Read About Malwarebytes Amnesty Program

June 30, 2015

If you have been pirating the Malwarebytes Anti-malware Premium version, you will receive an amnesty.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium

The developers of Malwarebytes is rolling out a new licensing key system to track their licensees and to prevent pirating; however, to bring this system up to speed they are giving the software pirates an amnesty by giving them a 1 year subscription key (for FREE). From what I have researched, the developer, “in a nutshell”, lost track of who was legal and who was not; and, the only way to remedy the issue was to perform an audit to collect data to determine what keys are still alive, and who are they used by. If you are a true pirate, the furthest you will get is a year’s worth of Malwarebytes. To read a good article about this CLICK HERE

What the end user of Malwarebytes will see, whether you are a pirate of not, is the following message:

Select the option below (in your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium product) that describes how you originally received your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro or Premium license. We’ll assign you a new key, and you’ll be good to go.

  1. I’m not sure where I got my key, or I downloaded it from the Internet. (Select this option and we will issue you a brand-new key with 12 free months of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium.)

  2. I purchased my key. (Select this option and we will issue you a replacement key with the same license to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as your original key.)

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is an industry-leading scanner that detects and removes worms, Trojans, rootkits, rogues, spyware, and other dangerous malware from your home PC. There is a FREE version and a paid premium version. The FREE version does not perform background scanning; whereas, the premium version (with background scanning and more features) is ready and alert at all times.

Keep An Installed Copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (FREE) On Your PC

December 22, 2014

I have featured the FREE version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in the past and thought this would be a good time to once again promote this “must have” security software. One thing to point out at the start is that the FREE version of Malwarebytes is only a scanning utility and does not provide real-time protection. You can get the real-time protection by purchasing the commercial version of their software. Don’t let this deter you from downloading the FREE version. I use the FREE version and make a habit to manually download the updates and perform routine scans of my computer.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is the best out there when it comes to detection and removal of Malware. According to OPSWAT, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is the most popular security product installed by users. I guess the important thing I am trying to get across is that it is important to have this software on your PC so that you can fire it up, at a moments noticed, when you suspect a problem.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware’s industry-leading scanner detects and removes malware like worms, Trojans, rootkits, rogues, spyware, and more. All you have to do is launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and run a scan. It’s that simple. Or if you want even better protection, consider Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium and its instant real-time scanner that automatically prevents malware and websites from infecting your PC. Either way you’re crushing malware and foiling hackers…

Anti-Malware/Anti-Spyware – Detects and eliminates malware your antivirus will miss.

Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit – Removes rootkits and repairs the files they damage.

Advanced Malware Removal – Employs industry-leading technology to completely remove malware code.

Terminate Known Malware Processes With RKill – Then Run Your Security Software

December 15, 2014

Did you ever wrestle with a Malware infection, think you have the PC cleaned; but, when you reboot the PC it comes back with a vengeance? This is where you need to have the utility by BleepingComputer.com, called RKill in your toolbox.

What RKill does is that it will attempt to terminate known malware processes.  It does not delete any files and only stops the malware processes from temporarily occurring, giving you that window of opportunity to run your security software (such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware). To learn, in detail, what RKill does and and what it doesn’t — click here

Below is what RKill looks like running, in a console screen. That console screen will continue to run until it RKill has finished. Once finished, the box will close and a log will be displayed showing all of the processes that were terminated by RKill and while RKill was running.

RKill

RKill just kills 32-bit and 64-bit malware processes and scans the registry for entries that would not allow you to run various legitimate programs. When scanning the Registry, Rkill will search for malicious Image File Execution Objects, DisallowRuns entries, executable hijacks, and policies that restrict your use of various Windows utilities. When changing Windows Registry entries it will create a backup of these entries and save them in the rkill folder on your desktop. Each registry backup will contain a time stamp so that the backups are not overwritten on subsequent runs of Rkill. For a list of changes in Rkill, please see the change log at the bottom of this post.

What’s On My PC – Geek Squeaks’ For Your Week

February 2, 2014

This week we are featuring 7 different ‘squeaks’:  A really nice Windows 8 App that you need to grab; Rumors about an update to Windows 8.1; A tech site that will hit your tech sweet spot; FREE software to remove malware; A video on how to make a phone or tablet stand; A wallpaper for the geek types out there; and, an Acer Ultrabook that is a real powerhouse.

[ COMMENTS ARE WELCOME – CLICK HERE ]

Twitter

Geek Squeaks’ for the Week is a weekly round-up of tech products, news, software, apps, wallpapers, articles, you name it;  from my favorite tech web sites… I just plain love tech!

#1 – A REALLY NICE WINDOWS 8 APP that gives you the ability to quickly search and download Youtube videos (coverts to MP4) and/or audio (converts to MP3). I tested out this app (called Download YouTube) and found it to do what it claims. I was able to quickly search for YouTube music videos that I was interested in, download them, and convert the audio in the video to MP3. Definitely one of the few Windows 8 Apps that I have on my PC…

Go to the Windows Store on your PC and search for Download YouTube or find out more HERE


#2 – BASED ON A SERIES OF LEAKS there is possibly (already) going to be an update to Windows 8.1…  You got to be kidding???  Microsoft, I do believe, is listening to their user base. Most people, like you at home, were thrown a doctored curveball when you got that new computer and it started up to a bunch of blocks.  Anyhow, PCWorld has a nice article, Windows 8.1 Update 1: Everything we know so far that will help to bring you up to speed. I think the forthcoming changes, if rumored to be true, will get Microsoft back on track for desktop and notebook computer users…

With the next update to Windows 8.1, Microsoft really wants mouse-and-keyboard users to feel comfortable with modern apps.

We now have a good sense of what to expect in Windows 8.1 Update 1, thanks to a series of leaks from Win8China and reliable Russian blogger WZor, along with reporting by Paul Thurrott and ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley, two writers with a strong track record for breaking early Windows news.


#3 – THIS WEEK’S RANDOM TECH SITE PICK (with sample article), from Bookmarks4techs.com, is:

#4 – A WINDOWS PROGRAM TO REMOVE MALWARE from your PC, called Malwarebytes Chameleon

One of the strategies often used, when a computer is infected by malware, is to “try” and get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed; HOWEVER, many times the malware itself will prevent the install. This is where Malwarebytes Chameleon comes into play. Malwarebytes Chameleon technologies gets Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed and running when blocked by malicious programs.


#5 – A VIDEO ON HOW TO EASILY MAKE A TABLET OR SMARTPHONE STAND that can be folded up (and actually could be carried with you if made out of an old credit card):

Easily Make A Tablet or Smartphone Stand


#6 – THE WALLPAPER OF THE WEEK is very techie in nature in that it is a pic of the inside of a hard drive. This wallpaper is featured at hdwallpapers and can be downloaded to match the resolution of your screen. I definitely added this on to my collection…

#7 – THE TECH PRODUCT OF THE WEEK features the Acer Aspire S7-392-9890 13.3-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook. This is an example of the direction that ultrabooks are heading with powerful processors, solid state drives, long battery life; all in a thin architecture.

Acer’s thinnest touch Ultrabook™, The Acer Aspire® S7 is razor-slim at 0.51″ and a featherlight at 2.87 lbs.
