  1. when I load up MBAM it brings up that my trial has ended, but i cannot click anything on the MBAM screen. I can go to the desktop behind it and click anything and it works perfectly. I have the MB-check results when needed. mb-check-results.zip
  2. Hello All, I've just downloaded this version and in Win 10 x 64, build 15063.540 I keep getting this alert from Windows Defender when scanning with MBAM, admin and limited user it is repeatable. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/threats/malware-encyclopedia-description?Name=Trojan:Win32/Dynamer!ac
  3. You should build in AdwCleaner in MBAM so we do not need to download adwcleaner separate!
  4. Your PC/Device needs to be repaired the operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors. File: \windows\system32\drivers\MBAMSwissArmy.sys Error code: 0xc000007b not sure what to do I've gone through start up settings but to no avail, no disc reader on my pic so can't do disc recover. Need help
  5. Hi, I am in process of clearing up all the PUMs I deem as false positives. We currently have 18,000 alerts in threat view which I believe I have added most of these to the ignore list. I would like to know how to clear all these in bulk as the Page "All" option does not show me all threats to then highlight and remove. Any advice? Sure it's a simple option somewhere.
  6. Three weeks left until MBAM gets its support cut and like I said before, I am not upgrading to the new version in case I run into problems again. I can just go ahead and keep the old version even when it reaches its End Of Life but right now I'm feeling paranoid of it just being unsupported and therefore not get any new definition updates. If that's going to be the case, then I would like to know any good-enough alternatives to it, even ones that provide real-time protection which has been a life-saver to me many times, and I would to thank MBAM for that. The only ones I know of are Panda AntivirusPro and ClamAV but I don't know which is better out of the two I've been told. ClamAV only because it's open-source but doesn't have real-time protection, unless its add-on Clam Sentinel is thrown in, then it's no problem. I was also told that Avast 8 might be a good one too even though that's an older version but still gets new definitions, and still having support for WinXP and 2000. Although, a part of me would want to get F-Secure back when I had that on my old computer, and it had done me well. I hope some of you can talk about other alternatives that I can go for even though I am aware that something like this may be talked about already in another thread or two. I hope I can get a good-enough alternative because, I really don't want to just depend on Windows Defender or get back MSE if I don't have to (even when I had issues with that last year, over a certain process. Not sure if that's been fixed since). Thanks in advance PS: If this is in the wrong section, then feel free to move it. Wasn't sure if it was suited here even though MBAM is the main subject concerned.
  7. So I recently got Malwarebytes 3 and when I try to scan something, it scans abseloutley nothing. I tried starting it up in Administrator, and that didn't fix it. Please help!
  8. Could anyone please confirm that my twenty or so MBAM for Business licenses (which still show 'Corporate' on the main screen and the current version as will also license me to install MBARW on those twenty Win7 machines legitimately. MBARW installs no problem and shows CU Package 1.1.46, but it also seems happy to install on just about anything without complaint. The subscription I've had for years is for MBAM for Business (and does not include 'MBAE for Business' nor the new 'MB Endpoint Security'. Would appreciate clarification (or possibly education..) Many thanks.
  9. Hey guys, sorry about necro-ing this thread but I do have the exact same issue as EniNeu A scan with GMER reveals this as well : Service C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\WdBoot.sys (*** hidden *** ) [BOOT] WdBoot <-- ROOTKIT !!! Service C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\WdFilter.sys (*** hidden *** ) [BOOT] WdFilter <-- ROOTKIT !!! Service C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Defender\MsMpEng.exe (*** hidden ***) [AUTO] WinDefend <-- ROOTKIT !!! I am wondering if I should attempt deletion through GMER or if there is a better way. Just in case this might be a false positive I've attached a log of the complete scan. Thank you in advance CHRONOS gmer scan 03.05.17.log

  11. The issue has been fixed and steps to resolve are at the bottom of the post. I have been suffering from the dreaded real time protection layer disabling itself for the ransomware since installing 3.x In troubleshooting I was asked to run MBAM clean and then reboot and reinstall. I have done this three times now. The issue I have now is that every time I boot my PC and login I get a notification from windows to open a file and windows does not know what to open the file with. A window appears. See screenshot MBAMClean_windows.png (attached) How do you want to open this type of file (.1007) (Which corresponds with mb-clean- How do I know this has anything to do with Malware Bytes? If I try to open it with wordpad I get this: See screenshot MBAMClean_error.png (attached) I have checked my startup and I do not see anything related to MBAM clean. I don't know what failed or what happened. I know that the mbam clean file is still in the downloads folder. How do I go about resolving this issue that happens now every time I login? After following all the steps outlined Here: Resolution: I found the issue. From running the FRST scan In my Addition.txt log file I found under this section: ==================== Scheduled Tasks (Whitelisted) ============= Task: {EDDEF87A-FFF4-49FF-9216-4B2EE38ADD7B} - System32\Tasks\mbclean => C:\Users\Wooley-x64\Downloads\mb-clean- I then went to Start --> Tasks Scheduler --> Deleted the MBAM clean entry, Issue is now resolved. Posting this in case anyone else comes across this issue.
  12. On starting my computer I get the error message "Malwarebytes was unable to load anti-Rootkit Driver. Error code 20025. Do you want to continue the scan without anti-rootkit support?" I get the same error message if I start a scan, after it finishes checking for updates. I'm using WIndows 7 Professional SP1 64-Bit, and MBAM Licensed (Premium) C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\logs is attached as requesed. Logs.zip
  13. The new version of MBAM reports that my Android tablet is already rooted, which given the number of failed attempts to do so is ironic at best. The notification of it being rooted has even survived re-formatting the device and re-flashing the factory firmware image and re-installing MBAM, so I suspect it is a false notification. Device in question is an AstroTab A10 tablet, Allwinner A83T chipset, Android 5.1.1.
  14. Okay, I think this is probably my first post on the forums, so I apologize for being a noob and doing whatever annoying things noobs do before they get a clue. That said, I am pretty positive I have a rootkit. It's a quiet and crafty sort; from the beginning there were no obvious signs of infection, there wasn't any slowing or memory leaking, no unusual traffic noted. I felt like something was off, but I couldn't pinpoint what until I got the first warning message from MBAM (see Exploit Blocking below). Now I notice that all my desktop icons are rearranged and suddenly there is a bit of dead space at the bottom where I can no longer move any icons, though that's kind of the least of my worries. Please see all the notes below and txt files (assuming I can figure out how to attach them!). I believe the initial infection came from a popup/pop under (can't recall which, sorry!) at http://www (dot) nowvideo (dot) sx/video/11bb079eff255 while using Chrome. Yes, I run AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, and have all my many browsers configured to block popups, and I never have any issues on any other sites, but this one managed to get around all that. I threw everything I could think of at this but I really just feel like I'm chasing it from one corner to another. Any help would be thoroughly appreciated. MBAM: * Initial error message that an exploit was blocked in Powershell (see txt file) * Scans Clean - All Scans * Starts up as normal, except Web Protection is shut off * On first load, Web Protection can be re-enabled * At some point, Web Protection with return to off, and Exploit Protection goes with it * Exploit Protection can be re-enabled, but it will switch off again * On attempting to re-enable Web Protection, it will forever say "Starting..." until next reboot ~~~ MBAR: * Scans clean ~~~ Avast: * Scans clean ~~~ TrendMicro Housecall: * Scans clean ~~~ GMER: * Initially found the following: Service C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\WdBoot.sys (*** hidden *** ) [BOOT] WdBoot <-- ROOTKIT !!!

  15. I use AVG paid for and MBAM free. All programs are the latest versions, and both have the latest databases. This morning when I logged onto my computer, to my horror, I found that AVG had popped up a dialog saying that the installer program for 7zip, 7z1604-x64.exe, harbors the Trojan horse Atros5.AYO. Check out the attached screen shot. So, I opened MBAM, updated its database, and then scanned my entire directory where I store all installer files. MBAM found no issues whatsoever. See attached screen shot. I then went to https://www.virustotal.com and uploaded 7z1604-x64.exe and forced it to re-analyse it. Virustotal likewise found nothing, including, bizarrely, its version of AVG! See attached screen shot. What are your recommendations on how I should handle this? Is AVG known for false alarms, or are they among the first to identify new threats? I note a related but distinct inquiry on this forum about 3.5 years ago:
  16. Hi I just recently the Latest MBAM software on the official site of malwarebytes but everytime i try to install the latest one it goes on installing but in the midst of installation it says MBAMWsc.exe has some source file corrupted problems.. I also tried installing older MBAM versions such as 2.2.1 but the same source file is corrupted issue is always popping out.. so i tried using FRST recovery tool and there are its diagnosis on my system on the attachments.. i hope someone could help me..

  17. We frequently have to deploy chameleon on many machines at a time, but it installs MBAM 2 not 3. This is a PITA because customers now expect the latest version and upgrading everything manually is not an option. Chameleon doesn't like a renamed MBAM3 setup and goes on to download and install MBAM2. Is there a command line option or something to make it install MBAM3? Pleeease, think about guys deploying on many machines!
  18. Hi I recently Installed a New CPU fan as mine was getting hot for some reason. I went to boot my PC after installing the new fan and I now get the message "That a critical driver is missing2 This appears to be "system32/driver/MBAMSwissarmy.sys" which apparently something to do with Malwarebytes" I cant get past the boot menu so I cant get onto my PC. Is this a virus and how do i fix it?
  19. Oddly, the website blocked pop-up notifications are colored green. Green is traditionally used as a "passing" color. More typically website blocked notifications should be yellow/orange/red according to severity. Not a biggie, but something to consider for coming updates.
  20. Hi, My MBAM Premium has been running a scan for over 16 hours and is still running. Solution? Thanks!
  21. We have received a handful of reports of Compatibility Assistant within Windows 10 telling users "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware doesn't work on this version of Windows." See Windows 10 build 14965 and Windows 10 build 14971. We are seeing the following: MBAM 1.75 EXE fails with compatibility warning MBAM 1.8 EXE (Enterprise build) fails with compatibility warning MBAM EXE fails with compatibility warning MB EXE installs properly At this time we do not have a workaround for those installers which are failing. We are in contact with Microsoft and have requested a fix and explanation of why they are blocking the MBAM installers. Just to assure you, we have over 20 million users running MBAM under Windows 10 without a problem, so we are perplexed at why Microsoft is blocking MBAM at this time. If you run into this, please share your findings here. We will continue to monitor and will update this threat as we find out more information from Microsoft.
  22. Last night i upgraded my MB to V3. In doing so I ran into the typical issue many people seem to be getting, the protection layers turned off issue. However i also ran into a 2nd issue that I don't see mentioned here. Since installing V3, Chrome has serious issues with lockups. So serious that I thought a bit of malware that I contracted a few months back (and thought I had cleaned up) had come back to bite me again, so this morning, I wiped everything and reinstalled windows 10 (pro) from scratch. All was good with Chrome, until I installed V3 again, and again the lockups began again. Uninstalled MB 3 and did a reboot and all is working good again. My system right now has the following installed on it Software; Dropbox, Foxit Reader, ImgBurn, KeePass, Office 365, Visual Studio Code, Notepad++, Paint.Net, Sophos AV Home, Google Chrome (plus the usual W10 stuff). In Chrome I have the following add-ons. DuckieTV, PrivacyBadger, OneTab, ProxMate, IBA Optout (by google), PushBullet, uBlock Origin, Inbox by GMail, BS Detector, Google Drive. All of which were installed from legitimate / trusted sources. The problem only arises with the install of MB 3.
  23. I'm having issues even installing it to Windows 10 Build 14971. It says that it is not compatible with this version of Windows.
  24. As I found out, Malwarebytes does NOT STOP if you exit the program. It just keep scanning without caring what the user on PC need. I have a I4470k with 16gb ram and 3.8TB SSD and MBAM just eats away all the power I invested in. That is now OVER. SIMPLE WAY: 1) SCAN your Machine 2) disable scheduler and service 3) When you need it, start MBAM and it will start scheduler and service itself. After that I disable it again in services.
