  1. For me simply downloading/reinstalling the latest version of Malwarebytes seemed to fix it. Didn't need to uninstall, just installed it over the top and it seemed to fix it although uninstalling might help some.
  2. Yeah a filter option would be helpful. Thanks
  3. I have mentioned this in the suggestion area before but didn't know if it would be helpful to bring this up here. I would love to see better organisation of the exclusions. I like the fact that all exclusions are in one area, and the way you add exclusions is very simple in a good way - allowing you to pick the exclusion type and so on. What would make the exclusions easier to manage is a drop down list or something similar allowing you to basically select the type of exclusion e.g. web, and see only those types of exclusions. It could have a show all default option at the top of the list.
  4. Hi again. Is this something that Malwarebytes plans to add anytime soon? I have Malwarebyes set to alert me about PUPs as i like this option but have a few PUPs in exclusion area that i need. I also have some sites in there so the exclusions can luck messy and would love to see it get tidied up. Thanks again
  5. Things are being found in the app data folder as well as the program folder and also start menu folder but whatever folders i exclude it seems to ignore and seems to flag evey file. The problem is there are lots of files in the program folder so lots of files get flagged. I will try to get a screenshot next time i can get on the pc
  6. But that won't fix the issue for anyone else. This isn't for multiple pups basically malwarebytes is ignoring an exclusion for a pups folder and classing everything in that folder as a pup. Is there anywhere i can submit this as a bug?
  7. I'd like to add its finding well over a thousand threats the problem being ignoring all these will take up a lot of room in exclusions. It should just allow me to exclude a specific folder and anything else inside that folder
  8. Thanks for the help just running a scan now but is this a bug? Surely if a folder is added to exclusions it should ignore it on a scan. I updated the component package before the scan after noticing this "Fixed a number of issues with Exclusions, including Scan Exclusions not working correctly for all trace detections," but that didn't make any odds. Never had any exclusion issues before in the past.
  9. I use SlimDrivers which Malwarebytes classes as a PUP. I want Malwarebytes to exclude it from detections. I have placed the whole program folder as an exclusion e.g. the programs folder in C:\Program Files (x86) The problem is that malwarebytes ignores this exclusion when running a full system scan. Not only does it ignore it every file to do with SlimDrivers gets flagged on the scan e.g. every file inside the program folder and any others in any other location. As there are quite a few files inside the program folder it makes it look like its found lots of threats. If the whole folder is an exclusion why is it doing this? Thanks
  10. Would possibly a confirmation not work or even needing a password e.g. "This site has been flagged as dangerous and could damage your computer, are you sure you want to unblock it." You could even have it disabled by default and require the user to enable it - a lot of novice users tend not to enable stuff e.g. if it's in the advanced section.
  11. Yeah the advantage of a troubleshooter is it doesn't just show you what is blocked like the logs but also allows you in a sense to unblock with just one click. I also hope malwarebytes considers an unblock feature in the popups at least for the web side. The tray option for the last site is only useful if you know it's there
  12. By malwarebytes. Take eset which i use alongside malwarebytes. As it has a firewall the last 2 versions have also i introduced a troubleshooter so if something doesn't load and you think eset has blocked it you can open it and it will show you if anything that has been recently blocked and click unblock. Saves you having to disable stuff.
  13. Not sure if this would make sense in Malwarebytes as it isn't really a firewall, but I've noticed a lot of security suites adding troubleshooters and wondered if Malwarebytes would benefit from one. The idea is that if something is blocked e.g. a program, website etc. the troubleshooter is an easy way to discover if it is being blocked. Sometimes things get blocked by accident and people who aren't tech savvy might struggle finding out how to unblock them. A troubleshooter can take the complications out of this.
  14. Someone over at the Eset forum shared something rather interesting. Google has been complaining for a while about security products making browsers more insecure rather than secure and it seems they are planning to stop this by blocking them. Not sure how or if they will do this in the end. People on the link suggest it could use a whitelist to make sure the ones causing issues are blocked. Someone mentioned this could cause issues for things such as anti exploit and I'm just wondering if this goes ahead how it woll effect malwarebytes. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/google-chrome-plans-to-block-av-module-process-injection.394120/
  15. Yeah i have found the latest update a lot more stable. Glad to see the protections not being disabled anymore at least for me
  16. Thanks again for the quick reply. Yeah the all option wifh other options to filter is what i had in mind.
  17. Yeah I use Eset myself alongside Malwarebytes. I just thought because it said on clicking it would turn it off but if they don't do this I do understand why
  18. I'd love it if Malwarebytes made is so the exclusion area is better organised. For example most security programs tend to have file exclusions and web exclusions separate. I do like that there's just one tab for exclusions as sometimes security suites do have certain exclusions in completely different areas. I also like the simplicity of the add exclusion button which after clicking you then choose the exclusion type - it's simple but very easy to use. What I would like though is a way to view the types of exclusions separately. Currently you can organise them by type but it would be good if you could view only a specific type. This could be done by having separate areas or simply a drop down list where you can pick the specific type. A way to search for stuff would also be great. The report area has the same issue and would benefit from being able to see just a specific type. Thanks Peter
  19. If it's a security concern it could always be disabled by default and/or have a confirmation dialog
  20. Thanks for your quick reply. Each on/off bit is clickable so it would be handy if they could be used as it would be a lot quicker
  21. Hi there. Just to confirm it is in the system tray option. However would the developers consider adding an option on the popup e.g. you could have a add to exception option alongside a view exceptions option. I would never have thought to check the system tray and so other users may not - having it in the system tray is good in case you miss/close the popup but it would be handier and quicker to also be able to do this directly via the popup. Thanks again
  22. Just downloaded this to try it. In the changelog it says "Added ability to exclude the last website blocked by Web Protection via the tray menu" however it doesn't seem to work in the way it promises. All I see close and manage exclusions. Clicking manage exclusions does now open Malwarebytes in the exclusion settings area but you still have to then manually add it in. Is this a bug? It would be far easier like the changelog seems to imply if we could simply click add to exclusions on the popup and have it add it in without having to type it in manually.
  23. Currently if you click the on/off buttons on the realtime protection part (righthand side) on the dashboard it takes you to the protection tab in the settings area where you then have to click again to enable/disable. It would be easier and far quicker if you could simply disable it in the dashboard when you clicked on/off.
  24. I posted this in the main support section but was recommended to post here. Basically when a website is blocked you are given a manage exclusion box. Clicking that takes you to the malware main dashboard so you then still have to go to settings - exclusions and then add it in manually. What I'd like to suggest is another option on the alert basically similar to what an interactive firewall uses that would basically add it straight away exclusions. If this is something that Malwarebytes wouldn't consider, at least make it so clicking manage exclusions actually goes to the exclusions. I know some people might be worried about allowing something they shouldn't so there are two options that could work to avoid this, that could also be combined if need be. The first is making this option off by default, basically meaning a user has to turn it on. The other is basically a confirmation e.g. "Are you sure you want to add this to the exclusions."
