  1. Hello Firstly, I have been using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for a few months now and I am very happy with the product, so I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the Malwarebytes staff for contributing to producing such a fantastic product. However, I do have some suggestions to make the product better, I would be extremely grateful if these changes were implemented into your next product version: 1. Can the User Account Control (UAC) warning be removed/skipped? (Like CCleaner does) I find it quite annoying, especially as I trust Malwarebytes with my PC, so I don't want to keep pressing 'Yes' every single time I want to use it. Also, as far as I'm aware, you cannot add UAC exceptions in Windows 8; otherwise I would've just done that. 2. Could you make the 'Database is outdated' message appear, even when you scan a file/folder with Malwarebytes? At the moment, it only comes up when you open the application directly. So, if you want to scan just the odd file every now and again which you've just downloaded to double-check it's clean, you end up scanning with outdated database definitions. Thanks very much, Transformers
  2. Hello guys my name is Brian. I'm a long time user of MB but seem to be having some issues with the new Version, 2 things. 1. System is not fully protected - This just started happening a few day ago, updates/system restart will not fix. 2. Database is out of date - 4+ clean installs has not fixed, also ran the Mbam-clean and still not working with clean install. Love the MB product as its saved me a few time, just not feeling as safe with my current issues. Been reading and i did run some checks as i will post them now for you guys. The only way i could get the Out of date Database to work was to change the check out of date number to 5 vs 1. Thanks guys and the MB team hope to hear back from you soon.

  3. Hi all, I recommend MBAM to all my clients and help them purchase and install it. I manage a lot of these PCs on an ongoing basis and notice a trend that MBAM is very out of date. It seems to happen when the program is old and has to be updated. After downloading the program and installing it, it will say the database is outdated by tens of days, like 30-something, 40-something days! This isn't isolated, it happens every time the program gets manually updated. -If the program is newly installed, the database definitions seem to update by themselves just fine, until a program update is needed (installation of a new version). -If the program is updated AND I manually click through the warning balloon to update the definitions, I think the definitions will auto-update like normal. A- was the database outdated BEFORE the program update? (I don't think so) B- was the program updated but it included an old (month to month and a half) old database? (doubtful) C- if the program was just updated, why can't it go out and download and install the latest database like it normally does, day-to-day? D- general PC users are lazy with their upkeep. This we know. A large part of what we all do is to save users from themselves. Why can't MBAM update the program itself like it can with database updates? To me this is a HUGE security hole. I run across this weekly, if not nearly daily on all the PCs I work on. These customers of yours aren't getting the security they paid for if the program doesn't get updated, and if it does, the database is a month old. Is there any explanation for this? -RickNCN
