Hello again everyone. I decided to run Malwarebytes today for a scan and one thing I noticed is why is it so slow? I mean the program.. it just hangs when it's doing its usual actions. When I tried updating the defs. it hung and again when it ran the program update it hung. But it didn't hang during scanning. Yes I haven't ran Mbam since easter (is that the reason? old definitions and program?) and I'm also not exactly very updated about Mbam news so can someone tell me if Mbam has any issues like that or what? And can anyone tell me if scans have really improved that much? It took 3 minutes to perform a custom scan compared to 3 hours with Mbam 1.75.

Some people are reporting issues with version 2.
I have version 2 Premium on all (5) my systems and don't have issues.
All the folks I've updated from 1.75 to V 2 also don't have issues.
Scans take a couple of minutes more than 1.75, but no big deal - meh

If you're having issues I think you should post in the MBAM forum, it seems to be "PC specific" from what I've read there.

I don't know how you updated from 1.75 to V2, but maybe you just need to run the mbam-clean utility and reinstall ???

Scan Names changed in version 2, so your custom scan is probably not the same as the scan you did in 1.75 ...

I did not update from 1.75 to ver.2 automatically (that I had to uninstall 1.75-> install v2. I did that a long time ago). I updated from ver 2 something (it was from March I believe) to current v2 something. Reason why I wonder about scans is before during ver. 1.75 it took 3 hours to complete a scan and now it's 3 minutes. Why the jump? Was there some kind of an overhaul to the scanning engine or what? Also, should I try the default "threat scan" or w/e it's called and post how long it takes? I'm just curious, that's all. I have no current issues with mbam. Other than hangs of course but I assume they'll fix it sooner or later.

If you're saying that what used to take 3 hours to scan can now be done in 3 minutes, then that is the opposite of most people's experience and suggests you're not comparing like with like. Which type of scan under ver1.75 are you comparing to which type of scan under ver.2 (and with what settings)?

I did default scans (no custom, no settings unchecked) with ver 1.75 and with custom scans in ver.2. I have everything except rootkit scan enabled with custom scans. Was it possible I also had rootkit scanning enabled during 1.75 (what were the default settings there?) while I do not in ver.2? Or was the rootkit scanning available in 1.75? It just feels weird, like I'm not used to it, or that something is wrong lol.

I'm only a free user of ver1.75, and haven't risked ver2 yet because of the many reports of problems with it. I'm happy to beta games, but not technical programs that can mess up the whole computer, I'm simply not that technical a kind of guy. However, it seems to me that you may be comparing what was a full scan under ver1.75 with the ver2 equivalent of the old quick scan, I can't remember what they changed the name to off-hand (and haven't a clue why they thought that was a sensible thing to do)!

Over to the experts...

Hey, thanks for telling me that. About the type of scans, there are like, 3 options to choose from, which is the old "full scan"? I think it's "threat scan" or whatever strange terms they use. I also feel there are way too many problems with ver. 2.
1.75 was better (for me anyway) and more stable. Also I've just now registered to malwarebytes.org forum, so hopefully there will be less comments and questions from me, lol.
