I keep getting alerts from my router that devices have malware, but when I scan using Malwarebytes, it does not detect any malware on any of the identified devices.  Is there a setting in Malwarebytes to find these hidden malware.  Router is Gryphon.  Using Malwarebytes 3 Pro

Malwarebytes can not scan routers.

I would have our trained experts check you computer. You might want reset the router to factory and re setup as well.

Please read and follow the instructions in this topic and then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and one of our malware removal specialists will assist you in checking and clearing the system of any remaining threats.

Please let us know how it goes.

Thanks, but it's not from the router, the router is just reporting that it's detected malware on device x.  But when I scan any of the devices, Malwarebytes says there's no malware.

It's reported on different devices, Mac, PC, and mobile devices.

I would try updating to Malwarebytes 4, it has a better engine for detecting Malware. Once you upgrade, make sure to enable the scan for rootkits before performing your first scan with it.  See if that helps.

Thanks.  I'll try the steps above first.  Unfortunately, the pricing program goes from family 10 devices down to 3 which is very cost prohibitive.  Probably will need to find another solution in the long run if the pricing structure doesn't change.

As long as you keep your subscription active the cost is the same with MB 4 as it was with MB3.  MB4 is a free upgrade as will future versions.

You pay the same no matter which version is installed.
