  1. My quick scan times are about cut in half on Vista and XP, thank you very much. When I ran update, the database version was updated then version 1.50 was downloaded and installed. After the program update I restarted MBAM and ran update again, the database version was again updated to a later version. It would be nice if MBAM restarted after the program update is complete as I've seen in the past. Thanks for your hard work and dedication.
  2. I appreciate your replies. I will download the fix in your link exile360. She had a DNS changer that needed a delete on reboot. Thank you
  3. My niece recently updated to the free version 1.41. When she boots up her laptop, she gets the UAC popup stating that Malwarebytes has been blocked. This happens every time she boots up her laptop. I know there's a run once entry when a new version is installed. Hers is showing as a current\version\run. Can I just delete the startup entry using Autoruns or should I reinstall? Thanks Edit by Jamin4u for clarity.
  4. I agree with catscomputer that the MBAM team is the best when it comes to response time on false positives. The noticeable improvement with the absence of operating system FP's is the reason I started this topic. I've seen the improvement over the last few version releases. Customer service is the backbone of any business.
  5. Just wanted to point out that I haven't had a false positive in a long.............time. Nice Work!
  6. This update fixed the loading speed and GUI loading problems I was having on my XP System. Thanks!
  7. If all new database versions are tested to ensure that their additions to the database actually do what they expected. Then why do we see false positives like these? HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WS2IFSL (Fake.Driver) C:\WINDOWS\system32\vcredist_x86.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\wextract.exe (Backdoor.Bot) C:\Windows\System32\msconfig.exe (Trojan.Agent) I'm trying to understand the process so I can better explain operating system false positives to the people that I recommend MBAM to. Would some XP or Vista systems have a false positive, and others wouldn't?
  8. Wouldn't testing each new database on various operating systems eliminate false positives on the operating system itself. I understand that you can't have every piece of software out there loaded on each test computer. I'm more interested in the operating system false hits, and wouldn't mind less updates to accommodate more testing.
  9. I knew what it meant because I had to look it up. I like it and may utilize it when I feel cantankerous.
  10. Are you allowed to say words like that on this forum? Just stopped in the special forum, I like the perk of checking out the betas. Thanks for the welcome!
  11. Learn something new everyday. Thanks for not getting
  12. My Bad After double-clicking on the installer, I have HIPS on my firewall that had 2 pop ups in front of the UAC pop up. If I right click and run as admin, the UAC pop up is immediate. Do you know why MBAM's installer doesn't have the shield on the installer? Thanks GT500
  13. Yes, I have UAC enabled. If I start the installer without right clicking and run as admin, the installer doesn't ask for admin rights. Are you saying MBAM doesn't need admin rights on install?
  14. MBAM's installer doesn't have the security shield when downloaded to Vista. Would the program install the same if the installer was not run as administrator?
  15. Database version: 1786 Confirmed fixed

  17. What can I say other than, you are faster than FedEx. Thank you
  18. I wanted to make sure they saw the Registry Data Items Infected: 2. At the time I reported it, I was the only one with this false positive.

  20. Thank you Marcin and Arthur for your time in answering my questions. I think the team does an excellent job of responding to false positives. Please allow me to ask one more question regarding false positives. Does the team use test computers with various operating systems to test each database version before release?
  21. Would it be safe to say that most false positives happen during heuristic scanning?
  22. What safeguards does the MBAM team use to avoid a critical Windows component being flagged?
  23. You could undo the system restore and run the system file checker. sfc /scannow Are you sure your system is clean?
  24. I hope you went easy on him.
  25. System restore monitors .exe files. I would do a restore to the point just before msconfig.exe was removed.
