Malwarebytes default settings

Q: Malwarebytes default settings

Malwarebytes does not recommend checking rootkits with its default settings when scanning so I  did not.  Why would this be recommended or should I check it anyways?  I think not.  Could it be that it would require much more time to check this pesky malware and the extra time needed would not be worth it?
 
It should be noted that I also have Microsoft Security Essentials and Webroot Secureanywhere endpoint protectoin (webroot being a closed system managed by Click for Support) whcih may presumably be monitiring rootkits already.  I am not sure? Thanks for any help!

Preferred Solution: Malwarebytes default settings

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Malwarebytes default settings

Antirootkit technology in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 is integrated into the scanner (under Detection Settings) in MBAM v2.0 but it is not enabled by default. If the "Scan for rootkits" setting is enabled, it will increase the length of the average scan time from previous versions which defeats the purpose of routinely using the recommended THREAT Scan to quickly check the most prevalent places for active malware....see Why is scan for rootkit off by default?Scanning for rootkits is only necessary for heavily infected systems or when malware symptoms are present but the THREAT Scan does not detect anthing.

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

I can't figure out how to change a basic setting. The program pops up every time I boot up and I can't figure out how to change this. I've been through all the settings and still can't see simple setting. I see the scheduling "tasks" there, but it won't let me change them without upgrading. I'm a little annoyed this is so non-intuitive; should be so simple. And fwiw: I like this program; I just don't want to run a scan constantly.

Yet I need help here.

2 why the hell does that folder NOT HIDDEN? Are yours not hidden as well? Of course the option to hide all system file is checked on my pc. The only reason I messed with that folder is because I thought it was just a normal folder and not a system folder. Anyway to get it back to be invisible?

My boyfriends computer wouldn't start up so we had a tech (friend) look at it. He did somethings to the computer including replacing the video card.

Now all of the programs are in the start up menu and starting when the computer starts up, but thats not the problem. I had gone into the start up menu and unchecked all those I don't want to start up and also went into some of the programs themselves and set them up so they did NOT start up when computer was turned on.

Everytime the computer is turned on all those programs still start up and the tool bar at the bottom is loaded with program icons.

Why do the programs keep going back to the default settings and how can i fix this.

There are ways to restore defaults to individual applications or OS components, but I am not aware of any "global default restore" capability. The closest I know of is with XP where you can roll-back the system to a previous checkpoint if the right options are enabled. But, there is even a problem here... if you don't know what you're doing you can "un-do" legitimate changes to the system. You may have better luck by figuring out how to use "permissions" to restrict what the users can and cannot update.

Can I change the default settings for Font and Font Size, and the Page Margins in WordPad and Microsoft Works 2000? If so, please tell me how. I am getting tired of having to manually change the settings every time I start a new document. Thank you, Robert
 

A:default settings

I don't believe this can be done in WordPad.

However, in Works:
Change Works Default Font
Selecting the default font in Microsoft Works is a simple matter. Open the MS Works word processor and in the menu bar to Format | Font | Style. Click on Font and Style and a dialog box pops up. In the dialog box, choose your font by highlighting it, then highlight the font size that you prefer. Select a color if you choose or leave the color on auto. Move to the right side of the dialog box and click on the Set Default button. This font choice will appear every time that you open Works. If you are changing the font for a single document only then click on the OK button. Click to expand...

and
Q. Every time I create a new document, I want it to follow a specific style, such as using default margin settings. How do I do this?

A. To specify custom settings that apply to each new document, you should create a blank document with those setting, and then save it as a template. To do this, use the instructions below:

Create a new document and apply any settings you want in your new documents. For example, if you want all new documents to have a .5-inch margin, apply that change in the Page Setup area.

On the File menu, click Save As.
Click Template.
Type a name for your template. To use this template for all new documents of that type, select Use This Template For All New Documents.
Click OK. Click to expand...

Hello Wan, and welcome to Vista Forums.

If this helps, this is what I found for this:






Valve Corporation uses .GCF games cache files both with its Steam computer game online content delivery platform (used for downloading computer games and content from the Internet), and with its Source 3D game engine (used to render realistic 3D graphics in their games). Valve Corporation also developed the game Half-life (along with its sequels) and the .GCF files is sometimes specifically associated with this game, although it is entirely possible that .GCF might be generated by any of Valve Corporation's games..



If you have Half-Life or another Valve brand game, then reinstalling the game to repair it without uninstalling it should fix the file association also.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Note that you cannot change defaults from within programs- true from Win 8 on.

Have you tried by these means?

Also note that there are special instructions about Chrome which you can find which many have had difficulties with.

Hi. I have a PC (5 years old now, I use it as a second machine) which has been working just fine until this week, but when I boot (into Windows 7 (x64) ) the PC soon freezes up completely, or I get a BSOD (the PC rebooted - I have changed the settings so it won't in future and will note down details). I do have one crashdump file (ntoskrnl.exe problem), but what I want to try at the moment is to return the clock settings to default. The M/B is a p6x58d-e. Googling has found lots (of course) on overclocking but all I can find is the default CPU Voltage (1.18).

The P/C has always been overclocked with no problem, giving a stable 3.8GHz. The settings I was using are below. Last week the O/C failed and in the BIOS the CPU Voltage of 1.30000V, which had been OK for years, was in purple, indicating a problem. The highest I could get the BIOS to accept was 1.20000. But I made no other changes to settings in the BIOS - maybe this is where the problem lies, changing the CPU Voltage alone?? I can enter the stock value of 1.18000V for CPU Voltage, but what else to I have to change in the following settings to return the PC to its default clock settings (DRAM Bus Voltage???). As this is not my principal PC any longer, I have no reason to overclock, if that is what is causing the problems now. (Any other suggestions as to the cause, otherwise?).

I checked Core temps BTW - all are fine under load. Running an AVG anti-virus scan has all cores running near max though... Read more

I ran system diagnostics and the only problem that showed up was that my disc drive failed to read CDs and DVDs - an issue that I was aware of earlier and that I thought might be related to the power issues with the battery. Anyways, after all that, my boyfriend thought it would be best to "restore to factory settings" when I was sleeping. (he doesn't know anything about computers but for some reason thought this would help) I know I should have asked for help BEFORE all this craziness but unfortunately I didn't! Now, when we turn the computer back on the Dell loading screen appears and the loading bar fills up and the screen goes black. That's it. If I turn it off and back on it'll do the same thing all over again. When the Dell loading screen comes up, I am able to push F2 or F12 but that is it. It won't do anything when I push F8. Please, PLEASE help! How do I reboot my system or reinstall everything with an unworking disc drive?

I really want to set it back to factory default settings but I have absolutely no idea how to do that every one tells me I have to have a disc to do it but like I said before I no longer have the discs so what do I do???
thanks
 

A:factory default settings???

Some pc's provide a restore partition (.IE,normal operating partition is c and the restore partition may be D)
Your user's manual will detail if you have a restore partition and if so,how to use it to get back to "out of box " condition.
If not,you might be able to go tho the Toshiba site and secure the restore discs for a fee.

Hi All

I have just installed a new printer however when I go to print it wants to send a fax. So I have to manually change the setting to the printer every time I want to print.

Does anyone know how I change the default printer setting to my printer and not fax option on the printer.

Cheers
 

A:Default printer settings.

have you got two printer elements in the list - one for printer and one for fax
if so
click on the printer one you want to set
right click on it
and you should be able to
set as default printer

Can anyone tell me how to restore the default security settings to my c and d drives? Or maybe just post theirs. I was messing with mine and can't seem to download from any sites.

I'm the sole owner and user of my pc so I would like to be logged in as administrator at all times. Running RC 7100.

Thank you

Hi Polorsport, Welcome to the forum,

Maybe you shouldn't fiddle

Try doing a system restore System Restore

I hope this helps, otherwise my best advice is a reinstall

I can't get my IE7 to keep web page settings (ie. my login settings for this forum) so I don't have to keep re-typing in my logins. It works on the new PC that I have at work. I am thinking about resetting the default settings. I checked the add-on list and it is pretty long. If I reset to defaults, it says that it is going to wipe them out. Will it automatically reload as needed or will it just further screw up my IE7.

Hi whilst working on a recent device set-up issue on Windows 8 - I have noticed some discrepancies on some of OS's in the registry and wondered if some of you could be kind enough to take a peek at your registry on Windows 8 and confirm a default Binary for me please:
Thanks so much
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE
SOFTWARE
MICROSOFT
WINDOWS
CURRENT VERSION
DEVICE METADATA

Next to last item in tree: Prevent Device Metadata from Network - Binary Value does it read 0 or 1? If have conflicting issues here and someone with an unamended registry can perhaps tell me the default value please? This will assist me greatly - As I see different values on my Laptops I am now unsure of the default

A:Default Settings for registry key - can anyone take a look

A:Change Default Settings

When you open one or the other you should be told that it's not your default, and given the opportunity to change it.

I have

WINME
OE6

My DEFAULT settings
in OE 6 will not remain in DEFAULT SETTINGS in

Accounts--
Properties--
Advanced
Servers

Because of this problem--it keeps cutting me off from OE6 with ERROR messages and I must review and correct my settings. I click DEFAULT and APPLY after I correct my settings--but constantly it goes back to the improper settings. It also disables my MSGTAG program.

How can I get them to stay fixed?

Thanks
 

A:DEFAULT settings in OE6 won't lock in

In Outlook Express,
Tools>Options>General tab,
under Default Messaging Programs
does it read:
This application is the default mail handler?

If not, click on the Make Default button.

If it does, do you have any other messaging program installed?

If not, download HijackThis version 1.99 and post a log here please.

Good afternoon all...

I come humbly come to the super gurus here to respectfully request assistance with my "global paper size" in Windows XP-professional. Here is a description of the problem:

Here at the office, I received a "rolled down" Dell Optiplex 755 from a Chinese programmer. This machine is 2X as fast as my old box. The machine functions great in every way except in the printing process. For whatever reason, it thinks that all the networked and physically connected printers are defaulted to A4 sized paper. So every time I need to print a document, I have to manually change the paper size from A4 to Letter. I have gone through the registry and changed every occurrence of the "A4" to "Letter", to no avail, my system still thinks all the printers are defaulted to paper size A4.

Does any one have any "magic bullets" to help me correct this issue? Please lemme know something soon... (it's driving me nuts )

Thanks in Advance!
