Exactly. You can usually spot fake warnings by the language used. Not that I'm denying the usefulness of anti-malware programs, but the wording adopted by malware usually gives a good pointer as well.

Out of the known issues reported the only one I've noticed is of course successful update notifications non existence,
But that would make sense because mbam only self updates if set to Real time,
Hourly does not self update/ daily does not update,
Such a simple task to self update on starting with windows is lost some where in the 2.0.... version and a following confirmation popup stating as much ?
Otherwise no issues,
Cheers.

I use Hourly updates, every 2-4 hours, and no problems here.

Have you tried a fresh Mbam install after following the clean removal instructions?

I have mine set to Repeats on constant intervals. Since it is a real time active protection, I want the most up to date definitions. I can check manually anytime, and it says no updates available, so I assume it is working

If you go to History and look at the Protection Log it will show when an update was done. it will only make an entry when an updated was found and installed.

MBAM BSOD resolved

Attachment 318206

It still makes use of the swissarmy.sys driver that is also present in the beta releases and seems to cause BSOD's on my machine. If I stick with MBAM 1.75 it doesn't use that driver and works just fine.

So I just installed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free v2.0.2.1012 after giving up on resolving the BSOD issues that I was experiencing with every release since 1.75 and finally it actually works!

I'm guessing a little here but I reckon that the problem might have been related to a permissions and replicating appdata folder issue that I fixed some weeks ago but existed at the time of the above post.

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?
