  1. I keep my XP machine updated with the POS hack. So the problem I just started having with MB on my XP machine is the same problem anyone would have on an XP POS machine. Today, after updating with KB4056564-V2, KB4089453-V2, KB4095516, KB4095528, KB4103768, KB4101477, KB4130957, KB4131188 and KB4134651, MalwareBytes just crashed. UNinstalling with MB-clean and REinstalling various versions of MB did not work - all crashed. Any ideas? Thanks.
  2. I've installed 2 MalwareBytes Endpoint Protection on Windows XP Pro endpoints. On each, now everytime someone logs on, a File Explorer window opens to the Program Files folder for MalwareBytes. That's going to confuse the population of users (and entice experimentation). I've yet to figure out what's causing it! It's not in the Startup folder in the Start menu, nor did a registry search give me an obvious clue why it's happening. I found the entry to start the task tray icon, and that's working. Please help, I'd like to get rid of this annoyance.
  3. I am reviving a laptop not used in 3 years for someone who cannot buy anything. It is a Toshiba TE2000 running XP SP3. I removed the old version of MalwareBytes and now the installer crashes with a Runtime error 352:120 Invalid Floating Point Operation just after the English prompt. I have no idea why. This person will only have dialup and they need some kind of protection. So far, the computer is working fine. Can't get antivirus on it! I have run the MW_Cleaner, but there was nothing left to clean. Any ideas?
  4. I updated successfully to the new Malwarebytes consumer (premium) on M$-Windows XP SP3 32-bit, but Firefox ESR 45.9.0 and Thunderbird 52.3.0 would each fail to start, presenting the window offering to submit a crash report (to Mozilla). Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112 and SAS 9.3 both started and ran fine. I tried turning off Malwarebytes protection features, one-by-one, even turning off protection specifically for Firefox. The only way I could restore functionality for Firefox and Thunderbird was to remove Malwarebytes and reinstall Malwarebytes (premium). I
  5. I'm wondering if there's any chance that your "latest and greatest" V3.x program will work any better with my XP Pro? I don't want to install it and have it completely lock up my system, like it did a couple of months ago. I would appreciate an honest answer to this. Nathaniel, still hoping your program will get along with my legacy system.....
  6. My PC runs Windows XP Professional SP3 and Malwarebytes 3.2.2. Trying to install Mozilla Firefox 52.3, while running the installation exe file, after the files are extracted but before the installer begins, I get the error message “Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy. For more information open Event Viewer…”. Is this error message the result of Malwarebytes 3.2.2 setting a software restriction policy? I am using the default settings in Malwarebytes 3.2.2.
  7. On my good XP Pro SP3 machine, I just got a prompt to update to a better subversion of MB, from my 3.0.[something] to I think 3.2. But when I did the version update and rebooted, the MB service was blocked - got two error messages. Checked, and MB was not running at all. Uh-oh. So I completely UNinstalled MB and reinstalled from the 3.0.x install file I still had in Downloads from this past April. And updated the definitions the normal way. It's running again as version 3.0.6. Whew! But what's the problem between the new version and XP? Important info: 1) My XP is f
  8. I found out that my computer is too old, (two years old) for this new version. I wish they would have told me before I downloaded, not I can't get it to work at all. When I tried to download it, it says my malwareytes folder cannot be found in my registry. what can I do? Please help
  9. Using Malwarebytes Premium on a legacy XP Home machine. A dialog box pops up all the time saying "A new and improved version of Malwarebytes is available. Get the new version free of charge. Install Now." When I click on the "Install Now" button nothing happens. Throughout the day, the dialog pops up again. Frustrating to get the nagging popup that doesn't work. Does Malwarebytes have a direct link to the update since the dialog box button doesn't work? Thanks for your help

  12. hi there, Joe again. im currently using my mums computer, it was built by my dad who passed away years ago, its a really old machine, it runs windows xp sp3 and its incredibly slow and virtually unusable, im not sure if thats due to the age of the machine though or the amount of stuff my mum has probably built up from being naive online! MBAM just showed some PUPS, scanned in safe mode, but often MBAM and other programs wont even open (the computer seems alot quicker in safe mode) if anyone could help me get a definitive answer that'd be much appreciated! thanks Joe
  13. I have a windows XP SP2 hand-me-down computer that desperately needs some antivirus help as programs and files wont open unless in safemode. However, when I install Malwarebytes on launch it says: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000001d). Click on OK to terminate the program." I have no idea what to do and currently I can only use my computer in safe mode. FRST.txt and Addition.txt are attatched to this post. Any help would be much appreciated. FRST.txt Addition.txt

This morning after letting the computer to take its own time and wait between each action I accessed Malwarebtyes to try to run a scan assuming I was infected.

  18. Hello MalwareBytes staff and community, I have a reasonably big problem with a relatives PC at this time. The computer in question is a Dell Optiplex 755 running Windows XP Professional with 1GB RAM. The problem is that this computer is owned by a relative of mine that isn't very tech-literate and doesn't really understand the concept of computer viruses and how they damage computers. This computer was scanned recently by me one day before posting this thread and the computer is closing in at 1759 infections and, as you can tell, it's pretty severe. I tried running Malwarebytes on the

  24. I noticed your options for emailing questions no longer has the option of WinXP. Guessing this support will end with the MB 2.0!?!? W2K3 and WinXP, will they still be supported? Will you continue to support the older versions with daily updates and such? I realize the base program wont change, but regular updates will allow the SAME protection we have now, to continue.
  25. 8:30am PST. After spending a couple of days on a client's Zbot Cryptolocker removal and file restoration - the blocking of executables running from XP's %username%\Application Data\ folders and sub-folders was implemented through Group Policy. As a test I just now copied notepad.exe from c:\windows into the \application data\ folder. But, Malwarebytes blocked this and called Zbot Crypto on notepad.exe - and Quarantined. Next, Right Click notepad.exe and 'scan with malwarebytes' - no malware found? Next, Delete notepad.exe from windows\ and windows\system32\ and replace with known good
