Windows 7: MBAM 3 Totally Useless Now

Update

I was forced to upgrade to MBAM v3.1.2.1733 a couple of days ago.

Surprisingly this version seems to work correctly on my PC.
It takes ~5 seconds to start, as opposed to the 30-60 seconds that MBAM 3.0.x.xxxx took.
The scans also seem to be working correctly.

The only "issue" is the pointless 24/7 service that it requires (compared to MBAM v2.x.x.xxxx).

Are you comparing Mbam 2 free with the 14 Day default of the full version of Mbam 3? as that would "need" 24/7 service for 24/7 auto protection ?

I also don't know what (24/7) has to do with the new version.

I use the 3.1 version and have no problems. My system never run 24/7.

Please explain.

Mbam 3 free initially came as a short 14 day package of the full service with only a hidden opt out - it would revert to the limited free version if you didn't fall for the suggestions that you upgrade to the full paid version - not sure about later ones as I had enough of the problems so switched to something more reliable

Well, I'm having a problem with MBAM 3. After occasional reboots (it doesn't happen every time I reboot), the malware protection will be turned off and the only way to get it to turn back on is to shut down MBAM and restart it. I run my computer 24/7 since I things going on at night when I'm (supposed to be ) sleeping, such as MBAM scans and recording OTA TV. I have my computer set to automatically reboot three times a week during the wee hours so, when MBAM decides to disable malware protection, it could be a few hours (when I wake up) to a few days (if I'm out of town) before I detect the problem so this is unacceptable! Anyone have any idea how I can fix this? I have the latest version.

Maybe an on start-up scheduled task to close and restart mbam 3 at each reboot, maybe delayed a set time. Ok it won't be needed every time the system is booted bit its a lot better than not having protection running. It's also easier that checking mbam status everytime

Thanks! I thought about that but I would prefer a cure to the problem, not just the symptom. Still, it's a good Plan B to look into.

I have had so many plan B successes in the past - I'm sure I should Buzz

LOL! I've had many projects that had so many problems, I almost ran out of letters with which to name the backup plans. At least I haven't had to fall back on Plan 9...




...yet.

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.
