If you are referring to an "MBAM Pro" disk you have, you should not use is probably an older version and you would have to do a Program Update after using the disk.

The latest MBAM download file is the same for MBAM free, MBAM trial, and MBAM Pro.

If you already have the latest "MBAM free" program version installed, you don't need to re-install...
The only difference is how a person uses the latest download file during or after installing...
If someone wants to try the "real-time trial", don't unclick the "Trial checkbox"...
If someone has a license and wants to use "real-time PRO", enter the license info after installing the latest version.
Shouldn't make any difference, installing from the older disk or latest download, the program well do a update as part of the initial installation. I have the commercial disk of MBAM and SASW, both update to current version when installed.

Windows 7 Home, 64 bit

Thanks Dave for the reply.

I did post the same question to Malwarebyte's as suggested here by Golden. By-the-way Golden, thanks for your reply and suggestion. I would have thanked you earlier, but there is no reply window for your window message.

Anyway, Malwarebytes seemed to have removed the question? I checked throughout their forum and could not find the post. I posted it in the General section.

So, thanks everybody for your time and suggestions. Maybe its just a glitch?

Computer does not fully shut down or go to sleep
My laptop occasionally does not completely shut down/sleep/hibernate. It goes through all the steps up to where the screen turns off, but I can tell the computer doesn't turn off because the power button stays lit up as well as the lighted keyboard. Laptop originally had Vista 64bit installed...

Windows 7 will not fully shut down, problems with sleep mode.
Hello all, I recently purchased a new computer, an Alienware, and have had some issues with shutting down and sleep mode. When I try to shut the computer down, it frequently stalls on the "shutting down" screen, and no matter how long I leave it, it will stay there, so I have to manually turn...
