  1. I noticed a program listed in my uninstall list named "Installer" by "Default Company Name." When I begin to uninstall it, it asks me for admin permissions to C:\Windows\Installer\2ef2c531.msi in order to continue the uninstallation, but I'm afraid to do that, because I don't know what it is. There is no location listed for the program. In the registry, it's listed as being in my System32 folder, but I don't see it when I search the folder. My Malwarebytes scan of the folder found nothing malicious. Does anyone know what this could be? FRST.txt Additio
  2. I noticed a program listed in my uninstall list named "Installer" by "Default Company Name." When I begin to uninstall it, it asks to give admin permissions to C:\Windows\Installer\2ef2c531.msi, but I'm afraid to do that, because I don't know what it is. There is no location listed for the program. I recently did a full system scan and it found nothing malicious. Does anyone know what this could be?
  3. I just downloaded malwarebytes and when i was trying to install it i realized that the green bar got stuck and wouldnt continue the installation.
  4. I need to be able to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to scan a Windows10 PC that cannot be connected to the Internet. Where can I download the full MBAM 4 offline installer, not just the MBSetup.exe stub? Also I need the offline Rules update zip file. Where can that be downloaded? TIA
  5. Is there a way to download a Malwarebytes offline installer or a standalone installer as I have a PC which do not have a internet connection? If yes, could you please provide me a method or the link to download the file? Thank you!
  6. Hello everyone, I just read this article and got a little worried: https://www.howtogeek.com/fyi/bing-is-pushing-malware-when-you-search-for-chrome/ I have three quick questions that I hope someone could help me with: 1. If you actually run that phony installer, will it still act as the official installer? As in everything will act normally but you actually have a hidden malware in your Chrome? 2. If I installed Chrome a while ago, how can I check that my installation is genuine and not a fake Google Chrome? I don' have the installer anymore. 3. Would a Malwarebyt
  7. Lately MBAM has become more obnoxious popping up nag boxes to upgrade. If I clicked "no" to this 14 days in a row, why would I will click "yes" on day 15? But putting that aside for a second, I was informed that a new version needs to be downloaded and installed. In other programs this happens seamlessly. In MBAM, I click 'agree and install', it attempts a fresh installation of the whole program, and immediately I get a long error about "could not overwrite mbam.exe"... now, I'm aware of what's happening, it doesn't have permission to shut down and overwrite the main MBAM process,
  8. 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 up
  9. Hey guys so when i install any program i get application installer that installs the same bloatware on all of my applications.
  10. Hi, all, Just got a popup regarding the newest Free Download Manager 5.1.6 Beta installer. During the installer it showed me a popup that it was ransomware, and killed the rest of the installation, but nothing shows in quarantine. I've added the installer to the exclusion list but ti still persists, because of a .tmp file created in the %TEMP% folder. Furthermore, after capturing the screenshot below, I went to look at the file, and it was still in the temp location, but as I was viewing it it abruptly disappeared. I am going to disable protection, run the installer, and captu
  11. Hi. I develop add-ins for Microsoft PowerPoint. A customer has just informed me that MBAM flags my software as malware. The specific software is available for inspection at: http://www.rdpslides.com/ftp/pptools/RESIZE.EXE and http://www.rdpslides.com/ftp/pptools/LANGUAGESELECTOR.EXE Both programs are add-ins for Microsoft PowerPoint. Since this is happening at the customer's site, I'm unable to create a log as requested. In the past, when there have been false positive reports, it's been because the software I use to create my installers has also been used by malware authors, so t
  12. I joined this forum when I found that had attached to a post a 7z file with a malware installer. I thought by registering it would give you the privilege to download it. So, do I need to have any title ar anything like that to download attachements? I hope I posted it at the correct place.
  13. I've got several machines (but still a very small % overall) that have this 'execution result' when I do a scan under the Client Push Install tab. What is the remedy for this message?

  18. InstallMate is a program for building software installers. I believe it must have been used by someone to build a malware program, and therefore temporary installation files created by InstallMate have been since marked as malware for no good reason. I believe this is a false positive, and - for what it's worth - the maker of InstallMate also thinks so. They say they've been trying to contact Malware Bytes for weeks, but no response or action on your part has been taken. Please advise if this is a false positive. MBAM-log-2013-03-18 (12-20-02).txt
