I have disabled all of the notifications in MWB for Android, save for the persistent notification for RTP (heeding its warnings about Android system killing the process). Unfortunately, I get notifications (with sound) any time MWB begins scanning something, as well as a notification that the item is safe. WHY?!?!!? First off, why the f*** would I need such a notification? Secondly, why do I need two notifications-- one that it's starting a scan, then another one that the item is safe? This is made worse by application groups that do their own-self updating (e.g., Oculus, Facebook), which could result in multiple updates at a time.
I was away from my computer for most of the day today; during this time the PC was in sleep mode. When I returned and logged on, I found 8 separate identical popups saying "A new version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is ready to be installed. Install now?" What seems to happen is that the application pops open an alert, and then after some time passes it simply pops open another one, and then later another one and later another one, and so on. I appreciate being alerted to the fact that a new version is ready, but I do not need multiple popups telling me this. Just one single popup would be sufficient. I assume this is a bug rather than a feature. I googled for this issue but didn't find other reports (couldn't search the forums since the forum search was throwing up an error message). I'm using v. 18.104.22.1687 Premium on Windows 7, normally logged in with a standard user account (not admin account). The setting for "Check for program updates when checking for database updates" is checked. "Check for updates" is set for once every hour.
