And I reiterate -

The message is coming directly from the Malicious Website Blocking feature of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

I guarantee that if you disable this feature, those messages will stop popping up.

Have a look at the following link to a FAQ on the MBAM Forums Website - It may help to shed some light on the issue:

IP Protection Module

In v1.40, Malwarebytes introduced IP Protection into Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, to prevent the user being infected in the first place. The following is information on what this does, and how it works.

What does IP Protection do?

IP Protection provides an additional layer of security for your computer, by preventing access to known malicious IP addresses and IP ranges, for example, NetDirekt, which is host to the Internet Service Team.

How does it do this?

When you ask your browser to connect to a website, Windows uses DNS or the HOSTS file (depending on configuration), to convert that domain name into it's corresponding IP address (e.g. <> MBAM intercepts the packet communications, to determine whether or not the IP address is known for malicious activity, and if so, blocks the communication.

How does it inform you?

MBAM informs you a malicious IP has been blocked by presenting a bubble notification at the bottom of the screen (next to the system tray), and it also writes a log file.

So good news I guess. I remembered that for some reason when I have Malwarebytes installed it keeps me from using the website MRTZCMP3. So I Uninstalled it and the website works and the message is gone. Does this mean I can't use Malwarebytes if I still want access to MRTZCMP3? Or is there some kind of trusted sites list. In addition to that it looks like the funmoods are still there so I guess if anyone could help with that and let me know a way to fix it I would be good. Thanks.

Just noticed that it appears the funmoods are gone. I have restarted my computer and the funmoods have not popped back up. If I click the downward arrow to the right of the google logo on the google search bar at the top and go to mange search engines and it does not appear to be there. I was wondering does it just randomly come back or should it come back every time you restart the computer?
