Every anti virus programs have their naysayers.

If Norton works for you and your happy, go for it.

I have Norton running quite happily alongside MB3. They don't seem to interfere with each other.

ESET NOD32 seems to be fine with latest version of Malwarebytes.

That is exactly what my point was.
Different things work for different people and systems.

With a little time the bugs will be worked out.
My faith comes from the fact that Malwarebytes has always worked the bug out and it doesn't take long.

I sincerely hope your optimism comes true, Jack. Unfortunately, I recall a time when Norton/Symantec was the go-to company for antivirus programs. Then they decided to revamp everything and they became a bloated, nearly unusable product for many people. It took them about 3 years to regain the trust they once had. I hope Malwarebytes doesn't go down the same path.

This is the first time that I recall Malwarebytes turning out such a poor product.
I have had licenses since 2008 and although it works on 2 of my computers- that's about it.
3 more to go and I am afraid to go further.

It's not the issues with the actual V3 product that worry me, that's fixable I believe, ( the product was not ready for prime time so should not have been released). what worries me is the direction the company seems to be taking - the fast track to Bloat central, they're buying up other products and combining products into the flagship product. As with other All in one type products they tend to become a "jack of all trades, Master of none" product, they take more resources and if there is one part with an issue the whole product is tainted.

I also suspect that the more aggressive stance with PUPs is a lot to do with sales "Sound Bytes" like the one already reported where they state the huge number of deletions of PUPs achieved, if a lot of them are false positives what value is the data.

Oh, it was a doozy when 2.0 first came out. I waited a long time before I upgraded to make sure the worst bugs were worked out.

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?
