Malwarebytes on Windows 8

11 posts in this topic

I've only just notice today in the MBAM logs today some discrepancies, I'm on a clean install of win8 and the logs tell me I'm using win7 and IE9 browser :blink: look like the guy's might have to do a bit more work on the compatibilities between Malwarebytes and the latest Windows system, another thing I've also noticed over the last couple of weeks but wasn't sure if it were related to MBAM is that 90% of my system shut downs don't work correctly in that the screen goes off but the keyboard stays lit up and the power button stays on meaning I have to hard shutdown, once I restart again and disable MBAM the shut downs work properly. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO) 1.65.1.1000

Database version: v2012.12.09.02

There is definitely no infection present in my system Ron, everything works and runs perfectly except for what I have previously explained that when Malwarebytes is running the system will not shut down correctly which I believe is due to Malwarebyte's not being completely compatible with win8 or one of my installed programs and not letting go of certain drivers when the system is trying to shut off. Would you be kind enough to point out to myself where in the logs you find this discrepancy ? I've posted new logs in the malware section just as a cautionary checkup.

Just said it "appears" to be. It could be caused by other things such as software conflicts but certainly something going on that requires further analysis.

Interesting! I wonder if a lot of that has to do with the fact that I've disabled bluetooth features and also the Bluetooth/Wlan co-existence module which also ties in with "The ATKGFNEX Service"

I've just tried a few different scenarios and the problem disappears when I uninstall Outpost and set MBAM back to realtime, seems to only be a problem when there both active so for now I'll do without Outpost so you can close this topic if you like. Thankyou for your help :)

Just a thought.... if it works fine without Outpost, have you tried entering exceptions in both Outpost and MBAM to prevent a possible conflict? I would not recommend running your computer without an antivirus program active.

Please exclude the following files from your Antivirus Software (not sure what version of you are using):

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude them from it as well

For Windows Vista or Windows 7 & 8:

  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\ mbamscheduler.exe

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7 & 8:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware \ mbamscheduler.exe

Note: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude MBAM.EXE and MBAMSERVICE.EXE from it as well

Note: Once that's done, please make sure that if either of those programs has any sort of web filter, that you add the following as a trusted site:

data-cdn.mbamupdates.com

The FAQ contains examples of setting file exclusions for some known AV products

Please post back and let us know how it went.

Yes I had already placed all the exclusions Firefox, it's always the first thing I do whenever installing any security software but it made no difference to the shutdown issue, I guess win8 is just too new at the moment so whether it's one of the programs or my drivers who knows but there all the latest available. Do note that the firewall is outpost and the AV is Defender which is active, once avast gets itself sorted that will be re-installed :)
