  1. After uninstalling, If a scan with Defender and Malwarebytes are clean you are good to go since you were already checked out in the Malware section. But remember not all content gained by torrenting will be safe and just by scanning your downloads does not make the downloads safe.
  2. Unless you are using a P2p program you should not see many blocks unless you are possibly infected. I also see less blocks because I use Ublock origin and the Malwarebytes browser guard (FREE) in my Firefox and Chrome browser.
  3. I see website, IP address, inbound or outbound and the process or browser name in my blocks.
  4. That is exactly where I got and not the musketeers. Closet trekkie at your service.
  5. Also here is the new user guide https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3530?lang=en_US&affiliate=&x-source=mb4pchelp
  6. It will in time, however new versions are metered out to users gradually over time, but if you wish to avoid the wait you may open Malwarebytes and navigate to Settings and click on the Install Application Updates button and the new version should be downloaded and offered to you to install or you may download and install it manually from here if you prefer. I hope this helps, and if you have any trouble or there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know. Thanks
  7. At least it can be downloaded with Ninite which removes the adware when installing.
  8. If I was going to torrent I would take a laptop to Starbucks and depending on the location according to all those news reports you might even get to watch a "sideshow" while drinking that over priced coffee.
  9. Stop torrenting would be my best advice. Barring that, qBitorrent is a better choice. Remember if you are downloading copyrighted material depending on your location and ISP. You could get in trouble.
  10. You may turn off the notifications. https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3562
  11. The only other thing that I saw that could interfere with the connection is Internet Download Manager. Uninstall that temporarily.
  12. Please gather and provide logs with the Malwarebytes Support Tool so we can take a closer look at the issues you're experiencing. https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-2396
  13. Some products detect uTorrent either because of heuristics signatures that look for new/unknown threats, and others appear to be detecting it due to the fact that uTorrent has been known to sometimes come bundled with a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) known as OpenCandy. Malwarebytes would block OpenCandy so I'm sure you aren't infected with that PUP, however you can learn more about what OpenCandy is by reviewing the information found here. As for why Malwarebytes blocked uTorrent, this is because uTorrent, and all Bittorrent software, are what are known as Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications meaning it connects to many different servers/IP addresses (this is how files are downloaded through uTorrent) and because of this, sometimes uTorrent will connect to a server that is also known for hosting malicious content. This is because servers/IP addresses are often shared by multiple sites, so while what you are downloading through uTorrent may be perfectly safe, some of the sites hosted on some of the IP addresses that uTorrent connects to may be malicious. Such connections are not a threat however, and you may exclude uTorrent from the Web Protection component in Malwarebytes to stop the blocks from happening without compromising your protection (your web browser and other critical web facing programs will still be fully protected from malicious websites and other malicious content). To do so, add uTorrent.exe to your exclusions using the method described under the Exclude an Application that Connects to the Internet section of this support article. File sharing involves using technology that allows internet users to share files that are housed on their individual computers. Peer-to-peer (P2P) applications, such as those used to share music files, are some of the most common forms of file-sharing technology. However, P2P applications introduce security risks that may put your information or your computer in jeopardy. Risks of File-Sharing Technology I hope this helps, and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

  18. If things do not go well... Please follow the directions from the following article and post back the requested logs and we'll review to assist you. https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-2396 Thank you
  19. You are quoting a 2018 topic. The tools and the information obtained is safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer But if you insist, You can use the support tool to creat a support ticket and send the logs that way. Be sure to re explain your issue because support is separate from this forum.
  20. If you are referring to the system tray, that happens when the program is getting a component update to a new component package. it should go away pretty quick.
  21. Please try uninstalling and reinstalling Malwarebytes for Windows using the Malwarebytes Support tool. Uninstall and reinstall using the Malwarebytes Support Tool https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-2674 Please have lots of patience with the tool. The first phase is a cleanup and does require a Windows Restart. After the Restart, it may take 2 - 3 - 4 minutes till the Support tool screen shows up. Please be patient and have faith. Wait for it, whatever it takes. The 2nd phase is where it offers to do a new Install. Let me know if that clears up the issue or not.
  22. There might be a new solution but with out logs staff cannot investigate and fix the issue.
