The following are the known issues for the first MBAM 2.0 Beta:
- You should uninstall Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.75 first and reboot prior to installing the 2.0 beta if running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO or the free Trial. You do not need to run mbam-clean.exe.
- English is the only language available at this time. Additional languages will be available for release.
- The current beta build cannot function under limited user accounts and results in constant high CPU usage. A solution is currently in the works but for now it is recommended that you only run MBAM 2.0 beta under administrative user accounts.
- The current beta will not update through a proxy even if configured to do so via Update Settings
