  1. So I take it that next time you conduct expected maintenance, knowing that this non-malfunction has taken place, you'll kindly notify your users in advance? That would be the professional way of handling it, and would alleviate a lot of concerns.
  2. Even though I posted two logs as requested, you still need to reproduce the block in order to fix it? MB-Clean removes all of my settings, reverts everything back to default, doesn't it?
  3. Please elaborate... is this a legitimate detection or a false positive?

  6. Malwarebytes tarted blocking smtp.suddenlink.net about 5 days ago with v3.2.2.2018. I had to exclude it. Today I installed 3.3.1 and tried removing the exclusion, but it gets blocked again, so it's excluded again.

  7. I understand that you don't have time, but you did post a rather lengthy response to which I replied. Please be advised that there is absolutely zero anger coming from me. Zero. Just wanted to be clear that there is no "heated" posting coming from me, Ron. And I am at a loss to understand your "he said/she said contest" remark. Don't see any he said/she said anywhere, so let's toss that out. I would appreciate a reply to my question... I think it is a fair one. I'll repeat... --> Here's a simple question... has Malwarebytes ever achieved good results with MRG Effitas? And if so, were you or anyone from Malwarebytes chiming in about the good results being tainted? Or, if the answer is no, Malwarebytes has never achieved good test results from this outfit, then is it, in your opinion, fair for users to question the effectiveness of your software? Thanks
  8. Interesting that you "don't speak for the company" but then you reference using "our product". Whatever. Let's not turn this into a you-know-what-kind-of-a match. I have seen a lot of security program developers get shitty with users who ask questions about test results. And they always claim some version of what you just claimed... the test was tainted. The implication there is what, by the way? That the testing organization doesn't like you, or that you have not paid them their "fee" for giving you high marks? Why exactly would these testers have vendettas against the programs that produce failed results? Here's a simple question... has Malwarebytes ever achieved good results with MRG Effitas? And if so, were you or anyone from Malwarebytes chiming in about the good results being tainted? Or, if the answer is no, Malwarebytes has never achieved good test results from this outfit, then is it, in your opinion, fair for users to question the effectiveness of your software? My chief concerns with MAB3 is that in addition to the poor test performance, I have experienced lots of problems with the software, on machines that are otherwise very stable. Simply put, rather than anxiously looking forward to installing the latest version upgrade, I am very reluctant to upgrade, because with MAB, if it's not one thing, it's another. I've been a user for many years, so I have some history of my own to fallback on with Malwarebytes. Thanks
  9. Why not say what's on your mind instead of invoking two 8 year old threads? An official response to the test results would be preferable to an insinuation.
  10. For the amount of problems it has been causing, a user needs to look at that as well when deciding if its effectiveness is worth keeping it on one's machine. And by problems, I mean quirkiness, protections suddenly not working, upgrades going bad, etc. I also run MBAM alongside of ESET NOD32 AV as a complementary protection, and I will not even consider upgrading until I see a lot fewer issues on this forum. The day may come when I pull MBAM from real-time protection duty and relegate it to simple on-demand scanner status.
  11. I have discovered that the HoeflerText popup only happens when connected via my VPN. I have contacted their support for further assistance. Note to Telos, thank you for your AdwCleaner suggestion. I did run it and there are no infections. Chrome: The “HoeflerText” font wasn’t found scam
  12. Actually, I am not infected. The site I visited is infected, and is using a soc eng method of trying to infect me. I have seen this pop up only on one site. Read about the HoeflerText attack. I want to know how to stop the popups if/when they are encountered on the web. TY
  13. I have encountered this social engineering attack on the web. The first time I saw it, I thought it might be legit, and I started to download (into a Sandboxie-protected folder), but didn't even complete the download, let alone recover the file and execute it. I am now well aware of the attack, but would still like to know how to configure MB3 to block these HoeflerText popups, or, for someone to explain to me why MB3 is not already blocking them?
  14. Excuse me, but these issues are impacting me on a daily basis. Posting by members who "didn't start the thread" is happening all over this forum. Are you responding in this manner to all of them? It is HELPFUL to users to come here and read EVERYONE'S input. It enables us to see exactly how widespread these issues are, as opposed to solitary events happening to a small handful of users. No one is blaming YOU, so no need to take it personal. As a matter of fact, since you are only a volunteer, I am not even addressing you. Staff members wrote the instructions that you linked and that I referenced. That would be bdubrow and celee.
  15. I believe it is fair to reply that these people should have "commenced their analysis" long before the product was released on the unsuspecting user base. If you guys could read your own responses with an objective eye, you'd understand how out of whack this whole process really is... release a new version, tell us how great it is, then hound us to help you fix all the problems. Try this. Doesn't work? Try it again. Doesn't work? Try that. Send us files. Send files again. Help us fix this. Somehow it all got turned around to where we are your unpaid employees.
  16. And then what? Turn it on, then turn it off. After that, what? Should we turn it back on again? Just keep toggling it back and forth, off, on, off, on. For how long? When will a fix be released?
  17. Hello Ron, At this time, is there a Clean Uninstall tool for MB3.0 , in case I need to remove the program from my computers? Even for reinstalling, as has been frequently recommended in these forums, the Clean Removal tool is helpful. TY
  18. Just to let you know, MrDavid, I have started to notice the same sort of sluggishness and freezing since upgrading to MB3 that did not exist previously. I am not asking for any assistance, so I don't wish to start a separate thread. I may end up removing MB3 completely to see if the problems subside. I simply wanted a fellow member and MB3 user to know that others are experiencing some of the same issues. Given this, and some other previously noted concerns, I am generally not too thrilled with MB3. For the first time ever, I have considered removing the program from my computers.
  19. I addressed this question in the second sentence of my original post, Aura. I run another program that handles these duties just fine. So it is not a matter of not wanting additional protection, but one of not wanting two conflicting programs running at the same time. I'm sure you understand the consequences of doing that.
  20. That is a very good request, and it certainly works for me. If they can't chill out on all of the unwanted notifications about how I have the program configured, then give everyone the option to not install certain components. Please.
  21. Difference being that MB3 has added another protection layer, and it is in many cases, one that not everyone wishes to avail themselves of. The fact that even before they added this additional layer, customers were barking, indicates that it would be something that Marcin and his troops might want to consider implementing... a way to turn off the messages that pertain to how a user has configured the program. Like if a user turns the message off a half dozen times, then it stops popping up on reboot, and showing in the GUI dialog, and appearing in the systray icon.
  22. I have chosen to turn Exploit Protection off. I run another program that handles this duty just fine. It would be nice if MB3 did not constantly display an altered systray icon (red triangle overlaid on blue MB icon), along with assorted other nag messages alluding to this protection feature being disabled. These constant warnings make me think something else is wrong, or conversely, maybe something else IS wrong but I have grown so accustomed to seeing these warnings that I ignore them. It's just a setting, and I have chosen to configure the program the way I like it... could you pump the brakes on all the dire warnings, please? Thanks for your consideration.
