  1. Informative, thanks for posting this info...
  2. If you are using only the Free version of MBAM, then you do not have the benefits of active protection from the MBAM modules such as Web Blocker and Malware Protection. In this case I would do daily Threat Scans (especially after browsing the internet for a while) to make sure I did not pick up anything malicious. As for a Full scan, I would still run it as suggested... Best suggestion I could give you is to purchase the Premium version and be fully protected. Of course that is my opinions and others will vary...
  3. All that should be needed is a Threat Scan which should catch all malware that is on the system that is known to the database. A full scan may find a few more left overs, but those are not actively running on the system. For a better understanding of the scan types have a read through the topic below. https://www.malwarebytes.org/support/guides/mbam/Scan.html
  4. Can you provide a screen shot of the icon your talking about?

  7. Hello and Welcome to Malwarebytes It is most likely the infection that is causing your issue.

  9. I think is quite wrong for a software update to happen that will affect production without being properly notified.... I would get fired at my job for that....
  10. That is another issue, however that can only be done by the help desk... see below please The most efficient way to resolve activation issues is to contact the Help Desk. If you already have a ticket at the Help Desk, please try to be patient. The Help Desk is busy, and they are also assisting users with technical support and malware cleanup cases. Please do not open multiple tickets there -- doing so will slow down the process and could delay their response to you. If you do NOT already have a ticket at the Help Desk, you may open one HERE. Please provide the Help Desk with as much of the following information as possible (but do NOT post this sensitive information here in this forum): Name of purchaser Email address of purchaser Date of purchase cleverbridge reference number (or details about the seller, if it was NOT the Malwarebytes online store) MBAM license ID and Key information Screen shots of any error messages or other dialogs Either way, please be sure to check your spam and junk mail folders, to verify that the emails from the Support team did not land there by mistake. In the interim, you may wish to perform a CLEAN REINSTALL of MBAM -- the setup wizard will offer a 14-day Trial with the full, premium features, while you sort out the licensing issues. (1 Trial per PC per MBAM program version) Alternatively, you can also send an email to support@malwarebytes.org to get help.
  11. Hello and Welcome! Simply download the installer from the main site HERE. Once you have it installed, activate it and configure it to your liking and your all set.
  12. Encountered this error today while trying to browse the forums....
  13. Hello and Welcome to Malwarebytes If your system is infected, the experts can help you remove the infection, however depending on the ransomware you got hit with, it most likely they will not be able to help you decrypt them. We are not permitted to work on possible malware-related issues here in this section of the forum. Such work is conducted in a special forum area reserved for that purpose, or at the help desk.

  14. Actually running full scans on an SSD drive is not recommended either.... this is for the same reason why we don't run defrag on SSD drives, it will eventually make the drives fail. As stated a Threat Scan is all that is needed. Also if you are using the Premium version (Full Protection) along with a fully updated antivirus program, you should be all set.
  15. Your probably still getting the notification because MBAM has already downloaded the update and is waiting for you to install it. What you can do is go to the Malwarebytes folder where the rules files is located which I think in Windows XP is located here: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\ In that folder look for the mbam installer file (should be the only .exe file in that folder) and delete it. Reboot the computer and see if you still get the notification.
