From https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/255169-win7-system-hijacked-through-firefox/?do=findComment&comment=1352928: Good question. https://www.malwarebytes.com/products/ positions Malwarebytes Browser Guard as supplemental to desktop security and mobile security. However there's a long tradition of people assuming that a desktop solution will be comprehensive, so I suspect that: many readers will not page down – many people simply do not discover Malwarebytes Browser Guard. From the blog post Browser Guard combats privacy abuse, tracking, clickbait, and scammers | Malwarebytes Labs: – quite verbose (five paragraphs, 163 words) followed by a large animated GIF. In retrospect it might have been better to have an unambigous "Yes" plus a link to relevant product information. However … … the product page https://www.malwarebytes.com/browserguard/ does not mention that it can/should be installed alongside desktop or mobile solutions. This page might benefit from a simple table – not too verbose – that lays out the additional protection when Malwarebytes Browser Guard is installed alongside a desktop or mobile solution. No mention of Malwarebytes Browser Guard at https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/ or https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium/. ☑ https://www.malwarebytes.com/chromebook/#cms-section-2 does recommend installing the extension. The press release Malwarebytes Press Center - News & Events | Free Malwarebytes Browser Guard Combats Privacy Abuses, Tracking, Clickbait, Unwanted Ads and Tech Support Scammers: described Malwarebytes Browser Guard as a comprehensive browser security solution did not hint that the solution is supplemental (to desktop and mobile solutions). Side notes No RSS or XML feed for https://press.malwarebytes.com/ or https://blog.malwarebytes.com/. This can make it quite difficult for people to catch up on things. UX: the LOAD MORE button at https://blog.malwarebytes.com/ is unnecessarily far from the foot of the page, so I can't simply key End before using the button. It's necessary to key Page Up after going to the end. The product page describes Malwarebytes Browser Guard Premium but there's no such product (it's free, not premium).
All: I have been asked by a member of the DisplayLink support team, a tech solutions provider for (among things) USB-dock based graphics display, hot desking and other peripheral support, to share information with Malwarebytes, its users and, specifically, the Malwarebytes support team, regarding issues/conflicts that I experienced between the latest Malwarebytes for Windows software and the latest DisplayLink for Windows drivers and software; as well as to share the solution/steps that I came up with and discovered to solve my issue. I note that I am currently (i) a Malwarebytes premium subscriber (running Malwarebytes for Windows 22.214.171.124), and (ii) a DisplayLink software user (specifically, "DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Windows 9.3 M0 drivers") with a USB 3.0 "Plugable UD-3900 Dual Display Universal Docking Station". The specific request from DisplayLink appears in its forums (in a response to my own "How To"-type posting) here (and/or at the top of page 2): https://displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=64896&goto=newpost; and, as evidenced by the posting itself, a member of DisplayLink's tech support team (named Alban) would like to work together with Malwarebytes' team on fixing the below-described issue. The material substance of both my issue and the posting that I left in the DisplayLink forums is cut and paste hereinbelow (here’s the original link, with my post at the bottom of “page 1”: https://displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=64896) ADDITION TO THE ABOVE: (18) Reinstall Malwarebytes. As an added measure, and whether or not this is superfluous or necessary is totally up to you: leave the "enable self-protection module early start" option (in advanced security settings) unchecked, as enabling this setting specifically "...changes the order of services and drivers associated with your computer's startup" (see the MB for Windows User Guide here: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3564), and you want (or, at least I want) the DisplayLink "dlcdcncm" ethernet adapter driver for the USB dock loaded early on in the PC's startup process so that the internet (using ethernet, not WiFi) works right away at the Windows login screen (and during your boot process).
