which versions of windows does malwarebytes support?


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I know that Malwarebytes supports all of the latest windows and even Windows XP but will it also support earlier versions of Windows such as Windows 2000, Windows 98 and Windows 95?

 

Yes i have a few laptops which although they work very well they are quite old using Windows 98.

 

Thanks

 

Simon

Hi:
 
Welcome. :)
 
"Malwarebytes" is the company name.
There are many different Consumer, Business/Enterprise and Technician products.
There may be some differences for system requirements, depending on the product - the full details can be found at the main page, http://www.malwarebytes.org/. :)
 
You have posted in the Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE) product section, but are you referring to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM), by any chance?
 
For MBAM, the software requirements are:
Windows Vista/Windows7/Windows 8 (32 bit or 64 bit)
Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Later
Internet Explorer 6 or newer
 
For MBAE, they are:
Windows 8.1® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows 8® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows 7® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows Vista® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows XP® (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
Hope this helps,

I have Malwarebytes Anti Malware Premium which cost me £25 a year for Windows XP. I have no idea what MBAM and MBAE are? I know a lot of people who still use older versions of Windows like Windows 98 or Me etc and if Malwarebytes Anti Malware Premium was available and could keep their PC safe then that would be a good thing.

OK, so now it's a bit more clear.
You are referring to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM).
The system software requirements are >>HERE<< at the product web page:
Windows Vista/Windows7/Windows 8 (32 bit or 64 bit)
Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Later
Internet Explorer 6 or newer

(As such, the mod team might relocate this post, as it is in a forum section devoted to another, different product. No worries ;) .)

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE) is another, different product.

There are free and paid versions.

It works alongside Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) and alongside your antivirus to help protect computer.

You can read more about it >>HERE<<.

 

The system OS requirements are listed >>HERE<< on the product web page:

Windows 8.1® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows 8® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows 7® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows Vista® (32-bit, 64-bit)
Windows XP® (32-bit, 64-bit)

 

I hope this helps a bit -- it can be a bit confusing (especially for newcomers), as there have been many new products released in the past year or so.

If you visit the company main home page >>HERE<<, you can read all about each product and the versions of the Windows OS each supports. :)

 

Alas, we will need to wait for a staff member to weigh in about running any of the Malwarebytes family of products on Win 95, Win 98 or Win 2000.

 

Thanks,
