Good. Could you describe as exactly as possible the problem you are having with the cursor?

Usually a spinning circle indicates that the system is busy. When you carry out certain operations, especially on some systems, some operations can take a while, and the "spinning circle" indicates that they are ongoing.

If that is the case here, then we can try to speed up your system a little bit, so that this is not such a long wait.

When you say "Has anyone figured out why the cursor changes to a circle then the page moves any direction? ", do you mean you are scrolling the page, or dragging it?

If you do something else like "Hit either mouse key and it stops for a short time", while the system is busy, it may stop the busy signal momentarily, but that only suspends the operation, and you will have to wait longer for it to finish.

Unfortunately, the free download button leads to another site (it varies) with misleading ads. AND, the button is on the left, not the right.

That's a good point! I simply assumed he meant the program found nothing and that was why he did not post the log.

Indeed, I just tried that a few times, got a few different sites. I did not realise that was the case. I think I am getting too old for this!

I guarantee you he is not running Malwarebytes. If you notice, he has not answered one of my pointed questions in that regard. He skates around the answer every time. In all honesty, I think we're just being strung along at this point.

Possible I suppose. Only thing to do is wait and see.

IMHO, this was a HUGE mistake on Malwarebyte's part. I do understand bandwidth issues, but they have taken what has become an almost "required" tool and made it very difficult to download for novice users. There used to be an "alternate" link that let you download it directly from their site, but it has been removed as far as I can see.

Even when you arrive at the download page (the external one), there is a price listed for the product. It does not indicate that you are downloading the free version. This has really become a bit of a mess.
