Malwarebytes 3.0 out

<< < (5/10) > >>

Arizona Hot:
I have installed the version with no problems yet. I will shake that down for a few days before installing it in the 64-bit Windows system.

I keep checking back on the MBAM site (and here) to see where things stand.  Although version seems to have cured some of the problems, people are still reporting too many as yet unresolved problems, and not just a single individual but multiple people reporting the same problem.  Today, someone posted a message saying "There are rumors of a component update coming on Feb 22 and a new release on Feb 26."  Perhaps that will finally do the trick.  I realize that there will always be someone whose idiosyncratic system can't accommodate a given piece of software, but I haven't yet felt ready to move from MBAM 2 (which I like a lot) to MBAM 3.

Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner works well for me.

Vienal, welcome to the forum.  I've used and highly recommended Malwarebytes for years.  And I'm still very happy with version 2.  In theory, version 3 sounds like it has a lot going for it, but the feedback on the Malwarebytes forum and elsewhere has made me wary of upgrading.  Although some folks here and on the MBAM forum have said that the newest update seems to have cured the problems they'd been experiencing, others are apparently still having problems.  I tend to be conservative in these matters.  I'm usually in no hurry to install new software until I feel confident that I have more to gain than to lose.   But I'm still very very happy with Malwarebytes version 2.  I know of no similar program I like as well.

It took many restarts but I now have Malwarebytes . Anyone else have it yet? The first version is the original update. Afterwards, I was informed of another update and many restarts later Malwarebytes could be seen and I could get the second screenshot.
