System requirements of 2.2.0 - Can I upgrade to it

Recommended Posts

I am not very computer literate and would appreciate some advice so please forgive the question.


I am using am 8 year old computer running XP Pro 32 bit with SP3.


My computer a Dell Inspiron I6440 has


Intel® CPU  T2130 @ 1.86GHz 

T1.58 Ghz

1.99GB of RAM


I don't know if this means my computer will run the latest version of Malwarebytes or not. I currently have paid for version


I can see that the hardware requirements for 2.2.0 are:

2048 MB RAM (64-bit OS), 1024 MB RAM (32-bit OS, except 256 MB for Windows XP)
800 MHz CPU or faster, with SSE2 technology.
20MB of free hard disk space


But I don't know how to relate this to my computer.


I know this is a stupid question but as I don't know even what SSE2 technology is I am rather confused.


Can I safetly upgrade or should I stay with my current version please.

Thank you.  It is semi-compatible.  The problem is Windows XP went End of Life ( EoL ) a year and a half ago and Malwarebytes does its best to stay compatible with it.  Most use MBAM, in general, successfully on Windows XP 32bit..  Some have older CPUs ( not your T2130 CPU ) who have to apply a special patch.


Your system is compatible with MBAM 2.2.x but I think you should think about replacing it.
