    This is a nice improvement, much less drag on the overall system as compared to last version. I typically stick with older systems until they die, so I can tell when a program is being a drag. Might it miss some malware, probably not, as some are now suggesting. And even so that's why it's best to also use a third party firewall as well as maybe something like WinPatrol, and other security enhancements. If you aren't networking your PC then turn off NetBIOS over TCP/IP, and enable DEP for all programs, malware blocking hosts file, etc. Don't rely on just one piece of software for security, nothing is foolproof.

    BTW, this review is for the last 3.1.x final version, not this current beta one.

    I own two lifetime licenses. Mbam 3 freezes my two computers on shutdown when running Hostsman 4.7.105. Filed several reports with Malwarebytes forum but problem was never fixed. Uninstalled Mbam 3 and no more problems.

    Sadly I have to agree with the comments below, Mbam was the best for some time, its took several updates to even get a working program. Tests have shown Mbam to be far behind other anti-malware products such as Zemana.

    Seems to some degree they have lost the plot, sad to say but true.I have lifetime licenses for Mbam so still run it from time to time but rely on Zemana & Hitmanpro Alert..
