2 quick questions before I purchase MalwareBytes!

Recommended Posts

Hi, floyd22:

The consumer license for MBAM PRO is "lifetime" and may be transferred to another computer. :)

It can only be used on 1 computer at a time, though.

There are, however, discounts for purchasing multiple licenses at the same time (e.g. if you need 1 for your desktop and another for your laptop).

Chameleon is a special tool that is part of the current version of MBAM. :)

It is used to allow MBAM to run on an infected machine when the program will not run normally b/c of the malware.

More information about it can be found in the tutorials in this article.

I found a a file named Malwarebytes Chameleon in my Firefox program folder. Is that a virus or is MalwareBytes just doing it's job?

That file is normal. We use several file names that are known to often be whitelisted (allowed to run) by infections. It's one of many methods that Chameleon uses in order to get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware running when it is blocked from doing so by infections.
