Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

The numbers after .exe make no sense. Are you 100% positive you downloaded it from MalwareBytes? I uploaded the installer to Virustotal showing you that it is clean. Here is the official download link.

You have about 7 or 8 ongoing threads now. Something tells me that there is something wrong with your pc. It maybe not be just a Norton thing.

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

it's alright with my pc! here is the evidence from my history browser ! as already mentioned the link is correct, look for yourself.. 

compare dates and time in the first image, and thismy PC  clean 100%,I use it only for video games,for Internet i use a notebook!

Also in 2014 it happened to me something like that, the official website is not reliable (malwarebytes.com) 

practically,I did download instead of being sent on the site download.cnet.com, download from the website itself it.malwarebytes.com

Your first screenshot shows the file ending with .partial

Try another browser and see if you can get a complete download.

It's definitely an FP.

The numbers are the correct version number.

For a variey of reasons I am not currently using my NS, and my download with an excellent security suite installed, and additional anti-malware add-ons, gave no indication of anything being amiss with that file.

Does NS use ELAM drivers?

Malewarebytes uses ELAM drivers and at least one other security program vendor has stated that it's product is not compatible with MWB cuz they both use ELAM drivers--that's a posssible explanation, though doubtful.

NB: Malwarebytes has disputed the issue that two ELAM drivers for security programs are necessarily incompatible.

1. The numbers after .exe (sha256, 5a141ea85724385ee7e68c10247e154bbd72ce1a656ebede99bb0fca5bb5974a):

2. My NS (newest build) flagged nothing.

3. I tested the Italiano version of MBAM (hxxp://download.cnet dot com/malwarebytes-anti-malware/windows.html?hlndr=1&part=dl-x&lang=it, aka, mbam-setup-cnet.35891-2.2.1.1043.exe)@ hXXp://files.downloadnow-1 .com/s/software/14/50/38/36/mbam-setup-cnet.35891-2.2.1.1043.exe?token=1478951616_e74783546f494d0d01a90e1738918baa&fileName=mbam-setup-cnet.35891-2.2.1.1043.exe and found nothing:

Then, plz try:

  • re-downloading the setup file;
  • using a valid VPN app to get the full setup file if your internet connection has been blocked;
  • updating your Norton software by running LiveUpdate

Contact Norton Virus Protection Promise if you're still concerned about potential threats.

Additional advice:

1. Learn how to customize a 3rd-party download: test shows that Wise Registry Cleaner keeps bundling/offering the infamous SpyHunter.

2. Personally, you do not need to touch so-called registry cleaner. For more info re case studies, you may review this and/or this. All in all, they are just digital snake oil on the web.

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

when I installed wise I did not install SpyHunter, I deleted was still wise for single use,

 is a false positive? I mean, I downloaded from the official site.

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

is a false positive? it could be because I used microsoft edge?

the strange thing is that he downloaded from the official site, He did not send me in download.cnet.com! 

soon after he gave me the typical page '' thanks you '' always on the official website

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

There is nothing wrong with Cnet. Tons of software manufacturers have download links which lead to Cnet/ Download.com. I gave you the direct link for MalwareBytes. Click on it please. It is obvious what you downloaded was clearly not MalwareBytes. Thanks

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

wait, wait please! ''It is obvious what you downloaded was clearly not MalwareBytes'' How is it possible ? did you see the third photo? (my history browser) ? thanks ! :)

the site malwarebytes where you go send me in the site download.cnet.com, Instead it to me just downloaded from the official website itself (it.malwarebytes.com,this thing really does not make sense)I think this that's the problem! anyway Norton rightly has done its job

PS because now, should I consider the official website of malwarebytes reliable? I think it's unacceptable what happened It is my history browser proves! in the past if I'm not mistaken such a thing has happened to me again (1-2 years ago)

really thanks for any response :)

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

The link I sent you comes from being copied and pasted right from MalwareBytes website. What I provided was a direct link. As soon as you click on it the download starts. But I am in the US. You also have tons of other issues so it's hard to fully comprehend anything. You have about 8 on going threads which tells me your have some serious issues with your PC that are unrelated to just Norton. A lot of companies offer Cnet/ Download.com to download their products. Avast, AVG, MalwareBytes, Panda, CCleaner. It is nothing new. The screen shot you posted tells me you did not download the official name.exe., others even showed you this. Maybe your traffic for downloads gets re directed to download.com.

Re: malwarebytes download virus ? from official web site ???

I've seen this before and as DaveH mentioned, it shows as ".partial", so my guess is the download was interrupted for one reason or another.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

@georgi mihaylov 91"

were you trying to download MBAM@ https://it.malwarebytes.com/ using Microsoft Edge?

If so, plz try re-downloading the software by using other browser like Firefox/Chrome.

Or, you can visit https:// www.malwarebytes. com/ if you prefer to use the us-en server.

One more thing: have you scanned your system using an up-to-date Norton software?

 Contact Norton Virus Protection Promise in no time, if you're still concerned about any other threats on your computer.
