Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.0.3 Released

Recommended Posts

Greetings :)

I'm proud to announce the release of our latest version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware: version 2.0.3 for consumers.

This release is heavily focused on the fixing of bugs, accessibility and squashing new malware. It is now available for download from here.

For the time being, in order to balance server load, we'll be throttling upgrades for existing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware users when they check for updates, but if you'd like to get the new version immediately, go right ahead and download it from the link above and install it over your existing version.

As always, if you encounter any problems, bugs or issues please report them in a new topic here or contact our Support team directly here. Also, feel free to check out our user guides and FAQs located here.

We also plan to make some major changes to our user interface (UI) in our next release, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.1.0 which is due out early next year so keep your eye on our newsletter, social networking pages and of course our forums here for more info as it becomes available. We've got some exciting changes in the works, and we'll definitely want to be showing them off as they get closer to completion :)!

Version has a bug that shows the Malicious Website Protection as disabled and it cannot be activated.


This is pretty alarming.


Also, after running a HyperScan, it fails, and you click the "Show Detailed Log" and it just open a desktop Explorer window.

I am having the same issues. Got a notification an hour ago saying Malicious Website Protection is disabled. Whenever I try to enable it, nothing changes. The same also happens when trying to run a HyperScan. 


It's currently running a scheduled scan, but I'll see if it even manages to complete it or if another error will occur.

Agreed... I am having the same problem after updating to

Dashboard shows that Malicious Website Protection is disabled. "Fix Now" button does nothing.




Under Stettings -> Detection and Protection and Protection, Malcious Website Protection is enabled:



And on the Taskbar pop-up Malicious Website Protection is showing as enabled.
