I always found it strange that a lot of people had weird problems with Firefox.


Other than the stupidly long start up time, MBAM 3 was working.

I think that the last update broke it on my machines.

When I checked my other PC, it couldn't even draw the interface correctly (the progress animation wasn't rendered at all). Scans were broken too.

Never had a single issue with MBAM 3 on either Win 7 SP1 Home Premium or Win 10 Home. I run this simultaneously with MSSE with no issues.

Some people don't seem to have any problems with it.

However, I've seen plenty of complaints about MBAM 3 and they usually match my experience:
  • Useless 24/7 Service
  • Ridiculous 30 second to 60 second startup time
MBAM 2 doesn't display either of those issues.


If the company purges those responsible for MBAM 3, I might consider installing MBAM 4 (assuming the MBAM 3 debacle doesn't wipe them out).

To me a few seconds on boot does not over ride the security advantage of Malwarebytes 3.0.

I have '3.0' on two machines and have notice a few seconds more when booting.
No big deal as far as I'm concerned.

A minute is not a few seconds.

I used MBAM 3 from January to the end of April (despite the stupidly long startup time).

Updating itself to a non-functional state was the final straw.

Have you tried 3.1? I have had no issues with it at all.

I heard about it just after I finished replacing v3 with v2.

I did a brief search and I found people were still complaining about the same issues, so I didn't bother.

In my opinion, MBAM shouldn't have fixed something that wasn't broken in the first place.

If MBAM now promotes itself as an AV replacement, they should subject themselves to an independent and impartial testing (AV Comparatives) of their product like the rest of the security software that's on the market.

All 3 versions were uninstalled

I tried a trial version on all three of my win 7 systems (2 ultimate 1 pro) with all updates and patches. All three machines corrupted their respective system restores, timed to MWAM installation. It was over a week of not knowing, and when found on one laptop I traced it to MBAM. I then tried a restore on the other 2, same issue. Tech support (two weeks worth) could not duplicate, so I uninstalled from all 3 and never looked back. All 3 running MSE without problems again. Very disappointed MBAM did this corruption of sys restore. Don't know where the source of the problem was, but if installing MBAM brought it to the surface, then MBAM had to go.

MBAM Pro?
Hi, Have a few questions: 1. After installing MBAM Pro, does one still get a alert message from action center? 2. Should Anti exploit be purchased too, is it a effective combo with MBAM Pro? Thanks.
