Windows 7: Malwarebytes Question

Malwarebytes Question

I have the pay version of MB and I have it set to notify me every two days if the definitions are out of date. It does that but shouldn't it do the updates on its own? Also I don't see a place where it tells you the last time it scanned so I don't know if it did or not. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks,

Check under automated scheduling in Malwarebytes. It should be set to update automatically on a schedule. Mine has always updated on its own.

Under the scan tab, it shows the last scan.

What version do you have installed?

PBCopter -- I still don't see a setting for that. Could you do a screen shot of what is to be checked for the automatic updates? Thanks,

Right now, I see "last scan: 17 hours ago" at the bottom of the scan tab.

And: last updated: 10 hours ago

I'd prefer that info were on the dashboard page as that is the tab you first see when opening the app.

I have product and it automatically updates. Open product, Select Settings Tab, make sure update is checked. Then go to Scheduler Tab and make sure there is an update task scheduled. If not U can add one.

I have MB Pro.
You may want to check to see if the update scheduler is set.

Pro has been superseded by "Premium"; unfortunately, the interface on your version is better than the interface on the new version.

I read on the MBAM forum some people are having problems with auto updates in version 2.0.
Some say changing the update to realtime works.

I see.
The same thing happened with Avast Free and Comodo Free.....they came out with clunkier versions of their interfaces.
