  1. Hello All:

    My MBP11,3, running macOS Catalina 10.15.3 (19D76), was just updated from v4.0.30.3073 to v4.1.28.3352 - 4.0.458.

    No reboot was required and a manual scan time takes the usual amount of time for approximately the same number of objects.  The app's signature/certificate verify.

    Thank you again for the updates team!

  2. Hello @brcd:

    It's rather pointless of me to report my v4.0.30 total scan times but yes my scans are significantly faster.  Perhaps that temporarily rules out the content of the protection update 4.0.457.

    Are you still using the same iMac you mentioned last year?  If you open the macOS Activity Monitor for CPU and then Memory, can you sort the columns and see a resource hog clue?

    Thank you.

  3. Hello @Mohap_20:

    It is disappointing to read that you spent so much time and effort on this MBAM404101 error issue. Thank you for the valuable mbst-grab attachment.

    The Windows system of the computer in question must have unimpeded Internet access with all Malwarebytes Servers. For the Malwarebytes product licensing activation procedure to succeed and sustain, this condition, on that computer, must be corrected in either of two ways:

    1) (Preferred) Reset the Windows HOSTS file to its default by following Microsoft's support document for the version of Windows installed using: How to reset the Hosts file back to the default
    2) With a text editor or the Windows Notepad utility, please open the HOSTS file at:


    Then, please permanently delete the following present entry line in the above HOSTS file followed by a save:


    Then, restart Windows 10 Pro and proceed to activate the Malwarebytes 4 for Windows product license.

    Then, please reply to this topic and let the forum know if the Malwarebytes license activation process succeeded.

    Thank you.

    I realise that grumbling about a flaw in MBARW is like looking a gift horse in the mouth.

    Au contraire @hake.  This is one of the prime reasons the perpetual beta MBARW exists!  Those defects that are found now and resolved here will soon find there way to the ARW module etc in the flagship product.  (Consumer and Enterprise)

    Thank you always for your diligence! 👍

    Hmm. I find that beta 9 was released on Nov'11

    That date is when the last Component Update Package for the Consumer MBARW Beta 9 was made available.  Not the initial release of Beta 9.

    The original Consumer MBARW Beta 9 was released years ago.  Reference: Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Release Notes

    In the middle of that decade, I might have considered using that "publication" you sited to line the bottom of our parakeet's cage.  But in retrospect I'm certain she would have strongly objected.

  6. In the so-called article sited, the UI illustrated, and presumably the Beta 8 version reviewed, had been released nearly 3 1/2 years ago.  (Sept. 6, 2016)

    The subsequent improvements and fixes to Beta 8 were so extensive as to require a Beta 8 uninstall followed by a fresh install of Beta 9 to accomplish the update.

  7. Hello @paul95682:

    As a fix for the mbam.exe access violation issue, please consider updating your MB4's Component Package Version to 1.0.804 BETA:


    Then, please update this topic and let the forum know your system's status.

    Thank you.

  8. This merely will embellish with a visual aid Maurice's fine #46 post for those who seem to feel they are at the end of the list for metered downloads and do not wish to wait:
