Follow all the prompts until done.
No restart was needed.

Thanks David.
You're welcome, and Thanks for that tip about not needing to re-boot after updating MBAM free.
It's good to know before i help someone remotely that is using the free version !
All my OS's have Pro...maybe i should downgrade one to free so i would know this
Right click then select Run as Admin. (Edit)
Clicked update.
Mbam window stayed open and updated the software.
It then updated the malware base and I then ran a scan.

It evidently is just a program update not a totally new version for the "Free".
There are extra tools with the paid version and that may be the difference. Maybe???

Yea, i think PRO works different.

I just tried again on another system, and can't update when logged in with a Standard account and Right Clicking "Check for Updates" on the System Tray icon. (Access is denied)

If I "Start Scanner" from the tray icon, the "Check for updates" option is disabled...(Standard User)

This system has MBAM Pro ver 1.61

I don't have a problem with this, as i know how to get the updates - Run MBAM with "Run as administrator".

Just weird...and interesting that you can update the Free version with a Standard Account.

I just updated my MAM Pro and the only thing I noticed was when the update was done the definitions were out of date by 9 days. I just updated them before install 1.62. It didn't seam to cause a problem. I accepted to install the updates. Going through the settings in MAM I had to set it back to Active again.

I have to re-boot after the upgrade...
Maybe it's because I logged in with a Standard account, started MBAM with "Run as administrator" and updated the version that way...

You could ask on the MBAM forum about this, if you're interested...

Or, ask on the KIS forum?
No mate I just found this out via a fellow who works on the configs for KIS and just go with that. Plus I have tried the full and without that setting I mentioned and there were "things" going on then.

Hey but I just run it as I do and mate have never had any problems so while it's like that I leave well enough alone - if it's not broken.......

MBAM in my mind is just one heck of a nice app to be honest and look I wasn't trying to be smart or have a go at you or anyone else I just wasn't aware that you were running it as you are

As a matter of fact the machines I fix I always run MBAM through them and it always picks up a ton of malware as most of my friends and work colleagues are not particularly careful with what they do on line. I find those who muck around in iTunes and Apple stuff are the worst and of course those who just let their security lapse - thats why I always set them up with a free suite namely Comodo Premium - and MBAM because they are careless or more often than not cannot afford the paid for security.
I am an RN and can afford paid for but most of my colleagues are poorly paid Enrolled Nurses or the domestic staff, hence a good part of the problem.

Sorry if I caused you any offence it was certainly never intended

No offence taken here
I apologize if i said something to make you think that, it was not my intent.

I just wanted to point out MBAM has exclusion instructions in case you were not aware of it and want to use MBAM Pro.
I'm really very surprised they do not have instructions for Kaspersky exclusions in their FAQ...

I just did a search and found an MBAM forum thread with exclusion instructions for Kaspersky + MBAM.

Hum David that forum reply was informative I would never have thought of setting KIS with an exclusion.

Mind you the fellow who said it was slowing his machine down I think he has probably got a heap of other stuff on in startup as my machines (4) are all sub 50sec boots in fact the one I just rebuilt for my brother is sub 40 secs and it has a dual core AMD Athlon and beats my Sandy Bridge i5 2500!

Oh they are all running SSD's of course so all being equal in that respect.

I don't understand some folks who complain about slowing the boot - unless it is into the minutes as most ISS's in my limited experience by the very nature of the beast has to load quite a bit of info and update eh? The alternative is far worse in any case.
