(i have checked for update drivers for my specific headsets if didn't even have any)
  2. Hi, I have Norton Security installed and running on my computer. Can I have Malwarebytes simultaneously runing on the same PC? Do you consider that this is a good idea? Because I am not an expert on cybersecurity, I would like to know your oppinion. Do both programs working together cover more harmfull cases than only one?' Maybe it is a bad idea? or Maybe not? Thank you very much in advance!😉
  3. Hi! We currently have the Kaspersky Endpoint Security and MalwareBytes Endpoint Security installed an 100 PC. Just bought the MB ENDPOINT PROTECTION AND RESPONSE and plan to migrare all users as soon as I learn the basics. My question is, Do you think is safe to keep only MalwareBytes and not an Antivirus software? Sales representative said is OK but would like your opinion. I don't see the ANTI-RANSOMWARE module to be installed so I understand is not needed with this version. Thanks in advance!!! Best Regards
  4. Hi, AFAIK, conventional wisdom used to say that a computer should only use one antivirus software, because it might interfere with another. Does this still hold true? I'm thinking about subscribing to Malwarebytes Premium. Thanks, mac b
  5. Hi there! Throughout the past few months, I've had problems running my Win7 Professional 64-bit PC rig properly. The problem showed as intermittent freezing of the whole operating system every now and then, let's say once in an hour or so, for around 5-15 min at a time. Meaning; I can't click on anything from the task bar, the mouse cursor turns into the spinning circle (as in; waiting, waiting ...); everything that I click on or type is stored in some kind of a buffer that then gets "released" after the clog re-opens. I am running ESET Internet Security 2018 (the latest version; 12.0.27.0) as well as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium (the latest version as well; 3.6.1.2711) I have gone thru the problem on ESET's forums as well; https://forum.eset.com/topic/15962-eset-internet-security-updates-hang-up-as-well-as-sites-like-windows-update/?_fromLogin=1 Sorting out different possibilities within the last few months and I've indeed realized that it's ESET Internet Security 2018 and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro/Premium conflicting with each other. Turning off Malwarebytes actually solved the problem altogether. However, I went thru Malwarebytes' website to see all the listed components of MBAM that should be added to i.e. ESET's exclusion list, and that did NOT solve the problem. Now as I'm running Malwarebytes again, the freeze-up problem has also returned as usual. Disabling MBAM = no problems, no freeze-ups. The two software used to work just fine together before this summer. I've tried googling up the ESET+MBAM combo and potential pitfalls and tried to check that I've got them all in order. These problems didn't start until the autumn of this year, however. Before that, I had been running ESET+MBAM side by side without any problems. So, since I already have the exclusion list done, is there any certain modules in ESET that should NOT be enabled while MBAM is also running? I can't reply to the original thread on ESET's forums [see link above in this post] since the thread has been closed (and I did not receive any messages of anyone actually replying to me), and now I'm wondering what should I do next. The thing is that ESET and MBAM both detect i.e. realtime web threats differently. Throughout the past few years, both of the programs have caught up with potential threats in time, sometimes it's been MBAM, sometimes it's been ESET that has caught the lurking culprit. So, I really wouldn't want to start disabling real-time protection features too heavily. All help is kindly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. Hello, I come here to ask about my problem and what type of fix could I get. To start with, I'm currently running Windows 7 In an HP laptop with the safe mode. The issue started a couple weeks ago where I started to notice my pc was acting strangely, I downloaded Avast's free antivirus to try and fix the problem with a full scan. The problem was gone for like an hour then it came back again. I started to notice also that my pc, whenever I started it, had the automatic antivirus protection option disabled and I had to manually enable it, the pc started to run very slowly and the last couple days it began to show problems as strong performance slow downs and they came with some net disconnect issues, I'm not really sure if the performance issue can affect the wi-fi but usually the pc disconnected like a minute or two. However, I uninstalled Avast, and installed Bitdefender, the same issue is giving me problems and it's even stronger lately, I hope I can get an answer about this problem. PD: Whenever the slow downs start I can't even open the task manager or it takes a couple of minutes to show and sometimes, programs like the Bitdefender or Steam do not open.
  7. Hi, I currently have a valid license for malwarebytes for mac 3.0 and wanted to know if just having malwarebytes for mac 3.0 premium is enough to take care of all the security needs of a mac, or should i look for other antivirus to complement ? Does malwarebytes protect against phishing, malware url links and infected webpages or is it just an antivirus for mac , does it also include a firewall component?
  8. Is Malwarebytes Premium an antivirus aswell? Do I require a separate antivirus?
  9. Hi, i'm going to do a windows clean install and i have already analiced my pc with my antivirus and with malwarebytes, i have also used a couple of cleaners. malwarebytes found a couple o malwares but i have already removed they. ir order to be completely sure that there aren't any malware in my computer i was thinking in use a bootable antivirus (i think that a low level format will be to much time for the hdd of 1 tb, how much time do you think that it will need? its a good idea to do it?) i have never had a really bad malware in my computer and i have used antivirus from the first day but my question is: do you think that is a good idea to use a bootable antivirus? because since i'm going to format i wanted to be sure that my pc is totally clean. i know that there are rootkits that are almost invisible for the common security software. although i have my pc scanned and nothing was found, do you thing that a bootable antivirus could remove something that have not been found yet? or the only thing i can do is a low level format?
  10. 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!
  11. If someone can offer some helpful advice i would greatly appreciate it. I own paid subsricptions to McAfee, Webroot, Bitdefender, Malwarebytes 3, and now ESET, and all since October of 2017. Something is not right. Period. My computer keeps telling me its fine but after what ive been through i dont trust or believe it. I'll try to make this short but its difficult and this is was i believe to be true to my heart and its gonna sound crazy but idc at this point. So on Oct 7,2017 i got into bitcoin. I used Bittrex as my exchange. Well like 3 weeks later I found out that i was a victim of a phishing site for Bittrex. I was devastated. I kept wondering why things were different for me than my friend; passwords wouldnt save; ip not recognized. So submitted a form to google with pictures,screenshots, the whole nine yards. They took about 90 days to get back to me so in the meantime i made another google account ok, and got Mcafee. Microsoft as well, new account. They lock you out for 30 days to verify" btw. Anyways Mcafee remote accessed my computer and installed the software and rana virus remover right. like 3 weeks later still getting same thing so i decide to step it up a notch and buy webroot total protection. Again same thing started to happen. It was good for a few weeks then started acting up again. And when i say acting up i mean mostly my passwords; like nothing ever worked for more than a day! And typing glitches;and screen flickering here n there. So now im like ok? I'm paying good money here and still problems? it must be me, let me let a professional handle this. So i bought Bitdefender and spent almost $200 to remove, install, and set-up a whole anti-virus for me. They guy was on my computer all night for like 4 hours; Remote Access. BTW it was DEC 24, My Christmas present to myself lol. Anyways i was happy,i'm thinking wow! I got all my accounts, and i have many, protected and this runs so smooth on all my devices! I thought it was working. Until i started realizing very strange things. For one my windows was Not the same anymore. It was running as a developer and it had/has all these different settings that i never had before. I promise I felt like someone was on my computer with me all the time. I even covered my camera, cuz I felt uncomfortable leaving it on and it got so bad with my accounts that i ended up buying a new laptop only to find out that soon as I signed in to microsoft it started again. So now im sick!! My Acer is reseted/wiped out. My accounts are in the cloud somewhere with all my....everything! And i got a new Asus that's doing the same thing!! But this is where it gets even better. My Galaxy S7 started acting up. Doing all kinds of things on its own. And my Tab3. So just like my laptops i try to master reset it too and thats where things hit the fence. It was NEVER the same. Just like my laptop. New APK, SDK configurations; new build versions, new google play store, new samsung this n that. the FCC number wasnt the same as the box anymore. and the software was literally written and peronalized by someone who sure a heck wasn't me. I even went to T-mobile to show them how my phone wasn't even letting me master reset it; boot was so weird looking, and they couldnt event tell me what they were looking at. Geek squad at best buy too. So they said it might be the "wanna cry virus". Some clever ass ransomewear, and tbch thats exactly how i felt at this point. Like crying. So i did some research on it and the geek squad advised me that basically im f***ed. "Get all new devices and change ur network and all that" is what i was told. sooooo guess what comes next? yup! I did just that. Changed my modem, Router, changed my username, password, already got new computer, now a new phone ughh. Got the Samsung Note 8 and Alcatel tablet. Now i have 2 laptops, 2 phones, 2 tablets; Stressed and frustrated i literally brought in the new year unable to access ANY of my google,microsoft, samsung, or school accounts. My life is being taken over by something and i couldnt understand why me? i have nothing! So i thought the nightmare was over with the new devices and new accounts but sadly it continued. I was done. I said f**k it. If i lost everything i might as well go ham myself and try to firgure out what happened or why? So I started to google every single file i thought was suspicious and educate myself on all this developer stuff i would have never learned on my own, and i realized that i had 24 hours to make changes to my accounts before they rested again. Literally I spent my days and nights just changing settings and taking screenshots and backing up whatever i could because the next day it would be gone or not granted access. Well in my investigating I come accross Emails sent by "me" that werent me, accounts opened up that i never opened, I found my old acer running programs all on its own like a ghost was on it, android studio, developer apps; so so much stuff. My google activity had tabs from samsung site requesting my device specs and software downloads. So i came to the conclusion that this isn't a dam virus, someone is remotely accessing and controlling my devices! I was so fricking mad i took whatever files i had copied at some point and posted them up on a blog screaming for help and notfiying google that someone was doing this to me, called the FTC and filed an identity theft complain. And of course next day i came accross a file here in malwarebytes which was an all data file or xml file, something like that i cant be sure with all the files i saw my apologies, but the person was talking about something they found and were in the process of fixing. And so last but not least this is the purpose of me posting this.... I truly believe that someone from logmein, teamviewer, fastsupport, bitdefender, blockchain, or Microsoft took advantage of and violated my rights when they remote accessed my computer and satyed on my accounts. I believe that the reason they did it was to take my authentication certficates and windows information to obtain private keys that no one would ever have access too unless i gave them access, to steal my crypto wallets. I also believe that this person is a highly skilled developer who thought he could pull a fast one on me, underestimating my persistence and will power to not let things go, and that when he realized i was on his tail and that i have no means to stop until i expose him, got nervous and began to wipe out everything that traced back to him. I know for a fact that he used my microsoft account to access my google accounts, which gave him access to my network account and samsung accounts, and that everything i went through was just to cover his tracks. I know it sounds crazy but this is what i believe and i believe i got a crap load of proof that what im saying is in fact true. Now i just need the right individual who could make sense of whatever data i have collected becasue I surely cannot. But i do know that i got something. Now My phones are starting to come back to normal. My passwords havent been resetting so much. I do have access to my laptop but its still a huge mess and im afraid that im running out of time before things "fix themselfs" and all the evidence is gone. I want to catch whoever did this. I want to stop them from taking advantage of people and stealing from them. Im a mother of two, i work 6 days and go to school at night and i dont have money to buy new devices and phone and all of that!! Its terrible that someone could be so disgraceful. Right now i have malwarebytes and ESET but i need help! I need so much help setting up my computer to a normal device like it always was and i need help verifying what these files are and if they are wrong doing. Maybe im just paranoid. Or maybe i just got a bad virus or something. I hope that there's a perfectly good explanation for this, i do. But I just have a funny feeling that this is bigger than that. I have seen and went through too much to believe otherwise. So Please can someone offer me their advice or guidance. I dont have windows 8 anymore. i have windows 10. the build is different now that it was when this all happened and like i said i feel hes trying to erase everything. I called and some of my accounts have noooooo record of me anymore and i have stacks of papers saying otherwise! its crazy. please....someone
  12. Do I need to keep these other apps? With the addition of the Malwarebytes..
  13. Hi everyone! This is only my second post ever on this forum, and I am not very experienced when it comes to antiviruses and antimalware. My question is, is Malwarebytes Free (for me, it is version 3.3.1) good enough to protect my computer on its own? Should I upgrade to premium or download another antivirus?
  14. Malwarebytes Endpoint security, on its webpage, says that antivirus protection is made obsolete. Is that so? We have w7 pcs. Can we really delete our antivirus programs when we add Endpoint Premium? Thank you.
  15. Hi Guys, can I use mb3 on my IPhone 6 or has the phone already got built in protection.
  16. Wondering if Malwarebytes for Mac 3.0 scans external hard disks. I've heard that antivirus programs should not be allowed to scan external hard drives, since they can break the links in Time Machine that record changes. Thank you!
  17. Someone recently who works in the computer industry as a programmer told me that antiviruses aren't really needed and he thought they were a waste of space for users who know what they're doing. He added that all they do is take processing power and that if a virus is going to infect you it will do so without the AV doing anything. I just want to raise this point because I am considering removing my Avast subscription and if it actually would be ok to do so. Before launching any suspicious files I test them in various online/local sandboxes to ensure they do not infect my system since I bank on it aswell as game. I know what I am doing and have spotted infected files before such as ransomware and RATs which prevented me having an infection, etc. And sure, online sandboxes are not reliable due to detection however this is the same for an antivirus. Realtime protection is meant to prevent the execution of malicious files based on their signature. Now, if a black hat is to write a good trojan, that trojan is 100% to be encrypted meaning it will fly through the detection and launch. It might be scanned by others thus distributed to the companies for signature analysis which would note the signature and add it to the database but that would be after a certain amount of time. For me personally, I never use my AV. I analyse files myself using tools so I know not to launch the file if I find anything malicious. Should I remove Avast! or not? Keep in mind I have like 8 types of protection services such as firewall, web shield, file shield so it takes up ALOT of CPU power which could be used to speed up my system.
