Hi all,

 

I have used Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for years. When Malwarebytes 3 came out awhile back, there were some growing pains and I decided to stay on 2.2.1.1043. I got very busy and never upgraded. Version 2.2 seems to still be working and getting updates. I imagine upgrading would be best at this point. A few questions:

1) on my desktop I have a lifetime Premium license and on my laptop I have a 2 year subscription that expires in a few months. What is the best way for me to upgrade in terms of licenses?

2) Will I still need to run Anti-Exploit, or is that part of MB3?

3) What is the best way to do the upgrades? Do I need a clean install?

4) I use Kaspersky Total Security...will they work well together? Are people now able to just use MB3 without a virus program?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes 3 Help forum.

If you haven't done so already, please run these two tools and then attach the logs in your next reply:

NOTE: The tools and the information obtained is safe and not harmful to your privacy or your computer, please allow the programs to run if blocked by your system.

  • Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST)
    1. Download FRST and save it to your desktop
      Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit
    2. Double-click to run FRST and when the tool opens click "Yes" to the disclaimer
    3. Press the "Scan" button
    4. This will produce two files in the same location (directory) as FRST: FRST.txt and Addition.txt
      • Leave the log files in the current location, they will be automatically collected by mb-check once you complete the next set of instructions
  • MB-Check
    1. Download MB-Check and save to your desktop
    2. Double-click to run MB-Check and within a few second the command window will open, press "Enter" to accept the EULA then click "OK" 
    3. This will produce one log file on your desktop: mb-check-results.zip
      • This file will include the FRST logs generated from the previous set of instructions
      • Attach this file to your forum post by clicking on the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." or simply drag the file to the attachment area

One of our experts will be able to assist you shortly.

Your licenses you have now will work fine with version 3.

Anti-Exploit is now part of MB3 so no you will no longer need the stand alone.  Also if you have a license for Anti-Exploit, you can use that license on an install of MB3.

You do not need a clean install, you can simply download the latest version and install it right over version 2.
Download the Latest MB3 v3.3.1.2183 CU 1.0.262 from ->>RIGHT HERE<<-

MB3 should work fine with most other security products, however sometime you have to enter exclusions. With yours you will want to enter exclusions.

Please add exclusions to your Kaspersky according to this KB article: Malwarebytes KB: How-To: Malwarebytes 3 files to be set as exclusions in other security software. KB Article HERE

Also, Turn off the Advanced Disinfection option in Kaspersky

Thanks for the very clear answers! It seems like MB3 technology could one day replace standard AV, but if they work well together, and I already paid for KTS, the added layer won't hurt.

Just to clarify...

1) My lifetime license will be lifetime for MB3?

2) Is there a discount for renewal on my other license?

Your renewal will be at the lower grandfathered rate. Prices were increased Dec 2016.

I just read on a different thread that there is a fix coming shortly with  MB Kaspersky conflict, so I guess I will wait.
