  1. My windows 10 Microsoft Surface laptop has recently stopped working, something I suspect is caused by a virus. The other day I lent my laptop to my brother so that he could work remotely from it. He downloaded Anydesk, as well as OpenVPN (according to him, he just googled them and downloaded the first link). He was recently notified by his work that their network was infected with a virus which case from his machine. As soon as he told me this, I downloaded Avast and ran a scan, but from this point my laptop kept freezing any time I tried to install, uninstall or run any kind of antivirus s
  2. I keep getting a URL:Mal threat secured notification from my Avast antivirus software. When I run I scan using Avast, it picks up no virus, malware or suspicious threat. When I run a scan in malware bytes it also picks up no malware, viruses or threats. How do i remove this? I am running mac. The threat keeps coming up as being from the following links i have i have never been on before: upd-pct.info/ or pctupd.info/ . I did some research on this, and found out it is coming from PopcornTime which is a P2P app for watching movies. I immediately deleted the app and all its contents but the pop
  3. So ive got this issue where, everytime i open my league of legends client, its suddenly crash and detects the svchost.exe as a mawalre, even tho i delete it many times it just restore automatically. thanks in advance
  4. Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in. This is my first time posting on these forums. I was wondering if there's a way to confirm if a USB flash drive is free of viruses, malware, and/or ransomware? I used this USB flash drive back on Feb. 23rd with a computer (Windows XP) that was a part of a network. The server was infected with Ransomware and all the files on the shared network were encrypted on Feb. 25th. Supposedly nobody used any of the computers on the network on the 25th, so I suspect that the infection happened earlier and activated the Ransomware at a later da
  5. Every time I open chrome, Avast blocks a website named Deloton.com. I've been doing some research and it seems it is a bowser hijacker that injects adds into your bowser. I'm glad avast is able to block it, but how do I remove it completely? Both Malwarebytes and Avast detect nothing. I attached Avast notice of block and the requested logs. Thanks.

  6. Hello. Long time Malwarebytes user; I love your program. That said, this detection seems a bit off. At my latest scan, just after updating Avast, I recieved a notification that: C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\gf2engine\reganalyze.dat contained Spyware.Pony. It seems kind of a strange place for Spyware to pop up, especially Pony, as it is primarily distributed via malicious Emails, and I practically never use my Email except to confirm account registration on reputable websites. Unfortunately, when trying to restore the file to upload it with my log, Malwarebytes gives a rather unhe
  7. All 3 of my computers were affected with no protection (or disabled) on MB. Yet there were other strange things going on as well. Not sure if it was a Malwarebytes Premium or Avast free update that started it all. I didn't have high resource usage, but couldn't open programs, etc. Avast ui wouldn't load and upon repair it said Malwarebytes was an infection. Also, just recently I started getting the MB couldn't load the rootkit driver. I have what I believe was the latest updates package 1.0.3804 - v3.3.1.2183 - components 1.0.262 (MB Premium) - for windows 7 64-bit Using Revo uninsta
  8. Avast AV has apparently bought a number of rivals such AVG and also programs such as CCleaner. From my recent experience, it would seem that the free version of Avast AV disables or blocks Malwarebytes Web Protection. Here is the experience I had. (1) I updated CCleaner (the free version). (2) A question popped up, asking if I would like to install Avast. I declined, i.e. un-ticked the box. My preference was denied and Avast Free was nevertheless installed. (3) I tried to uninstall Avast, but could not get it completely uninstalled. (4) After doing some research on the inte
  9. Hi, I've just recently been getting the error: progid atkexcom axdata every start-up for a week now. I've scanned with AVAST Boot Scan and it detected a corrupted registry. Sadly, I wasn't able to record this. However, I've spent hte last hour scanning with Malwarebytes and the same things keep popping up. They have been deleted and quarantined over and over again, but they keep coming back. Everytime they were quarantined, Chrome closes. Here is the Report: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 12/9/17 Scan Time: 7:52 PM Log File: 8032dc26-dd1a
  10. Our website uses Sucuri's Web Application Firewall and Sucuri Website Monitoring with a clean bill of health, yet is on the blacklist. We had also experienced this with AVAST back in September. We have also updated Sucuri support about the issue. Please delist from the blacklist IP: 192,124,249,108 Host: hxxp://hamiltondiocese.com malwarebytes-report.txt
  11. Good afternoon, I'm running Malwarebytes Premium version as anti-malware and Avast Internet Security (non-free) on my computer as anti-virus. Since last week, MWB is sending notification of blocked outgoing connection (without mentioning any program) to the same IP address once per day and everyday at the same time. The address is I'm not surfing the internet or doing anything specific when it happens. When I search the internet it says the corresponding hostname is vpn-gw-rod-003.lux0-alt.ff.avast.com so it seems related to Avast. What bugs me is t
  12. I clicked on a link to a news article on Yahoo and my Avast Anti-virus went off saying it aborted a connection with it because it was infected with the above trojan. I scanned with both Avast and Malwarebytes and nothing came up. I would go to the Avast forums but I trust you guys more. Am I infected and just not know it, or am I safe and this is a false positive? Can we run some tests? Here's the malwarebytes scan log: Malwarebytes www.malwarebytes.com -Log Details- Scan Date: 9/26/17 Scan Time: 7:17 PM Log File: f57f60a1-a2a3-11e7-adf0-0090f5f744dc.json Admini
  13. Keep in mind exclusions are not supposed to be necessary but I recommend them. Better safe than sorry. For Malwarebytes.
  14. Scan indicated Avast as MALWARE. Question: Is Avast competent & acceptable virus protection ? Thank U
  15. For the past month, Avast has been blocking threats in Chrome, usually with the same log description as the screenshot I've attached. I did a scan with Malwarebytes and it couldn't find any threats so I decided to start a free trial to activate real-time protection. Now Malwarebytes constantly gives me notifications that it has blocked redirects/pop-ups from www.tradeadexchange.com and popcash.net. I reinstalled Firefox and immediately upon opening it, Malwarebytes blocked the redirect so I don't believe this a Chrome issue. I have tried disabling Adblock/Ublock from Chrome but it has not made
  16. Just to report that I've been running MB Premium for some while now on Windows 7 Home Premium x64, currently alongside Avast Free 17.4.2294 and CryptoPrevent Premium without any observable problems anywhere. All seems to run sweetly, and MB is performing a low priority manual scan as I complete this post without too much load on my very basic laptop processor. So thanks again to the Malwarebytes team.............
  17. I have Malwarebytes Premium 3.0.6 and Avast Free Antivirus. I understand that both have some similar functions, however both have different methods. Please: 1) What exactly are these similar and different functions that each software has? 2) Is out there any other software providing a security/protection function that both software don't? 3) Windows firewall is enough? Or a third-party is needed? Thank you!
  18. Hi everyone, My name is Ryan and I'm new to the community, and I'm coming to you all with some irritable reasons. I have had the most persistent malware infecting (I think only chrome - on Win 10) for the past 2 weeks with no avail. Currently I have used JRT, AdwCleaner, HitManPro, Malwarebytes and Avast. The last two never seem to detect anything, while the first three detect and delete, detect and delete, detect and delete... without permanently resolving my issue! I have removed all suspicious chrome extensions, reset my chrome several times, and even remain logged out of my chrome acc
  19. I'm currently running Malwarebytes Premium alongside Avast Free, currently at v. 17.4.2294 (build 3482.0). The two seemed to coexist happily and I've added exclusions to both programs - see this post for Porthos' excellent guide However, another problem has just surfaced for me - I carried out a repair install to Avast in the Add/Remove programs options to try to resolve some problems with the Software Updater Module and, when the repair had finished, got a message on the screen saying something like "Incompatible antivirus detected - Malwarebytes - we strongly recommend unins
  20. First of all, I have to say: I've never installed Avast, I always use Windows Defender (Windows 10). Now, I can explain the problem: Yesterday, I detected some problems in Google Chrome, so I decided to install Malwarebytes and scan my computer. As I supposed, it was infected, and I could solve the problem. However, when I opened the task manager today, I noticed that there is a new process, the one in the picture. I haven't installed anything yesterday but Malwarebytes, and this appeared today. I've searched it on some websites and it seems to be malware, but Malwarebytes ignor
  21. I was scrolling through youtube and avast notified me of an infection so I ran a full system scan and apparently had 29 infections. Then I ran malwarebytes and no infections were detected. I've read through other forums and it would most likely by a false positive or something but I just want to make sure. I've attached 2 photos of avast and malwarebytes.
  22. I recently downloaded Malwarebytes and then read that I still needed a virus program, so I downloaded and installed Avast. When I got ready to run Avast, it warned me that Malwarebytes was on my computer (it may have said it was currently running) and I should not use the two together as it might cause problems with my computer and programs. I noticed another user was using Avast with Malwarebytes and this made me wonder if it were okay to use Avast along with MB. Is there a better virus program you would recommend and could it be used with Malwarebytes?
  23. Hi guys, Here another false positive (screenshot). After the message appeared nothing was in the Quartine section and everything else worked-out furthermore. BR, Kaim
  24. Saturday I ran into a virus I can’t seem to get rid of. I noticed it directly as I got a popup about windows user account control had been disabled. I immediately cancelled everything, activated UAC again and did the following steps: - Uninstalled all new programs via control panel (almost 10) - Removed yessearches as the new homepage for browsers - Checked for addons in browsers = none - Updated and ran a scan on Spybot - Updated and ran a scan on Avast But the problem remained. Almost every program I start get this hu
  25. Which is a better antivirus overall? I'm trying to choose between trend micro maximum security and avast free antivirus.
