Yes, please refer to the updated opening post and my update notes here Re: Malwarebytes FREE and PRO/Premium - Mini-Review..
I guess just a one-fourth screen-shot link is okay?  Is this the Authentic IainB?   Grin smiley
________________________________________________

Your initial question was in:
@IainB
There is a new look for MBAM you may want to add?  Some functions are different as well.  Or gone... i.e. tabs, 3rd-party stuff, etc.
As of this posting you can scroll down and see some of the screens here:  https://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

What I was referring to was in particular response to that question, and it was was where the opening post of my mini-review now says So, for more information, please refer to that review - which also includes 10 or so screenshots of the MBAM GUI and windows. (see quote below).
I often post some/all of the comment-worthy text content sourced from other posts sans embedded hyperlinks/images, for purely informational purposes and so that people can independently use the hyperlink to the source to access the real McCoy for fuller information. However, I would generally avoid copying/duplicating all the content (including screenshots) of a perfectly good existing review - e.g., like the excellent one by PCmag - to avoid unnecessary duplication and the risk of detracting from their well-deserved potential traffic hits.

1. Using MBAM version series 2.x Premium (PAID)
============================================

...There's not a lot to report otherwise, except that the latest MBAM Premium version 2.x GUI and modus operandi are different/improved to the MBAM PRO version 1.x. These differences are discussed in a rigorous test review report of MBAM Premium, by the excellent Neil J. Rubenking - Lab Results Looking Up - Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 Review & Rating | PCMag.com.
So, for more information, please refer to that review - which also includes 10 or so screenshots of the MBAM GUI and windows.
(My thanks to @Arizona Hot for pointing out the PCMAG review in his comment Re: Interesting "stuff".)

Summary rating from that PCMAG review:
Note that Install and scan in Safe Mode is a newly-added feature, and the Chameleon and rootkit scan features were previously functions that were separate to and not integrated with MBAM v1.x.
PROS
Installs and scans in Safe Mode.
Chameleon technology resists malware attack.
Excellent results in malware removal lab test.
Improved user interface and ease of use.
Integrates previously separate rootkit scan.
CONS
No real-time protection against attack.
BOTTOM LINE
When other antivirus products fail, tech support
agents turn to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.
It remains a very effective cleanup tool, and
with version 2.0 it gets significant improvements
in appearance and ease of use.

A video filmed at Barcelona airport shows two planes almost crashing on the runway. An Airbus 340 is shown crossing the runway at El Prat Airport in Spain as a flight from Moscow is coming in to land. Seeing the Airbus in its path, the pilot of the Boeing 767 from Russia aborts the landing. The plane then lands safely on the runway shortly afterwards.

Impressive and haunting then-and-now photographic overlays, being used as part of the celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings. You couldn't really communicate this without the Internet. I've been to some of the places depicted, but never saw them in this light, though driving past the mile after mile of allied graveyards across parts of France was a pretty harrowing experience.
Take a look.

Clinically depressed man diagnosed as British.
George Farthing, an expatriate British man living in America, was recently diagnosed as clinically depressed, tanked up on anti-depressants and scheduled for controversial Shock Therapy when doctors realised he wasn't depressed at all - only British.

Mr Farthing, whose characteristic pessimism and gloomy perspective were interpreted as serious clinical depression, was led on a nightmare journey through the American psychiatric system. Doctors described Farthing as suffering with Pervasive Negative Anticipation - a belief that everything will turn out for the worst, whether it's trains arriving late, England's chances at winning any international sports event or even his own prospects to get ahead in life and achieve his dreams.

"The satisfaction Mr Farthing seemed to get from his pessimism seemed particularly pathological," reported the doctors.

"They put me on everything - Lithium, Prozac, St John's Wort," said Mr Farthing. "They even told me to sit in front of a big light for an hour a day or I'd become suicidal. I kept telling them this was all pointless and they said that it was exactly that sort of attitude that got me here in the first place."

Running out of ideas, his doctors finally resorted to a course of "weapons grade amphetamine", the only noticeable effect of which was six hours of speedy repetitions of the phrases "mustn't grumble" and "not too bad, really".

It was then that Mr Farthing was referred to a psychotherapist.

Dr Isaac Horney explored Mr Farthing's family history and couldn't believe his ears.

"His story of a childhood growing up in a grey little town where it rained every day, treeless streets of identical houses and passionately backing a football team who never won, seemed to be typical depressive ideation or false memory. Mr Farthing had six months of therapy but seemed to mainly want to talk about the weather - how miserable and cold it was in winter and later how difficult and hot it was in summer. I felt he wasn't responding to therapy at all and so I recommended drastic action - namely ECT or shock treatment".

"I was all strapped down on the table and they were about to put the rubber bit in my mouth when the psychiatric nurse picked up on my accent," said Mr Farthing. "I remember her saying 'Oh my God, I think we're making a terrible mistake'." Nurse Alice Sheen was a big fan of British comedy, giving her an understanding of the British psyche.

"Classic comedy characters like Tony Hancock, Albert Steptoe and Frank Spencer are all hopeless cases with no chance of ever doing well or escaping their circumstances," she explained to the baffled US medics. "That's funny in Britain and is not seen as pathological at all."

Identifying Mr Farthing as British changed his diagnosis from 'clinical depression' to 'rather quaint and charming' and he was immediately discharged from hospital, with a selection of brightly coloured leaflets and an "I love New York" T-shirt.

24 hours to do something meaningful about it | OpenMedia

We have just 24 hours until key decision-makers behind the Trans Pacific Partnership’s (TPP) Internet Censorship plan begin meeting in Ottawa, Canada.1

Please Note: This is your last chance to use our easy-to-use “Internet Voice” to get your comment right in the hands of those crafting this extreme and secretive plan.

Your diligence over time has allowed your OpenMedia team to get a face-to-face meeting with them.

It’s crucial that we have as many original comments as possible to show TPP insiders when we meet them.

Nj, will you take this last opportunity to join Internet users across the globe and have your comments put in the hands of TPP decision-makers?

I strongly object to any State or Government or commercially sanctioned moves to act in any way that could end or limit free expression online as we currently know and enjoy it. This would be a threat to the free world, to democratic freedom and to the American Constitution.
This thing seems to be being driven home with a pile-driver and backed by the US government, so it's probably bound to be pushed through in the shorter term, but at least a protest can be made beforehand.
Democratic freedom at its finest.

Scott Adams Blog: The Religion War Predictions 07/02/2014
...In the book I imagined that the government would combat terrorism by strictly limiting digital communications. If someone is not on your approved list you can't call, text, or email with them. If you want to add someone to your list, there's a bureaucratic process to do that. That part of the prediction is unlikely to happen because the NSA can monitor every form of communication, and that's a more effective solution. I didn't see that coming. But I'll take partial credit for predicting that the government wouldn't allow unfettered private conversations over networks in the future.

UPDATE: 2014-07-03 - made notes in the review regarding:
  • I today came across McAfee Stinger Portable | PortableApps.com (a potential $FREE MBAM alternative which I have not trialled).
  • I today noticed that the Vista Ultimate installation of MBAM updated itself:
     * from version series 1.x (PRO),
     * to the newer version series 2.x (Premium),
     - so I would guess that the version series 1.x might now be obsolete.

I hadn't seen that video before now. Pretty impressive.
I already knew about the functionality that could be (or was being) designed into LEDs, and I have been keenly awaiting the day when, for example, my lightbulbs will be able to transmit/receive my wifi router signals. I was keen on the idea ever since seeing it demonstrated on (I think it was) a TED talk.
Certainly, the future looks very bright for smart LEDs...

Relevant to lighting generally. Might be useful. Very informative notes here from Michael Herf - the guy who I gather is the author of f.lux (which I have used for a while now) and the original author of Picasa: - notes on Full Spectrum lighting.

I think it's a hoot. Not just "Streisand Effect", but also "MPAA suffering from foot-in-mouth disease", or "MPAA scores own goal" - that sort of thing.
Mind you, it could be deliberate, I suppose. I mean, maybe they really did want to direct people to that subreddit for some mysterious but profit-motivated purpose. We'll probably never know.

Of interest as it's about censorship of Cryptome (an important leak/info site). The reason for them being taken offline is a bit ridiculous.
Surely not censorship? Just a set of unlucky coincidences, I would think.

I did understand the point. The definition of anarchy that you are using apparently includes the principle of non-agression.
Yes. It was this part that made me think that you'd misinterpreted me:
You'd probably need to architect the thing with everyone's agreement though, otherwise a lot of innocent people will probably have to die in the revolutionary process.
Sorry, I did make a fuller response but it got zapped in this cruddy editing window and I don't have the inclination to tediously rewrite it.
Suffice it to say that the point I was trying too make was that history would seem to indicate that a religo-political ideology "A" which includes the principle of non-aggression and which is thus not strongly reinforced by authorised/mandated violence and aggression, and which at the same time presumes to conflict with an established and more strongly reinforced (i.e., with authorised/mandated violence and aggression) religo-political ideology "B", is unlikely to get very far.
There will likely be violence/aggression/bloodshed, probably caused mainly by members of "B", against "A".

"Occupy Wall Street" etc. and university students' passive demonstrations (remember the pepper-spraying cop?), would probably be examples of that. Sort of manifestations of tribalism.
The status quo can tend to be fiercely protected by the establishment at times of challenge.

@Renegade: Oh, sorry. I see what you meant, now. I wonder whether just swapping one religio-political ideology and system - one of government - for another - one of general anarchy - would be likely to generate much the same result as the above revolutions?
It would be interesting to find out. You'd probably need to architect the thing with everyone's agreement though, otherwise a lot of innocent people will probably have to die in the revolutionary process.
A new kind of "new world order"?
Hmm...

I think you're missing the point I've tried to make in a few places - that the initiation of aggression is never acceptable. If we actually held that principle, we would have anarchy, which is apolitical.

Thanks - I just now got around to watching this.
I just thought I'd mention that I have a classic bloke's perspective on the fitting of tight (too-small sized) jeans. My somewhat vain and fashion-conscious room-mate at boarding school had bought a pair of Levi denims as they were regarded as being very fashionable and "cool". He soaked them overnight in cold water to get them shrunk, so they would be nice and tight.
What did you think of my Youtube video?
Hahaha. It was fine, thanks.  ;-)

Not sure about the guys, but I am sure the women here can relate, although I have not done anything like this since the 80's, when most jeans did not contain any Lycra. The only thing missing from this video is the coat hanger, to pull up the zipper.  Grin

My somewhat vain and fashion-conscious room-mate at boarding school had bought a pair of Levi denims as they were regarded as being very fashionable and "cool". He soaked them overnight in cold water to get them shrunk, so they would be nice and tight.
When they had dried, he proceeded to put them on in our room. I was reclined on my bed reading a book and I noticed that he was in some difficulty as he attempted to get the jeans on. He was very determined. I found it spectacularly funny and rolled about laughing on the bed, tears streaming from my eyes. I found it amazing what a vain and fashion-conscious teenager would put himself through, all in the name of fashion. I had never witnessed anything like it before.
He became quite indignant at my laughing at him "It's not bloody funny! It's hard work." he said angrily, making me laugh all the more at his determination. After the tricky fastening of the copper belt button - suck that tummy in! - the last step was the trickiest - doing up the fly - and it made his eyes water, and me laugh some more. And then, after he had got them on, I was watching him walk jerkily and stiff-legged around the room in the excessively tight jeans, and I realised that they must have been hurting him in several sensitive areas - and I burst into laughter again.
He never wore them after that. They were impossibly tight. He sold them to someone of a slighter build.
Coincidentally, I was relating this tale to my daughter only the other day, as she had been trying on some jeans that were too tight (she had grown out of them), and they were put in the charity clothes pile.
