1. Malwarebytes 3.0 premium/trial and beta stand-alone protection agents Let's consider this scenario. We have a user that uses Malwarebytes 3.0 premium or trial but he/she also wants to beta test at least 1 stand-alone protection agent. While there is no reason to do this at this monent considering this timeline: <table border='1'> <tr> <th>Stand-alone protection agent - latest public beta</th> <th>Announce date</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware v.0.9.17.661</th> <th>September 6</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit v22.214.171.1240</th> <th>December 5</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Malwarebytes 3.0</th> <th>December 8</th> </tr> </table> this issue will definitely come into play later on. At this moment it is safe to assume that Malwarebytes 3.0 includes these agents functionalities as it is implemented in their latest versions outlined in this table, but this is meant to change. I theoretically see only one way for this - disable the real time protection layer in Malwarebytes 3.0 that the user intends to substitute with the beta agent implementation. While this looks like a neat workaround it has some problems: -Malwarebytes 3.0 will keep bragging that one or more protection layers are disabled; -I didn't test this, there could be conflicts - most likely device drivers overlaps and is unsupported. Updated: made a check with Autoruns and definitely there will be drivers overlaps (mbae64.sys and farflt.sys).

Late alert about protection disabled during database update This known issue is pretty annoying considering that nobody mentioned the fact that this alert which comes late informing about an event that has already expired also steals input focus.

The dashboard doesn't mention database version and most importantly last definition update The dashboard only mentions if databases are current. Although I can lookup database version in Settings - About, the time of last definition update can only be looked up from logs: %ProgramData%\Malwarebytes\MBAMService\dbupdate.log This needs improvement. 4. Reports panel needs some organising per days. It will quickly get cluttered.
