgrades https://youtu.be/a_TSR_v07m0 Mark Rober creates a non-lethal IED-like device to get revenge on package-stealing porch pirates; see both the device details AND videos of the results. Devilishly ingenious.😂. @10:16 - Watch Rober get his revenge on volunteer who reneged on promise to deploy package and ghosted Rober. It's revenge designed to keep on giving! You don't want to get crosswise with this guy. 😂
  6. I too use Textify. Can confirm just completed MWB scan does NOT identify it as malware when scan yesterday did report it as malware.

  8. @unknownguy I used Secunia PSI and had the same reaction moving from v2 to v3. I have used Patch My PC but found the interface frustrating. In the left pane it lists ALL the applications it covers whether or not they are installed on YOUR computer; updates for your installed software are color coded in red but finding them by scrolling in this long list is a pain. The right pane lists only your installed software, color coded to show new updates. Unfortunately, many listings here only show the CURRENT version number not the new version number forcing you to search through the left pane li
  9. @exile360 Thanks for your detailed reply. I take your point about MWB acquiring experts in software updating applications and using a modular development process. Certainly, the complexity is in the software update module alone rather than the entire MWB product. I assume that one initial development decision is whether to limit the update component to alerting the MWB user of available application updates or to offer installation from within MWB. Another choice is how do you streamline keeping track of new updates [and separating them from beta releases]. At least some of the cost w
  10. I strongly oppose integrating a software update checker into MWB. MWB should remain focused on its core mission of malware detection, prevention and removal. Adding an update checker creates unnecessary complexity, added cost, and slows development. Moreover, with this addition MWB moves toward becoming bloatware. BTW, I feel the same way about integrating AdwCleaner and Windows Firewall Control into MWB; create links in MWB to the other two but keep them as separate programs. I do not understand the need for automatic update checking. I use Software Update Monitor [SUMo, lite=free v
  11. Well said. MWB is a security application not a productivity application. As such it needs to do its job in the background and not become a distraction. When the user needs to interact with it, MWB's screens or popups should communicate clearly the reason for the alert and the actions [options] available or the current status of any activity and database update status. In v3.x the use of recognizable color-coding [green, orange, red] and recognizable graphic elements [ checkmark, exclamation mark, and stop sign] quickly signaled current status information even before the user read the acco
  12. @Suitiepie I like it. Great first start. Under System Status: Last Update - consider adding system time of last update. Helpful for those users who reported false positive and have been advised it will be white listed in next update.
  13. @Gt-truth FYI, Are you familiar with https://www.askwoody.com/ ? If not: It now incorporates the old Windows Secrets [Brian Livingston] site and newsletter. ♦️Suggest you read the FAQ for overview of site and then use the Search The Lounge to look for " Controlling When Windows 10 Updates " or " how do i block the 1903 feature update from installing ".♦️ Hope this helps Carson Disclaimer: I am a paid subscriber but otherwise not connected with the AskWoody site operation.
  14. Regarding displaying Last Scan and Last [Signature] update/download: While sympathetic to users' wish to display this information on the Dashboard/Main Screen exile360 reasonably asks us to make a case [to MWB developers] for including this information. Although I was aware that MWB always checks for updates before any scan and also regularly [default = every 60 minutes] I still asked that they be included on the Dashboard. Now I'll try to make the case why. In a way the MWB Dashboard is similar to the dashboard in your automobile. If well-designed it provides important informa
