Constant riskware warnings/blockings when browsing normal sites


Recommended Posts

Good day,

I'm sure this is a common problem after searching the forums.  I am having the issue where Malwarebytes keeps alerting me of blocked riskware when browsing a typical site like Youtube.  If I right-click on the Malwarebytes icon, a selection of "exclude website *enter riskware name*" is there.  I'm sure I did something silly to cause a problem/intrusion with Chrome that Malwarebytes is picking up on.

Can you assist, thanks!

Aaron

Great, sounds good. I'll go ahead then and close your topic now and wish you well @MindofMykyta

  1. Recommend using a Password Manager for all websites, etc. that require a password. Never use the same password on more than one site.
