  1. @Firefox, I got the upgrade notification pop up on my Desktop, and the one whenever I open up my Malwarebytes Program to stop. And, the main page of my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to stop displaying the "Your Program Version is Out of Date" and "Install Now" notification. My Malwarebytes Anti-Malware notification icon, displayed when you click the little up arrow on the Taskbar no longer shows a caution sign either. In addition to changing my Update Options settings (I unchecked both) as shown above, and Automated Scheduling for Updates, I looked in the folder you indicated above (hid
  2. @Firefox, I unchecked the Update Options and Automated Scheduling for Updates. I rebooted, but I'm still getting the pop up, and the "Program Version is Out of Date...Install Now" on the programs main page. I manually check for updates every time I log on and before scans. If nothing can be done, that's fine. I keep the program's definitions up-to-date.
  3. The latest version of Malwarebytes 3.0 (v. was pushed out to my computer today. I "do not" want to upgrade from Malwarebytes to Malwarebytes 3.0 (v. yet. From what I'm reading on this forum, problems still exist with the newer version of Malwarebytes, and given the problems I had when I upgraded back in late December, I want to hold off upgrading for now. I understand Malwarebytes will continue to support v. until June 8, 2017. This upgrade gave me all kinds of problems, and that's why I returned to smoother than butter version 2.0. Honestly, if I
  4. Something is confusing me here on one of the problems plaguing Malwarebytes 3.0. It's that some of my fellow users are running scans and these scans are getting stuck on various files. But, what's more disturbing to me, when someone allows a scan to continue for 24-32 hours, and apparently this is par for the course for Malwarebytes 3.0. I'm not an expert, I'm an average user, but when does a scan last 32 hours? I can understand if I was wiping my hard drive using a multi-pass overwrite program. But, I've never had a security scan last more than three hours, and I have a 500 GB hard drive. If
  5. digmorcrusher, Are you running Emsisoft Anti-Malware Full Version (Real-time) or the passive (non-Real-time)? I know Emsisoft started advising against running real-time with other security programs, however, for years now, I have been running Emsisoft Anti-Malware Full Version (which uses two detection engines, theirs and Bitdefender's), Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (free), McAfee LiveSafe Anti-Virus Suite, and Adguard Premium. Up until I downloaded Malwarebytes 3.0, I never had any major issues with any of my programs. What I listed above never occurred be
  6. The more I read, the more I realize many of us are having the same problems. And, many of us are Windows 7 64-bit users as well. It was more than frustrating waiting for Malwarebytes 3.0 to open or update. I'm one of those people who updates their security programs as soon as I get Internet connected. I don't wait for Malwarebytes to update on its own, I update it manually every time I turn on my computer. But, with 3.0, it was taking too long and sometimes wouldn't open at all or update. It was killing my ritual. I'm glad I wasn't the only one whose desktop would shade over white when everyth
  7. A few days ago I found out on Filehippo.com that Malwarebytes 3.0 was released and ready for download. Being a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.2.1 Premium and Malwarebyte Anti-Exploit (Free) user I downloaded the new version. As expected, it removed both versions and replaced them with Malwarebytes 3.0. From that point on, my problems began. Listed are the problems I experienced with 3.0. - Very, very slow launch of 3.0 when clicked on from the Taskbar - Scan lockup using all three scan types. The scanner time continues, but the program is frozen on a file. The frozen file wa
