  1. Except it's been going on two years and adding an opt-out option in v4 would have been trivial for the programmers. If there are issues (clearly there are) with the main Malwarebytes software... perhaps the priority should be fixing them and not creating additional products.
  2. I just got another popup for a Privacy add on or additional product. There have been other occasional marketing pop-ups since I created this thread. It's been almost two years and still no option to opt out of these messages. Why is this taking so long to implement?
  3. I gather Malwarebytes staff doesn't have a fix either? The upgrade notification is beyond aggravating at this point.
  4. And the behavior I just described happens on every PC I manage with Malwarebytes on. Disabling full version notification and deleting the instlrupdate folder only works for less than a day until the instlrupdate has to be deleted AGAIN.
  5. Yes... I'm well aware of both of those links. Neither one keeps it from coming back. I disabled the full upgrade notification when V4 was first announced. Still got and continue to get the upgrade notification. I've deleted the instlrupdate folder no less than 5 times now including again between my first post and this one. That was less than 12 hours before the nag came back. Again I ask, how do i PERMANENTLY disable the upgrade notification?
  6. Ok so what was the point in v3 of having the option to disable notification of when a full version is available? V3.8.3 will NOT take no for an answer. Deleting the installer folder out of ProgramData only solves the issue for a few days (or less) now. When you release a new version of the MBSetup.exe file, the upgrade notification comes back anyways. Page after page of V4 issues here on the forums have convinced me to stay far away from V4 for the foreseeable future. What can be done to PERMANENTLY block the upgrade notification until I decide to upgrade? At this point it is bor
  7. The current issue with Chrome/Firefox flagging the current installer reminded me about this and it's also being blocked as malware despite being much older. The "Free Download" link off https://www.malwarebytes.com/ leads to a different, non current, installer "mb3-setup-54035.54035-" https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3_54035 instead of https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3 What's with the different installer?
  8. Great... thanks! I did look through the settings tabs first to see if this option already existed.
  9. Just came back to my Windows PC to find a popup from the MBAM app asking if I wanted to learn more about the android version. Why are we getting marketing popups?
  10. Received a tech support call already regarding this today. Re-scanning w/1.0.5376 cleared the detection. It's getting old quick fielding support calls that are completely related to the issues with Malwarebytes.
  11. Still with version 3.5.1 I am seeing these random mbamservice.exe issues where it's at 25% and the system is running so slow it's useless. With 3.4.5 it was the ransomware module. Disabling that in 3.5.1 seems to solve the problem. This is happening randomly with multiple customers. My customers aren't interested in me running your support tool and taking up their time diagnosing the issues with your program. All of the issues lately with Malwarebytes isn't acceptable. The drawbacks of running the program are coming close to outweighing it's benefit.
