  1. Malwarebytes AntiExplot is causing Firefox to slow to a crawl when saving files. As an example, when i go here - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/, download the x64 version of Firefox i get the "Save File" dialogue box pop up no problem, however under General Settings in Firefox i have "Always ask me where to save files" ticked so i should then get a file save location dialogue box pop up. However, if i have Firefox ticked Under Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes Protection tab then Firefox freezes for about 20 - 30 seconds before the dialogue box appears and then using it is very slow. I've also noticed a general sluggishness to Firefox with the Anti Exploit module enabled for Firefox. If i turn Firefox off under Under Exploit Protection in Malwarebytes Protection tab then all these problems go away. I run Windows 10 version 10.0.14393 & Windows Defender on 64bit Firefox, however this also happened on 32bit Firefox and whilst using Bitdefender Free.
  2. Hi, I use a program called DimScreen which dims the monitor screen for you should you wish, it can be found here:- http://www.nirmaltv.com/2008/08/21/change-monitor-brightness-using-dimscreen-freeware/ Its a program i run at start-up. Malwarebytes has just informed me automatically, perhaps due to a background scan, that the program is a malicious process and identifies it as Trojan.Autoit although i've been using this for a week or so now. Is this a false positive?
