Two tray icons are back


Recommended Posts

Hello Ken,

 

What are the icons ?  is there some indication of what they are?  Can you hover the mouse pointer over each, to see if there is some sort of title or description?

Also, tell us what this implies or means "Ran clean and went through the registry.".

 

Congratulations on having the latest Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version     2.0.2.1012

The mbam-check log looks fine.

Your FRST does not show anything out of the ordinary.

They are both 2.0.2.1012.

One reads 2014.5.21.10 yesterday

The other 2014.5.22.6 today

 

I looked in taskmanager Windows 8.1 and there are two mbam.exe in details tab. Looks like it's being started twice I couldn't find from where.

I am going to run Autoruns to see if I can find something. Give me a minute ....Couldn't find anything weird. Trying Processexplarer next

p.s.  Your UPDATE task is set to notify after each database update.  I would suggest that that feature is really not necessary.

Most of us would rather not be bothered with the reminders, as they would show at odd moments and interfere with our work.

As long as one knows the application is working, there isn't the need to keep getting those "notifications on each update".

 

Here are my typical suggestions on the scheduled tasks:

Take a look inside the program. Start the Anti-Malware. Click on the Settings icon at the top bar up at top.
Then click the **Advanced Settings** button at the left.
Be sure all top 3 lines on that window are check-marked ( selected ).

Now a couple of changes for each of the Update task & the Threat scan task in the Scheduler.
Click on **Automated Scheduling** button.

Locate and click once on **Check for Updates** line and press Edit. Then press the Advanced button at bottom left.
Slide the window up so you can see all of it. {press the mouse on the very top bar and slide UP }
 
Look at the "starting time" of the task and use some good time when you know that your computer will be on & powered & that Windows would be on at that time.
Look at the line in Schedule Options. UN-check "Show notification after successful update".

In the Frequency and Settings. Select Hourly and I suggest using the Recurrence at 4 hours.
In the Recovery Options put a check-mark on "Recover missed tasks" and select 1 hour
When done, press the OK button.

Locate and click once on the Threat Scan line and press Edit.Then press the Advanced button at bottom left.
Slide the window up so you can see all of it. {press the mouse on the very top bar and slide UP }


In the Schedule Options, put a check-mark on the line Terminate program when no threats are found
{when no malwares are detected you want the scheduled task to close}.

In the Frequency and Settings block.
You should have Daily and the recurrence set to 1 day.
now UN-check the line Check for updates before scanning {{that line should be always off otherwise the task may not run at the time set. It maybe run +/- 15 minutes of that period.}

In the Recovery Options put a check-mark on "Recover missed tasks" and select 1 hour
When done, press the OK button.

When completely done, close the window.

A fresh Windows start would be good to do at this point. Use Logoff and Restart Windows.

Monitor your system over the next day or two and let us know how it goes.

 

 

There is nothing wrong or odd about your installation.   :)
