  1. Good Morning W10 Home (Fully Patched), MS Office Pro Plus 2016, Malwarebytes (Premium) v3.8.3.2965 (Component Pkg v1.0.627, Update Pkg v1.0.12785, no exclusions), BitdefenderFree Prior to installing v3.8.3, the above config was stable for at least 16 months. During this time, Malwarebytes and BitdefenderFree coexisted fine, with no system problems and Malwarebytes went through at least one update. However, as soon as Malwarebytes updated to v3.8.3, an intermittent Outlook 2016 problem manifested. Basically, every few days, the Outlook 2016 Send/Receive process will hang partway

  7. Hi, I'd like to request help in being able to successfully complete a threat scan. I haven't been able to finish one in the past few versions. I'll come back to check on it and it seems to be close to the end but it freezes everything and I have to do a hard reboot. In the meantime I've used SUPERAntiSpyware with no issues. I attached the FRST and Addition txt files as attachments. Thanks, Sam Addition.txt FRST.txt
  8. Hi. The computer freezes up every few minutes so typing anything has become difficult. Software that I use for work remotely is behaving strangely (stalling, not playing) but it works fine for others who access the software (even using my account), so it's not a software issue.

  11. I have used MBAM for a long time now and have never had any troubles with it. However, ever since I downloaded the new version (the current version), I have had many issues. If in the slight chance that MBAM decides to cooperate with me, I will run a scan. However, usually half-way through the scan MBAM simply quits on me and shuts down completely. More recently, though, every time I try to start MBAM up, it does not let me click buttons. If I click on "Scan Now", the program does nothing. It was as if I had not even clicked anything at all. This is the same with "Settings, Scan, History,

  14. Computer freezes for long periods of time randomly and boots up and runs real slow. I've done a little cleaning and ran a registry program that a computer guy helped me with and it has helped a little. is it possible that my Avast or malwarebytes let something thru and should I also have a spyware program like spybot on here? Thanks for your help.
  15. Hi. I am a computer tech, web designer, and help businesses and individuals remove viruses and malware on their systems using a number of hi-tech software tools.

  17. Hi. When I try to run a quick/full scan, malwarebytes stops responding after a minute or two and basically freezes my computer. This doesn't happen in safe mode. I tried following the tips in section L in the FAQ several times but it still freezes. I use avira internet security 2012 so I figured that it might be interfering with mbam and added: mbam.exe, mbamgui.exe and mbamservice.exe as exceptions in both the realtime protection and system scanner but it doesn't seem to help. I'm a bit worried that it might be caused by malware as I got infected with the ukash virus recently but removed it b

  19. Hi, I am running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit on a Dell Dimension DXPO61 Intel Core 2CPU 6700@2.66Ghz with 4GB RAM. Malwarebytes has been hanging and freezing every time I run a scan lately. I have to do a hard re-start and the scan will not complete. I am also running Avast.
