Windows 7: MalwareByte's opens across dual monitors...

MalwareByte's opens across dual monitors...

Hi,

I downloaded the latest MBAM and installed it. It opens up across both monitors and can't be resized. Only Max and Min. I installed MBAM on a Windows 7 x64 bootable VM for testing. See screenshot.

MBAM resize window

Using a single monitor the only options are max/ min. I tried the resize enable hack but wasn't able to resize the window.

What the heck is wrong with the software designers for MBAM? Restore Down works just fine in the old version plus one can drag the borders to resize the window. Why would they remove that feature in the new version?

Seriously, I have four lifetime Pro licenses and, if they don't get their heads before the older version reaches EOL, I'm going to demand (and legally pursue, if necessary) a refund for those soon to be useless licenses. I'm tired of waiting for them to fix things but, instead, I keep reading about new problems cropping up, then they want to release another new version when they can't even fix the current one.

I had this issue when version 2 first came out, so I went back to version 1.75. I thought they would have fixed it by now... that is why I tried in a VM.

When you put the mouse to the edge, it does not change into a side-to-side cursor? As in the pic below?

What happens if you change the theme.. maybe turn Aero off?

MBAM Old Version

Your screenshot shows an old version! Doesn't look like the new one to me. I use Classic Theme. Windows cannot be resized.

Yes, I have v 1.6 - I was using that to illustrate.

You use the classic theme? Really? In your shot, MB seems to use the Aero Glass (Transparent) Theme... that's available with the classic theme?

I didn't post a screenshot in this thread - or maybe I'm missing something. Here's what it looks like on my machine:

I was originally talking to the op. You then came in and told me I was using an old version, and started talking about the issue YOU were having; I mistakenly thought I was still talking to the op.
