  1. It would be great to have a version 3.x without all the extra things many of us don't want, such as the anti-virus, exploit, ransomware protection. It's sad to see such a great product going the way that has killed every other software that has added in so much bloatware. I also see that us using the 2.x version will be forced to use the 3.x version at some point. I tried the 3.x version and I said no way do I want all this extra bloatware. When my license expires in August 2017 If an option is not given to not install all the unwanted extras, I don't see a reason to continue with the paid version. I know there are boxes to uncheck to not have them running, but then it constantly tells you that they are turned off. No thank you. Every computer that comes in for repair I have recommended to them to purchase Malwarebytes. That will stop if the user is not given a choice. I understand that you are only trying to help the consumers from the bad things. Forcing unwanted software is not the way to do it and keep customers returning.
  2. Dear Malwarebytes Community~ First, thanks so much for reading this post. I appreciate everyone here, and all the voluntary time that each and every one of you contribute to this forum. I've ran into some issues with my browsers (Chrome 32.0.1700.76 m, IE 11, Firefox 26.0, Opera 12.16) on my Windows 8.1 Machine; they continuously are being redirected to "http://search.yahoo.com/?type=599486&fr=spigot-yhp-ch" upon start-up. As you can see, there is some information even within the URL that indicates who the culprit is (Spigot). That being said, I've done some research and concluded that in fact, this software is installed as bloatware through the newer version of µTorrent (uTorrent). I'm not sure it BitTorrent has the bloatware or not but both are owned by the same parent company, so I'm assuming that BitTorrent does also. There is another Topic that covered this topic already located here: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=131286. I was unable to amend any comments to the bottom, so I created this new topic instead. I followed all the suggestions in the other Topic and I've attached my log files from the suggested software scans using: RogueKiller 64AdwCleanerJunkware Removal ToolWould someone be willing to take a look at the attached files and point me in the right direction for removal of this annoying software? Thanks so much in advance everyone. Warmly, Zacchaeus RKreport0_S_01232014_081003.txt JRT.txt AdwCleanerR0.txt
