Windows 7: Latest Version of Malwarebytes

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1
 
 

I reverted to an image made just before installing v3. I've gone back to v1.75.
I have v2.2.1.1043 on another PC but didn't have the installer - thanks for the link MoxieMomma. I might install it instead until Malwarebytes pull the plug.

Wouldn't hurt to install .1043.:)

Just to recap a bit for those not yet willing/able to upgrade to version 3:

Official Malwarebytes 2.2.1.1043 download link on their own site

MBAM2 Support/KB Portal

Malwarebytes Home Product Lifecycle Policy

Malwarebytes (Anti-Malware) Support Forum
(It is labeled for version 3.0; there is no specific sub-forum for MBAM2 at this time)

This is not meant to offend or to nitpick, only to clarify.

With MBAM (or any Malwarebytes product), the build number alone really is not enough to notate a product.
It's not quite the same as with Windows.

As of now, it's clear that "1043" refers to the last, current, stable build of MBAM 2.2.1.x.
Using only the last 4 digits of the build, however, might lead to confusion down the line.

For example:

The current version of MBAM is 2.2.1.1043

The current version of "MB3" is 3.0.4.1269

If they issue a patch, it might be 3.0.5.1043 or even 3.1.0.1043 (or something like that)


To reduce confusion for those unfamiliar with MBAM/MB3, I suggest referring to MBAM as "2.2.1.1043" or "MBAM2" or "MBAM 2.x", or something a bit more complete than "1043".

<just a friendly suggestion>

As far as I know Malwarebytes does not care if the system is Intel i5 or i7.

Could you explain what this means in more detail.

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...

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?
