Weird Malwarebytes Issues

Recommended Posts


I recently installed Malwarebytes to try it out because I'm looking for a good combination of programs to keep my computer secure. However, after installing it, it turned my UAC on Windows 7 off. I turned it back on, and then it was turned off again. The only thing I've installed recently is Malwarebytes.

Also, Malwarebytes continuously blocks IP's. It blocks one at least every minute, and sometimes seconds apart. I dont know what its blocking, but the constant popups are getting annoying.

Can anybody help me make sense of this?

Thanks in advance.

Our program does not disable UAC and if you're getting constant IP block alerts you're either running Peer2Peer software in the back ground or you're quite possibly infected.

Please run the following.

Update and Scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

  • Start MalwareBytes AntiMalware (Vista/Win7 users must Right click and choose RunAs Admin)
  • Please DO NOT run MBAM in Safe Mode unless requested to, you MUST run it in normal Windows mode.
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Select the Update tab
    • Click Update

    [*]When the update is complete, select the Scanner tab

    [*]Select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.

    [*]When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

    [*]Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

    [*]When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply

    • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

Then post back the MBAM log

I do have a P2P program running but it shouldnt be registering everybody I'm sharing with as malicious. Also, it was literally right after it finished installing that the Action Center popup appeared saying I needed to restart to shut off UAC. I restarted and turned it back on, restarted again and then it was shut off yes again.

Here's the readout, no malware.

Looks good. Not sure what caused the UAC issue, but I know we don't disable it. I've installed many times on many systems with no issue.

As for the Peer2Peer, yes often many of the sites are known for Malware activity and are blocked on purpose. If you want to run the P2P you may want to consider some changes for running it.
