Yes thanks, but what i'd like to know is - if I had malware on my pc would Malwarebytes Free detect it on manual scan & flag it up in the log please?

Thanks again  ;)

free version will detect and remove when you scan ...... it will not block malware trying to install..... that is only PRO version

Malwarebytes is designed to be a addition to your AV, it only target executable files, and only fresh malware (usually not older then 3 months)

Still confused though - antimalware program that logs you all its detectors are disabled  :o


The logs don't say that *detection* is disabled, they say that *protection* is disabled.

"Protection" protects you from infections *before* they happen.

"Detection" detects infections that already exist.

The Pro version runs in the background and prevents malware from getting installed.

The Free version scans what and when you tell it to scan, looking for malware that's already on your computer.

Thanks. I wish they'd stop changing their formats though - i used Malwarebytes for years without any problem at all.

Looks like you need to run adwcleaner and if it still appears we can go for a manual cleanup

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan.
  • After the scan is complete click on "Clean"
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Unfortunately its 25 Dollars a year since version 2.

It was a lifetime license before. :-\
If you bought it before version 2, you will have will always have the lifetime license forever.

OK thanks. File attached. No sign of adnxs though - this bug has attached itself to my IP browser I think which is AOL, I don't recall seeing it pop up on Chrome or Firefox

So it is on the AOL branded IE only ??

Download OTL  to your Desktop
Secondary link
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.


  • Select All Users
  • Select LOP and Purity
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
netsvcs
BASESERVICES
%SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
c:\program files (x86)\Google\Desktop
c:\program files\Google\Desktop
dir "%systemdrive%\*" /S /A:L /C
/md5start
rpcss.dll
/md5stop
CREATERESTOREPOINT


  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Attach  both logs
