Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Beta

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

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 Beta:

  • Brand new UI design! Much cleaner look with a toned-down color scheme.
  • Improved scan flow – all scans now automatically check for and apply the latest database updates so you're always scanning with the latest protection. (Exception: this will not occur if you have the option to “check for updates before scanning” disabled.)
  • You’ll automatically be prompted to download new program updates for the beta whenever they’re available. You can check back to this thread for details on the latest changes included in the new versions.
  • Simplified Quarantine flow – threats detected are pre-selected for removal and users are presented with a single “Remove Selected” button. Clicking “Remove Selected” quarantines all checked items. If you uncheck any threats you will see a new dialog asking what action should be taken on the unselected items: Ignore Once, Ignore Always, Cancel.
  • Improved malware protection capabilities, including enhanced rootkit detection and removal.
  • The Minimize button now minimizes the main program window to the taskbar instead of the tray.
  • Addressed numerous issues with Scheduled Scans, including showing the correct date for “Next schedule scan” on the dashboard.

Known issues:

  • The What’s New / Release Notes included in the installer have not yet been updated and are showing old items from the 2.0.3 release.
  • Text strings new to 2.1 have not yet been translated. (This will be happening over the next several weeks.)
  • The tables throughout the UI will be updated for consistency and improved behavior prior to release.
  • The informational module shown during scan (and on Scan Results page for Free and Trial) includes several links that are not yet active.
