I look forward to the final release. I try very few Beta releases but am intrigued to say the least. Mbam has proven itself to me many times over.

Looks fine.

Can't imagine it hurting anything but what do I know?

edit: Yep, I'm using it.

It will be interesting to see how it works. Kaspersky has the free TDSSKiller program that also handles root-kits but its good to have another tool in your arsenal.

The funny thing is that avast! occasionally finds a rootkit in a Malwarebytes Anti-malware file. I delete it and then avast! instructs me to run a boot time scan. I do that, it takes a long time and it never finds anything.

So, if this is going to be a paid program, it might not be worth it because I have 5 computers. It could be a FP.

Exactly what I was going to say I have the TDSSKiller Anti-Rootkit program, and I find it to be great tool to use.

Went ahead and tried it. No problems but I really didn't expect any to tell you the truth. Malwarebytes has proven itself to me many times over.
