Thanks Anak for pointing out the free version.
I'm playing with it, and since installing it I see an Event Viewer warning.

The system I'm using for testing this is:
- Win 8.1
- Real-time protection:
-- Panda AV (free)
-- MBAM (paid)
-- WinPatrol (free)
-- EMET 5.1 (free)
Everything is fully updated.

Is this warning normal, or something I need to "Fix" ?

Thanks Bill, that gives me something to work with ...

I'm so tired of the "MBAM clean / reinstall" process ... Been there, done it, too many times
I hope I find it's something else ...

Happy New Year !

I have never had that issue, but remember Kaspersky users having it quite often. Happy New Year. When I find a giveaway, I'll find this thread and PM you as well

Thanks, and I'll do the same if I see another giveaway.
I'll do an MBAM clean and see if that helps.

Something MORE important came up, so reinstalling MBAM is on the second burner.

Steve McQueen in the old 50s "Wanted Dead or Alive" series just started playing.
Watching THAT is more important - ain't seen them since I can remember

David,

I don't believe this is something you could fix, as it is caused by outdated programming. Going by the KB in your event warning (KB197571) I found this on the mbam site: https://detected AppInit_DLLs | forums.malwarebytes.org
The mbam discussion centers on Microsoft's (MS) recommendation to stop using this "feature" as there are better ways to load .dlls into the system, the inference is this older "feature" is now used by rootkits to inject harmful code.

Post #7 by Advanced Setup has a good presentation on the subject, and if you're still concerned and want to try and see which .dlls are using the older "feature" Post #14 by tetonbob has a link to run bleepingcomputer's DDS utility.

Please note KB197571's last review date, and the additional info link goes back to Win95:

Article ID: 197571 - Last Review: November 21, 2006 - Revision: 4.1
APPLIES TO
  • Microsoft Win32 Application Programming Interface, when used with:
    • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0
    • Microsoft Windows 2000 Standard Edition
    • the operating system: Microsoft Windows XP
We (MS) do not recommend that applications use this feature or rely on this feature. There are other techniques that can be used to achieve similar results.

From a google search on the mbam forum:


As an aside;
I was using my machine the morning of the 30th when at 2:42am I had a popup for the Zemana full program (Z) alerting me that it had stopped protecting my machine. I uninstalled it and am now running the free version of Z.

Curiously, It (the free Z) told me that since I had Firefox protected with another program (Trusteer Rapport) It would no longer protect Firefox, that behaviour wasn't noticed when I was running the full Z program.
The full Z noticed the intrusion of Trusteer and they worked side by side after I allowed the rule change.


David, if either you or Bill do run across another Z giveaway please keep me in mind.


Now, I have to get busy making pork and sauerkraut, Happy New Year!

Thanks for the heads up.
When you add the activation number to an existing account, it will only bring it up to a total of 365 days. It will not add 365 more days to what you have left.
The activation number is found in the readme text doc, after D/L the program and extracting the files.
If you follow Zemana on Twitter, they will add another 90 days to your subscription.
