  1. Yes and that is standard Windows behaviour.
  2. The scrollbar on the right-hand side of the scan results window.
  3. Doing that would be pointless. It is not a bug, it is a problem with the design of Malwarebytes, which affects it on every computer it runs on, not just mine. In pretty much every other Windows app, when you click in the space above the bar in the scroll bar, it is the equivalent of pressing the Page Up. If you click below the bar, it's like pressing Page Down. You can test this in your browser on this very webpage. In Malwarebytes, the bar moves to where the mouse cursor is.
  4. That is exactly what I was referring to. The scroll bar should not go to where the mouse pointer is, it should go up or down a page. That is standard Windows behaviour. That doesn't help if there are multiple PUP detections and you want to exclude just some of them.
  5. Thanks for the reply. When you click above or blow the bar in the scrollbar, instead of the usual Windows behaviour of moving up a down page, the bar moves to where the mouse pointer is. The second issue, is that there no way to select threats individually. There no option to be able to select or deselect every file and registry key belonging to a particular threat, other than manually clicking on every individual files and registry key that belongs to a particular threat. This is a serious limitation. Due to the very aggressive detection of PUPs, there are often programs detected, that I don't want to quarantine.
  6. It's a shame that the scroll bar issue, which I was told when the beta of v3 was released, would be fixed, still persists in this new version. It would be nice too, if the promised feature to be able to select individual threats was also implemented, particularly when even rogue antimalware software has this feature. I think these two things, are much more important that a UI redesign.
  7. Are there any plans to fix the scroll bar issue, which I posted about last year? https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/190601-scroll-bar-issue/
  8. Personally, I don't like the new agressive detection of PUPs by Malwarebytes. Whie on one hand, it is possible to whitelist PUPs. On the other hand it is a real hassle to do so, because you can only select or deselect detected files and registry keys one by one, rather than being able to select all items belonging to a PUP or threat at once. I use Advanced SystemCare Pro, Driver Booster and IObit Uninstaller. In my opinion they are all excellent programs, and they are safe to use. I can understand them being detected due to past actions of IObit. But surely, the user interface can be improved to make it easy to ignore items. This has become more of an issue due to the increased detection of PUPs, which has meant that more software that I use is now detected (for example Auslogics Defrag Pro, another program I use, is now also detected).
  9. I'll keep that in mind next time. This was first time I've reported a false positive.
  10. MBAM is incorrectly detecing a scheduled task from Baidu Antivirus as belonging to CrossRider. There is a screenshot of the detection here: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/baidu-antivirus-2013.342629/page-37#post-2448188 I have confirmed this is a false positve: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/baidu-antivirus-2013.342629/page-37#post-2448352 Here are the VirusTotal scan results: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/ec86299456bc8c0fc7ce0966c3d0c7005622f492503853d7d526c320bdc93579/analysis/1421458519/ Roger
  11. I posted this in a replay in another thread, but at the time did not notice it was an old thread so I am reposting my thoughts on the partnership between Malarebytes and ChicaLogic. Personally I think this is very bad news indeed, as in my opinion Chicalogic are a very untrustworthy company, and not one that Malwarebytes would want to be associated with an any way. My reasons for stating the above are as follows: Chicalogic sell a registry cleaner call Chica-PCfix, it is the same as SLOW-PCfighter which is published by SPAMfighter, but of course with a different name and different graphics. I believe that Chicalogic is actually part of SPAMfighter. The issue I have with Chica-PCfix is sadly, as is the case for many registry cleaners - highly misleading claims are used to sell it. For example "Clean out the clutter causing your PC to be slow. Get your PC running like new again within 1-click!" Which of course sounds good - but however the reality is very different. Many windows experts say that registry cleaners are useless and that cleaning the registry is a complete waste of time. Based on my own personal experience with registry cleaners, I can say that only in very rare cases cleaning the registry can lead to increased performance, or can fix errors. It's worth noting that you have to actually purchase Chica-PCfix before you can find any so called registry errors it finds, and even if many thousands of registry errors are found - cleaning them will often not lead to faster PC performance of fixing of problems or errors. So, in other words the claim that their product will "get your PC running like new again within 1-click!" is highly dubious at best. They also make other equally dubious claims on their website. If they were a trustworthy company, they shouldn't make there kinds of outrageous claims in the first place. When I questioned them about this over a year ago I got an unsatisfactory response back. However they did not respond to further emails I sent them. Also, when I started posting on their Facebook page, to draw attention to their questionable business practices they responded by removing the ability for users to post comments on their Facebook page. The following post at Major Geeks may also provide useful reading: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=217876 It is a discussion about the program Registry Reviver which was another (there are many) renamed version of SLOW-PCfighter. Although they have since switched to Systweak to power this registry cleaner it still should provide interesting reading.
