Both of the problems you described aren't security issues - they are configuration issues, therefore it is not surprising that "Malwarebytes does not solve most of these problems"
Quote from oraclewizard77:
Malwarebytes does not solve most of these problems. Another issue just happened today after updating flash, all videos on youtube were green screen.
I ran Malwarebytes since I thought maybe I accidentally installed some spyware, but it said I was not infected.
However, after a google search, I found out others had similar problems, and it was solved by right clicking on the video, then clicking settings, and unchecking hardware acceleration. I don't remember ever selecting hardware acceleration in the 1st place, but maybe it was installed by default by the updated version of flash.
There is a big difference between malware and poorly written software/unintended consequences.
And as someone else mentioned, if you are going to run things like Adobe Flash and Java you should let it update when it wants to - they are finding new exploit vectors for both of these all the time, running an older version leaves you vulnerable.
