  1. I noticed that the 08-Apr-2021 release notes <here> for the new Component Package v1.0.1251 update state in part: Further to Microsoft's July 2020 announcement at Windows Update SHA-1 Based Endpoints Discontinued for Older Windows Devices, does this mean that Malwarebytes plans to end support for Win XP SP3 and Vista SP2 users who use the legacy Malwarebytes v3.5.1-1.0.365? I just downloaded a fresh copy of the latest v3.5.1 installer (mb3-setup-legacywos- from https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3_legacy and it's currently dual-signed with both SHA-1 and SHA-256 digital certificates.
  2. I have a Vista SP2 OS and can't get my MB Premium v3.5.1-1.0.365 to download the new component package v1.0.374 (see Erix's update announcement <here>) . Every time I go to Settings | Application | Application Updates and click Install Application Updates it reports "Progress: No application updates are available". The download link at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3/ is currently offering me a v3.5.1.2522-1.0.365 installer. Should Win XP and Vista users expect to receive the v1.0.374 component package? Ransomware protection is not available on these older OSs and I also found a recent post added to the FAQ titled Malwarebytes Support for Legacy Windows XP and Vista Operating Systems announcing that "Users running Malwarebytes 3.5 on Windows XP and Vista will continue to receive on-going protection updates to keep safe from the latest infections. However these operating systems will no longer receive program upgrades,such as component packages or newer program versions, for new features." Does that means that product and component package updates for MB v3.5.1 are stopping immediately for XP and Vista, or should product and component package updates continue to be delivered until v3.6.x is released? ---------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.8.0 * Norton Security Premium v22.14.2.13 * MB Premium v3.5.1.2522-1.0.365
  3. I got a virus last week, and was getting help over at the techspot forums for it...Malwarebytes was one of the programs they recommended to help remove the critter I was infected with, and I was apparently clean. However, in spite of all the scans (malwarebytes, avast, bitdefender and eset online scanners, mcafee before I got rid of it in favor of comodo and avast.) now showing clean, Mbam is blocking several outgoing connections to a handful of IP addresses. I understand that in Vista or higher, I'd be able to tell which program was initiating the connections...Almost (but not quite..) enough to make me wish I was running vista. As it is, here are my DDS logs. My Malwarebytes trial is expired, and I do wish to purchase the full version, but I'm afraid to do anything that might risk my credit card info. I've been very careful to not do anything online that might expose any of my financial stuff since I got the virus, and want to be sure I'm clean before I do so. As you can imagine, this is a pain in, well, some region probably better left unmentioned, since I normally do bank and buy things online! dds.txt attach.txt
  4. Hi, my father recently got a virus on his computer, we used malwarebytes to get rid of it, and now his Start menu folders are empty. They still have the folder names, such as Itunes but most of them are empty. I have used unhide and have gotten some of them back by putting them back into the programs folder from the temp folder smtmp. This is the second time he has gotten a virus and it has removed his icons. we wern't able to restore the start menu shortcuts before my father erassed all the temp files. I beleive that the only way to get them back is to do it manually, and thats ok. I just wanted to know how to do it, because my father would like to have all of them back. The computer is running windows XP, SP3 with all current updates, Has Vipre Antivirus, and Malwarebytes Pro. any help would be appriciated. Da Bear.
