  1. Same problem here. In-app update from Premium about 10 hours ago. Windows 7 HP SP1 x64. Everything was OK at first. I was surfing Windows images for wallpaper of Phoebe Tonkin when I blocked a malicious site alert. And according to the log 2014.10.14.1 to 2014.10.14.2 came in 12 minutes after that. Now Under Detection and Protection, Malicious Website Protection keeps itself at Disabled and moves itself back to it if you set to Enabled. I rebooted to no change. Reactivated license, no change. Considering bobmitch's exerience with a fresh OS and MBAM install, I'll foreg
  2. Not wanting to wait any further for the internal update to appear, I installed 2.0.2 over 2.0.1 on 5/26. Even after a couple of reboots, I report here that the malware exclusions bloat is still occurring.
  3. I understood that. "...these (know issues) have not been addressed in the actual release" is just one customer's way of expressing the same concept.
  4. Thanks for the fast reply! I was wondering why you cited RC1 known issues but now I realize these have not been addressed in the actual release. How reassuring it is to know it's only cosmetic. The workaround failed for me; it didn't take too long for the few I had re-created to spawn the unwanted step-children. But at least now I've jumped through the mabam-clean hoop which I should have done in the first place. Cheers!
  5. MBAM 2.0 Premium - Win7x64 In 1.75 Pro I had twelve exclusions. I installed 2.0 Premium and a while later I checked the exclusion and found there were 36, three each of my original exclusions. I cleared those out and manually re-enter the twelve. I have observed these replicataing until now there are 120 items in there, ten each of the original twelve. Along with the other issues I've posted up here and reading of the others, I believe that installing 2.0 over 1.75 was a big mistake. I'm going to try the mbam-clean "solution" and if that doesn't whip 2.0 into acceptable behavior I'm rev
  6. @Galt & exile Thanks for your personal attention. But I failed to post up in #1 as I did in my Windows Photo Viewer won't launch & Workaround topic: "No troubleshooting efforts are solicited...nor can I engage in any at this point in time." Running the original installer from a LUA, or having multiple user accounts logging in, at least one if which is not an administrator account. Neither of these apply to you, do they? They do not. I'm not even sure if those instructions relate to my OP or the "double icon" thing some one thoughtfully posted up in this topic. Don't take it per
  7. No Malwarbytes item in Logon Autoruns found on my system. A registry search returned no keys or values associating MBAM or Malwarebytes with logon. What precisely is the regisrty entry you refer to so I can check again? Thank you.
  8. @Galt Disabling Malware protection = uncheck "Malware Protection" in the tray icon menu. @everyone else not experiencing the issue I posted up in case any others observing the same behavior and searching this forum (and eventually google, etc.) might find a workaround. Cheers.
  9. MBAM Premium v2 - Win7x64 I have maintained the default Windows Photo Viewer to open and display image files (jpg, etc.) when selected from within Explorer. Ever since MBAM v2.0, selecting an image file (double-clicking or left-click > Preview) results in a busy (spinning) mouse pointer until the Explorer window is closed. Disabling Malware Protection allows the file to Preview in Windows Photo Viewer. Re-enabling Malware Protection returns the behavior described in the previous paragraph. Adding PhotoViewer.dll to Malware Exclusions resolves the issue. This is posted up as a report
  10. MBAM 2 Premium in Win7x64 In Advanced Settings, I have all Advanced Options unchecked. Yet when I start Windows (power-on or restart) I get a warning from MBAM that I need to fix protection. I fix it and MABAM is started. How is it a disabled "Start Malwarebytes Anti-Malware with Windows" means "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware starts with Windows"?
  11. Not having used or followed the v2.0 beta/RC process, I've read here that the update notifications isn't working and will be fixed eventually. But I'm not wild about the 3-15 seconds range. I'd like to propose an option returning to the previous behavior in which the notification persists until the user closes it manually or have it fade away upon workstation activity as it did in the previous version. I often step away from the PC for a lengthy period and it's reassuring upon return to see that updates have occurred as well as seeing it working while I'm working. Thank you!
  12. Yep. Disabling self-protection let me rename the desktop shortcut and move the Start menu folder to another location. And I re-enabled it 'cause it works! Cheers.
  13. I noticed the same thing - self-protection protects everything MBAM (which is good) even to the point of not being able to rename the shortcut or moving or renaming the Start menu item. Turning off the self-protection returned control of those items to me, without reboot, unlike for this user wherein the issue persisted, even after a reboot. Possibly because I don't use UAC at all and my account is an Admin?? Good luck.
  14. On one Win7x64 system I run under an Admin account, I have v2.0 Premium configured as "Enable self-protection module." I cannot rename or remove the MBAM Destop shortcut nor can I move/edit/move the MBAM Startup Menu item. I wonder if that's what he's referring to? I haven't noticed any permissions anomolies otherwise. Yet. I just did the upgrade today. I haven't tried yet to disable that module.
