not sure what was blocked, 1 of 2 or both

Recommended Posts

Something was blocked. When I looked at What was blocked. It showed the website name (but not www or http etc) and below under file it says: "\Windows\System32\MicrosoftEdgeSH.exe

SO this is what I don't understand. Is the culprit the exe file? and if this exe file is the culprit what makes this strange is that Edge was not open. SO I had asked myself if Edge I need to allow it because Windows demands it sometimes (even though another browser is the default Windows still pops that one open if you go to its store and stuff like that)

If its just that website that is fine by me (but since Edge wasn't open it makes it confusing)

Hi I was not able to connect back to the forum either on my own or through links here.
I was also unable to do anything you suggested since your instructions do not follow what I received when installing the file you had me download.
I had 2 choices -1- I have an open support ticket whereby a number needed to be keyed in and you never provided a number And if I click on "I don't have a support ticket" button what pops up instead is "Start Repair" Obviously we are not repairing anything so that button is not an option either.
Hence you either give me a support ticket number, which I assume you can't give me since you are only a volunteer, or we need to find another way.
Having said this, I feel what you are asking for is not necessary for I see no relevance to doing this based on my question. Am I wrong here? 😞 It would be nice to know what you hope to find out and accomplish by doing this.  I mean to me the answer would be "YES (or NO) The edge file is (not) the culprit. And then we would move on form there.
Thank you

It is important to see the logs & history from Malwarebytes in order to see all relevant detail.

Hence the need to run the support tool.  There is no need to have a ticket number or any of that.   You just simply fell into something that has led things astray.

EXIT out of the support tool.


Go slow & try with this quide.   and remember, we only want the  "Gather logs"   option.

I do look forward to getting the report file, so that I can see all details about any block notice events.

Since you mentioned EDGE browser, lets go ahead and do  these steps, as a means to help the Edge browser.

See this article on our Malwarebytes Blog
You want to disable the ability of each web browser on this machine from being able to allow "push ads". That means Chrome, Firefox, or Edge browser (on Windows 10), or on Opera. 
Scroll down to the tips section "How do I disable them". 

[    2    ]

Start Edge browser.

Then while still in the web browser, press and hold SHIFT + CTRL + DELete keys to start the process to delete all browser cache & history.

Let me know how you are coming along with the Support tool run.      See   https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039023453
