  1. Every day Malwarebytes scans my computer (Windows 10), and the same 206 threats are detected for quarantine. I quarantine them daily, but they are detected again the next day. I found a post in the forum with a similar problem, but it was in 2017 and Valinorum stated that the instructions should not be used for any other computer. I would appreciate an update to this fix.
  2. I have version with update 1.0.10486. Whenever I run it it returns 27 threats. Regardless of how often and even after restarting. What's wrong and how do I fix it? Thanks. Bob
  3. Hello, This is my first post here. I use Malwarebytes Premium on my computers home and very happy with it. I recently bought a used computer off eBay; its hard disk drive has Windows 7, some optimization tools from dell and apparently nothing else. The computer is a Dell 3620 workstation that was most likely used for business purposes. I installed and ran latest Malwarebytes premium and it didn't find anything bad. the Windows Defender also didn't find anything bad. However, I'm afraid that the computer might contain some malware in a hidden or encrypted state that could later activate and do bad things. My question is: are Malwarebytes capable of finding cryptic or hidden malware that might be inactive now? Thank you.
  4. Please see and read the attached word doc. Attach_18-01-2018.txt DDS_18-01-2018.txt Malwarebytes Zero Scan Results.docx
  5. When scanned my pc today I found 2 threats then I thought I removed them. However, after a quick restart, I scanned again and found the same 2 threats. I've done this 3 times and I am still finding the same ones. Anyone knows what to do? log2.txt log.txt
  6. Upgraded to newest version of MalwareBytes 3.3.1. Ever since that day, Malwarebytes has detected three potential threats. I would always have the threats quarantined. But the next morning the software detected the same three threats. I assumed I was surfing at a site that had malware. But one day, immediately after quarantining the detected threats, I ran a Malwarebytes Scan. It detected the same three threats even though I had just quarantined them and I had not been surfing. Either the threats are not real or Malwarebytes is not quarantining them. Just ran scan. It detected PUP.Optional.SweetIM PUP.Optional.SweetIM PUP.Optional.SweetPacks It detected these files in Google Chrome but if I quarantine them and run the scan again, they will be detected again.
  7. Ever since I signed up for a two year subscription last week, my daily scans produce exactly 47 (forty seven) PUPS all 47 of which I quarantine and remove daily. Same with the trial version of the same version on my laptop. Again, the magic number 47 with a different download on a different computer. If I scan manually in between my daily schedule on either computer...yep, you guessed it. 47 threats detected. Is it coincidence or are the scans designed to make me think Malwarebytes produces results? If that's the case, I wish- for variety sake - the malwarebytes czar would change up the number, at least monthly. Any thoughts about why 47?
  8. I would like to know, because it is not possible to understand it during the scan, how many are threats currently detected by MalwareBytes for macOS and among these how many are the ramsomware known? thanks
  9. I did a full scan and got to much threats (12,190) is it safe to quarantine and delete them? Will it cause any problems to my pc or to some apps on it? result text attached. Please help me. Malwarebytes thrests scan results.txt
