Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

Hmmmm.....if you start a scan and then minimize it to the system tray, when the scan finishes, you do not get any pop-up notification of the results.

You have to go back to the system tray and maximize the app, which then says no threats found.

I don't know, but it's possible that if threats were found, you would get a pop-up.

Isn't that different than the earlier version?

Yes very different,
Even a clean scan would produce a scan report popup after it finished and then you close/ exit the program,
I'm guessing this is where emphasis was put in working in the background ?

I'm back on 1.75... version,
2.0 froze after 2 hours I killed it in task manager,
Used system restore no joy had to use a extended download link to get the previous version back,
Not a great experience with 2.0 but lets here it for Extended download purchase

The minimize and the close buttons in the upper right corner of the window do the same thing in V 2.0.
The question/issue for this change was discussed in the beta forum:
https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...42380&p=792160

What is an "extended download link" ?

Extended download is a additional option at purchase costs a bit more but well worth it in this recent case,
Made a support ticket I'll see what they say about the sticking or freezing thing ?
Cheers.

I'm wondering now if I can burn it to flash drive or disk ?

If you are running a scan and minimize it then double click the icon it will reopen right where you left off as the scan continues in the background. In earlier Beta versions there would be "green notifications" popups when the scan completed with nothing found but testers complained so all the "green notifications" were turned off until a future update to give the user control on all notification. If the scan finds something you should get a "red notification" . More refinements are being worked on for future updates.

Is it the mbam-setup-1.75.0.1300.exe file you're wondering about ?
I just download mbam setup exe's and save them on a HD.
Then run it to do the installation.

There have been reports with scans freezing when running a Custom full scan with rootkits enabled. Runs fine with rootkits disabled. Hyper and Threat scans work fine with rootkits enabled.

No not the current version the download link mamb provided 15+- months ago part of the extended download not free,
The version I forget what it was but immediately prompts for updating if running it,
The actual download link doesn't expire until 11/2/14 so it's good for two years after purchase,
Cheers.

1.75.0.1300 is the latest V1 version (before the new MBAM 2.0).
2.0.0.1000 is the new V2 version.

You can download Older versions from FileHippo if you ever need them.

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?
