I appreciate, however, that they are not guaranteed to issue definition updates after the EOL date, so it is a question of establishing now whether it is generally recommended to upgrade to version 3.x or to switch to a different product (and if so, which).

I assume version 3.x is available as a free manual scanner which is how I would intend to use it as with the previous versions?

I still use v1.75 and STILL receive definition updates.

I was told that most of the improvement that went into v2x was UI and stability related, and that most of the detection and cleaning ability in v1.75 was still as good. Is that still the case?

That's from Post 2 here:-

Dont want 3.* - Malwarebytes 3 - Malwarebytes Forums
Well, I reinstalled v2.2.1.1043, and it doesn't say "your program is outdated" nor does it offer to upgrade to the newer version, thanks to the steps in the "don't want 3" link (above). Thanks, Seffrid!

I also updated the definitions database to v.2017.06.17.07. We'll see how it goes!

Can someone weigh in on this at all?

Hi,
Not sure why anyone would still be on 1.75 personally :/
I can see a valid reason for not going to 3.... though :)
2.... has been fine for sometime now so put on the big girl patties and upgrade the sucker

I agree with Bill. The last few releases of MB3 have been fine.

For you, maybe. I still occasionally have the full time protection turned off when my computer reboots and I have to shut down and reboot MBAM to get it turned on again.

It does seem to be inconsistent.

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?
