    Version 4.5.21.231
    Release Date: January 30, 2023
    Release notes: Malwarebytes 4.5.21

    Features and improvements

    Smart Scan - We just changed the game for scheduled scans with Smart Scan! The Smart Scan option now allows a scheduled scan to start only if the computer is in an idle state. Limiting scheduled scans to start only idle time will provide a significant performance improvement as the default nightly scheduled scan (that is typically skipped because the device is usually powered off at night) will no longer kickoff when the computer is first started and hog resources that are needed for the task at hand.

    - Smart Scan is automatically enabled for the default scheduled scan
    - Smart Scan is on by default for all new scheduled scans

    Scan reminder for new downloads - Our Free product is now even more amazing with new logic that reminds you to scan when we find new files in the download folder. While this isn’t a substitute for Real-Time Protection, it helps build better security habits.

    Security Advisor:

    - Check startup apps - Assists you in optimizing your computer performance by helping to find apps that have a high impact on Windows startup.
    - Notify for new issues - Updated the display logic so that these notifications no longer auto-dismiss.

    New background - Malwarebytes has a fresh new look thank to the newly added Clean Sky background. Now users can choose between three great backgrounds to personalize Malwarebytes.

    Improved error handling for update issues - Today users see an error dialog if the UI is open when a background update fails. This is a poor user experience because the issue is most often automatically resolved on the next update attempt.

    Minor performance improvements

    Added translations for new UI flows

    Issues fixed

    - Missing scan details on Scheduled Scans page
    - Button displays incorrectly in Dark mode
    - Global stats not populating on Real-Time Protection page

    The Chameleon is great I believe it lets people delete threats easily and lets MBAM run when blocked, small but useful update.

    Several years ago I won the paid version of Malwarebytes and it always worked great. I have just updated to the most current version and find that the real time protection becomes disabled at each boot. I have restored Malwarebytes to the earlier version and it works fine, again. Might be a bug in the latest version. To all those that have the paid version,you may want to check that your real time protection is still enabled after boot.

    I've updated a few Win 7 PC's with MBAM Pro to the new version and I haven't seen this problem.
    I do see some people reporting the issue in the MBAM forum.

    Here is one of those threads - post #8 is the post with suggestions to fix it.

    I checked my updated version. I have a paid copy. After I restarted it did not start or show up in the notification area. As it turned out Win Patrol had blocked the startup. After I authorized it in Win Patrol, I restarted again and all is well.

    I have now tested it on Windows 7 and it looks OK. The first time I booted it took a while before the tray icon appeared. It may be a little buggy as they now have 2 choices on the protection tab. File System Protection and Website Blocking. I have both checked.
