  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 3.2.2.2029 (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 3.2.2.2029 and reinstall Malwarebytes 3.1.2.1733 (premium). I upgraded Malwarebytes to the latest version on a Windows 7 laptop. It works fine, but does not have Thunderbird. Thanks for any suggestions
  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 fully updated using the POS hack. (If you don't know what that is by now, don't try it at home!!) 2) My AV is Avast, but Avast and MB have been playing nice for some time now. And Avast usually does not cause error messages like the one I describe above for the new MB. 3) I also use CryptoPrevent, which prevents .exe files from running in, for example, AppData folders. It also stops some other stuff that ransomware likes to do. Might that be the problem? if yes, is there a specific MB installation folder or file I should whitelist for the next time? Thanks, y'all. Happy Fourth and Fireworks from the good 'ole USA !!
