  1. Great Thanks. Good to know backup program is not infected :) Thanks, I take it FPs are false positives? If you meant update MWB? I did that, then removed the files from quarantine. I have attached the MWB log and zips of the actual files. When I tried to email those files to myself, Thunderbird wouldn't do that - said they may have viruses! Let me know if you need more

  4. I use AOMEI Backupper v5.3.0. It has been installed for some time. I did do a backup/restore a few weeks ago. Otherwise I backup on an infrequent basis (data is on cloud) Today, during a normal scan, Malwarebytes (v4.3.0) reported two issues. I chose to put these in quarantine. The files were in the AOMEI folder in Windows programfiles(x86). Copy of quarantine is attached. This has never happened before. Has something changed in Malwarebytes? With these files in quarantine, will AOMEI now no longer work? That would mean I have no backups? I am naturally concerned and need a plan on what to do next to ensure system is backed up.
  5. Years ago, MS abandoned parts of WSE. We used to use Windows Live Mail. Surprised that the virus protection part still works. In any event, support for it supposedly end for individual users in a few weeks. For corporate users with paid licenses, still up in the air, it seems. https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/18614/windows-essentials. And then there are reports that MS might not end MSE updates?? But regardless, life is near end. https://www.techradar.com/news/microsoft-is-killing-off-windows-7-but-microsoft-security-essentials-lives-on I look after a neighbors computer - he is 93. We decided to leave him on Win7 with MWB Premium as only protection. He has outlived his Windows 7 box!
  6. This thread seems to be developing a life of it's own Good advice. I have been around this stuff from Day 1. Never have had a virus on any of our computers. On Win7, I originally had WSE plus MWB but since MS dropped WSE support and MWB was upgraded, I have just used MWB Premium. (never did use Defender on Win7). On browser, I do use Ublock Origin instead of Adblock+. When dodgy emails appear, I always look at the source using CTRL U on Thunderbird. Usually easy enought to see from headers when it should be deleted. Anyway, we are off subject. My main concern was that Windows 10 upgrade from Windows does not transfer MWB licence seamlessly. And that it seems tied to one OS rather than the computer. Will have to get to that eventually if I start using win10 as main OS.
  7. Ok thanks. Will likely continue using Win7 as main OS for now along with MWB. I have other issues with Win10 that I will work on when I can. Not sure how Defender compares with MWB, but at least there will be some protection.
  8. I checked the dpi settings. I had a while back increased the setting from 150% to 157%. Had a reason at the time, but can't recall why. At 150%, the MWB screen is less than 1/2 the width of my screen. At 157% it is almost the full width and the top and bottom are cut off. Other program windows seem to scale proportionally. Something about MWB window sizing?
  9. Thanks for the speedy reply. When I did the upgrade, I did it without my backup Win 7 in the computer. So basically, the upgrade did not install a licensed version of MWB. I imagine many users will have this problem when doing a Win 7 upgrade. Right now, the W10 upgrade has also messed up my document files - There seem to be multiple versions of the same files in different places. That is not a MWB issue but I can only spend so much time at this. I am likely to just go back to using Win7. I may eventually have to do a clean Win10 install, but I suppose that will also likely create a MWB license issue. Regarding the MWB screen size issue. I see that this now also occurs in Windows 7. It never used to. I will try the DPI etc, but that should not be necessary - everything else works normally. The screen doesn't fit and cannot be dragged from edges or corners to make smaller. Maximizing, if possible would only resulyt in more being cut off. This is a 1980x1080 laptop screen.
  10. Today, I did an upgrade to Win10 from Win7 (not a clean install) I have the Premium lifetime version of MWB. MWB is there, but license is not activated. When I open MWB, the screen that comes up is too large - top and bottom are cut off. What I can see says that nothing is activated. My windows 7 backup is on same computer, but it is not running. I tried going back to it (dual booting) and MWB is functioning there. How do I get MWB to be functional on Win10?
  11. Having same problem, Mainly Dropbox, but did also see svchost Port 17500
  12. Well I tries to do a W2K repair with an SP4 update CD. Wewll it overwrote my previous installation completely along with all my files & data. Luckily I have thse backed up. But, I guess I won't be trying Malware again - Just not worth the risk of having the same thing happen again \
  13. In doing a search I found someone else had almost the identical problem: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?s...ost&p=40893 But he was fortunate that by going back to last known good configuration in Safe Mode, his system booted. Mine will not. I should mention that I had not done anything but run Malware on this computer this morning. Problem occurred whn asked to reboot. Prior to that it had booted normally.
  14. On my desktop computer that runs Windows 2000 Professional (I have some old applications that need it!), I decided to install and run Malwarebytes. (mbam). It installed and then ran finding one trojan. It asked if I wanted it fixed and I said yes. Trojan was associated with freezip.exe. mbam_log_2011_01_01__10_00_55_.txt But now when I attempt to boot, I get a BSOD containing: STOP 0x00000CE (0xEB6A30BC, 0x000000, 0xEB6A30BC, 0x000000) DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATIONS This driver may be at fault :VIAAGP1.SYS ** Address: EB6A30BC base at EB6A0000, Datestamp 00000000 - viaagp1.sys ** Address: EB6A30BC base at EB6A0000, Datestamp 00000000 - viaagp1.sys etc. This happens well into the W2K splash screen and does it even if I try and boot into safe mode, regardless of which option I choose. This machine has two drives so I can choose to boot XP off other drive from BIOS and that is how I accessed the above attachment. No problems booting XP and current hardware and BIOS settings. Any suggestions on how to recover W2K? Having had this problem, I am hesitant to install Malwarebytes on XP or my laptop.
