However, it's not fair for me to be too critical when using free software!
True when it is free you cannot criticize too much. But I paid for it.

Free software ?
Is that like "near beer" I don't believe Andrew is using the free version of mbam :/

Could be the anti exploit combo ?
I never saw the need for it,
I scanned for rootkits once with a full scan and that should be enough for a while,
Otherwise what's the point in using the pro/ premium version if your scanning all of the time or once a day... ssd thrashing

I have found when doing a Hyper Scan it is picking up PUP's and that is good.
To me that means one can do a Hyper Scan after downloading something and see if any little buddies came along for the ride. It doesn't take long to do a Hyper Scan.

Reading an SSD doesn't thrash it; it's writing to it that will eventually wear it out. Methinks scans just read disks, not write to them.

I just installed MBAE because you are not having problems. It's the free version.
I hope it also works well for me.

So now I have MBAM, MSE and MBAE all running at the same time.

Well it took it a few days to surface but the darned update bug is back for me :/
I don't get it this is a really basic function to do a update once a day
Only way it updates is via setting it to realtime check every 5 freaking minutes or the old fashioned manually
1.75... still on my laptop has no issues at all at updating once a day :/

On another note why is threat scanning once a day a default if over scanning is a bad thing,
Seems like a contradiction Mr. Thread locker

How do you get mbam to show in the area when you right click so you can scan a download?

Thank you

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?
