  1. I’m not familiar with the new feature named "Security Advisor" but however I’d be more happy to reporting software problem to Malwarebytes : ) # problem 1 : Malwarebytes not detect Browser Guard as already installed # problem 2: Malwarebytes version 4 UI takes a few bit time to be opened the one that I need to resolve is that Malwarebyte’s Security Advisor says "Wi-FI connection is not secure" so how do get this fixed up ?
  2. Hi please help I started using malwarebyte today as premium user However it detected a site and block it. I need to use this site urgently. I has allowed the site on malwarebyte but then I can access the web but cannot load any content. I tried in firefox, it happened the same. I tried on chrome and it doesnt even allow me into the site. What is wrong with malwartebyte? Finally I've got to turn the malwarebyte off but still cannot load website it has broken permanently
  3. Now hear me out. I dont think Malwarebytes is being lazy. They just need time to fix there products. But every single time i use the Defense Guard in incognito Pages refuse to Load. Like stuck on it for a Long time before it can redirect. AND THATS WHAT IM JUST READING OFF OTHER PEOPLE WITH THE SAME COMPLANTS! Its just Incognito tho. Google without Incognito is Perfect whlie Incognito cant load at all. Malwarebytes needs to look into this. A lot of people are having these types of problems. This is why you dont get a Product when Released. You get it after a Whlie when most problems and Hacks with it are Patched. Please someone help me dear god.
  4. This is probably a stupid question but I'll ask. I just bought a Dell laptop and have only had it a week or so. Have had nothing but problems with it and Dell keeps telling me it's because of Malwarebytes. I've had Malwarebytes Premium for years and love it. The new laptop had the free trial version of McAfee and I had Dell remove it. They say your not suppose to have more than one anti-virus in Windows 10. I didn't think Malwarebytes was an antivirus only for malware. Has anyone else had this issue? I want to install a free antivirus but I'm not sure which one and afraid to try anything. I think Windows 10 has Windows Defender but is that enough along with Malwarebytes? thanks for your help!
  5. I've been trying to remove malware in my computer for days now but I can't seem to completely get rid of them I can't even download malwarebytes, I've deleted all the Untrusted Certificates and I've deleted some in the trusted ones too cause I recognized the virus put it's self there. When I try to download malwarebytes I get Runtime error at 351:120 Could not call proc. Please help me i'm considering to dust the whole pc cause I can't get rid of these viruses
  6. Hi, I have a notification on my malwarebytes dashboard stating a 'new and improved version of malwarebytes is available' then an install button. I select the install but nothing happens, can anyone help?
  7. The latest update indeed fixed the problems I had. But ultimately I uninstalled MBAM completely because it was slowing down my machine too much.
  8. I am new to these forums although am a long time user of the home version of Malwarebytes. I downloaded the 3.0 pro version on my two PCs recently (Dell XPS 2750 and Windows Surface laptop both running Win10). I noticed immediately that the Dell machine slowed to a crawl during the Threat scans. A check of the Disk utilization showed that it was at 100% with MWB at the top of the list and so was the memory utilization, however I hardly noticed the scans running on the Surface which has less resources. Thinking that I had too many junk apps on the Dell, I cleaned out the app list, got rid of orphan registry entries, and defragged the disk, however that hasn't seem to have made any difference. The only thing I could think to do was to schedule the scans to run at 3am, but I would be interested in your opinion as to why I am seeing such a difference between the two PCs.
  9. First let me start by saying that I have been a long long time user of Malwarebytes, and have recommended it or installed it on many a users computer. But I must confess, this latest fiasco concerning the many bugs within version 3.0 and the 4 months it took to resolve, really has me doing a whole lot of soul searching. Yesterday, I installed the latest attempt to fix the problems, BETA CU4. So far, this is the longest I have been able to go without an error message, 26 hours..WooHooo !! A quick word to the wise, make sure before you attempt to try the above Beta out, you know your software key, because you will have to completely remove any prior versions from your system before you install the Beta. A simple reinstall will not work. So, here's my point to my post, and I'd like to hear other user opinions as well as Malwarebytes employee comments including @RubbeR DuckY : Just about every major Anti-Virus solution available today provides malware, ransomware, and malicious website protection, what makes Malwarebytes unique anymore? What if anything, does one gain by ditching their AV software in favor of Malwarebytes, if the AV software they already own has the same protection? Is Malwarebytes really a true substitute for an AV product, does Malwarebytes have any independent AV test lab results? Do they have any head to head comparisons with the major AV suppliers? Why does Malwarebytes take such as large amount of memory to run, when compared to the AV leaders such as Kaspersky and others? And now, in light of recent news that signatures and heuristics aren’t enough to stop ransomware anymore, where does that leave Malwarebytes, and the other AV solutions? See these articles: https://www.sonicwall.com/docs/why-you-need-a-sandbox-to-stop-ransomware-technical-brief-24900.pdf and https://www.sonicwall.com/docs/solution-brief-putting-a-solid-sandbox-in-place-technical-brief-24826.pdf Granted, these are concerns that may be more for the business user, but it's only a matter of time before all computer users will be affected or should I say infected.
  10. Hello, I know that many people are having problems after downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on Windows 10 computers. You will try to run the program and it will give you an error message. If you're savvy enough to go into task manager, the process will be there but nothing will happen. This error could be due to a corrupt file when downloading the program, it could be due to an antivirus conflict, or it may have been due to encrypting the hard drive with bitlocker or truecrypt. Here is how to fix this: Go to your command prompt. (windows key, type 'cmd' , ctrl +shift +enter) - or Right click on 'command prompt' and select 'run as administrator' Type in 'cd' and then the location of the malware bytes file (it's usually under program files). For example: cd c:\program files (86x)\malwarebytes anti-exploit\ Type 'mbae-svc -install' after the extension. For example: c:\program files (86x)\malwarebytes anti-exploit\mbae-svc -install\ This should start working immediately. I was frustrated that a program I paid for was not working so I took a few minutes to play around with it. You're Welcome. -Lando.
  11. Hi, Is anyone else experiencing problems wit some applications since a Malwarebytes update from last week? I have about 20 machines that suddenly were acting up on Tuesday last week after an update was downloaded. An application (Deltek Vision) that runs a browser plugin on startup and downloads/executes some file from the users' local appdata folder causes 100% CPU utilization (Mbam processes/service showing with 99%) and staying there for a good 5 minutes but even after the application finally loads, it is very sluggish. I tried to exclude the specific path for hat application by policy but that was impossible as it includes the username and MBAM does not let me specify system varialbles such as %localappdata%. After excluding the local path from scanning it works normal but that opens a door for actual malware problems since the whole user path is now unprotected. Client version: So for now I am excluding the path "C:\Users" from being scanned but that seems counter productive - the application works normal but the whole user path is now unprotected. Is there anything in the updates that may have caused this? We mave not made any changes to our systems and the application in question has not changed but suddenly this happened after last weekend. Help .... Herbert
  12. Hi, I am writing to this forum in hopes that I can contact one of the malwarebytes developers. The reason I am writing is because I am blind and having a problem using malwarebytes which I don't think the usual technical support will have the knowledge to deal with, its also possible they might simply ignore any message I wrote to them on this topic but a public forum post is harder to ignore, I think this needs the attention of one of the malwarebytes developers. So in order to explain the problem I need to say how I use a computer. The answer is that I have a program on it called a screen reader this is able to read any text on the screen with artificial speech and allows me to use a wide variety of programs for pretty much anything a sighted user uses the computer for. So now that I have explained this I can explain the problem I am experiencing, its very simple, since malwarebytes was updated from v 1x to v 2x it has become completely impossible to navigate the program with any screen reader. I am unable to access the menu bar or any element of the gui, I would be very happy to help beta test new versions to help get this issue resolved, as having my computer protected is just as important for me as it is for anyone else on this forum, with the added complication that at the moment I can't read any messages malwarebytes gives me, I can't get it to scan my computer or remove infections the program is essentially useless to me as I presume its protecting me but I can't do anything with it. I have payed for the premium version of malwarebytes ages ago before it became inaccessible to screen readers, so I would really appreciate it if this issue can be looked at urgently. I am happy to offer any assistance or information to the developers I can that might help them fix this.
  13. So this morning I went to run malwarebyes because I update and scan every day or so, and it started up fine, but then I got a blue screen which made my computer restart. (I'm on windows 8 by the way.) After looking the blue screen up, and finding out it was a memory error, I re-started my scan, but it wouldn't open, no matter how many times I tried. So I finally tried chameleon, and I tried all 13 and none of them worked. So I thought I'd try uninstalling and re-installing. However after all of that, it still wouldn't open. So I uninstalled again and tried installing using chameleon, and again it didn't work. I'm not sure if this is something new that is harder to work around of if I'm doing something wrong. Please help, I'd like to upgrade to premium next paycheck, but I'm not sure if this doesn't get fixed. Thank you.

  15. Hello, I'm new in this forum. I have problems with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware When I upgraded my OS from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8.1 Pro (without Media Center), mbam simply stopped working. I tried to uninstall and re-install but the installation wizard give me some errors during the installation. When the installation finishes, mbam don't start. Finally, I tried Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and it works perfectly... Why I can't install the newer (and supposedly better) version of mbam but an older version works perfectly????
  16. Hi I scanned my computer a few days in a row.Done in safe mode and I can not get rid of this virus: Files Detected: 2 C:\System Volume Information\_restore{21AFBE96-963E-43A6-BC96-56EC1BCCD20D}\RP449\A0234068.exe (Worm.Koobface) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.C:\System Volume Information\_restore{21AFBE96-963E-43A6-BC96-56EC1BCCD20D}\RP449\A0234067.exe (Worm.Koobface) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. Does anyone know what this is about!!??
  17. Hello! I don't understand Microsoft logic. To increase security, the company recommends to use limited user account. But this has led to problems with WGA Notifications. The problem arises because the validation tool writes data to data.dat file during validation process. This file located at the following folder: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%/Application Data/Windows Genuine Advantage/Data Limited user account can't access to this file. Therefore WGA incorrectly flagged my WinXP as non genuine. Also WGA Notifications connects to Microsoft servers every time when Windows starts. Of course, I immediately uninstalled this "important security update" from my system for privacy reasons. To me, WGA Notifications is spyware. That is the reason why I use DropMyRights instead of limited user account. For more information about DropMyRights, please, read these articles: DropMyRights Every Windows XP user should drop their rights Windows Users: Drop Your Rights For more information about WGA Notifications, please, read these articles: Genuine Advantage is Microsoft spyware Windows Genuine Advantage is still genuinely bad Get all security patches without WGA nightmares Windows Anti-Counterfeit Tool requires loosening PC security Windows Genuine Advantage falsely accuses millions I strongly suggest to stay away from this "important security update"!
  18. Well, my laptop has been running slow for awhile now, and while I figured it was a virus, Microsoft Security Essentials didn't seem to find anything. Finally, I just wiped everything clean, formatted the drives and re-installed my OS. About a week went by and the problem crept up again so needless to say I was pretty upset. A friend recommended Malwarebytes so I figured I'd try it before I went out and bought a new PC, just in case I could salvage this one (it still runs games pretty well). I ran the full scan and it turns out that I'm infected with a Trojan, specifically FakeAlert, which would account for the lack of performance from my computer. I looked into it a bit and it's apparently supposed to try and scam you with redirects and such but I've experienced no such thing, even before the hard-drive wipe and re-installation (I did not back up and restore my files by the way, Steam is wonderful about switching PCs). Anyway, after the scan I chose to restart the computer and delete the quarantined file. For safe measure, I figured I would scan the system again to make sure there wasn't anything else going on. Unfortunately, I have now performed the full scan four times and I end up with the same results every time, with the same exact infected file. I will post the most recent log below, hopefully it's correct. The main problem for me is the fact that this computer is acting up so terribly, it's impossible to run any slightly intensive program and even videos on Youtube are laggy. Any help would be very, very appreciated.
