The following are the known issues for the first MBAM 2.0 RC1:
- Attempting to use some OpenVPN client software such as AirVPN and CyberGhost VPN 5, with self-protection enabled will result in the VPN client becoming unresponsive. Disabling self-protection should resolve the issue.
- Notifications for successful updates will not be displayed in the tray even if the option "Show notification after successful update" is enabled for scheduled updates.
- At the end of any scan where items have been detected, the program will be unable to update until actions have been applied to all items.
- Dashboard database version area will show a green checkmark unless the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware's database is outdated by the number of days configured in the "Notify user if database is out of date for more than n# day(s)." setting.
- Notifications which do not timeout do not disappear until the "X" at the top of the notification is clicked or the button provided by the notification is clicked.
- Notifications which are obsolete may stack behind other notifications.
- The registry cannot be scanned from limited user accounts. It is recommended that all scans be performed from administrative user accounts which are now able to detect and remove threats from all user registry hives, including those of offline user accounts.
- Right-click 'Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware' context menu item in Explorer is disabled by default. It may be enabled via the option under "General Settings"
- The "General Settings" button will not respond if clicked on in the upper left quadrant of the button.
- Items listed in Malware Exclusions and Web Exclusions will have a set of duplicate entries after each database update which has occurred since mbam.exe started during the current Windows session. Removing one duplicate will remove all duplicates along with the original item from the list. Exiting Malwarebytes Anti-Malware completely and launching it again or restarting the system will return the Exclusions list to normal until another update occurs. This is purely a cosmetic issue and has no effect on exclusions functioning properly.
- A pop-up notification that a webpage will be opened in your internet browser is displayed on Windows XP when web links are clicked in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This should not cause any issues and clicking on 'OK' should allow the webpage to open as it should.
- Disabling notifications only removes non-critical notifications so that you are still informed of problems with your protection.
