  1. Sorry, I am using a PC with Win10 Home 64 bit ver 1903 build 18362.418. MBAM Premium Update pkg 10.14179 Component pkg 1.0.690 Sorry.
  2. I cannot get Windows Defender to stay on even though I turned off the "Always register malwarebyte in the Windows Security Center and closed out and rebooted. When I click to turn on Defender to do periodic scanning in Windows Virus @ Threat Protection and then click Yes when I get the notification to allow it and it immediately switches the 'periodic scanning' option back to off. Yes, I even turned the PC off, rebooted and checked to make sure the MBAM option to 'Register' was still turned OFF and went back to Windows Security Center and tried it again. No luck. I cannot get Defender to
  3. I just turned on the Avast Web Protection and everything is working properly so far, so it seems I guess it was a MBAM problem after all, as most of us thought. But THANKS for fixing it. Kudos!!!! Buffalo
  4. Well, it was most likely something that MBAM changed to cause the problem. Might not be your fault, but if you revert back to the way it was before the problem started and then WAIT until you get it figured out, no matter whose fault it was.is) that would be beneficial to those of us with that problem. Thanks, PS: Where's Diesel when you need him? :)
  5. I just tried that "disabling HTTPS scanning and it didn't help.I am using "weather.com" as my test URL. I tested on different browsers. I also unchecked everything in there except the "Enable Web Scanning" box and it still didn't work. I then unchecked EVERY BOX in the Web Shield customize page and closed out and it still did not work. But when I turned Web Shield to OFF everything worked. Unchecked all and it didn't help BUT turning Web Shield itself to OFF does. Must be another component in there you can't turn off or on. Hopefully MBAM experts will figure it out shortly
  6. I tried it with all Avast shields disabled several days ago and it didn't help. Today I tried it with all Avast shields disabled and also with just the Avast web shield disabled and it worked. I don't know why it didn't work earlier when I disabled the Avast shields but it does now. Perhaps operator error. So far so good. Now I have to decide which 'web shield' I should use. Thanks, Buffalo
  7. Why all the focus on Eset? I don't use it and I have the same problem as the others. Yes, even turned Avast protection OFF and the problem was still there. I turned of SAS paid, WinPatrol pd and the same problem. So, it is not just an Eset problem,or so it seems. It appears to be a MBAM problem. It started on mine several days ago when Comcast had that major problem and I just thought it was their fault and never suspected anything else until I started searching and experimenting. So, get off that single minded Eset cause, IMHO. If you actually think my sending in som
  8. All three are checked. You guys sound like Comcast telling you to 'reset' your modem, check your cable connections etc instead of actually acknowledging the problem. Oh, sorry (after you wasted 2 hrs of my time) the problem was at our end, not yours. Enjoy your day!! Sorry, couldn't resist. I do run Win 10 Home 64 bit with the latest updates. 4 different browsers and ALL have the SAME exact problem. C'mon. ?
  9. Correction: https://malwarebytes.com DID work with Web Protection ON. But, without adding the https:// it would not. https://speedtest.net did NOT work with Web Protection ON nor any variation of that URL.(http, www. etc). Is it easy to just discontinue BETA and only uninstall and reinstall MBAM Premium or will it still be messed up? Do you have to use the MBAM uninstall tool? Thanks,
  10. I also have been having connections for the last 3 days or so. Hell, I cannot even connect to my router with with web protection turned on. I do not use ESET or extra ad blockers. Finally this AM I diagnosed it to MBAM web protection. I do use Avast Free. Hell, I thought it was a Comcast problem because it happened around the same time Comcast had (still has) some major internet problems due to cable damage or similar. Yes, I did suspend Avast Protection and it made no difference. I also turned off my SuperAntiSpyware, no difference. I also turned off WinPatrol, no diff
  11. Disabling Fast Start has corrected the problem so far. It (System Tray Icon) has worked without a hitch since I did it last week. Thanks, Buffalo
  12. Worked fine again this am at initial bootup. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks, Buffalo
  13. I also noted that when MBAM doesn't show in the system tray, the two MBAM entries in Task Manager are Malwarebytes Service and Malwarebytes 32 bit. When MBAM actually shows up in the System Tray, the two MBAM entries in Task Manager are Malwarebytes Service and Malwarebytes Tray Application. I just changed the Fast Start option in Win10 to not and clicked Save Settings (didn't do that the first time) and Shut down and when I restarted, MBAM showed up in the System Tray. Hopefully this will continue. Again, this problem started after I switched from a HDD to a SSD
  14. I have the same problem as others upon a cold boot. The MBAM tray icon is missing and it is not listed in the Task Manager. This happens around 9 in 10 times upon first bootup. I do have MBAM premium. Ver 1.0.374 Update pkg ver 1.0.5510. I am running Win10 Home 64bit ver 1803 17134.112 If I reboot, it will show the tray icon almost every time. This has only happened since I switched to a SSD HD instead of my previous HDD. Could the problem be the much faster bootup with the SSD??? The system tray problem started AFTER I switched to the SSD several months ago, BUT, I a
  15. OK, thanks. I thought my question was pretty simple regarding VirusTotal and my MBAM, but I will try to get to the proper forum. Thanks for the links. Buffalo
  16. Once again, why doesn't the MBAM that VirusTotal.com uses not find a problem with the n1.smartyads.com URL when the MBAM I have on my computer does find a problem? If this is not the proper forum to address this issue, please point me to the one that does. I am running program ver: 2015.0.14.4 on a Win7HP sp1 64bit desktop. Thanks,
  17. Why doesn't the MBAM that VirusTotal.com uses hit on it? Mine does. Also this is marked as 'outgoing' from the browser .exe? Thanks for any clarifications. Buffalo PS: the previous response was just a 'canned' response that didn't address my question.
  18. I just tried FF 41.0,1 and it is the same here, so 'perhaps' it is a false positive. I also am running the free MBAE program in real time. Hopefully you guys can check out if the n1.smartyads and us-w-smartyads sites are bad or not. Lots of hits talking about smartyads in Internet searches, All bad.!! I will not add it as an exclusion until I hear further as I see no benefit to doing so and perhaps harm. Thanks, Buffalo
  19. I keep getting this same warning while using the Pale Moon browser: Outbound and while I am using the Pale Moon 32 bit browser on Win 7 HP SP1 64bit. 8 times in under a minute 2 of the next: n1.smartyads.com outgoing from palemoon.exe Domain, Domain, 6 of the next: us-w-node1-smartyads.com outgoing from palemoon.exe Domain, I submitted both of the above to virustotal.com and they both came up clean. Strange, even with the MBAM scan that virustotal.com uses. Why clean on that scan and not on the MBAM Pro I am using. Ver: Database version: 2015.1
  20. OK, I unchecked the delay startup box and also removed the task to update upon startup. No problems since yesterday morning. I think all is good. No need to start a new thread for my concerns. Thanks, Buffalo
  21. No problem booting up this am and none yesterday after the second reboot. I also have the box checked for "Delay Protection at Startup" set to 30 sec and MBAM is set to check for updates on 'System start' and also every 3 hrs. If the problem shows up several more times, I will do the 'Clean Removal' and reinstall. I am the only User on this desktop and I shut the machine off every night. Overall, I like the new version. Thanks, Buffalo
  22. I had that error message a few times in the last wk or s0 upon 1st bootup (never at any other time) and it fixed itself. I usually reboot the computer to fix it. Then today it again came up at 1st bootup and it said to restart the computer and run a scan. I did that and upon reboot, I received the message "Unable to load Anti-rootkit Driver Error code 20025." It asked if I wanted to continue the scan and I selected NO. Then the screen went black. I opened Task Manager (ctrl-alt-del) and used it to reboot the Desktop Computer (Win7 HP SP-1 64 bit). When it rebooted, everything was back to nor
  23. I just remembered that I let Adobe Flash do an update that morning also. Not sure if it is related or not. Adobe Flash gave a notification that an update was available and I decided to let it update. It updated with no options, that I could see, Perhaps that updated put something else on my computer. I run MBAM Pro in realtime and I run the Free Avast with SAS on demand and I also run the pro version of WinPatrol. All scans by the aformentioned programs have turned up negative. Buffalo
  24. Yesterday afternoon 15Apr2015, I also had at least 5 repeated notifications about the same ip addy and URL. It was outgoing but I didn't copy where it was coming from (I was on FF 37.0.1 and Win7 HP SP1 64bit desktop) . I believe it was an 'outgoing' attempt. Is there somewhere I can find that message in MBAM, as I believe it must be recorded somewhere. Thanks,
  25. Looking forward to the new version. Thank you again for the prompt reply and the testing and resulting action. Buffalo
