If you don't have a System Backup Image, I'd use the mbam-clean utility to remove Ver 2 and then re-install Ver 1.

I'm using Ver 2 and don't have all the issues I'm reading about.
For me, it works better.
I normally use a Standard/Limited account and with Ver 1 I was limited in what I could do and when it alerted me.
With Ver 2, it tells me when the DB is out of date, and I can Update it...

With the friends and family I help, I suggest they wait a few weeks before updating to Ver 2 ...
There are issues reported with Ver 2 and I don't want to have someone update to Ver 2, and I have to fix it remotely via Teamviewer.
I was the one that suggested (and installed) MBAM for them.
Thanks. I don't have a System Backup Image, so if I do decide to get rid of V2, I'll use the MBAM-Clean utility.

Anyone know how long v1.75 will be supported with database updates? I am strongly considering a roll back.

The threat scan took twice as long as usual (although it may have been scanning more folders and files than before, I'm not sure), and it takes a while for the tray icon to disappear after I close the window (and I can't reopen it until after the icon disappears).

Part of me is tempted to go back to the previous version, but I don't know if it's because I have legitimate problems with this version or I'm just nervous about the changes. I'll try to stick with it until the end of the week. If I don't warm up to it by Monday, I might roll back.

I updated a Test system from my Admin account using the "Program Updater".
It took about 3 reboots with my Standard account before Active Protection would work when starting Windows.

In about 2-3 weeks we're going to release yet another patch that will fix about ~30 bugs that have been reported or we've discovered. We wanted to make sure the UI issues were addressed first since we had some really great feedback from everyone.
Quote:
To get the update, please download it from our website, or if you're already running 2.0, just check for updates. Starting Monday, we will start slowly migrating 1.75 users to 2.0; this is currently disabled. If you do not wish to participate, please make sure you've disabled the program updates on the Update Settings tab in 1.75.

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?
