Malwarebytes version 1.61

Malwarebytes released version 1.61 today.
I tried to update using the auto update on a W7 x64 PC and it failed.
I ran the mbam-clean uninstall utility and downloaded/installed version 1.61 without issues.
Had to re-register and reconfigure the options.
I'll wait a few days to see if others report auto update issues to MBAM before updating other PC's.

Here is a link with release notes and download link.

Received auto-update notice on 04/09. Didn't work on my 7 Pro x64 machine. Had to manually uninstall MBAM then reinstall. But auto-update worked fine on an XP w/SP3 machine. Go figure.

Yes.
As far as i know it must at least be run with "Run as Admin" for program updates or manual DB updates.

All of mine are the MBAM Pro paid personal (home user) version...

I don't think the free version can do Auto Updates...

I have updated malwarebytes 2.2 to 3.5 on all my clients machines including mine who have the paid one. I am finding on all of them, malwarebytes is still popping up saying its real time protection is off. I go into the program and click it on which takes a bit to get it to set. After each...

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?
