The new 2.0 UI is nice, it's not "W8 style", I like it.

V 2.0 dislikes for me
- More popup messages
- The MBAM window opens when I wake the PC, or an Auto scan runs
- Less information in the logs
- Can't run a Silent auto scan
- Can't control which popups to enable, it's all or nothing

-- i.e. For a Scheduled scan, V 2.0 does this:
popup for Scan started
MBAM window opens
popup for Scan ended

I'd like the program run silently and notify:
- if malware or any issues are found
- optionally choose what other alerts I want, such as a DB update

I can learn to live with the 2.0 changes ...
Some people I help will get confused with all the popups and windows opening ...

I'm a senior citizen and most people I help are 70+ years old, often on a limited income, and only have 1 PC.
For these people, the cost will be $25 per year / per PC with the subscription license.

V 2.0 always has MBAM.exe running (and more RAM is used)

New Beta version released yesterday and uses same download link. New version is 2.00.0.0503 and if you have 2.00.0.0502 installed it will update so no need to download.

FWIW: I saw in the newspaper (yes I still read them) that a company network was phished and the only AV they had on their computers was the free malwarebytes. Makes me mad that for profit companies depend on free products to protect their networks and something tells me that they deserve what it costs them. But their clients were the big losers as their info was compromised.
damn shame.

Rich, the mistake that company made is that Malwarebytes never said they were an AV, it looks for other types of Malware and great if used in conjunction with an AV.

AVs and other anti-malware programs rarely can protect from phishing attacks. Phishing attacks depend on a stupid human clicking on a bad link. Programs like WOT (Web of Trust; some AVs have a similar feature) can warn of known phishing sites but can't protect against the new ones that keep popping up.

I agree businesses should pay for their products, though. What that business was doing was a violation of MBAM's Terms of Service.

The lifetime licenses are still available. I just purchased 2 for $20.95 each. They will still work with the 2.0 official release. Now is a good time to buy them


ETA - Purchased right from the MBAM site
