Same here, but I left the MBAM window open for a while(don't know if that did it or not) and now it shows:

I looked through all of the settings pages and it doesn't have the option anymore to update versions automatically like 1.75.... used to have ?

Looks like I'll have to monitor it for a day or two and see if it switches on a daily scheduled update

Still using 1.75 as I've had crashing issues with all Beta releases. I'll try this new one and see what happens!

Just came back to to my computer after 20 mins and automatically received the update notification, Thanks for the update Bill as after checking for updates yesterday I thought this version was still in beta.

I rolled back to v1.75 when they first introduced v2 because definition file updates took forever. I had the problem on 2 PCs and tried over a number of days to make sure it wasn't an ISP issue.
Maybe v2.0.3.1025 has fixed this problem?

MBAM working

Well it's worked for me with no crashes this version. A couple of strange things though. Heuristics scanning was not selected in the settings but was still performed. Database updates worked fine. There's no scheduled updates in the free version.

Scanned one drive (Windows) and it took ages. 2+ hours.

EEK scanned three drives including rootkit scan in just under 2 hours. Same detections. (False positives as those registry entries are intentionally added but not standard)

Scan type: Custom Scan
Objects: Rootkits, Memory, Traces, C:\, D:\, V:\

Detect PUPs: On
Scan archives: Off
ADS Scan: On
File extension filter: Off
Advanced caching: On
Direct disk access: Off

Scan start:	12/10/2014 03:33:14

Scanned	193454
Found	2

Scan end:	12/10/2014 05:32:37
Scan time:	1:59:23
Will I keep using MBAM? Yes it's my first choice for an additional on demand scanner.

I forgot to add, this version installed over the previous with no issue. I have had no issues with the previous version updating definitions or scanning. I only had issues updating the program. No problem this time, and it's working great

Malwarebytes is getting worse and worse. Installed the newest version and it is disabling itself!

What the heck are they doing over there?

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?
