You should see it under mbam.exe if you look under processes or details (and of course you'll see that it uses memory).

As for MBAM running in the background, I don't think it is.

If you have the Premium / Trial then it would be running in the background unless you disabled it somehow.

In my experience it was about 306 MB.

Yes you can, but there's stuff that MBAM can detect that WD cannot.

I do want to note that Malwarebytes can be a RAM hog.

just browse safe and dont click on random links or ads.

You don't have to click on malicious advertisements to be infected by them. Have you heard of such a thing called malvertising or exploit kits?

If you're going to rely on safe browsing and not have an antivirus, it is essential to have an ad blocker.

Scanning files live in real time, like scanning files instantly after you download them or scanning files before they can be ran or executed.

If it still let's me do a basic scan after the trial, that's all I need.

It does. just no realtime scanning or scheduled scanning.

As far as I know, there are some antiviruses like ClamAV that have horrendous amounts of "PUA" detections that they shouldn't have.

But as far as Malwarebytes anti-malware, its PUP detections are usually adware, toolbars, and such that I agree should be removed.

Are you able to reformat your hard disk drive and reinstall Windows?

so im working on my part list for my $30,000 monstrosity of a pc,

Like do you really plan to build this? I don't think so.

AVG Anti-Virus MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Kapersky Total Security Spyware Doctor CCleaner (I want to make 100% sure my next PC is secure in every way, and one virus program wont eliminate every single Adware, Spyware, Malware, Trojan Horse and Virus ever made so better safe than sorry)

Firstly, AVG and Kaspersky are going to conflict with each other if you try to run them both simultaneously on the same system.

Secondly, there is no combination of security software that can eliminate 100% of all threats. You can get close, however.

Thirdly, CCleaner is not an antivirus.

so what ssd would you recommend as a backup drive?

What's the point of this build?

Yes it has lower detection rates, but that is in a completely unrealistic environment - I'd argue that for the typical competent user its really hard to get viruses unless you deliberately click on obvious phishing/malware scam crap and don't use adblockers/script killers.

What about network attacks and intrusions? You don't have to do anything to be affected by those (if you don't have a good antivirus and firewall).

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Windows Defender...?"

Windows Defender... Is it enough

No.

Does it suffice?

No.

Do I need more protection?

Yes.

It's basically just a virus scanner with poor detection rates (check AV-TEST for more info) as well as a firewall if you enable Windows Firewall.

Malwarebytes is a good program to pair with an antivirus.

IOBit 360? Wouldn't earn my recommendation.

Why do you even want a prebuilt in the first place? You could custom build something much better than any of those options.

My experiences with Corsair have been sour, a handful at least of times.

How so?

And SeaSonic.....well... they are good - but .....

...

I'm just an EVGA fan boy because they've never let me down. Customer support, warranty, the mutliple G2 550Ws I've bought have all performed as advertised, and the G3's I'll be getting next I have no doubt about.

You can certainly go wrong with EVGA. Take for example, their 400W.

Basically it all boils down that you don't necessarily need an EVGA PSU to be a PC enthusiast.

A G2 or G3 on the other hand, is a must.

What about some of Corsair and SeaSonic's good PSUs, not just EVGA's?

If you mean your CPU cooler is failing, that has nothing to do with your CPU, and you should first replace your CPU cooler and see if anything changes.

I was on support call with EVGA and we both went down the line on what could possibly make the pc not work and the only thing we could actually pin down was the CPU. I looked it up and it's pretty rare, but it can still happen.

Correct. Have you run the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool?

How do you know that your CPU is causing the problem?

I can't get on to see my cpu or gpu temps. From the times that the computer has worked before crashing again the BIOS said the cpu was at like 41 degrees Celsius and the motherboard at 31 degrees.

That's not too bad as far as temperatures.

I already did that, I waited 15 minutes to reinstall it.

I didn't notice that at first, I see. Do you have any other PCs to test your parts in?

  • Have you tried clearing your motherboard's CMOS battery?

Older paste as in the paste that has been previously used or just the paste from the aftermarket cooler that hasn't been used?

Then that would be your best option until you have new aftermarket thermal paste.

Firstly, how could an optical drive be fragmented? An optical drive reader itself cannot be fragmented, and CDs and DVDs usually shouldn't be fragmented very much since they're usually not written too much.

Don't do the second one. As far as the first one, does the stock cooler have its own thermal paste?

What? It could explode if it doesn't plug in? A video card won't explode just because it's not plugged in. In this case, it's because of EVGA's horrible initial design of their video cards, and they deserve lawsuits and boycotts against them for this.

No, don't reuse your old thermal paste, and don't run your PC without thermal paste.

The PSU was bad I guess. Got a new PSU, EVGA 500B and it works great now.

Well usually your old PSU (Corsair CX450M) would be better than your new PSU (EVGA 500B).
