  1. I am currently on MalwareBytes Program Verison and today MalwareBytes asked me to update to Program Version 3.0, which I tried and did not like. So I reinstalled the old version of the program. Now, every time I click on it, there is a popup that says "A new version of MalwareBytes is ready to be installed." and also there is a yellow banner at the top of the program telling me "Your Program Version is out of date" I checked the settings and found under "Update Settings" > "Check for program updates when checking for database updates." I turned it off but it is still doing it. I want to fix this issue. How can I get it done? Thanks for any help you can provide!
  2. Hi, I've recently installed 3.0.5 and have been having troubles with my system. Many of my 'startup' applications no longer run after a reboot (e.g. and are missing from the toolbar). A couple of these programs refuse to stay running, shortly after opening them. The anti-exploit module is broken, and the MBAM system tray icon is missing. I've uninstalled MBAM, and while many of the startup applications are opening normally again, a couple of them have not.. which suggests that 3.0.5 did something that I have no way of knowing how to fix. I did performed 'sfc scannow' and it turned up normal, so maybe there is some hope is fixing this? In the meantime, is there a trusted source where I can download a previous version of Malwarebytes? Is there an archive somewhere? I'll take anything that's recent from 2.0 if possible.
  3. Hello, I wasn't exactly sure where it was appropriate to post this, but I believe I have stumbled upon a false positive. Upon booting my PC, MBAM's daily scan informed me of a Trojan.Kovter in AppData\Local\Temp. In response to this, I ran a deeply thorough scan using MBAM, HitmanPRO, FRST, and FSS with no detections. I also went back and verified the processes running in Process Explorer, since I regularly check what's running on my machine anyway. Nothing about my computer use has been out of the ordinary for this to occur, so I have hypothesized two possible scenarios: A) A false positive B) WinRAR's license advertisements have delivered a successful payload. Scenario B sounds highly unlikely since this has been ongoing thing for some time and I have yet to notice anything outside the ordinary. The following is enclosed with this post: HitmanPRO: Default Scan log; free one-time scan. FRST: The FRST.txt and Addition.txt The following parameters have generated this log: Whitelist: Drivers Internet Processes Registry Services Optional Scan: Addition.txt List BCD 90 Days Files FSS: FSS.txt The following parameters have generated this log: RpcSs and PlugPlay Internet Services Security Center/Action Center System Restore Windows Defender Other Services MBAM: The initial log which triggered the alert, the thorough scan conducted thereafter, and the latest real-time protection logs against the IP's displaying the advertisements (I have others from previous instances of when I used WinRAR, but as I mentioned, up until now it has been benign). For all of the above (MBAM) logs, I have included both the text and xml formats of said logs. I was going to also upload the file in question to VirusTotal as an additional verification, but I decided against it due to the ambiguity of its threat status. Logs.7z
  4. I have read in various locations that the Command Line Interface has not been restored with version 2.0 YET. However, I was hoping for an official response as to when this is planned to be reintegrated. This feature is an absolute must have. Our business retails MBAM and as a courtesy to our customers we (used to) install custom scripts that run periodic updates and scans for them.
  5. Longtime MBAM user here. Have always found the product to be a very elegant, resource-efficient, effective tool. I also have always appreciated the ability for the user to custom configure the way the app works. However, with the 2.x release, I am reconsidering my AV solution. if I can't get this hog to run properly, i'm going to trash it. CPU utilization is terrible and many of the most useful customizations have been omitted from this most recent release. On top of this, I sent in a service request outlining the CPU issues (and some other config questions), sent in the "attach" and "DDS" logs per request and the CSR felt that the best fix for my issues was to run ComboFix...wtf?! When I asked him to provide me with what in my logs pointed him to this (seemingly) incongruent fix, all I've gotten has been silence. Hence, I was forced to open an account here and try to resolve this with some of the more engage MBAM experts here. Original note to MBAM support (log files attached): Drew W, Jul 02 11:41 AM: Dear sirs - I have been a loyal Malwarebytes user for the past several years. Love the product! But, this most recent update to the app omitted some useful features from the past rev, which has added quite a bit of overhead (and annoyance) that need not be. 1) Notifications need to be broken out, like they used to be. Users need to have the option to control how website blocks are notified *and* how threats are notified. The latest rev. lumps them both together. Please break them out again. 2) Scans seem to consume even more CPU than in previous versions. Although I understand the need to focus on the scan, is it truly necessary to consume 90%+ of the CPU (and I have a quad-processor high-RAM device)?! Why not either lower the CPU demand and/or allow a user to control how much of the CPU the app can consume (like Photoshop). 3) Related to CPU consumption...trying to cancel a scan is a disaster. It does not cease the scan immediately, but requires up to 5 minutes to finally cease. Pause scan is immediate. The only way to do an efficient cancel scan is to pause first, wait for the scan to pause, then cancel it. Just hitting "cancel scan" causes the app (and CPU) to hang. 4) Related to the inordinate CPU consumption, scheduled scans are a problem in that if a user selects to Recover missed scans, the scan starts immediately at the next chance (i.e. first bootup of the morning) and just causes all sorts of problems with the high CPU consumption. Please offer the option of the app to *warn* the user of a pending scan with the option to either "continue scan" or "pause scan" (with a drill-down option of a time select for postponing...a la the restart reminder for Windows Update). As it is, I've had to disable the Recovery option. This means I will most surely miss some needed scans (as will other users). Please make changes to ensure that this most recent rev works in the manner that your customer base has become accustomed to. As it is, this most recent rev is a terrible CPU hog with a poorly thought out feature set. I, like others, may end up lighting up the message boards with recommendations NOT to upgrade (and in my case, to go backwards). Thank you for your consideration. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I would appreciate follow-up, please. Drew W attach(DW_W7).txt dds(DW_W7).txt
  6. Hello, I have a problem with Malwarebyte 2.0. I recently update my 1.75 version to 2.0. But now, when I start a scan (any type of scan), my computer freeze at the end of pre-scan operation (the first step of the scan). It's a real problem, old version perfectly work but the new version don't work. I must rester the PC by the power button to stop freeze.
  7. The "general settings" button seems to have a dead spot in the upper left corner, making it harder to click. This is what I mean: The text changes color as the 'hitbox' registers my hoovering. Not a gamebreaker, but it gets frustrating when you want to quickly fly through the settings. This is what I think is the dead spot. Fully reproducible on two different systems, just go to settings and try.
  8. Which is better, The original Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO, or Malwarebytes 2.0 PRO? -- Can someone post some screenshots and some info about 2.0 so I can decide whether or not to upgrade. Cheers. ~Evahh'
