Textmaker Office exporting a Dokument in PDF - Ransomware Protection ...

Recommended Posts


I found the following Problem:

1. when I open a Textmaker Dokument in Textmaker Office 2018 Professionel - the Dokument is 15 pages long  (is xxx.tmdx)

2. I then hit the Button for PDF-Export in Textmaker

3. image.png.db79563c15ff722d8e95c96c98e01ea4.png


4. once I press "ok" the following things occure:

- Malwarebytes takes 35% Cpu-Usage for the time the Dokument is converted to a PDF

- Textmaker becomes unusabel ("it´s not responding anymore")

- it takes at least one Minute to get the PDF (I use PDF Viewer Plus from the Microsoft Store)



When I exclude Textmaker from Ransomware Protection, then it just takes 10 seconds and everything is fine (textmaker is still responding).


Please have a look if there is any tuning for the Ransomware-Protection needed.

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:

  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.

Hello Malwarebytes Team,

for some reason I unistalled Malwarebytes and switched to norton.

After updating to windows 2004 norton had some problems and I decided to go back to old...

Now using Defender and Malwarebytes.

Everything works fine, BUUUUT my problem with creating a PDF in Textmaker (see the above details) is still there - feels little bit worse than before.

And i have to exculde Textmaker from Ransomware Protection - and again it´s everything fine  (this time it´s just a 1 page document).

It seems like no one was interested in this problem...
