  1. Thanks for your prompt reply. I am attaching the most recent Scan Logs. Please note that the Freerip problem appears to have been solved finally. i did notice that the scan found Chrome artifacts. They may be a hold over from past accidental instals that did not fully uninstall, as i do not use Chrome at all. I will update this thread if the issue resurfaces. Have a great New Year.

  2. Log File Attached Hope this helps AdwCleaner[C0].txt AdwCleaner[C2].txt AdwCleaner[S0].txt AdwCleaner[S1].txt AdwCleaner[C0].txt AdwCleaner[C2].txt AdwCleaner[S0].txt AdwCleaner[S1].txt
  3. I will try to get that for them and post it here. Otherwise, I suspect that it relates to how Freerip is being sold.
  4. Freerip is a standard in the MP3 conversion utility group My copy is licensed under their "Promotion 2012" deal and works as it should normally. The cleaner allows me to uncheck the program but still removes the license and thus lock the Pro version features. My ongoing solution has been to reinsert the license info, which restores all functionality. I cannot offer anything further for a solution to this issue, which has beent he case for a very long time.
  5. Exile360: Thanks for your link to the other thread. It indeed is parallel to what I am seeing. So, I assume that Ignore is an acceptable option considering that I altered the Security Center settings to begin with.
  6. Both our HP Laptop (XP Home) and our Desktop (XP Pro) are fully updated with SP3 and the latest downloads from MBAM. On 3/22 Malrewarebytes found 3 Security Center Registry entries that it says are " Bad" The effect of allowing MBAM to remove them is to change the settings for the XP Firewall to ON. I must note that the only AV I have is Norton Corporate v8.1 and it finds nothing. For that matter Spybot and A-squared find no malicious activity. These machines are used in an environment where they are not prone to attack. Could this be caused by an update that Microsoft has issued that interferes with MBAM? The problem only surfaced after the MBAM update on 3/22. I have taken the 3 items and placed them in the Ignore list for the time being. Suggestions and guidance are most welcome.
  7. I join those who see no real need for a progress bar. It is quite true that such a device is not really useful for the size that it occupies. As to inaccuracy, that is also a good reason. I have seen several other applications that do have a counter. They are fairly accurate and do not require that much additional code to implement (or do they). This user is actually very satisfied with the performance of MBAM and has put it on every machine that my friends have. This program and Spybot S&D are my first line of defense, along with an AV, and so far so good. Keep up the good work developers!
  8. Photos, music and certain other files types are almost never compromised by malware/spyware/etc. With that in mind, you want to run Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D and your anti-virus package on ALL of your drives. Prefer to do this in SAFE mode, btw. I for one have seen rogues return and strongly suggest that you clean your primary drive as noted above and then do a real Format followed by a clean install of XP and your programs. The alternative is to buy a new HDD and load Windows, etc on it and begin anew that way. The latter will assure you that there are no nasties lurking anywhere. Just my experience
  9. The problem was indeed an error on the part of the other program's definition update file. Problem resolved. Meanwhile, I still like Malwarebyte's efficiency and resource usage. Happy Thanksgiving
  10. JeanInMontana: Yes I am aware that this could be the issue. However, I do not have the toolbar or any references to GameFiesta in the Registry or elsewhere on the machine. What is really puzzling is that no other anti-malware program is detecting this. I have submitted the issue to A2 for them to figure out. I do like Malwarebytes a lot more for its speed and its resource usage. Other readers and the author are welcome to reply.
  11. Thanks for the quick reply. The problem apears to be local in nature. When running ASquared it will remove the Icon but nothing more. Keep in mind that Windows XP SP3 Solitaire is a stand alone program within the System32 folder. There is no separate Icon-it is generated for the Desktop when one sets that up under Start Menu or sends it from the application itself.
  12. Hi-I am new to this Forum. Very impressed with the program and a long time IT person as well. Ran a scan using another scanner (A Squared) and it told me that I have a issue with the link in the Title. It relates to Windows Solitaire's Desktop Icon which I set up from the Start Menu. This appears only on this machine. Meantime, malwarebytes does not detect this nor does SpybotS&D. Questions: May I assume that the Heueristic nature of this scanner relates directly to its speed and the lack of a "Deep sscan" routine? Is it possible that the item found is an FP relating to one having visited a site not knowing this could become an issue? I must note the GameFiesta site is real, but I don't use it. Final thoughts-the link is running just fine with other scanners. There are no Registry entries that relate to the site or link. HijackThis shows no entries either. Any ideas?
