    Looking good - Now combines anti-malware, exploit protection & anti-ransom products in one. I'm having a few problems with the beta remembering my settings on re-boot but happy issues will be sorted on final. Scans far faster than original Malwarebytes along with many new features.

    It's now being touted as a 'Next-Generation Antivirus Replacement' - So make of it what you will :-)

    I prefer the new plainer look & none garish colours, much nicer, still no bloat & IMO the best anti-malware program around - A must have.

    Am loving 2.1 UI changes. Very clean I must say. Need not comment on functionality. :)
