Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.00.0.0503 Beta

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is a high performance anti-malware application that thoroughly removes even the most advanced malware and spyware. With one of the fastest, most effective quick scans and malware removal capabilities on the market, this program is the perfect addition to your PC's defenses.

The full version of the product includes a number of key features, including the ability to schedule updates and scans and most importantly, a real-time malware protection module that blocks malicious processes before they even start.

What's new in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0 Beta:

  • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware now scans the registry hives (HKCU keys) for all user accounts instead of just the current user account so that a single scan can now detect and remove all malware and malware traces from the entire system
  • Chameleon now functions for running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware against infections
  • Chameleon updated to deal with the latest rogue/fake AV infections
  • Several application crashes fixed
  • Several issues causing BSODs under certain scenarios fixed
  • Scan and protection logs improved to use more consistent formatting
  • Several items in the UI will now display in their translated language instead of showing only in English
  • Scan results can now be saved at the end of a scan prior to taking any actions against detected items
  • Threats quarantined by Malware Protection may now be restored without rebooting the system
  • Quarantine tab now refreshes to display recently quarantined threats without restarting Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
  • Scan logs are no longer blank under certain scenarios
  • HTML and BBC options removed from export log function
  • Number for objects detected during scans is no longer misaligned
  • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium now functions correctly on XP with self-protection enabled
  • Dashboard now informs user when they have a 1.x license key installed but no 2.x key and gives them the opportunity to input a valid 2.x key
  • Several issues with removable drives and removable media fixed for Custom scans and right-click context menu scans
  • avp.exe (Kaspersky) and avastsvc.exe (Avast!) can no longer be excluded from Web Exclusions in order to prevent users from inadvertantly disabling Malicious Website Protection
  • Antirootkit scans no longer detect encrypted non-OS drives as containing forged sectors

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

Whenever someone asks me about a problem they might have with their PC, this program is the first I recommend. I could count for days how many people who are not tech savvy have been put off by the horrible old UI in this program. This is a good change, and I don't understand users who know their way around a piece of software bitching about looks like manchildren.

The UI is great for those who might not know or don't want to know every single thing about the program, especially since it's free. With this new UI anyone can have an easier time setting up malware protection, unlike most people I've recommended it to in the past.

Advanced users can always find whatever they need in a program when it changes it's look because they're supposed to be advanced users, not crybabies.

It's a great program but I'm not a fan of this new UI. So much blue, and it looks like one of those rogue antivirus programs people get infected with.

Here we go with the looks again! Sheesh!

Does it work correctly for you? Then who cares what it looks like!

At least it isn't some baby s**t green!!

I'll wait for the final release.

Wow, I didn't mean to enrage anyone. Just stating an opinion. Saying that no one cares what a program looks like is pretty silly though; of course people care. More importantly in the case of a security program I'd say looks are pretty darned important, especially when there are dozens of dangerous scam programs masquerading as legitimate antivirus companies. Personally I wouldn't want my program to look like those. I know it's beta but what better time to give feedback?

Didn't enrage anyone here, but I always find it amusing, especially when that's the only complaint, or type of feedback, anyone can give on something.

Personally,
I don't care what so ever on what the thing looks like as long as it works like it's supposed to. I mean, if I'm using it, especailly some type of scanner which usually takes quite some time, the LAST thing I'm doing is setting here looking at!

Of course, I DO check out what and where I'm downloading something from first, even if it's something I've heard about here first.

Sorry, if you thought I was enraged!

It's really the only complaint I had and it isn't anything major. I've used it for years and it's a must have program. I guess I'll mention that I think this is a really nice and needed improvement then. I always hated having to log out and rescan a PC for every user.

Totally agree with that and have used it for years also!!

Now that's definitely an improvement. Glad you said that part. Hadn't read that.
