Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

FYI:

Some (but not all) users are having trouble downloading the 2.2.0.1024 installer with Firefox 41.0.1 from the special link HERE embedded in this announcement post HERE.
Disabling ABP and NoScript seem to have no effect.
It has been reported both at MBAM forum and at Wilders.

If you have trouble downloading the MBAM 2.2.0.1024 installer file, either of these two links should work:
http://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam/
https://downloads.malwarebytes.org/file/mbam_current/

Thanks,

I was browsing the MBAM forum and found an interesting thread/post.
Just posting this as an fyi for MBAM users that might be interested.

You are correct that the current architecture of MBAM makes it difficult for us to rapidly deploy program updates. I wish we could be faster getting new versions out the door. We are working on a complete redesign of MBAM to remedy this, but we're still a ways off yet in finishing that.

That has been the most irritating items about all of the 2.0.... versions for me that the 1.75... did flawlessly is update on a daily schedule
I didn't read the link David so not commenting on newer version/ beta.... updating just basic definitions updates.
As far as I've noticed it's getting better but does get stuck after a week or 2 and I have to remove/redo the schedule again :/

I do all my updates/upgrades of Malwarebytes manually and have had no such problem.
I believe that upgrades are done regionally. Which means that my upgrade to 2.20.1024 will be offered at a different time than people in different regions.

A year of so I did have a problem but all I had to do is remove Malwarebytes and install again.
One advantage in my opinion of doing manual updates is you can control what else your computer is doing so it doesn't interfere with updates. I update Malwarebytes 3 or more times a day.
I haven't had any update or upgrade problem with Malwarebytes in a very long time.

I don't know whether to be glad of or fear a complete redo of MBAM. Version 2.x has been fraught with problems from the word go. I still have to occasionally reinstall the blasted thing because of some problem that crops up, such as refusing to update definitions. I also no longer let it do automatic program updates because so many of the updates have been problematic at first.

I'm still using the free version of 1.75. Every time I think about upgrading I come across people discussing problems and future changes such that it seems like Version 2 is still in beta in all but name.

I stopped using MBAM after a program update. It would not update definitions. Tried the removal tool and a clean install but still had the same problem. Restored a system image backup to get the previous version back and it worked -until I let it update the program and then I had exactly the same problem. Now I am using an alternative product.

I wouldn't want to change, I've always been very happy with 1.75, especially as I use the free version for manual checks a couple of times a week. I'm also very happy with the forum cover provided by MBAM. I'm put off the paid-for version because as I understand it you have no effective control over the quarantine function, even if you elect to confirm quarantine you only have a matter of a few seconds in which to reject it - and as scanning takes a while during which my attention may be elsewhere a few seconds simply aren't enough to jump in and stop an obvious false positive - and that can all too easily lead to the system being screwed up as has happened with the odd rogue definition update in the past. I can understand the importance of automatic quarantine for some users with multiple computers, but as I have just a couple of separate home computers I want to remain in control at all times.

Malwarebytes Database Version
I just ran the updater in Malwarebytes, and was surprised at the change in version numbers, as can be seen in the screenshot. I suppose they may just have decided to use a different system, but I'm wondering if it might indicate something more nefarious, like someone else slipping into the picture?
