Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

Update:

Kindly refer to this post by the MBAM Product Manager >>HERE<<

MBAM 2.1.6.1022 is now available in general release both via the program's auto-updater and from the regular product download page.
This is the same build that was released to a small number of users last week.
If you are already running 2.1.6.1022, you do not need to update.

>>As always, release will be throttled -- not all users or all computers will get the update at the same time, to balance server load.

3 ways to upgrade:


1. You may wait for it to be offered to your system(s) via the auto-updater sometime over the next few days.
(Be sure you have the Update settings configured to check for both PROGRAM updates and database updates.)

2. Or you may download it from the product download page >>HERE<< to install over the top.

3. Or you may perform a clean upgrade, by following these steps: MBAM Clean Removal Process 2x

Thank you,

Hi, ThrashZone:

Alas, without an error code or error message, that's not enough data to provide any detailed advice.
There are many reasons for updating failures (same as with Windows or security apps or other software) -- corrupted MBAM install/upgrade, corrupted database, messed up MBAM settings, lots of accumulated log files, lots of items in quarantine, malware, software conflicts, system configurations, networking/internet access issues, untreated PUPs, etc. etc. etc.

You may wish to try a clean reinstall, as that process resolves many minor issues.
It is often the fastest way to get back up and running.
The "best practices" for this are explained here: MBAM Clean Removal Process 2x

If that doesn't resolve the issue, we'd be more than happy to assist you over at the MBAM support forum.
If you wish help with this, we would suggest that you please start a new post >>here<<.
To expedite the process, it would greatly help us to better help you if you could please read this tutorial and attach the 3 diagnostic logs to the new post: Diagnostic Logs

Thank you,

MM, i hope Mbam recognizes your continued outstanding work with this stuff , your truly a God send. Yes, i know you are not affiliated with them which makes it even more impressive.

I heard a rumor that "Brink" only offers his helpers a poultry 250 K to start and i think thats just awful , i mean how can someone with a small family survive on such bus fare .


I bet Mbam would double that and i think your worth it , if i was you i would approach Mbam management and damand to be paid 650 K a year , i honestly think thats fair for a 20 hour work week , if you work a 40 hour work week well just double that amount as a starting figure .

Just my opinion of course.









Yes, i'm joking , kind of.

Got 2.1.6.1022 going without issues. I did a manual download and installed over the top of earlier version.

Threat scanned 344,000 items in 3'54".

Looks good. I like the 8 stage progress bar you see on screen during a threat scan. I think that's new.

All settings were retained.

Is Version 2 at a stage now reliability-wise where it can definitely be recommended, or is it in practice if not in name still really to be regarded as in beta?

If a quick scan with Version 1.75 takes 15 minutes, how long will the equivalent scan take in Version 2?

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?
