  1. Thank you again for your reply, and the additional details. (Can one get extra mashed potatoes with the chicken dinner? 😊) Cheers.
  2. Thank you for your reply. What is curious is that reliable download sites such as MajorGeeks and Softpedia report that MWB was released today (19 FEB 2021), implying that this is a new version: https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/malwarebytes_anti_malware.html https://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware.shtml
  3. In a Windows 7 Pro x64 installation (with extended update support), the version of MWB Premium displayed in the app's "About" panel has been stuck at version since it updated to that version some time ago (as is also displayed under Programs and Features in the Control Panel) . Manually installing version (followed by a Windows restart) changed nothing. However, the actual installed version located in C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes\Anti-Malware — the Malwarebytes Setup File labeled as "mbuns" in the folder (195 MB) — is indeed the correct version (and it has been af
  4. Neil J. Rubenking at PC Magazine has been performing his own in-depth testing of anti-malware solutions for many years; here is his evaluation of MWB 4.0 (2019.11.13): https://www.pcmag.com/review/322060/malwarebytes-premium

  6. Hello nikhils, Thank you for your reply. Not to beat this to death, but when MWB version 3 replaced version 2, I do recall some grumblings about the changes to the GUI, but they ultimately made sense (eye-candy aside...). It is intuitive (both to myself and all those I know who use MWB) and relatively "clean". After all, this is a utility; we who have premium licenses do not frequently open it, and when we do, it is for specific purposes (configuration settings, logs, updating, etc.). Again, thank you for your reply. Cheers, AJN
  7. Greetings: Agree with the comments above. I've been using MWB since version 1 (and have several lifetime premium licenses). To borrow a phrase to describe the GUI of version 4 (beta) compared to version 3, "It wasn't broke" (there was nothing to "fix"). Simply put, the current GUI is atrocious; the old adage of "KISS" (Keep It Simple, Stupid) absolutely applies here. This GUI is cluttered with needless (and annoying) eye candy, is not intuitive and is frankly a pain to use -- whereas the version 3 GUI is straightforward and allows for easy deep-dives into the application
