  1. Hello, No one has touched on the fact that Windows states that you are still using the McAfee Firewall... You may still have remnants of the program on your computer that were not removed when you uninstalled it. Did you uninstall McAfee via Add/Remove Programs (or "Programs and Features" for Vista) in the Control Panel? Also, you might want to try these instructions from McAfee that will help get rid of any remnants left on your computer: How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool Regards, Keith
  2. Ah so it does depend on your Windows settings. Cool. Well, I'm glad you got it sorted, albeit a work-around. Maybe the developers will address this. Regards, Keith
  3. Hello hacked, Not sure if MBAM depends on Windows for it's time display settings but here is how my scheduler GUI looks: Regards, Keith
  4. The exponential rate of threats removed is incredible; it was just last year we were talking about 2.5 billion after 5 years, now 1.5 billion more in such a short period of time. It speaks volumes to the product you all offer and it is also alarming at the same time. I can't make up my mind of what's worse... The fact that people have been going without a product like MBAM for so long or the fact that there are so many more threats out there today that need to be removed. Either way, great job Malwarebytes' staff, please keep it up! Regards, Keith
  5. That's correct Agas, I'm using Antivir
  6. Definitely an FP, but it's good to get these things reported
  7. Just got the notice myself 10 mins ago that avcenter.exe in folder C:\Program Files\Avira\Antivir Desktop\ was infected on my XP SP3 machine EDIT: It appears Antivir was trying to update when MBAM flagged it.
  8. Oh no problem... Been awhile since I've been on the forums so I figured I would stop by and try to answer some questions that I could help with. Hopefully it will help someone else in the future Regards, Keith
  9. Based on what I've read from MVP Host's website, the DNSCache service is supposed to be stopped and disabled when using a HOSTS file over a few hundred KBs. From what I remember, it will slow down the DNS process if you leave it enabled since it has to search your cache first, then the HOSTS file. It should still be on MVP Host's website if you want to read it for yourself. To address your specific question, it makes sense to flush the DNS Cache after updating your HOSTS file because entries might have been added that were not there previously or vice versa.
  10. I'm not familiar with what port 8 is... But that is concerning that your lease is set to expire every 5 minutes. That does not make good sense. Is the IP you are referring to the private IP address of your computer (ex or the public IP address assigned from your ISP to your DSL modem (ex Also, in your setup, you don't have a router or anything? Just the DSL modem to your computer? After a bit of research, now I know why I'm not familiar with port 8... It's not assigned to anything according to IANA. If that is supposed to be the port number, I would definitely get your computer checked out because your connection is communicating on unassigned well-known ports which doesn't happen very often or at all even.
  11. 192.168.x.x is a private address which is used on LANs behind routers. Something called NAT where multiple private IP addresses are mapped to 1 public IP address. I do not know what the (8) means however, sorry. Regards, Keith
  12. Just because they do it this way now, doesn't mean it can't be changed or should be changed. I have to agree with JohnLogan... I hope the developers will at least create an option to not display the log file if the scan comes back clean. Thanks in advance. Regards, swagger
  13. New design is alright but just looking back at what was brought up by catscomputer, where are the links to things like MalwareNET? Site design has the Web 2.0 look but lacks in basic functionality. I'm sure you'll resolve these problems soon. Regards, swagger
  14. Hey jholland1964, You are correct. The best and most effective way to scan with MBAM is in normal mode. In situations where you can't scan with MBAM in normal mode, you can try safe mode, but I would definitely recommend scanning in normal mode once you are able to. The reasons are for exactly what you mentioned, not all of the drivers that MBAM needs are loaded in safe mode, preventing it from being as effective as it should be. I hope this helps. Regards, swagger
  15. The future looks bright for MBAM. Good luck on getting all of this done and I can't wait to see the finished result. Regards, Keith
  16. Thanks nosirrah! Any idea what the file does? I couldn't find anything relevant from Google. Regards, swagger
  17. Forgot to upload the file, sorry. pv_c3.zip
  18. Hello Ran a scan last night and Malwarebytes' hit on this file. Looking at it from a folder level, it appears to be last modified back in 2007 but was created in 2009 and I know I have run several Malwarebytes' scans since then. Here's some more info. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44 Database version: 3662 Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13 1/30/2010 11:58:22 AM mbam-log-2010-01-30 (11-58-17).txt Scan type: Quick Scan Objects scanned: 118490 Time elapsed: 6 minute(s), 11 second(s) Memory Processes Infected: 0 Memory Modules Infected: 0 Registry Keys Infected: 0 Registry Values Infected: 0 Registry Data Items Infected: 0 Folders Infected: 0 Files Infected: 1 Memory Processes Infected: (No malicious items detected) Memory Modules Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Keys Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Values Infected: (No malicious items detected) Registry Data Items Infected: (No malicious items detected) Folders Infected: (No malicious items detected) Files Infected: C:\WINDOWS\system32\pv_c3.exe (Trojan.Agent) -> No action taken.

  19. Happy Birthday! Save a piece of ice-cream cake for me!
  20. Thanks all for your hard work! Can't wait for the new site launch!!! Regards, Keith
  21. CCMUA2009, The lmhosts.sam file is fine. If you see lmhosts without the extension, that is an infected file. Regards, swagger
  22. Hello jns11, Your question has already been answered here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=37491 EDIT - Bruce beat me to it anyway Regards, swagger
