Well, the latest version has NOT fixed the occasional dropping out of Malware Protection when my computer reboots. .

I updated both over the top of the older version as per the instructions and they both worked.

Thanks for the suggestion Jack, I tried as you said and still the same for me.

I'll wait until the bugs are worked out.

I went to the Malwarebytes forums to try and find a fix for the Malware protection drop outs. After some downloads for diagnostic, downloaded and ran a malware remover (wait a minute, I thought Malwarebytes 3 was supposed to do that!) and downloading and running a Malwarebytes 3 removal program that froze up and I had to finally manually shutdown the stupid thing, downloading and reinstalling Malwarebytes 3, then going through hell to get the stupid thing to take my license, I think I may have finally fixed the problem.

Even getting registered onto the stupid forum was a study in frustration. They are really picky about what constitutes a strong password. Getting past the blasted, misbegotten CAPTCHAs was a nightmare (I already hate the stupid things but theirs were really bad)!

I really wish Malwarebytes' software programmers would get their act together.

Not everyone has problems with Malwarebytes 3. It depends on what other antivirus/antimalware software you have whether you will have problems or not. Malwarebytes should not be making claims of compatibility with all programs simply because it isn't always true. Based on the number of issues they had (and are still having) when v2 and V3 came out, they appear to be adopting a policy similar to MS' of releasing an update/upgrade without adequate testing and letting consumers be their beta testers.

Adding insult to injury, Malwarebytes is becoming more and more bloated. Similar to MS and Win 10, they want one product to do all on all computers.

Bill, you forgot to mention the fear factor. Software vendors would never dream of causing you issues. Rumor has it a rattlesnake once bit your leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the rattlesnake died.

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?
