  1. Why malwarebytes Premium can't detect Eicar test

    March 6, 2015 in General Chat @ David; Please note the date of the OP's question. It may not be currently related .....
  2. Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

    Thank You John.L.Galt, You have added a bit more information than was openly offered, and makes greater reading in this form (no personal offense AdvancedSetup). I find the more simple and often extended these items are presented to us, the better we all can understand the basic facts.. I will admit that because you seemed to 'open' the subject a bit more I will be spending a bit more time reading these articles. Even though as mentioned in articles, (paraphrased to..) "it may rarely affect a private user, but the business / commercial sector (no matter how big or small) will (could) be the main targets". Here is the market for us, and Antivirus companies to head towards, when they say "We are well protected with our own basic Antivirus / Antimalware programs" , but they may not be covered for these types of intrusions. Yahoo (and a few others) found out the hard way, as we know. ("the following article") left me feeling a bit short on what I was looking for in the first instance. But once opened it actually has meaning and is a good topic. Or it could be that the reply answered a lot more of what a basic user / part time helper was looking for. Again, Thanks All.
  3. Meltdown and Spectre Vulnerabilities

    Just saying, These "infections" all seem to be from Development Sources, and I have been looking to find any 'In the Wild' instances. Do you think these are not items that will be found in the wild, or has the team actually ever found one ? I am yet to find one, but with AMD / Intel / and ATI processors, I did research them and these companies all say these have not been found in the Wild, like all other 'Infections', merely Work Bench 'possibilities'. This is like Jave and other updates where we say to uninstall older versions as they May be open to attack, but we do not usually show instances ? Only an opinion and a question..
  4. Odd email on private server, Not Yahoo

    Yes David, It can be deleted, but I just wanted to show you first. Thanks Mate.

(actually disputed at this time, to "might be 30 Seconds, if not active) A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second. Not sure about the builders measurement of a Poofteenth, (said to be about 1/128th of an inch) A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes. A snail can sleep for three years. Al Capone's business card said he was a used furniture dealer. All 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial On the back of the $5 bill. Almonds are a member of the peach family.

Butterflies taste with their feet. (Not standing on that again) Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds. Dogs only have about 10. "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "MT". February 1865 is the only month in recorded history not to have a full moon. In the last 4,000 years, no new animals have been domesticated. If the population of China walked past you, in single file, the line Would never end because of the rate of reproduction. If you are an average American, in your whole life, you will spend An average of 6 months waiting at red lights. It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Leonardo Da Vinci invented the scissors. (Did not think he was Jewish ) Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable. No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple. Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and Ears never stop growing. Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated. "Stewardesses" is the longest word typed with only the left hand and "lollipop" with your right.

The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and A chocolate bar melted in his pocket.

Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur. TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only On one row of the keyboard. Winston Churchill was born in a ladies' room during a dance. Women blink nearly twice as much as men. Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks; Otherwise it will digest itself. There, now you know (Almost) everything ! (According to Virgil)..
  8. Thanks Firefox and Porthos This is how I was going to leave it for now, even though Some Admins, and The Boss have said it will be OK to run without A/Virus. Will catch you all later .
  9. Hello All, My Windows 7.1 Toshiba Laptop runs Mbytes Premium version, now 3.1.2 at last check, and I still keep Windows Defender / Ex MSE beside it. I am staggering their scans so that Defender only has one scan early AM, but Mbytes has 2 scans (about noon and evening). Yes, I am aware that you now say this is not "required", however it was Defender that caught the last 2 Major infections (one a Trojan plus the Flexit CCleaner infection) while Mbytes only caught any smaller events and I went through the processes of cleaning it fully. I do not have those in quarantine any more, as I believed it was better to remove them during full cleaning. The simple question is the title of this post "Is it OK to run Mbytes and still keep Win Defender", and now all other active or inactive scanners are removed and what are your current views on this. Thank You

  11. Some Linguistics for David to follow ; In the past week, Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank looks to have gone belly up, and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Last week it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended today after they nosedived. Furthermore , 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop, and analysts report there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank (where it is feared staff may get a raw deal).
  12. USA - Natural Born Citizen

    Not one to miss an opportunity to add to a post (even if it is a bit belated). Sorry but I was on a "well earned" South Pacific cruise for a while and have missed updating my topics. Based on the above basic requirements of being a politician ... A local noted that in Australia, the story involves an Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman, who were all Australian politicians.

  14. After the operation

    A patient awakened after a serious operation only to find herself in a room with all the blinds drawn. Why are all the blinds closed?" she asked her doctor. Well, the surgeon responded, "They're fighting a huge fire across the street, and we didn't want you to wake up and think the operation had failed."
  15. Hi MAM (long time since I posted to you), For both .. AppData\Local\Temp\DMR (Adware.ChinAd) and ... Local\Temp\DMR\alfyepuzwvowsynu.dat (Adware.ChinAd) Run updated AdwCleaner, then download and run Temp File Cleaner TFC By Old Timer as administrator. It seems this is just Adware not Rootkit . Then run a standard Malwarebytes Scan to check, and it should not be there. The same items appear on Bleeping Computer scans and other forums. Regards .. If exile360 or AdvancedSetup offer other advice, listen to them
