what version can I download for Windows xp?

Recommended Posts

my Malwarebytes was only running a scan for 10 seconds or so.  I removed my version and now cannot re-load a version for my computer.  It is an older computer, (windows xp).  I have a premium key and wanted to re-install a premiu version, but can't do it.

Unfortunately I don't have permissions to do that.  An admin or mod would need to do so, or the user themselves.

@exile360 hello,

I am the second asking here for the recommended Malwarebytes version for XP SP3 Professional. I was using 3.3.1.2183 for a while along with XP and Vista and it was fine but I cannot find it officially here now. The link you posted contains Malwarebytes 3.5 with "legacywos" keyword and I would like to know if it has a special meaning for a special build, or simply version name?

Currently Malwarebytes offers "mb3-setup-consumer-3.6.1.2711-1.0.519-1.0.8878" as the latest download and I am not sure which version is the best foe legacy systems like XP.

Hope you help.

Best regards.

The link that @exile360 provided is for version 3.5.1.2522, which is the final version Malwarebytes made that supports Windows XP and Windows Vista.  Database updates and maintenance upgrades that are provided now are still valid on that version of Malwarebytes as well, but there will be no further updates for the program as a whole as far as XP or Vista are concerned.  The FAQ link that was also provided goes into that decision in more detail.

Yep I found that link is the official and latest version mirror for XP/Vista, which appears to be final:

https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3_legacy

Will we able to get database definition updates even with that version for the future on XP?

Yep.  That is what the FAQ calls "protection updates" and what I referred to as "database updates".  They will keep you current against the latest threats.
