Announcing the Malwarebytes 3.2 Beta

Recommended Posts


We would like to invite you to test out the latest Malwarebytes Beta for v. 3.2.1.

You can download Malwarebytes 3.2.0 Beta from this link.

Administrator privileges are required when installing Malwarebytes, either from an Admin account or from a standard user account with elevated administrator privileges.

As always we are interested in any feedback you can provide us, but this time around we have a request for some special testing specifically around upgrades.  Please see this post for more details.

Here’s the list of What’s New in Malwarebytes 3.2.0:

Performance/protective capability

  • Improved memory usage
  • Reinstalling with an older installer will no longer downgrade update packages
  • Improved self-protection module stability and resiliency
  • Numerous enhanced malware protection techniques and remediation capabilities


  • Clicking ‘Install Application Updates’ button now downloads available component updates and releases regardless of limits in place for automatic update delivery
  • Added a button to access the ‘Malwarebytes My Account’ portal from in-app My Account screen  [NOTE: clicking through via this button is still not fully functional]
  • Added new setting that allows you to opt in to automatically receive Beta component updates and full releases
  • Minor user interface redesigns, including confirmation of scan completion post-reboot

Stability/issues fixed

  • Fixed numerous problems that could occur when upgrading from earlier versions to Malwarebytes 3
  • Fixed an issue where updates would fail if attempted right after PC comes out of sleep
  • Fixed an issue where the user interface could become non-responsive if mapped drives were present
