Pop up notifier

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded this program today and I need to know how to disable the pop up that appears in my tool bar everytime the program successfully blocks the access to a potential malicious website....It's annoying. I have searched and can't find how to get rid of it......Thanks :blink:

Hello and welcome to MBAM forum, azcrum: :)

IP blocks can indicate a number of things:

  • They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.

  • They can also occur when running certain P2P and other programs, such as Skype -- For example, please see this recent post by forum Admin AdvancedSetup about IP blocks and Skype.

  • In some cases the blocks are a false positive.

  • However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and they occur when no browsers are open.

--> There is more information about the IP blocking module in the FAQ - Section G (and in the Helpdesk-FAQ).

--> It includes instructions on how to set MBAM to ignore a particular IP, if you wish to do so.

It also contains instructions on how to determine what process might be trying to make the connections.

And you may also research the IP in question at www.ip-lookup.net or a similar site.

On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this article before starting a new topic in the False Positives forum.

Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following to begin the cleaning process. First, please print out, read and carefully follow the instructions in the "I'm Infected - What Do I Do Now?" article. Then please start a new post in the Malware Removal forum. A qualified expert will help you to get your system cleaned up.

If you only want to turn off the popup balloon, itself, then please see the screen shot for how to change that setting (simply un-check that item). :)
