  1. Good Morning, My previously registered MWB-3 has reverted to Free. Unable to enter an ID and key in [Activate Licence] - only [Exit] and [Purchase] are clickable - middle option greyed-out and unreadable. Regards Cheemag
  2. Hi guys. you can consider for the antimalware starts with the system in the free version , once you completed the 14 days off, and stay icon on the taskbar?
  3. I use malwarebytes 3 [home] premium and am happy with it, but I would feel a little safer if I had another antimalware program, obviously one that is compatible with mbam. I was using MS Security Essentials on my Windows XP system and it actually found a virus that mbam did not, or at least did not tell me about [perhaps MSSE stopped it before mbam had a chance]. I have Windows Defender, of course, on my W8.1 system, but apparently it has been disabled. I have tried Avira, but consider it too obtrusive. AVG appears incompatible. Avast seemed OK on my XP system, but I have not tried it on W8.1. In short, I am hoping to get some advice as to which free antimalware program the experts at this forum would recommend. Thank you, ralatmby [Robert Leeper]
  4. 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?
  5. New free version 3 adds lots of components that I don't want for on-demand scanning. While the previous version was very user-friendly, this one expects constant Internet connection, leaves a service and a try icon running, and no doubt has other problems I haven't discovered yet. I'm running Windows 7 SP1. I've used Malwarebytes free for years as an occasional on-demand scanner to supplement my less capable real-time scanner, especially after engaging in potentially risky behavior like downloading new Subaru GPS map updates from an Eastern-European company. Last night I ran the previous version and asked for a database update. (I prefer to do this manually.) Of course it installed the new version, and I had to ask again for a current database (not so obvious how to do that now, since it doesn't show the date/time stamp). Then I ran a scan (overnight, with my Internet unplugged for better security). When I came back in the morning, I could not close the program because it kept throwing up new warning boxes complaining about no Internet access. (Apparently all it wanted was to check for a newer database.) I had to use Task Manager to shut it down, and even then there were a tray icon and a service still running that I had to kill manually. Looking more carefully at the settings, I could not find any way to disable automatic database checks or an apparently scheduled scan for one month hence. I'm still not really sure, given that the service was still running, whether it was doing on-demand scanning in the background or not. Further, I'm not even sure that there aren't other traces of the software still running but hidden from me (like malware?). Of course I may be missing some settings or other ways to control Version 3. Perhaps one of you can fill me in on how to achieve what I want from the new version? Bottom line -- none of this is what I want in an on-demand scanner. It appears the company is trying to make the free version so annoying as to force people to subscribe to the full version, but they are more likely to drive me away entirely! -- JClarkW
  6. I'll start by noting that this issue does not exist on one machine, but several machines which are all on the same domain. However, not every machine on the domain has this issue. The machines all use either Windows 7 or Windows 10. Malwarebytes does not freeze. What happens is at some point during any point after scanning "startup items" the scan will suddenly appear stuck as the "number of objects scanned" will stop increasing. The scan timer will keep ticking the entire time, but no progress is being made. I can pause the scan, and when I resume the scan there is no change in progress. The graphic with the spinning green arrows keeps going as normal even with no progress being made. I can let the scan keep going all night, and when I come back the next day the scan will still be stuck at the same spot as before. Upon finally hitting cancel, the scan acts like something is happening, but nothing ever happens. I am forced to go into task manager and end process on "malwarebytes service" in order to perform another scan. I am able to navigate through all of the other various menus within the program during a scan, etc. The scan is never stuck on the same file, file type, etc. Sometimes it will sit on "Scanning startup items" or "scanning file system" or during "registry items" or even during "heuristics analysis", but the number of objects scanned does not increase. The only way Malwarebytes can complete a scan is by going to the custom scan menu, choosing the custom scan option, and unchecking "Scan Startup and Registry settings." I can deselect all other options other than startup and registry settings, and the scan will become stuck during "heuristics analysis". So far I am still able to complete a threat scan on three different machines out of many that cannot. All machines can complete a scan by unchecking startup and registry settings from the scan. One of these three machines is running Windows 7, while the other two are running Windows 10. Windows and all other programs are up to date. I've tried excluding as well as completely uninstalling and purging the antivirus since that is the only program other than Windows/Microsoft office/adobe reader that is consistent between all machines (removing any or all of these programs does not change the outcome either), but that did not change the outcome of the scan. The antivirus has since been reinstalled. I'm running out of ideas. Any ideas and help is appreciated. I have tried using 3.2 beta version as well, and there is no change in the outcome of the scan. mb-check-results.zip

    Best Free Full Protection Anti Virus?

    What is the best FREE full protection anti-virus out there?
  8. Greetings. I was wondering if the option to scan for rootkits is supposed to be accessible for free users. No matter what I do, it still shows as disabled in the reports. Summary.txt MB-CheckResults.txt
