    Still have issue mentioned in changelog above '- Fixed issue where “Real-Time Protection disabled” notifications would display throughout the day (NOTE: this notification may still be seen on reboot on some systems, but we’re working on another longer-term fix to address that separately' (I'm so very happy) This was reported on first beta BTW DKDude.

    Seems its mainly with fast SSD's & many others have the same problem along with other unsolved problems, should have stayed in beta longer - Been a fan of this program for many, many years but what idiot thought the version before this was a final?

    Solve the bloody problems in beta next time.

    MBAM is still getting better and better, used this from the very early start, and have never had any issues what so ever, my old lifetime license was added without any problems, and now we have MBAE and MBAR too.

    Use Malwarebytes software on my phones and tablets too.

    Keep up the good work.

    @Steve1209 - Agree with you regarding beta issues carried on into the final.. I have a problem where the program insists all security setting haven't been set & I get a pop-up on each re-boot. Seems on the forum this is a known problem with the releases build. Not a good idea to release a program with such large problems to the general public as some will try it have problems & never return.

    Still needs work & many are having the program use large amounts of RAM among other problems ~ However from memory this has happened several times in the past with early Malwarebytes release builds & betas in the past have always been unusually buggy & more like alpha builds - You might be best to wait a couple of weeks before installing?

    i was trialing the BETA of this program as I have a Lifetime license, the weird thing, this is still a little slow and still has some beta bugs not sure why they released it as a finished product before ALL the bugs were resolved, I think it still needs another round or two to get ALL the beta bugs corrected. I like all the products are included in a single application now. Going to give it a 4 because they released it too early IMHO.

    this is one of the best anti spyware tools there is. i combine this with a couple of other tools but this one is definitely one of the most diligent monitors of incoming system activity!

    While recently trying to download the latest printer driver for my mother's printer which i wanted to print a few items with from my laptop, i inadvertantly downloaded the hardware helper program, and after a scan, not only did it ask for $29.95 to fix several driver's that it said needed updates, but it has changed my access level internally. I am still listed as Administrator, but am unavailable to un-install this as i am prompted that I do not have administrator access. Also, There are several minor things that Kasdpersky found, that i also am not being allowed to correct for the same reason that I dio not have administrator access ... PLEASE HELP ! I run SpyBot Search and Destroy, which only finds cookies, and Malwareware Bytes ... PLEASE HELP I NEED THIS REMOVED, and Administrator access restored.
    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED !
