Latest Stable release send too many requests


Recommended Posts

I was just going to try out latest Stable. I used latest Beta before (no problems).  This mean that YOU should not go over to Beta. It's for testing purposes only.

I got curious why people write about license problems, so why not try it out?

I installed latest Stable and played around . Nothing happened in the first 10 minutes so I looked at a movie. Come back 1 hour later and my Internet had died. My Wifi connection was totally dead. I couldn't do anything than a clean install. When I did a clean install i had connection issues to download MB.  I re-connected to my Wifi and downloaded MB from site.  I'm 100% sure it's MB that is sending too many requests from latest Stable release. Since I don't want to try this again, because it took some time to test this out. I guess other people here on the forums could check this out.

From my view, I see this as DoS from MB client.

Edit 1:

The reason I think this is a problem in the MB client in Stable channel, is that I used my computer with Wifi exactly after the Beta update.  I did some stuff before in many hours without any issues in Beta channel. I tried out stable just to get this confirmed. I have not used any tools to check how many requests MB client use. But I guess someone else can do this.

Edit 2:

Using Process Monitor on Windows 11, latest Windows update and also all programs up to date. Withouth any issues on the latest Stable release.

Using Process Monitor on Windows 10, latest Windows update and also all programs up to date. Waiting on MB client to send request, will report back.

Edit 3:

After a hour of waiting, I found out that Windows 10 receive and send so much data from/to MB. I have attached the logs from Process Monitor. Around 1k requests from MB client.

Edit 4:

MB beta client is also affected on Windows 10. I saw my Wifi to get nuked multiple times. The only thing was to uninstall Beta client too. I'm no longer protected by MB client, because this issue on Windows 10.

tl;dr Windows 10 users is affected by this both Beta and Stable release. Somehow is MB client sending and receiving so much data.

Found out that Windows 11 is not affected by this Stable release. Windows 10 users should be experiencing issues because somehow is MB client sending so much data. I attached log files from Process Monitor from my Windows 10 machine. I also noticed that at least me with Wifi got nuked totally. The only way was a clean install and reboot. Since I don't use my Windows 10 computer so much I decided to not install MB client again. I hope the issues is going to be fixed on Monday.

We're not able to duplicate this issue. Have you changed, modified your MTU settings on that system?

Can we get logs from that Windows 10 system please?

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained are safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

  • Download the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  • In your Downloads folder, open the mb-support-x.x.x.xxx.exe file
  • In the User Account Control pop-up window, click Yes to continue the installation
  • Run the MBST Support Tool
  • In the left navigation pane of the Malwarebytes Support Tool, click Advanced
  • In the Advanced Options, click Gather Logs. A status diagram displays the tool is Getting logs from your machine

Please uninstall Malwarebytes.

Then temporarily disable Sandboxie-Plus

Also, temporarily disable the Spotify startup

Spotify Music -> C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\SpotifyAB.SpotifyMusic_1.185.895.0_x86__zpdnekdrzrea0 [2022-05-14] (Spotify AB) [Startup Task]

 

Then restart the computer and run the following fix. This will manually remove most traces of Malwarebytes from the computer.

Attach the FIXLOG.TXT file once the fix has been completed.

 

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

Please make sure you disable any real-time antivirus or security software before running this script. Once completed, make sure you re-enable it.

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 that cannot be undone.

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) or wherever you ran FRST from. 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.

NOTE-1:  This fix will run a scan to check that all Microsoft operating system files are valid and not corrupt and attempt to correct any invalid files. It will also run a disk check on the restart to ensure disk integrity. Depending on the speed of your computer this fix may take 30 minutes or more.

NOTE-2: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed. The use of an external password manager is highly recommended instead of using your browser to store passwords.

NOTE-3: As part of this fix it will also reset the network to default settings including the firewall. If you have custom firewall rules you need to save please export or save them first before running this fix.

The following directories are emptied:

  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome, and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache
  • Flash Player cache
  • Java cache
  • Steam HTML cache
  • Explorer thumbnail and icon cache
  • BITS transfer queue (qmgr*.dat files)
  • Recycle Bin

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

Thank you. That was a pretty good run.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.

 

Please save the attached, updated FIXLIST.txt file and run as before with Farbar and press the FIX button.

 

fixlist.txt

 

After the computer restarts then run Farbar again and click on SCAN and get me all 3 of the following files.

  • FIXLOG.TXT
  • FRST.TXT
  • ADDITION.TXT

 

Thanks again

I have tried this. The command works good without restart. If I restart the computer this settings get removed every reboot.

After a reboot, if you run it again do you get another failed message?

netsh int ipv4 reset

 

If i run this command after reboot I get no errors. And yes the permissions in registry get reset each reboot.

Okay, as long as the error is gone. That is a dynamic key setting that has effects elsewhere.

 

Okay, please get me a new, fresh set of scan logs from Farbar after these changes.

FRST.txt
Addition.txt

 

Thanks

 

The error is not gone. I wrote wrong information. I was going to write after the registry change and I run the command I get no errors. But if I reboot and run the command I get access denied and so on.
