The above being said.

You are welcome to keep your unsupported operating system.

But you must do the updates I listed to be compatible with future versions of Malwarebytes.

You are just reading what the untruths MS haters keep posting everywhere. The same "privacy "issues are in Win 7 as well but MS is/was not as transparent about it as it is with 10.

That can be changed but if set up "right" it has not been an issue with my clients to get used to.

Yes it is, you must have those listed updates to continue to receive updates from now on.

It is the same with all users that are using Windows 7.

You can disable automatic updates through Windows Update's settings after reinstalling IE11 and restarting your system (a restart is required after installing IE11), that way it won't revert to installing updates automatically.

Details on controlling Windows Update can be found in the following article:

I was under the impression that if you didnt load certain KBs, 7 would not have those "privacy" issues, and 10 developer copies are even worse

I use malware on my Window 7 TV DVR, cant be upgraded or replaced as Media center was disabled in 10, and there are no replacements that record under 10 for DRM content

Then you should be all set, though you might want to restart the system once more and verify the setting afterwards just to make sure.

 

so is there another reason it keeps updating then? this never used to happen when i had internet explorer 11 before

Do you mean that it is still updating automatically even though you have it set not to, or are you asking why it had previously reset itself to the default setting to update automatically?

You're already running an Operating System that is no longer supported. It can potentially have an exploit come out tomorrow and Microsoft won't patch or fix it. Malwarebytes is a great tool but it's not designed to shore up and prevent operating system exploits when Microsoft is no longer patching that OS. That's like having a boat with holes in the bottom and taking it out to sea without fixing the holes. Why would you ever want to do that? I'd would highly suggest that you install all security updates that Microsoft has to offer that OS if you're not planning on replacing it yet @Jay692

Let us get some logs and we'll see if we can help you further.

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply as well.

Thank you

 

 

  • Thanks 1
