Greetings,

Please post a log/report from the detections/removal of the items with the exclusions in place so that we can see why they are still being detected.  Details on how to do so can be found in this support article.

Thanks

Hello   thank you for your reply   Unless I unclear it , the exception is nothing  You see

Here is the screen photo  >>  If I allows it to remove the pup-up, second day the dictionary will stop running even its icon on desktop remains

When you reach that part of the scan, uncheck the box next to the item and then click Next and when asked what to do with the remaining items, select the option to always ignore and it should be excluded.  If that does not work, please do the following:

  1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced tab on the left (not Start Repair)
  3. Click the Gather Logs button, and once it completes, attach the zip file it creates on your desktop to your next reply

Thank you   Of course, it goes right even I don't add any exception.

But can I ask you please

Is Babylon dictionary really an unwanted or a malicious program ?  If not so, why does the Adware remove it?

Many people online complain of the pup-up of Babylon.

Though I remove the toolbar of the program from programs and features, I see it does no sense and still any anti-malware I install in my PC considers it unwanted. 

I used this dictionary for a long time but now I feel suspicious about.

I have read somewhere it changes the Homepage of Firefox, but this I never saw in my browser, however, it is easy to solve.

I immediately after I install Babylon I go to control panel  >> Internet option and I change it to www.google.com.

Many messages of the program still come after installation and I ignore all.

All these processes I am familiar with, but the risks of the program are still keeping on.

So, how can I be safe and in the same time I am still installing the dictionary ?

Malwarebytes' criteria for classifying programs as PUP (Potentially Unwanted Programs) can be found here and there is an entry in Malwarebytes' threat glossary for Babylon here.

If you would post the logs requested above I can help you to exclude it so that it is no longer detected on your system.

Thanks

Thank you very much

Does it not convey a really threat  to a computer? 

Now, I have uninstalled the dictionary.

In the log it appears that Adware considers Babylon dictionary a threat and just I installed and scanned my PC 14 items the Adware typed to be removed.

If I just uncheck those for Babylon which are ( 2 items ) 12 items should be removed , but the dictionary will not work.

Then a message comes out  "  shortage initialization failed error 3 "  = not works

I see those ( 12 items ) are also associated with Babylon.

Just I removed all, and scanned my PC , no threat will be seen. = clear 

 

Indeed, I need the dictionary too much, but as much as  I noticed some people said  " it has a threat " I gave it out of my desire.

If all you need is a dictionary, there are alternatives to Babylon that you can use that contain no adware or PUPs.  I just checked the Chrome web store and found Instant Dictionary as well as Grammarly.  If neither of those suits your needs you can take a look at the other options available; just search for relevant terms such as dictionary, grammar or thesaurus etc., depending on what you need.  If you're using Firefox, there are extensions available such as the ones listed here where I did a search for the term dictionary.

I hope this is helpful.

The dictionaries you mentioned are browser dictionaries ( extensions )

What I need, is  just if  I find a cover like a Babylon BGL so that I can install inside my other dictionaries such as : Oxford concise + thesauruses also Merriam both  types + many other groups ( medical + bible + 4 or 5 Arabic dictionaries )  .. theses dictionaries include all terms as well as expressions. 

You may know I am translator and I need to focus on all extensive knowledge.

I can easily get the Oxford advanced students Dictionary which is almost exclusive, but its size is about 2 Gigabytes, so I dislike to install. 

Anyway, I am gratified to you and I will look to my issue anywhere.

Best wishes
