  1. Hahaha... love this. On another forum, a member shared something similar so here goes. Maybe your co-worker knows about them... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIKqgE4BwAY
  2. Got it, thanks. I had a brief popup that some guards were disabled this morning, but they came back up a second or two after, so no intervention on my part needed.
  3. This package installed on mine a few days ago. I had been having nagging problems recently with 2 guards disabling out of the blue, requiring a program shutdown and restart to get them back. It did this every other day, no trigger that I could identify. I haven't had a problem in a few days now, with v1.0.418 Fingers crossed..
  4. Thanks, I wasn't aware. Just installed it a few hours ago, hoping it continues to be as stable on my machine as the Beta. So far so good though.
  5. Almost 10 days on 3.5 Beta, after uninstalling 3.4.5 because of multiple problems, I can say the Beta has given me my old computer back. No more system problems (they were getting severe...). I had even uninstalled my antivirus prior to going Beta, thinking it was somehow competing with 3.4.5 and causing problems. Even with the AV back on now alongside 3.5 Beta, all is running fast and stable. Hopefully whatever caused these problems, to me and to quite a few others it seems, won't show up in future builds. Keep up the good work team...
  6. Guess this topic is fine for what I have to say. I installed the 3.5 Beta last night, because of somewhat serious ongoing problems with v3.4.5 Premium on W7 x64. It started with a couple protections refusing to activate, then generalized system slowdowns with very long shutdowns, difficult user session log outs (explorer and taskhost hanging...) and finally a BSOD yesterday on reboot (though no damage). Now with this Beta, my system is happy again.
  7. Guess I need to go post in the Beta forum, but I'll update here first. Almost 24 hours on the 3.5 Beta, and my system runs so much better than it has for the past few weeks. All seems normal now. I'll come back here only if problems creep up. For me, right now, 3.4.5 is history. Thanks for the tips everyone.
  8. This is just my personal suggestion : try the Beta (3.5). I've only had it installed for 12 hours, but my system is stable and fast. Funny how I now realize I have my computer back, having dealt with lagging and bizarre system behavior for weeks...
  9. Task Manager > Show all processes > end MBAMService.exe then quit MBAM. Restart from All Programs. Maybe you should try the Beta.
  10. @GavinP : it could be. On mine I noticed it especially when restarting or shutting down the computer, as it would take a lot longer, with Explorer and TaskHost not wanting to close. So an update on my situation : things were going well (fast) last night after disabling Ransomware protection, until I attempted a reboot. I got the Chkdsk / disk integrity window (formerly known as BSOD), had to perform chkdsk which repaired or deleted a few files (I forget), then all was Ok. So next I installed the Beta... Computer has been On since, smooth adn fast so far, no chkdsk on reboot. I'll update later today.
  11. Thank you sir ! I'll monitor the situation and install the Beta if necessary. And I'll keep you posted if I do Cheers,
  12. Have been reading a few more topics on this problem. @exile360 : do you think I'd be a good candidate for the Beta ? If so, does it activate with my current licence and will it upgrade to the official 3.5 on its own ? I'll give this time, with ransomware protection disabled, but I have a feeling it won't stay *normal* for very long... Thanks...
  13. Ok, too early to tell, but with Ransomware protection Off, things are back to normal. For now anyway. Will update if there are changes. One thing I should mention, just in case it could be a factor : I do have Macrium Reflect Home version 7 (paid), which has its own ransomware protection scheme built-in, though I have no idea how they go about it but it seems they protect their own backup files, not the system per se. I've had this version for many-many months now, never a problem. So I'm not *that worried* about having MBAM ransomware protection Off, because I'm covered by Reflect (I hope). I use their home version to be able to do incremental backups, which are great, and ransomware protection was just a bonus.
  14. I've been having similar problems lately. Premium version on Windows 7 x64 (relatively fast desktop computer). It all started after the last build auto update. First signs were terribly long Windows shutdowns (minutes, when usually 15 seconds), very long user account logouts and, eventually many-many FireFox crashes after stopping to respond. Just after the MBAM update I also updated the free Panda AV I have (newer build) so I thought this was the problem. I uninstalled it, things seemed better, so I installed the free Kaspersky. Things started to deteriorate soon after. Uninstalled Kaspersky, things were a bit better (I think), then I uninstalled MBAM a few days ago (regular uninstall method), machine was as fast as new again. Re-installed, and things were good for a day, maybe. Today, back to system lagging, FireFox crashing and stopping MBAMService cures it. Haven't tried disabling Ransomware, will do that now. No other AV installed except Windows Defender. A little worried because this doesn't seem widespread, so probably not an easy t-shoot.
