Trying out premium to see if its for me, have a question:)


Recommended Posts

Hi all. Just started my 14 day trial , and installed . Just a couple of questions if possible . I have selected the windows defender to scan periodically option , Is that  ok?. ?Does it mean it will also help out  or do i need more protection on top of premium and periodic defender scan ?

 

And another question on scans, all i have seen is everything pup optional  , Are these a common thing to see on scans , And would you see them on most scans , In other words does web activity create a pup optional for example, that would show up in scans , and other normal activities would create these on scans ?

 

Thank you for your time

best regards

stay safe :)

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

Spoiler
  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop
  9. Please attach the file in your next reply.
  10. To uninstall all Malwarebytes Products, click the Clean button.
  11. Click the Yes button to proceed. 
  12. Save all your work and click OK when you are ready to reboot.
  13. After the reboot, you will have the option to re-install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows.
  14. Select Yes to install Malwarebytes.
  15. Malwarebytes for Windows will open once the installation completes successfully.

Greetings,

It is up to you whether you wish to keep Windows Defender active alongside Malwarebytes or not.  They are fully compatible with one another in real-time, so if you do wish to use both just let us know and we can explain how to set it up.

With regards to those PUP detections, it sounds like something may be getting detected in your browser that is persisting, likely due to the sync function in the browser itself which will reinstall an item after it has been removed by Malwarebytes.  To address this please try following the instructions in this topic to see if that resolves it.  If the detections still persist after that then please follow the instructions in this topic then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and a malware removal specialist will guide you in removing those PUPs for good.

I hope this helps and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

Thanks

It does not matter really. Just follow the instructions in the link already posted. If you clear sync it wont return.
