  1. I know it's not common but I use some applications written in .net that act as client/server on the same machine using socket connections. Disabling web protection the communication works very faster otherwise I have lags of 2-3 seconds in the beginning of the connection. Adding them in the exclusions as app that connect to internet does nothing. The only workaround I've found is to use an external machine i.e. a raspberry that acts as a "bridge" doing port forwarding. Excample: machine with client/server app -> ip server listens to <--> client calls from another process in the SAME machine --> I get lags workaround: raspberry on with iptables configured in this way: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 821 -j DNAT --to-destination iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -p tcp -d --dport 821 -j SNAT --to-source the client on is configured to connect to but actually it is redirected to its ip using my iptables rule. --> in this way no lags even with web protection active. Mbam version is on windows 10
  2. I have a Malwarebytes Premium 3.7.1 account and am trying to turn on the "Web Protection" switch but it won't let me. How do I do this? Earlier I rebooted my computer and when it came back up Web Protection was off, and nothing I've tried will let me switch it on. I use Windows 10.
  3. Well, after installing the latest component package version 1.0.508, i noticed that for some unexpected reason the cpu usage went up to 75%. Looking at the taskmanger i found the Avira WebGuard Service causing this high cpu usage. Somehow it went away, and came back again and again (the highest cpu usage was 75%, sometimes is 50% and 25% ) I am using Avira Antivirus Pro, but because the problem occourred since the latest malwarebytes update, - switching off web protection immediately solves the problem. I allready uninstalled malwarebytes, but the issue came back again. I can not reproduce the problem, it just happens sometimes. here is the log: mbst-grab-results.zip for now, i just try the repair button in the malwarbytes support tool...
  4. Just an FYI that an update to MB Premium v3.2.2.2018 (CU 1.0.188) did not fix the issue described in my previous thread MB / Norton Exploit Protection Conflict with 32-bit Firefox Browser? where my Norton Security Automatic LiveUpdates (ALUs) fail if MB's Web Protection module is enabled. I performed an over-the-top update from v3.1.2 to v.3.2.2 on 27-Aug-2017 using the latest installer from https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3 (note that the Settings | Application | Application Update | Install Application Updates button reported that "No updates are available"). I ran MB v3.2.2 with Web Protection and Exploit Protection both disabled (Ransomware Protection is automatically disabled on my 32-bit vista machine) and confirmed that my background Norton ALUs were running correctly. I then enabled Web Protection 28-Aug-2017 @ 9:27 AM and re-booted, and the very first Norton ALU was cancelled after trying to run to completion for over 80 min. mb-check-results.zip FRST.txt Addition.txt ---------- 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP2 * Firefox ESR v52.3.0 * NS Premium v22.10.0.85 * MB Premium v3.2.2.2018-1.0.188 HP Pavilion dv6835ca, Intel Core2Duo T5550 @ 1.83 GHz, 3 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
  5. Serious BUG, it happened on my sp4 for 4 times mbst-grab-results.zip logs you need System: win10 17134.5 Surface pro 4
  6. Web protection and Malware protection can't be turned on after reboot on Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, MalwareBytes When I reboot one of my systems, it boots up with Web protection and Malware protection turned off. When I try to turn them on from settings , in the MalwareBytes app UI, or from the service tray, they won't turn on. I tried to change them by restoring defaults but that seems to make no changes. I have rebooted this system a couple of times. I also tried updating the MalwareBytes app itself but I already have the latest. Also, before I rebooted, these were turned on and working. What can be done to fix this? Do I need to uninstall/reinstall or is there a shorter/safer way to fix this issue?
  7. I've read the 3-page thread with the same title, but since it was locked a while ago "to reduce confusion" I'm asking the question again. Is there a final summary answer to what to do when web protection will not stay turned on? I can go through all the steps recommended in the previous topic about this, but figured, it may be time to ask afresh.
  8. Updated Malwarebytes Free to new version - and it went into free trial period for Malwarebytes Premium. Soon afterwards Firefox began to fail - it would freeze, and using task manager to kill it would remove all but one process that became unkillable without rebooting machine. That process would also prevent Firefox from restarting. Switched to Opera - same result Switched to Chrome - same result Switched to Internet Explorer - same result. Resolved problem by ending the Malwarebytes trial and reverting to the Malwarebytes free without Web Protection.
  9. The program had bugs when I bought it and wouldn't install. Finally figured it out for myself and now another bug. I feel the "free" malwarebytes was an excellent program to find issues but this program is a real headache, now I'm not protected yet again. I feel it is not a good value for money. These issues cost time and money for the buyer with no easy way to contact company for help except email, which in this case is slower than snail male. Will not purchase again and probably will have to buy another program since I'm losing faith in this one fast. mb-check-results.zip
