    I'm fairly sure that there shouldn't be a problem with updating the BIOS.
    The tutorials are for UEFI because it is a different motherboard, though the method is the same.

    Slartybart, I think you're right there - the BIOS is pretty old, and the OP says this had also been happening in W8 before the upgrade:
    From Post #3.
    Thanks, was looking for confirmation after Jcorella17 pointed to the UEFI reference - I believe that's a red herring and the P.1` BIOS offered on the MSI support page should be flashed.

    The consensus is that Jcorella17 SHOULD update the BIOS to P.1

    I'll hold out on updating the bios and reduce the risk of me messing up my PC.

    My old RAM was very faulty, it could not even finish a pass on memtest, so I'm hoping it was the main problem. I installed a new set of RAM(s) yesterday (2x8) and the bug hasn't popped up.
    No need to enable Steam at startup since it only takes a few moments to start manually.

    If the bug occurs again I'll move onto the next step and install the BIOS update.

    CRYING TEARS OF JOY!
    I FIGURED OUT HOW TO TEMPORARILY FIX IT!

    1. Bug appears
    2. Exit MBAM
    3. Network and internet window stops freezing
    4. Disable then re-enable the wifi adapter
    5. Wifi returns
    6. Reboot MBAM


    Wonder why Mbam does this though...

    DM log before I exited MBAM is attached.

    Great work figuring out it was Mbam and thanks for posting the solution that worked on your system.

    Current Mbam (free) version: 2.2.1.1043

    Are you up-to-date?

    No - then you should update

    Yes - then you should report it to Malwarebytes

    edit: I just looked at the collector info and Malwarebytes show vers. 2.2.1.1043

    I am not really much shocked, the web protection feature does give many users problems unfortunately and it sounds like the web protection feature is causing problems.

    I'm actually using the premium version of Mbam, just deactivated encase it was the problem when it happened, THEN I did the DM_log.

    Next time it happens I'll disable the web protection module and see if it fixes it.

    Posted from mobile, excuse the quick response.

    I bet this is related to the HIPS part of malwarebytes, if you are running the full version. Are you keeping that software up to date? I had a customer that had a problem with connectivity and when I disabled HIPS that fixed the problem. Updating malwarebytes which was 6 months out of date permanently fixed the problem.

    Ok sorry didnt see that, it looks like then that this is a bug with your particular setup. I would check to see if the reported BIOS update description mentions a fix of any kind related to your wireless connection, or check to see if you have the most recent drivers for your wireless connection. Other than that reporting the problem to malwarebytes is a good idea.
