    BC be sure and check on whether or not Malwarebytes is installed. That sounds a lot like the problems I was having. It was caused by a bad update and I had to uninstall and then put the program back on. Worth looking at. (I don't even know if Malwarebytes runs on XP)

    Just commented to my wife this morning that the computer was running better, faster, than before the problem. Whatever they fixed they did a good job of it.

    Know within the last few months a number have had trouble with Malwarebytes. I was lucky, I had not experienced any problems until today. Computer really slow this morning. Would take minutes for a page to load. Then noticed real time protection from Malwarebytes was off. Turned on. Everything worked for a few minutes, then protection went off again. Checked Task Master. Malwarebytes and Windows Problems, were using all resources. Found there was a new forced update installed this am. I uninstalled malwarebytes, installed a fresh copy, inserted license key #, scanned, and, so far, running good.

    Sad, sad situation, regardless of why they are there
  8. Avast vs. Malwarebytes

    Not sure what this is worth, but Win 10 recognizes malwarebytes now as an anti virus.
  9. Avast vs. Malwarebytes

    That is why I used the free Avast. The new suite is huge and gets into everything. Their popups don't bother me much. As I use free, I just consider that the cost. Plus with adblockers, I really don't get that many.

    Thanks, nodsh. Good to know.
  11. Avast vs. Malwarebytes

    I have always thought of Avast as being virus protection software and Malwarebytes as being more against ads, and other junk you don't want on your compute. I have always been told not to use two anti virus programs as they conflict with each other. I have Avast free and Malwarebytes Premium which I have run side by side for some time with no problems (as far as I know). Last night I was on the Malwarebytes website and saw where it says Malwarebytes Premium replaces antivirus. I did not know this. Should I be running them both? Tried to find out on their forum but did not find anything. Kenneth

    Thanks for that info. I panicked when I saw your post. We use that product and if something had happened to my wife's shih tzu and it was ever discovered I had knowledge of that info, I would not even have a doghouse to live in.
