You won't loose your License on a clean install. Your old keys are honored with the new version. Be sure you have the ID and Key written down and at the top of the Dashboard there will be an Activate button and you can enter your ID and Key. Read the proper proceed for a clean install. Some times the Key is not cleared during the clean process and your ver 2 will activate when installed.

Well, I kind of misspoke. The "spread" across the desktop from Start -> All Programs occurred in WinXP. That's what I was thinking of.

It's different in Win7, where Start -> All Programs produces a large vertical list you must vertically scroll through to get to where you want to be.

With my high-level "category" folders, these are the only thing that appears from Start -> All Programs, and there is no scrolling needed to get started selecting that category folder and then choosing from its expanded contents, etc.

Ok. "Clean" uninstall followed by re-boot, followed by reinstall, seems to have done the trick. The MBAM folder in the Start menu was now movable into my high-level "category" folder in the Start menu without a problem.

Seems it was the reboot which was needed. Logoff/logon was not sufficient.

Also, even though I uninstalled using the MBAM-provided "clean" uninstall program, my registration information was still remembered as were my few previous settings changes. So apparently it was not so "clean" an uninstall. Anyway, I didn't have to do anything to activate the Premium version... it just reinstalled exactly what I had before.

Case closed.

Yes, even though it's not supposed to be strictly necessary, a system reboot after upgrading is a good idea and seems to resolve many minor issues.

FYI, It's important to DISABLE MBAM 2.x Self-Protection (SP) from Settings > Advanced Settings before attempting to uninstall (including running the mbam-clean.exe removal tool) or before attempting to install other MBAM products, such as MBSB and MBAE beta.
It has been somewhat unpredictable on different systems for different users, but the SP module does what it's intended to do: protect MBAM files.
So, having it enabled can interfere with a clean uninstall, and with the other tasks mentioned.
That may be why your license info was retained (especially if you did not reboot after running mbam-clean).
More information is in the FAQ Section.

Cheers,
MM

I must be one of the lucky ones as I have the latest version of MBAM running smoothly with no problems.

I wasn't referring to the compatibility issues, I'm talking about the mediocre detection rates and poor showing on the removing of malware ability of it.

Can't say anything was really wrong until I used the rootkit non-sense option,

What's up with that , is there an issue with the rootkit detection component?

Malwarebytes Database Version
