Malwarebytes 4.1 bogus detections and hindering pc operations

Recommended Posts

Does this folder still exist on your computer? This is a very odd, unexpected location to install Java to.

 

C:\Users\ROG\Desktop\Shimeji\Java

I can write a script to remove the folder and the other files associated but probably best you uninstall the new version of Java you have as well temporarily until we manually remove this one too. Then when done and we BOTH agree, you can then reinstall the latest Java.

That was where it was originally installed in. Shimeji is the app that required the older version of Java to run.

I wasn't thinking and trashed the folder instead of using the uninstall function.

Okay, the following should hopefully remove it

 

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop.
NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

fixlist.txt

Thanks

Something odd happened. I use JEdit script editor for programming stuff, and it now keeps pinging me with "needs Java Runtime 1.8 to run"
I have JRE 1.8 installed, with the latest update of Java. When I tried running the reinstaller, it still detects Java 6 as existing in the computer.

It's weird but nothing seems to be wrong, though. I'll try Malwarebytes right away.

The "Beta" option is locked for Premium only
The program says my premium trial expired so I cannot turn on Beta

Okay, other than Beta/Premium being shut off, there are no issues with Malwarebytes. Restarted normally, logged off normally, no BSOD upon waking from sleep.

Oh, ywah, nevermind that one. I just got it cleared out. Its a weird bug because for some reason the JEdit Software keeps wanting to run using Java6, because for some reason Java 6 is stilld etected as existing in the computer. 

I've redirected it to the correct Java version now, and everyTing looks alright.

Yes, I've had to support developers using Java now for over 20 years and why I really am not a fan of Java at least from the support side. It places junk all over the registry and file system. It was so bad that there have been a few people even create tools trying to fully remove the junk left behind because there are so many versions. JavaRA was one but its since gone out of development now a long time ago.

Glad you got your program working though.

Best wishes and have a great weekend. I'll go ahead then and close up your topic now.
