Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

Thanks for the discussion on this everyone, as always here it's been most informative. Having read this board and some of the feedback on the MBAM board, I intend to stick with 1.75 for now, there just doesn't seem to be enough benefit to the new version to warrant the problems some are experiencing with it, especially as I am very happy with 1.75.

Thanks for that. I'm surprised it's off by default.
It's off by default in 2.0 so that most users can do most PROGRAM updates "hot", without having to reboot.


Cheers,

Maybe I'm not understanding you.
It appears without a reboot after installing version 1.75.
The same is true after installing AutoIt...
...only sometimes I have to refresh the desktop.

Even on a fresh install of mbam version 2, it appears without a reboot (if one selects the option).

In 1.75, it was enabled by default during installation and the setting would naturally be retained upon system reboot.
However, having it enabled often necessitated a system reboot after a PROGRAM version update.

The reason they disabled it by default in 2.00 was so that basic users could take in-place program updates without having to reboot.

Having said that, there is a KNOWN bug with context menu scanning
in 2.0 that is on the list for fixing.
It wasn't included with yesterday's 2.0.1 (that was mostly a cosmetic tweak).
I don't know if it will be in the next version due in a few weeks.

You might want to try a clean reinstall to see if that resolves the issue for you.
The procedure is here: MBAM Clean Removal Process.
Be sure to reboot when prompted.
NOTE: If you have 2.0 Self-Protection enabled, please disable it before running mbam-clean.

EDIT: If you're still having issues, feel free to pop over HERE and someone will assist you with it.

Hope this helps,

MM

Thanks, I just found it in the MBAM forums and came back to answer my own question but you beat me to it.

Considering this I grabbed a lifetime license.

I have the context menu entries, and I didn't have to reboot after the last program update?

Seems I misspoke on what I've read on the 2.0 mabm update window,
It does say we will continue to receive updates even if we don't upgrade to 2.0,
Seems lifetime has a limitation after all
But no fear I'm sure mabm will work out all the bugs and we can all move to 2.0 sooner than later/ 30 days..
Apologies for the term "Forever"
Cheers.

The old license is Lifetime not the product version.

No apology needed. I've used MBAM Free for a long time and when I discovered that there was no Quick Scan (AKA Hyper Scan) in the free v2x I considered going back.

I am pleased that I still got a life time license and can support the creators of MBAM as best I could. A fixed income leaves a lot to be desired once you enter retirement.

Thank you for taking the time to provide more details. I now understand what you are saying.

I don't have a problem with mbam because I'm still using 1.75.

I installed mbam version 2 inside a Virtual Machine just to test the things being mentioned in this thread. If I can drum up enough energy, I'll tell the developers about this flaw.
