  1. Any way to prevent it from happening for a 4th time this year?
  2. The false positive is back again on Auslogics Disk Defrag Free portable.
  3. http://downloads.auslogics.com/en/disk-defrag/ausdiskdefragportable.exe The false positive is on the portable version of Auslogics' Disk Defrag Free portable. The portable has no installer I use it a lot on Windows based machines to work around a NTFS bug with disk fragmentation (seen disk fragmentation just under 1% cause a 10 keyboard lag. Have also seen disk fragmentation cause a 10 minute delay on being able to click to open the Control Panel. Also gotten a few software installers down from 12 minutes to 5 seconds on over 50 machines with this portable version using the defrag and optimize.)

    Fake FBI email example

    I did report the Gmail account to Google using their web forum: I would like to report a Gmail user who has sent messages that violate the Gmail Program Policies and/or Terms of Use. https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse

    The FBI IC3 site was last updated around the time of Internet Explorer 8 release (based on a if statement for Internet Explorer 7 in the site code)

    That forum will not work as I don't know if there was a victim of this scam (you need victim information, I am not a victim), I have already look at that forum in the past for other fake FBI emails I find the int junk mail (or inbox). I forwarded the email to ESET, Sophos, US CERT, ISC Sans, and a few others (don't have a FBI report email). The email header has a China mail gate.

    FlashPlayer on Windows 8.1

    On Windows 8.1 Flash Player for Internet Explorer is built in (the updates will show in Microsoft Updates (same thing on Windows 10)). Chrome on Windows (& macOS) has Flash Player built in so the "Download for manual installation for Adobe Flash for Chrome ( PPAPI )" will not work with Chrome (it was built into Chrome back in 2010). For Chrome you can put chrome://components/ in the address bar and scroll to Flash Player and click check for update to check manually if there is an update (it will install the update if there is one). When Chrome is updated sometimes Flash Player will also get updated too, but you can still manually trigger a check for updates to the Flash Player built into Chrome. PPAPI is used for all Chromium based browsers (except Chrome for the manual download of Flash Player), Active X is Internet Explorer only, Mozilla is listed as NPAPI.
  9. If Windows 10 is connected to the internet when you start the process it will also grab updates for Windows (tho there maybe a few more updates after the reinstall is done).
  10. The high CPU usage might be from Windows compressing the report before trying to send the report to Microsoft . Checking Reliability Monitor there is an option to view all problems.
  11. Windows Defender has been a part of Windows since Windows Vista (Vista & 7 it was only AntiSpyware) You can manually download Windows Defender definitions here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/definitions it might also fix some bugs (done the fix a few times in the past on other machines where an update got interrupted in the install or something else), after the manual download and run the updated definitions (might take a few minutes to install) then run Microsoft Update to see if there is a newer definitions. For the lag check the free space and check disk fragmentation (I have seen less than 1% on a Windows machine and still have lag with keyboard input (10+ seconds delay after ever key press)). In the Control Panel look at the Security & Maintenance and try a manual run of the maintenance tasks (might take an hour or so). Also turn off some of the Windows GUI animations (since Vista the Windows GUI is a performance hog). Also check for some of the basic driver updates (there might also be a BIOS or UEFI update that might have security updates or fixes for performance issues or BSODs fixes). Also look at Activity Monitor and see if there is a process that has high CPU usage or high disk usage for a long time.
  12. The flash positive is back again on Auslogics Disk Defrag Free portable.
  13. They never added anything to the portable version. The portable is a different installer than the installer that installs Auslogics Disk Defrag Free onto the Windows computer.
  14. https://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/ Scroll down to the Portable version ( http://downloads.auslogics.com/en/disk-defrag/ausdiskdefragportable.exe ) It is a great work around for a defect in the NTFS file system with disk fragmentation. The portable one has no installer and I have used it in at work to change vendor software install times from 12 minutes to 5 seconds. And shave off 3 to 7 minutes off boot time. For friends and family improved boot times from 8 minutes to under 2 minutes and others opening a Windows Explorer Window from 5 minutes to 3 seconds. Malwarebytes is not the only one with the false positive (Trend Micro got the false positive recently too)
