    Thanks for the fast reply.

    If I'm OK with the installation is pretty much moot as it's done and for me working well is nothing froze up or BSOD'd. For all the other workings well I have to trust in your code.

    I kinda wished I'd've paid attention to that and changed the directory to the one with the apostrophe to avoid a plethora of changes I needed in my firewall and exceptions lists in other apps. No big deal. That is, after all, the fun we have with infosec. :D

    And I forgot to mention in my post #44... Thanks for honoring my lifetime licenses (they're going on about five years now). As they say in Brooklyn, "Youse guys is good eggs!"

    Cheers.

    Is anyone seeing javascript errors with MBAM PRO 2.0 in IE 11, Windows 7?

    Since disabling the real time protection modules these errors have stopped... so far.

    I am still troubleshooting, so if anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate hearing them.

    Thanks!

    Yes, disabling real time protection has solved my problem.

    Can anyone tell me if I can uninstall v2 and reinstall v1.75, at least until that annoying banner is removed telling me my protection is disabled?

    Do I need to run the clean up tool or is Windows Add/Remove programs suitable?

    TIA

    PUPS & PUM should be treated as Malware as a default setting.

    Under that RAM usage, sorry but I will not keep MPAM Premium.

    OS: Win 8.1 Pro, 32-bit, 4 GB RAM.

    Can you give us a number? How far can go those optimization in my case?
    From 62,5 MB to -> ?

    That was the default setting on the two v2 Premiums I've installed so far. Was it not for you?

    What's wrong with the Warn user... setting?

    Well unless we come up with some unforeseen method we won't be going to 24MB of RAM usage.

    Right now writing this reply I have the following usage.

    Firefox is at 350MB
    Thunderbird is at 150MB
    Probably at least another 10 programs using 50+ MBAM of RAM and with everything running (79 processes) I'm still only using 2% of my physical memory.

    If your interest is simply in low RAM usage instead of actual security then our program may not be right for you. Hopefully we provide quite a bit of security and features to help protect and clean your system that do help offset the RAM usage and make it worthwhile.

    Why you compare oranges with apples?

    I was talking about anti-malwares (Avira/MBAM)
    --------------
    Really?

    I have a top AV => Avira Suite 2014: 39,1 MB total
    and I don't want to use the double ram for an assistant* (MBAM).
    Under those circumstances for sure the paid MBAM it's not for me. I will remain with the on demand free version.

    Anyway, thanks for the reply.

  15. All new PC's have 4 - 8 - 16GB memory. Even on my five year old E5200 Pentium dual core with 2GB Peak memory usage never exceeds 65% RAM usage? See picture.

    What system are you running?

    You may revert to non default settings at your own risk and peril.

    See older screencapture on detecting PUPS & PUMS. http://blog.malwarebytes.org/news/2013/09/selecting-all-pups/

     
  18. Anon,

    Is your peak memory usage giving troubles (should not be an issue with 3GB effective on your fast 32 bits system)?

    I just installed configured a Win 8.1 Pro laptop for a friend (I allow him to use Microsoft Office on my business license pack, but I don't give him the installation disk): MBAM PRO with Windows Defender (not MSE) ran great together in terms of performance and protection (tested with some malware sample sets). Have a go at it (curious to know whether it matches Avira).

    Regards Kees
     
  19. Yes I have set it to warn, lot's of hardening settings are detected as intrusion.

    Only noticing that it is non-default, leads to stupid PUM conclusions, here is one: BLOCK configuration while system restore is ON, is seen as an malware detection :argh: Would have been a correct conclusion when system restore was OFF, so pleas change detection logic

    a) When system restore configuration is OFF and system restore is OFF ==> PUM
    b) When system restore configuration is OFF and system restore is ON ==> congratulations, you reduced the attach ssurface

    Not at all.

    But MBAM Premium high ram usage it's a fact.

    Since my previous post has mysteriously ? disappeared I will say one more time for the quick readers before THIS post gets removed, MBAM PRO 2.0 caused script errors in IE 11! :thumbd:

    Just because you decide to use this phrase doesn't mean the comparison is inappropriate and btw: Avira = apple and MBAM = orange. Why do you compare oranges with apples?

    As to memory usage, I recommend Malwarebytes to make use of hiding part of the memory consumption in the kernel or make excessive use of the pagefile. It may be deceptive and even cripple performance but who cares? Just make that magic number in the taskmanager as tiny as possible and people will go nuts about how the lean the program is.
