Malwarebytes starts blocking a website every minute from start-up

I've been getting notifications every minute from Malwarebytes saying they've blocked a malicious website, then it lists the IP address, port, and so on. I'm happy that it's blocking this IP address however, as said before it occurs every minute from start-up til I turn off my PC and I'm currently on the trial version which will end in 5 days and I'm not in the position to be able to pay for the full version right now. I'm not sure what to do as I've just bought my PC about 2 weeks ago and I don't want anything to occur. Thank you for any suggestions :)


Below is what the notification is of...

Hello @90sCerealKiller :welcome:

My name is Maurice. I will guide you. The Block notices means Malwarebytes is keeping your system safe from potential harm. Yes, have the Malwarebytes Quarantine what it has tagged.  Yes , if needed, delete the file identified in the folder \appdata\local\temp\

Do a new scan with Malwarebytes for Windows.

Do a Check for Update using the Malwarebytes Settings >> General tab.

See this Support Guide https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042187934-Check-for-updates-in-Malwarebytes-for-Windows

When it shows a new version available, Accept it and let it proceed forward.  Be sure it succeeds.

If prompted to do a Restart, just please follow all directions.

Let me know how that goes.    Next, the Malwarebytes sca

Next, click the small x on the Settings line to go to the main Malwarebytes Window.   Next click the blue button marked Scan.


When the scan phase is done, be real sure you Review and have all detected lines items check-marked on each line on the left. That too is very critical.

>>>>>>      👉      You can actually click the topmost left  check-box  on the very top line to get ALL lines  ticked   ( all selected).         <<<<     💢



Please double verify you have that TOP  check-box tick marked.   and that then, all lines have a tick-mark


Then click on Quarantine  button.



Then, locate the Scan run report;  export out a copy;  & then attach in with your  reply.

I did this and I haven't recieved the pop up for a few minutes, so I think it's fixed!


The weird application was open on my PC and was one of my start-up apps, hence starting the weird pop ups Malwarebytes was giving me. So I think it was a bot of some sort trying to get into my PC using the app, so I'm glad even if it wasn't much, that this suggestion stopped it.


Thank you very much :)

Alright. But I had better take a closer loook, I need a set of reports. 

This is a report only.

Please download MALWAREBYTES MBST Support Tool

Once you start it click Advanced >>> then   Gather Logs

 Have patience till the run has finished.

Upload an archive once it is done. Attach the mbst-grab-results.zip from the Desktop.


  • Please attach  mbst-grab-results.zip    to your reply
  • The IP block actions by Malwarebytes are keeping the machine safe from potential threats.
  • We do need the support zip reports to see more detail  ( the screen grabs just do not have full details + those screens give no clue as to what processes are running.
