  1. Hi

    Potplayer autoupdated itself few days ago.

    I now did a scan with Malwarebytes and it found this (it was in temp folder but I transferred it to another folder so i can copy on a virtual machine)

    I did a full scan with Malwarebytes, it found nothing.

    Then, tried installing the above mentioned .exe (thought that the adware skipped my system because it was an autoupdate), on a virtual machine and there was no adware in the installer for checking/unchecking except for the last step shown below

    Now this OpenCodec has been with PotPlayer for a while, and I don't think that's the culprit.

    I read this but while installing I wasn't asked for McAfee webadvisor or any other similar thing.

    I did a fullscan on the virtual machine, Malwarebytes found nothing.

    Greetings,

    I'm honestly not certain if it does or not, though I do know that it does scan Chrome's preferences for malicious plugins/extensions and the like.  I'll have to check with the team to see if it checks the notifications/allowed list or not and will request that it be added if possible if it turns out that it does not.

    If you have any further suggestions please don't hesitate to let us know.

    Thanks

    Google Chrome had no bad plugins/extensions, I checked them manually too.

    I think it doesn't scan. This is the second time I'm cleaning a computer "infected" with bad sites allowed in Google Chrome notifications and the scans were clean.

    I doubt that MWB and ADW both times missed these. Too bad I didn't remember the sites. If I come across a similar "infection" again, I'll make sure to post it here.


  3. Hi

    So I was called up by my uncle, telling me he had annoying and nasty pop ups when using Google Chrome.

    I used my usual, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner and they came up clean but the ads were still showing up.

    Turns out, in Google Chrome notifications there were bad sites allowed. Removing them from the allowed list got rid off the annoying ads.

    Does Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner scan the notifications part of Google Chrome or not?

  5. I would rather go to Contact us as the main page is used to list Latest News.

    You would rather go to contacts us, then click on Please click here to access our support forums instead of just clicking Forum which in my opinion should be located right where Home | About Us | Products | Contact Us are(top right corner)?

    The new template should be up shortly and we hope this will be a bit more streamlined.

    Any preview or something? :P


  6. Hello

    I always get confused(I'm with many years internet browsing experience!) when I go to malwarebytes homepage because I keep forgeting that the forum link comes up after you click on Contact us.

    I for one think that because of this many people might not find the forum.

    Thus, I'm suggesting you add a direct link to Forum on the homepage.

    Thanks in advance!
