  1. I'm running Win 10 64-bit. I just de-installed MBAE and MBAR, because one or both prevent me from renaming files, folders, moving files, and copying files. I posted about this on another page, and haven't heard anything back. That was 11/06/17 on the MBAE forum, and 11/12/17 on the MBAR forum: MBAE and MBAR, Access Denied, visible TMP files - MBAE Forum . . . https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214152-mbae-and-mbar-access-denied-visible-tmp-files/ MBAE and MBAR, Access Denied, visible TMP files - MBAR Forum . . . https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214735-mbae-and-mbar-access-denied-visible-tmp-files-mbar-forum/ They're betas, so expect bugs. I think I will go back to just running MBAM Free once per week. I haven't had any virus or malware issues in a while, so I think that should be fine.
  2. I'm not getting an answer on this in the MBAE forum. MBAR seems like it's most responsible for me seeing the TMP files. What's that about? MBAE and MBAR, Access Denied, visible TMP files - Anti-Exploit Beta - Malwarebytes Forums . . . https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/214152-mbae-and-mbar-access-denied-visible-tmp-files/
  3. I haven't noticed this issue recently. Did it get fixed?
  4. I'm trying MBAE, and MBAR . . . Introducing Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta . . . I guess you do need anti-virus, and anti-malware, on the Host computer, and every virtual machine. In Virtual Box, I have these . . . XP Pro for old games . . . and I'm taking a look at the most popular Linux distros: 1.) Win XP Pro 2.) Ubuntu - with MacBuntu GUI 3.) Ubuntu - regular install 4.) Linux Mint 5.) Debian
  5. I'll see if there's an update once per month. Thanks!
  6. I'm trying both of these: MBAE and MBAR I see that they don't auto-update. How often do they update? MBAE gives you the version number in the file name, but not MBAR. Any idea why? That's useful to know. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - MBAE . . . mbae-setup- . . . mbae-setup- MBAR mbarw-setup-consumer- . . . mbarw-setup-consumer- . . .
  7. The future of XP limited? No, you can run it on a new 64-bit computer, in a VirtualBox . . . https://www.virtualbox.org/attachment/wiki/Screenshots/gnome.png
  8. Using Win 10, MBAE and MBAR I was unable to rename folders, and move files from one folder to another. I did a Restart, and was able to, but then this would start again. I turned off MBAE - no effect . . . I turned of MBAR - back to normal. I'm working on an xlsx, and save it . . . What are these Temp files I see in File Explorer? I turn off MBAE . . . F5 to refresh the folder . . . they disappear I type something else into the xlsx, save it, and get the Temp files back I then turn off MBAR . . . no F5 required, they disappear on their own
  9. . . . No need for SP1 and SP2 . . . Once you install SP3 you should find Windows Update will work. False. SP3 won't install, unless you have SP1 or SP2 installed. I don't think you can find SP1 today, so go with SP2, because it contains SP1. I can say that at least this "soft32" page is ok. I downloaded SP2 from it, scanned it with Avast (it was ok), and it installed with no issues: Download Windows XP Service Pack 2 Free . . https://windows-xp-service-pack-2.soft32.com/free-download/
  10. Hey no problem, I've learned some things here, too, I appreciate it. I see that MB acquired AdwCleaner . . . https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/ Malwarebytes Acquires AdwCleaner, 10/19/16 . . . https://press.malwarebytes.com/2016/10/19/malwarebytes-acquires-adwcleaner/ That would be another program to show on the scatter-graph. I don't think "MBAM Free" or AdwCleaner provide "real-time" protection, so that's a distinction to make note of on the scatter-graph . . . This would be in contrast to "MBAM Paid Version," MBAE, and MBAR Every month, the scatter-graphs should be updated to reflect MB's defense against the current threats. So, if I didn't have the paid version of the software, then I'd have a better idea of what I have to watch out for . . . and eventually figure out why I need the paid version
  11. Sounds good, thanks . . . I'd like to see some kind of graphics that let me know why I need more than the free version, or MBAE and MBAR. Maybe have the top 5 or 10 current attack paths of the month, and indicate how each MB product handled it 1.) on-the-fly 2.) with a scheduled, automated scan 3.) when one got around to doing a manual scan
  12. Please see attached graphic. It would be very useful to see something like this, for each of the possible threats.
  13. . . . sounds like a tech support scam site I see that MrExcel was hacked . . . http://www.mrexcel.com/details-of-data-breach-at-mrexcel-com/ E-mails and passwords were exposed online, they asked me to change my password . . . but it appears to be a valid site . . . I didn't know about scam tech support sites, thx . . . I never got any answers to my questions, there, though, so I don't think it's the greatest help forum. . . . VirusBulletin and similar organizations, we don't generally put too much stock in them only because the tests they perform tend to be somewhat unrealistic It seems like their test must have some benchmark value, though. . . . I don't have a precise one to one analog for the information presented on VB, we do have several whitepapers, infographics and other information . . . A hundred articles there. I'd like to go through all of them, but don't have the amount of time needed to do so. I'd just like to see a snapshot of how the MB programs hold up, individually, and in combinations, in order to make a decision of what will work in my situation. It doesn't matter to me if you do the test, as long as you say that you're honest about the results.
  14. Honest facts are what sell me, or eventually convince me that I need something. I like that scatter graph that Virus Bulletin has (link mentioned above). It would be interesting to see one of those for the MB programs (individual, and combinations), mentioned above, for the various attacks . . . it would also make me aware of what all the possible attacks are . . . for example, I usually don't click on ads or popups, so protection from that wouldn't be important to me . . . Besides the PUP infection I got mentioned above, the only other recent "attack" I've noticed was that I was on an "Excel" help site, or "VB" help site, and out of nowhere, a tab in Firefox opened, the page had a red background, and it played the same sound as my alarm clock. It had a rectangular "sign in" window (right, I'm gonna type something in there). I had to use Task Manager to kill it - and Firefox. I opened FF back up, and everything seemed ok. No idea why Avast didn't stop that. I think I might have had MBAM installed then too, Free Trial of the paid version. I think it was from Mr. Excel, and I have seen it before: https://www.mrexcel.com http://www.vbforums.com That must be a grand pop-up, lol. I scanned with Avast and MBAM, nothing found, but I'm thinking I might like it if that were detected and blocked.
