pmb.exe

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I get this popup at least once an hour:



I did some research and pmb.exe seems to have been installed with APB Reloaded which I installed about a week ago. Coincidentally, I installed a free trial of MalwareBytes Pro around the same time.

Since the free trial will expire eventually and I won't have real time protection anymore, should I be concerned about pmb.exe? It seems to have a bad rep on the process libraries, but I would like to keep APB Reloaded.

Norton doesn't pick it up in either scans or real time protection. MalwareBytes only picks it up in the real time protection.

Edit: Just got the same message, but now it's an incoming connection.

Have you tried locating the infected file and deleting it? If it's a virus, it probably isn't necessary for the program you want.

If you can't delete it, you can always prevent it from opening on startup. Here's how:
1. open the 'Run' dialogue.
2. Type in 'msconfig' and hit enter
3. go to the startup tab
4. uncheck pmb.exe and hit apply

I would recommend scanning your computer with Superantispyware. It occasionally picks up things that malwarebytes doesn't.

Check the link for what PMB.exe is. It's based on the location of PMB.exe

If you find PMB.exe, tell us where you found it.

Edit: If APB needs it, then an exception needs to be made with MalwareBytes.

It installs when downloading APB reloaded. Just delete it, it's no longer useful.
