  1. Hi, I am very new to this. I am so happy I found your site. It detected over 2000 threats. 2 were identified as malware (Please see image) and all the others were PUP files (?). When malwarebytes prompted me to quarantine, I noticed the 2 identified as malware were not on the list. I proceeded with the process anyway and in the final report I did not see those 2 items. Does this mean it was never removed? How would I remove it if they weren't? Thank you, J
  2. I'm currently running Malwarebytes Management Console v1.7.0. For each client deployment, it picks up a large number of false positive PUM registry keys. The PUM registry keys are the same, but with slightly different ID for each computer, therefore, malwarebytes keeps picking up the same PUM registry key over and over again after each Quick Scan although the registry key has already been added to the Ignore List. My question is, is it possible to add registry keys to the ignore list using a wildcard? Take for instance the following registry keys. Instead of adding three separate registry keys, is it possible to use one registry key with a wildcard?

  3. I scanned my computer for malware and it only comes up with 1 "non malware" registry key problem but when I tell it to quarantine it, restart my computer, and rescan, it shows it again. It says its non malware but I want to remove it just to be safe because the fact that it doesn't go away worries me that it might be hiding something else. I had a similar virus before and got help on this site but I can't find the forum and when I tried to recover my password from my old account it wouldn't send me the email and I checked my inbox and junk.
  4. Hello, I just did a scan of my computer with malwarebytes this morning and it found two threats both called PUP.optional. Tweakbit, both with the type of registry key. Malwarebytes quarantined the threats and I permanently deleted them but I am still concerned. Upon googling the virus name it seems to be a bad one. Is there anything else I need to do and do you think it did anything harmful?
  5. Hello, I hope I'm doing this right. If I'm not, please tell me and I apologize. My computer is fast, not really any issues (except in the past but it's been resolved). Last december, my younger sibling tried installing something into my laptop and I had no idea she would do that. When I came home, my computer was infected by Conduit. I couldn't click on anything. All my icons were Adobe icons and I was freaking out. I don't remember what exactly I did but I was able to resolve the issue, use Malwarebytes and Norton, an Adware scanner, etc. I followed a lot of instructions from a Microsoft forum (Sevenforums? or something) and it worked. Everything seemed fine. Then I went through overheating/gaming issues. Thinking it was the virus attacking again, I took it to a computer specialist who scanned, opened it up, and cleaned it out, checked every component and it was fine. So my computer has been fine for 2-3 months now. The thing is, when I do my weekly scans for Malware, it sometimes (not always) finds Conduit. Just one. And I remove it and I restart my computer. I probably find it once a month from those 3-4 weeks I scan my computer. I stay away from malicious websites, I have my sister on a parental control account when she uses it (I had no idea I could do that before...), I dont download music for free or torrent, and the last thing I downloaded on my computer was oovoo which I made sure that it didn't include any freebies (Which I always do when I download something). So why is this thing still there? I'm afraid for my computer. It'll be two years since I first got it, in September 2015. It was a gift and a very high end laptop. Since I'm most likely going to be an Animation Arts student, I need this laptop to last me at least another 2-3 years. I've already begun saving for an equivalent if anything were to happen to it but I was hoping nothing would. Is there anything I can do to finally remove conduit completely? I noticed that I need to upload a log? I am not with my computer at the moment but I will attach that file once I am.
  6. Hello forums, I am a trial user of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware battling a handful of unwanted programs. A few years ago, my computer was the victim of a browser hijack and trojan from a company called "Sweetpacks". We successfully removed the trojan with Microsoft Security Essentials and fixed the damage to Chrome, but Internet Explorer still makes me extremely uncomfortable. A few days ago, I noticed the presence of Sweetpacks Internet Explorer Toolbar in my program list from a few years ago. Fearing we missed something, I ran multiple virus scans with no yield. After this, I attempted to uninstall this program, but gave the Sweetpacks uninstall the administrator password! (It did uninstall the program, but I'm unsure what else it may have done! This was extremely foolish of me.) I downloaded MalwareBytes and it picked up a plethora of garbage, ranging from Arcade Giant to Conduit to multiple other disgusting programs. There were also a huge amount of Sweetpacks files scattered throughout the registry and burrowed deep into multiple user's browser toolbars and extensions. Through the use of MalwareBytes, all of these items were quarantined and deleted. One however, is being detected by the threat scan after every restart. This Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE\MICROSOFT\INTERNETEXPLORER\SEARCHSCOPES\{EEE6C36... is being detected once with every scan. I don't understand the registry enough to know what this means! Why might this object be getting flagged with every scan? Why does it persist/get recreated upon each restart? Should I be worried about other unwanted programs returning on my computer? Additionally, can I trust that Microsoft Security Essentials is actually not locating any threats? Should it have found anything associated with these unwanted programs? Thanks so very much for your assistance, Johnathan
  7. Hi there, I would appreciate any help you can give me. I downloaded freeware recently that let in some malware with in. I uninstalled the programs, ran a virus search, and then ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. It was able to quarantine two items in my registry key, but is not able to remove them. I've read other forums and tried a few other tactics, all to no avail. Almost constantly, I am having ads pop up in my browser or start hearing advertisements that our are running in the background. I would sincerely appreciate your help! Rachel attach.txt dds.txt
  8. I've been having lots of issues with my pc's performance including being real slow, internet explorer not responding, and if I try to open a new tab I can't close it without going into my task manager and ending the process to get the browser to close. If I want a second web page open, I have to open 'a new window' only. My computer also says my version of windows needs activated (needs a registry key code). My only option is to hit activate later when starting my computer. I have the version of windows that came with the computer so its legit. I'm assuming some virus or something has caused it to do that. I decided to run Malwarebytes and it found about 6 viruses. One of which was PUP.MyWebsearch. The other 'trojans' it mentioned were removed after the quick scan/reboot, but the PUP registry key was found again when I ran another quick scan. I'm not sure if this is what is causing all my issues, but was hoping to at least get rid of it and see if it helps my computer.
