Annoying block messages

Recommended Posts


Real time protection is informing me of an address repeatedly that is blocked due to Trojan Protection.  This is some address I'm connected to via bittorrent.  I guess I want it blocked, but the constant reminder messages are annoying.  Anyway to keep the block but suppress the popups?  I would want it for only this address.  Thanks.

 I believe you can turn off the pop-up messages using the new "play mode" feature. Even though it says full-screen apps give it a try and report back.

Additionally, you don't necessarily need to have Web Protection active to filter your Bittorrent client as the only reason it connects to sites that may be blocked by Malwarebytes is due to the fact that it is a peer-to-peer application, so it connects to a wide array of IPs/servers, some of which may include servers that are also shared with sites hosting malware, but connecting to those servers via Bittorrent during a download poses no actual risk due to the way Bittorrent works (plus the fact that, whatever they may be seeding/leeching on that server through Bittorrent, it isn't the reason Malwarebytes is blocking that server) so you may exclude your Bittorrent client from Web Protection by following the instructions in this support article under the Exclude an Application that Connects to the Internet section so that it is no longer blocked from making those connections while still retaining full protection for your at-risk applications such as your web browser(s) etc.  Due to the way Bittorrent works, where it verifies the files/parts of files you download from/upload to others, there is no chance of an infection coming through your Bittorrent client from one of those IP addresses during a download (though of course if the file(s) you're downloading via Bittorrent happen to be infected then it doesn't matter where they came from, so be sure to scan them of course and use good judgment as a lot of malware is spread that way unfortunately).
