The banners at the bottom are nothing but annoying. I don't know how to get rid of them.

@Layback Bear:

With version 2.1, the ad pane is vacant from all windows except a scan in progress window. That scan window can now be minimized to the Windows task bar.

If anyone would like to try v2.1 Beta1, the official download link can be found near the bottom of post #1:

Curious. The only ad I have on mine is a small box with a plug for their backup program. It doesn't flash at me, it doesn't play audio, it doesn't have annoying and distracting video, and it doesn't pop up an ad window, so, most of the time, I don't even see it on the rare occasions I actually open it up. The rest of the time, I just let MBAM do its thing, quietly updating and running a scan in the background (and the scan runs in the wee hours when I'm sawing logs).

I seem to recall there was a problem with the rootkit scan when 2.0 first came out. I've also noticed it is unchecked in the default settings. Is there still a problem with that (if there ever was one) or should I enable it?

Ticking "scan for rootkits" will add a small percentage of time to a system's overall scan times. Some users will take comfort in knowing their system is still rootkit safe when negative results are reported.

If speed is more important to you, a separate Threat Scan can be scheduled, in the Premium version, where a less frequent, and less stringent, scanning schedule has been chosen.

Try a few Threat Scans with everything enabled and see if this is what you like.

Cheers.

I've been running my scheduled scans with rootkit enabled since v2 came out.
It hasn't caused me issues.

Run a manual scan with rootkit enabled and see if you have problems.

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?
