because it seems there are so few smiling these days.

And because life is too short. Too short really.

La vita e bella!

Beautiful that way!

Dedicated to all LzD members!

Smile, without a reason why
Love, as if you were a child
Smile, no matter what they tell you
Don't listen to a word they say
'Cause life is beautiful that way

Tears, a tidal wave of tears
Light that slowly disappears
Wait before you close the curtain
There's still another game to play
And life is beautiful that way

Here, in his eyes forever more
I will always be as close as you remember from before
Now that you're out there on your own
Remember what is real and what we dream is love alone

Keep the laughter in your eyes
Soon, your long awaited prize
We'll forget about our sorrow
And think about a brighter day
'Cause life is beautiful that way

First thing first!

I am not an expert. Just ... I love problem solving and solve Rubik's cube.  ;D

So... what I am saying, is what I did as an ordinary user.

The problem here made me think a lot and I'm reading with a lot of curiosity what everyone says.

The first weird thing is that you have internet connection but no connection when trying to activate Malwarebytes.

In the web, as Corrine said, there are many cases where users reported similar errors. One of them, solved the problem by changing a Firewall option. Winchester also referred to Firewall blocking the connection.

I tried to manage Windows Defender Firewall settings, but it is not possible.

Searching, I found a thread in the Malwarebytes forum, talking about managing Windows Firewall. They talked about a free Malwarebytes product which is managed by binisoft right now (

The product can be downloaded here:

According to the software's description:

Windows Firewall Control is a powerful tool which extends the functionality of Windows Firewall and provides new extra features which makes Windows Firewall better. It runs in the system tray and allows the user to control the native firewall easily without having to waste time by navigating to the specific part of the firewall.

I downloaded it and went to the Profiles settings (See attachment MBAM2). The default option is Low filtering. I changed it to the recommended Medium filtering, closed it and went to Malwarebytes.

That is what I got: Attachment MBAM1

The same error hay59 is getting when trying to activate the program.


From the logs, I noticed that you had installed some Firewall related programs. I can't recall them now. Now they are uninstalled. But it is possible those programs changed some settings, or established their own rules.


Why not install Windows Firewall Control program and check the Profiles settings? If it is not Low Filtering, then that is how the problem is explained.


Is there a way to check the same setting in Firewall, without a third party application? I believe it has to do with the Outbound connections. In there, MBAM has to be in the Allow state.

Today, the option disappeared again.

Not a big deal, of course, but I will see if I can get it back. If I find something, I'll post here again.  :)

No. There was not such an option.

Corrine suggested this link:

Since I don't have Group Policy Editor, I went to the registry: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System

and created this value setting it to 1: BlockDomainPicturePassword

Now the picture sign in option is available.

Thank you.  :)

I checked and I see the picture sign-in option is still listed at Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options as the last item on the list.  Try setting it up again.

Not for me...

What I noticed:

No picture sign-in option anymore...

OK, I thought you said that the wifi issue was resolved, that's why I suggested to try it.

These lines in the logs have to do with the connectivity issue:

Error: (10/21/2020 09:38:47 AM) (Source: Microsoft-Windows-WLAN-AutoConfig) (EventID: 10000) (User: NT AUTHORITY)
Description: WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.

Module Path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Rtlihvs.dll
Error Code: 126

Perhaps a check regarding services, to see if something is missing would help. There are several suggestions online, but I'm not sure what is the best for the specific issue.

Can you try this too?

Assuming that your wifi card is working now (!/need-help-last-micro-soft-update-took-my-wifi-away!!/msg202857/#msg202857)

Unplug Ethernet and the Netgear adapter and connect to the internet via the computer's wifi card.

Can you download/update Malwarebytes?

The ethernet port on a laptop is shown in the attached image.

P.S. The suggestion about disabling the adopter and enabling the wifi card applies only if your card is working properly.

Plug the one end of the cord into the laptop and leave the other end where it is.

It took me 2 hours to install the update. No problems during the installation.
