Recommended Posts

I would like to continue to block IP intrusions, but would prefer that the Popup Notify Window was turned OFF !

I don't care what the address is that it just blocked.

I tried to put a ' 0 ' and a ' 1 ' in " silent " in the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware "silent"=dword:00000001

but it still Pops Up to tell me it just blocked some address.

PLEASE HELP ! ! !

Greetings Phantom Tech and welcome to Malwarebytes :)

The correct entry is "silentipmode"=dword:00000001, not "silent", that's why it isn't working. All you need do is change the word silent to silentipmode, reboot your computer, then you're all set :).

Before editing the registry it's also a good idea to do a backup first in case something goes wrong. To do so you can use the following tool:

Backup the Registry:

Modifying the Registry can create unforeseen problems, so it always wise to create a backup before doing so.

  • Please download ERUNT from here
  • ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.
  • Double click on erunt-setup.exe to Install ERUNT by following the prompts.
  • Use the default install settings but say NO to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the Start-Up folder. You can enable this option later if you wish.
  • Start ERUNT either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup process.
  • Choose a location for the backup.
    • Note: the default location is C:\Windows\ERDNT which is acceptable.

    [*]Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are selected.

    [*]Click on OK

    [*]Then click on YES to create the folder.

Note: if it is necessary to restore the registry, open the backup folder and start ERDNT.exe

Should you need anything else just post.

Thanks :)

Hi, blueblue:

Welcome.

This is a REALLY ancient thread, about a very old version of MBAM. ;)

Are you just looking to turn off the tooltip balloon that notifies you when a malicious website is blocked?

If so, please just follow the steps in this screen-grab.

Please let us know if this answers your question. :)

Cheers!

Hi, blueblue:

You are most welcome. :)

Glad I could help.

For future reference, and for others who might find this forum topic, here's additional information about the IP blocking module:

What does it mean when I get an IP alert about blocking a 'malicious' site?

Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block Skype?

Why does Malwarebytes Anti-Malware block BitTorrent or other Peer to Peer Clients?

Why is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware blocking my antivirus?

FYI, if you are NOT running Skype or P2P software, and you are are seeing a lot of IP blocks --- especially outgoing ones with no open browsers -- it could be a sign of infection.

If you suspect that you could be infected -- based on the IP blocks or other suspicious computer behavior, I would suggest having an expert assist you with checking your system.

To do so, please follow the recommendations in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

A qualified helper will guide you through the scanning and cleanup process.

Thanks,

Hello and welcome:
 

How do I block the ballons notifications in version 2.0.1.1004? This is really annoying!

 
Unfortunately, notifications/popups are pretty much "all or none" in version 2 at this time.
The devs have promised restoration of more granular user control with a future build.
 
Having said that, IP blocks can indicate a number of things:

  • They could indicate that MBAM is doing its job of blocking bad content on websites.
  • In some cases the blocks are a false positive.
  • However, they can also be a sign of infection, especially if the blocks are outgoing and they occur when no browsers are open.

--> There is more information about the IP blocking module in the in the Help Desk topics HERE and HERE and HERE, and in the FAQ - Section G. And the User Guide contains instructions about how to safely set Web Exclusions for P2P programs that tend to generate many such blocks (see links below)

On the other hand, if you think the IP blocks might be a false positive, then please read this pinned topic before starting a new topic in the Website Blocking False Positives sub-forum.

Alternatively, if you think you might be infected, based on the IP blocks and/or other suspicious computer behavior, then please read the following for the available options to have a malware expert assist you with the cleaning process Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
 
ALSO, for additional information:
There is an FAQ Section here: Common Questions, Issues, and their Solutions
And here are links to the MBAM 2.0 User Guide: Online and PDF
And there are many useful KB topics and videos at the helpdesk support page


Thanks,

 

P.S. This is a VERY old, stale topic that was started 4 years ago.  Replying to such old threads is generally discouraged. If you need more help with your issue, please start a NEW topic in the MBAM support section >>HERE<<. ;)
