  1. Like others, I've spent multiple days trying to resolve this, both on my own and with tech support from LabTech/ConnectWise, as we push Malwarebytes Endpoint Security installations from within the LabTech/ConnectWise Automate MSP system to systems we manage remotely. Coincidentally, we have only experienced this issue with Anti-Exploit, as Anti-Malware seems to install just fine in the absence of .NET 3.5. What's worse: after installing Anti-Exploit, we can uninstall .NET 3.5 and Anti-Exploit continues to run normally (as far as we can tell). It appears that .NET 3.5 is only necessary DUR
  2. For some reason a bunch of my posts were taken out of their respective topics and mushed into one kind of related topic, so I am reposting, with the specific questions that need to be addressed. Currently, any attempt to deploy to stock installs of Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 fail, whether the Malwarebytes management console is used, or the MSI package created using the console is deployed via other means (I have tried PDQ Deploy and Group Policy Software Installation). The root cause of this issue is a reliance on .NET 3.5, which is not activated by default on Windows 8+, and
  3. Hello helpful forum guides, I have just run into a major crash and reset my Lenovo G780 to factory default, thinking that it would clear everything off the computer, but it just crashed again and as I just loaded my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro installation (from cd) trying to rebuild my installation, it installed but won't update. I get the following error message: Program error upating 404, 0, HTTPstatuscode..... Lenovo is running Windows 8 on 8gb of ram 64-bit Here are my logs from running Farbar: FRST.txt Scan result of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) (x64) Version:18-10-2015 Ran by sage
  4. i just bought a computer from the store and the salesman downloaded Apache OpenOffice by putting a USB in the computer. Maybe there was a virus in the folder as that moments onwards my computer was infected. There were multiple unknown programs installed including: eye perform, crossbrowse, oursurfing, cinemaplus, etc... I tried reinstalling windows and did a whole system reset but the advertisements came a week later. After that I tried uninstalling the programs but they did no effect or didn't allow me to stating that there were windows not closed concerning the program but I checked Task Ma
  5. Antimalware release 2.1.8 sys driver crashes in windows 8, and causes blue screen on death with error code SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (tcpip). The mini dumpfile created by windows on crash identifies the sys driver of Antimalware as source of crash. I assume the solution is that Antimalwarebytes needs to update its driver. Or is there antother solution?
  6. Every time malwarebytes runs it finds three or four instances of searchscopes in IE in the registry. I can't get rid of it. There is nothing in my programs and features to uninstall. I've gone into the settings and extensions for IE and can't find anything. I have MWB delete them each time but next time it runs, it finds it. I've even tried to delete it from my registry, but it always comes back. If this isn't malware, why does MWB keep flagging it? How can I get rid of it for good??? Thanks,
  7. My Malwarebytes doesn't open. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled the free version. I do own the premium version and it still won't open. In the past, it's worked erratically and I don't know why. Is there some problem with Windows 8?
  8. No matter what I change my sleep settings to--screen off after 15 minutes, sleep after 20, etc., eventually they both get changed back to "Never". You can set them, click around in the control panel, then come back and see they changed. I've run several virus scans (Malwarebytes, Eset online, Bitdefender) and got nothing. I don't know if this is connected, but when I open the sleep settings from the "charm" menu on the right, once I've changed the settings I can't close the settings. I can close the window, it's gone from the task bar, but it shows up in file manager. This has been going on
  9. Dear all, I was just wanting to play Colin Mcrae Rally 2005 and realised I needed to make it 64 bit/ windows 8 compatible, went online did some searching and I found out I needed to download some 3rd party programs. It looks like, they were not 100% legit and now my computer cannot boot, not even in safe mode, or safe mode with command prompt. When I boot up the computer now, it says, my motherboard screen, then "Preparing Automatic Repair", then "Diagnosing your PC". After it has done this it says Automatic Repair, your pc did not start correctly. It gives me 2 options, Restart or Advanced
  10. I downloaded the trial version last week. I ran a complete scan and quaranteened then removed all the malware found. After I restarted the computer I tried logging into my wife's account to check something and it would only allow me to log in as a temporary user. This happened to all the user accounts. Also, I remember that after restarting my PC and logging into my account, which is an admin account, the desktop was blank and all my tiles were gone. I restarted again and logged in and it seemed okay. This is after running MB. The PC was okay till after I ran the scan and repair. H
  11. Hi there I am having problems with my windows 8 not downloading malwarebytes and other programs. I recieve a message saying this system cannot run this app please contact the software administrator. I have followed the instructions and downloaded the farbar recovery tool and followed through with the scan and have copies of the FRST.txt and ADDITION.txt see attached. I thank you soooooo much for your help. Farbar scan ADDITION.txt
  12. Over the last few weeks while browsing items on the net I have had many sites not formatting correctly (Particularly banking sites) and so have not been using them on this PC. Today I was having issues logging into Dropbox and so decided to go the the task manager and see if I could figure out the problem. I came across some interesting processes so decided to use CCleaner to check start up programs. I did not find anything there but when I went on to check the registry (also using CCleaner) I found a suspicious looking item. When I went to google to look up this item I found many site referin
  13. Updated malware bytes, non-beta, this morning and let it run a scan on my kids windows 8 laptop. After removing all recommended items, I get an error when trying to connect to anything online: Unable to connect to property server. WIndows 8 and malware byte versions are up to date as of this morning. All I can find even close to this issue are related to windows home server and not windows 8. Could it be possible that malware bytes deleted something the prevents all internet connetions?

  15. Hello, my comp info: Windows 8.1 Pro / 64bit / google chrome Version 32.0.1700.102 m I've read many forums dealing with this problem. I am trying to use my normal google browser but this " http://search.yahoo.com/?type=599486&fr=spigot-yhp-ch " comes up instead EVERY time... I have uninstalled google chrome many times and reinstalled. It does not work..! I notice an issue with this "spigot" thing that people are mentioning. I downloaded anti malware softwares and what not but I can't seem to get rid of the problem (don't understand either). I don't see the spigot name anywhere any mor
  16. When i run Malwarebytes using windows 8 it says file: windows/syswow64/rund1132.exe is a PUP and when I select to have it removed it says it was successfully removed but when I restart and run malwarebytes again it is still there. Any ideas on what to do?
  17. I got redirected to a suspected dodgey version of a bitcoin site (real site is .com this one identified itself as .cloudnet) Since then (few hours later) no apps would connect to the internet. Chrome would say could not connect to proxy, I don't use a proxy. Tor would connect though but that's because it uses its own proxy, not the system one. USB memory sticks have been acting weird too. I've been getting the 'this USB has a problem click to fix' error and an I/O error due to an invalid system string or application request. The laptop is pretty high spec and used to boot up in a flash and be
  18. I have a Toshiba P850 with Windows 8 loaded with Norton 360.. which is why I'm baffled how MBAM found a list of PUP.Optional.PassShow.A's and PUP.Optional.NextLive.A's particularly attached to Registry keys. (My subscription to System Mechanic Pro expired yesterday.) I'm not a techie or even well read in computers but know enough to realize 'you' don't mess with the registry. Here's the latest log, from the Pro trial as I don't have the money to pay for a subscription.: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Trial) Database version: v2013.12.29.02 Windows 8 x6

  21. HI, After a cnet download yesterday, my wife's new windows 8 laptop started misbehaving. Apparently Mixi.DJ toolbar was installed in chrome browser which quickly took control of all the browsers. In an attempt to remove this toolbar spyhunter4 was briefly installed. Now both of these have been uninstalled but there are still effects on the machine but these nothing is being picked by by malware or virus scanners. We're very grateful for any assistance!

  24. Hello, I have an HP Pavillion Elite HPE running Windows 8. Have not had many problems with the machine, but started getting a couple of malware warnings in Chrome while browsing today and decided to run something since it had been a while. Malwarebytes quick scan found 2 infected files which were deleted, restarted as prompted. Since that restart the computer will no longer boot, it hangs on the HP splash screen and I am unable to access my BIOS settings by hitting F10 or anything else.
