You can edit your own posts but there is a time limit until you become an Honorary Member after 50 posts I believe.
Thanks Yokenny1, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
Only 37 more to go.
There is, it's on the lower right of your post, it presents 2 options: Full Edit and Quick Edit.I used quick edit to add this.NICE!
I used quick edit to add this.
I thought there should be one next to the quote.
How strange...It's not there.
What to do?
Why isn't there an edit button for your own posts here on the forum?
Did I do that?

This is a post for a member from another forum.
Therefore I can't submit a log or upload of this possible false positive.
I thought you might like to see it anyway.

Let me know if these are fixed
That fixed all four FP's for me, and my scan time is back to normal.

My brother has three user accounts on his computer.
Do I just scan his account, or all accounts individually?
My niece has a password on her account. Will this affect the scan by denying access to files?
Thanks in advance!

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware uses Regedit to quarantine items from the registry. This was a sort of hack that we threw together and just left since it was working so well. I plan to change that in an upcoming release.The protection module stops every executable from starting, interrogates it, and releases it if it is deemed clean to the database. We plan on adding multiple heuristics to the protection module soon.

Hey RubbeR DuckY,
I think you have a solid application with great potential.
Thanks for the reply.

I've used MBAM since it came out of Beta. I like the ease of use, and the speed of scanning. It found 4 - Adware.Hotbar in The Desktop Weather Channel program.
I uninstalled the Desktop Weather program and rescanned with MBAM. It found two entries leftover after using Revo Uninstaller in the advanced mode.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Weather Services (Adware.Hotbar) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Cpls\wxfw.dll (Adware.Hotbar) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
I have a host intrusion prevention system that alerted me that MBAM asked to run regedit.exe. I have other programs that edit the registry and don't have permission to use it.
Is there a way for a program to edit the registry other than using regedit.exe?
If so, why does MBAM choose to use regedit.exe?
I guess this would be three questions : Can you tell me more about how the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Protection Module works? I'm thinking of purchasing it, and dropping my HIPS because it pops up to much.
