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..

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. :)

Interface much improved & more bug fixes, Mbam have managed to still keep the program none bloated & they listen to their customers on their forum - Best anti-malware there is !

Like the new GUI More options available such as rootkit scanning and you can now exclude IP addresses and domains from website blocking.Full scan seems much faster.

Interface somewhat Windows 8 - IMO probably better if you have a 12" monitor or can't your 27" display as it's very much in your face & dumbed down for the masses.

Good to see rootkit/exploit now integrated - According to the forum old lifetime licenses will be honoured but looks like they are going to cease issuing lifetime licences after final....

BTW you need to use the beta licensing details as your full licence details won't work while its in beta - And uninstall Mbam 1.x before installing beta.
