I have Windows Defender disabled.
I run the following in real time:
WinPatrol Pro
SpyWareBlaster
Avast Free
Script Sentry
MBAM Pro
My MBAM settings by rt clk Options:
FileSystem Protection -- checked
Website Blocking - - checked
Start with Windows -- checked

Update settings: Under tab:
Update: Nothing to check
Settings: Update Setting Tab: nothing is checked.
               Scheduler Settings Tab: Update -- On Reboot   and  Update --  
Hourly

Since there is basically no cpu usage by any of the above while not on the  
Internet, I will not try an uninstall and install of MBAM until I get a  
fresh copy of ver 1.75. I'm in no rush since the high memory usage doesn't  
seem to effect my system, Win7HE 64bit 8GB ram.
Have a fun 4th.

Thanks for the link;
In case you missed my last replay on heavy MBAM memory usage, here it is  
again:

Well, now I do. Dumb me.  :(
I was reading the Peak Working Set (Memory) values in Task Manager and not
the Memory (Private Working Set) numbers.
Now my readings are comparable to FredW's reading.
Time for a beer, ice cold with the glass frosted.  :)
Have a happy 4th.

MBAM is *NOT* antivirus. You still need antivirus whether or not you use  
MBAM.

I *KNOW* that. And Norton is *NOT* an anti-malware program.

Fred was being a smartass and I was just giving it right back to him.

Asking charlie if he didn't trust NAV wasn't being a smartass? Again,  
you don't trust MBAM?

Re: OptimizerPro - What is this?

Quoted text here. Click to load it

No.

I do not see the logic why charliec uses NAV (or any AV product) to warn
for an intruder and then uses Mbam to remove the intruder.
I wonder why doesn't he use his AV software to not only warn for an
intruder but also to remove the intruder.

So I asked for a possible explanation.
(and thanks to you, I guess we will never get an answer.)


I have told charliec how he could uninstall Mbam 2.0.2 and install 1.75.
I have told him how he could prevent 1.75 from updating to 2.0.2.
I have told him Mbam is NOT anti-virus but anti-malware.
(and Dustin confirmed this because you did ask the same question.)
All that time you contributed NOTHING.

But you are so suspicious that you talk about non-existing prejudices
and non-existing bad behavior.
Why? Bad tempered? Trolling?


I am just a user with a good AV product and Mbam Pro both running
real-time without problems.
When I think I can help someone (in this case charliec) I tell what I do
and how my settings are.
It is then up to the person I try to help to do as I do or not.
That choice is not mine.


As I said before, for me you are only trolling, interfering with false
accusations and only argumenting to disrupt this discussion.

I quit trying to help charliec, you may do so.


Have a nice day.

Then what do you call it?
Quoted text here. Click to load it

I don't know why it warned him and didn't remove the installer. As I've  
stated, Norton will remove .exe files that it deems unsafe. Maybe it  
wasn't an .exe file? I've clicked on links in search that took me to a  
FBI ransomware page and Norton blocked it, but I still had to use task  
manager to close my browser because it was stuck on the page.

Asked what same question? How to keep 1.75 from updating? Yes, I did, in  
another thread. What does that have to do THIS thread and OP Pro?

And what "good AV product" is that?
Quoted text here. Click to load it

Oh please...first you wrote "4. You should consider replacing Norton by  
a better AV product."

Then you followed up with the smartass comment "And you used Mbam to  
remove the intruder and not NAV? Why? Did you not trust NAV?".

Then I asked you "do you not trust MBAM?", which you have yet to answer.

Norton is one of the best AV programs on the market. It's obvious that  
you just want to slam Norton without merit.


EOT for me.

Norton has malware detection also, like most full bore paid anti-virus  
programs.\
Where did you get the idea that Norton doesn't check for malware?
You sound very clueless about those programs.
No, you didn't get back at Fred, you just made a bigger fool of yourself.

What does payware have to do with anything?

Did I say that it didn't check for malware? I said it's not an  
anti-malware program.

Quoted text here. Click to load it

Only a clueless person would suggest removing Norton and installing a  
"better" antivirus program.

Can Norton find SOME malware, sure it can, but that isn't it's main  
purpose and you know it. Or at least you should know.

If an antivirus program's main function was to find/stop/remove malware,  
then there would be no need to run anti-malware programs like  MBAM,  
SAS, Emsisoft, CCE, etc.,right?









Re: OptimizerPro - What is this?


Quoted text here. Click to load it

Again, I'm not trying to start any issues or anything else.. but

Technically, Antivirus programs main function is indeed the  
prevention/detection and removal if possible of most malware families.  
Primarily, viruses. MBAM, SAS, Emisoft, etc fill a niche where the antivirus  
doesn't necessary place as high on it's detection/removal list. That would be  
non replicating malware that aren't necessarily trojans on their own. IE:  
advertising, toolbar addons, etc. Both antivirus and malwarebytes, etc should  
be able to detect harmful trojans like remote access trojans, bots, etc.  
Things either inherently malicious or designed to allow malicious activity.

I don't know how often/when other antimalware companies cull their databases  
to reduce their programs memory needs, but I do know that Malwarebytes has  
done this several times; trading older definitions out for newer ones;  
instead of rewriting the engine to make it efficient. When they trade out,  
the program is no longer able to detect that specific malware. I'd say it's a  
safe bet, your AV program if it could detect it before, still can now.

Norton 360 checks downloaded files before opening them. I've had it  
remove .exe files after they were scanned.
