  1. Thank you very much for the reply, exile360, it was a delight to read. I literally laughed out loud to hear there is a competitor's product with an inescapable trial mode (particularly given the potential for the security functionality of competitor's products to not play well together). All hail Malwarebytes, what a priceless treasure for the world!
  2. @Jekko I've now confirmed (on my other, Win7 PC) that if I switch to launching MWB using the "elevated task schedule" method (#4 at that URL, "The Task Scheduler Trick"), the trial deactivates perfectly. Sweet! @exile360 Ah yes, I see it is quite proper for a protection downgrade to require the highest priviledges. Please forgive me, I do understand the motivation a software developer would have to not provide a trial-free version (and I warmly support this decision if it is the only way Malwarebytes can survive), but this hurdle you both guided me over in disabling
  3. My user account is the only one/the administrator. But I see that if I launch MWB "as admin" the issue is resolved. Thank you very much for your assistance, Jekko!! To avoid a UAC prompt MWB is already set to run elevated, but it seems the method I used (the "RunAsInvoker" method) is no longer working with the new MWB version; I plan to switch to the more reliably robust ""elevated task schedule" method of avoiding a UAC prompt).
  4. Attached are the check results for my 2 PCs. I believe they are not infected. I very much appreciate your help! mb-check-results(8.1).zip mb-check-results(Win7).zip
  5. Thank you very much for your reply, Jekko! When I click deactivate I get an are you sure dialog on which I click ok. Sorry I didn't run the scantool or the check; it didn't occur to me that this issue on a pair of PC's warranted that; I'll get back to you when I can find time to do so on these PCs.
  6. Deactivate Premium Trial not working. I followed the directions on https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-1033 but the program still says it's the Premium Trial. mb3-setup-consumer- on both my 32bit Win7 and 32bit Win8.1 PCs And honestly, I'm not happy to not have a trial-free version to install to avoid the need to deactivate.
  7. SetupImgBurn_2.5.5.0.exe in scan results as PUP.Optional.Ask.Toolbar (optional toolbars are malware?) 1 of 46 at https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/e4ed0f746591491a8cc08d62bb6961a1f2c31bc5e5789b20a44d1a4ab557ff67/analysis/ MBAM-log-2013-07-28 (10-41-49).txt
  8. p.s. it's never been a positive in all the years I've used and loved Malwarebytes, until today.
  9. I've been using this for years; I think and heard it's a great tool; perhaps it's only called malware because it changes startup items for the user. https://www.virustot...6e73f/analysis/ 2 of 47 http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml log and file attached MBAM-log-2013-06-03 (11-58-33).txt StartupCPL_EXE.zip
  10. Windows component explorer.exe (file dated 14April2008) identified as malware in both C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache and C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 Clean (0/42) Virustotal scan https://www.virustotal.com/file/1e675cb7df214172f7eb0497f7275556038a0d09c6e5a3e6862c5e26885ef455/analysis/ explorer.exe.zip mbam-log-2012-07-17 (13-43-38).txt
  11. Bingo! No items are detected that way. My only question now is, will I need to do this until an updated version is released, or it there a way to avoid the need to do this sooner, please?
  12. this happens on all my Windows XP Pro sp3 computers with free v1.60.0.1800
  13. C:\Program Files\FastStone Image Viewer\fssl.db now scans positive ("Spyware.Banker" per Database Version 4964). support@faststone.org emailed me: "The fssl.db is used in the slideshow builder(output a standalone exe file that can be runned without fs image viewer.) It is in exe format, but it does not contain malware. I am sure this is a false positive. Would you please report it to Malwearebyte?" http://www.virustotal.com/file-scan/report...bfe3-1288186555 does report 1 out of 43 as malware ("Heuristic.BehavesLike.Win32.ModifiedUPX.F!87"). Attached are zipped fssl.db and log. fssl.db.zip mb
