    I download it directly from Malwarebytes website, where I always download it. It's the paid version.

    Indeed. Either add it to exclusions, or get rid of that junk, meaning Malwarebytes.
    Yep, I'm beginning to think that the sainted Malwarebytes is becoming bloated and going in the wrong direction--particularly with the Ransomware module. Trying to do too much with a single app.

    I disagree! I don't believe that Malwarebytes is becoming bloated or going in the wrong direction.
    It's a great piece of software that's going in the right direction. It's flagging programs to prevent the click happy users that don't bother to read the download conditions or uncheck unwanted downloads. EasyUS as previously mentioned has been known to download unwanted programs, in the main, TuneUp Utilities, Open Candy Tool bar... MAMBAM makes the click happy folks stop and think before they click.

    EaseUS Partition Master installer, epm.exe is being flagged by Malwarebytes as a PUP. It contains OpenCandy which is used to install other, non-wanted software. It also blocks Outbound connection attempts to dpd.securestudies.com and is considered Riskware.

    I've uninstalled EaseUS Partition Master for now, even though I like and have used it in the past.
    Hi folks
    Even Minitool partition manager needs care when installing -- there's a popup for some A/V software -- just refuse to accept and then everything installs normally.

    I loathe systems that do this - and a lot of people if they just go click, click etc will miss these.

    The only reason I kept this piece of software is that it is actually a decent tool -- but I hate this "sneakerware" being bundled with install - so always READ CAREFULLY any popups even when installing decent software from their main site.

    Cheers
