Not a great experience with 2.0 but lets here it for Extended download purchase
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.

this is correct, I ran a regular scan no problems, I ran it with rootkits enabled on a custom scan and it just kept scanning and scanning, after 1 hour I end tasked it.

I had the rootkit problem too. I am sure they will send an update soon.

btw, if you have Malwarebytes Pro now and upgrade to Premium, your lifetime license stays intact.
If you purchase it now it is only for 1 year and you have to renew after one year.
Malwarebytes is running a special now if you get it right now it is $19.99 and you can put it on 3 pcs but again it is only for one year.

You can still find some 1 PC Lifetime licenses, but I would guess not too much longer.

NewEgg has the download version of Pro with a lifetime license on sale again for $15. a person would have to be nutz not to stock up at this price. Don't let the fact it doesn't have a disk deter anyone. A disk would be out of date anyway and one would have to download the latest version.

I had a problem on one compute when doing the rootkit and no problems on the other computer doing the same thing. I don't know why but I will try it again.
The stalling problem; their is a work around that worked for me.
When the scan sits for a long time doing nothing just tick the pause button and then start the scan up again. It stalled on some picture on my computer.

Mine stalled on a pic, too. Thanks for the heads up on the pause.

I am trying the work around now.I will let you know if it works for me too.


Edit
Apparently the pause workaround does not work every time.

I run the scan on the trouble computer just a few minutes ago and it stopped on:
Windows\Web\Wall Paper Scenes\img29.jpg for 15 min.
It will probably be on your computer. It comes with Windows I think.
When you see the picture you will understand why it takes so long to scan it.
When the scan completed it found this.
Trojan: Boaxxe in file x86 asus aasp 1.01.02 pow nap.dll
I'm going to do more investagating. I scan the pictures and found no problem after removing the Trojan.

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?
