Component Update 3.6.1 v1.0.519 released for Website downloads only

Malwarebytes community, we have updated the version of the components package for our Windows 7 and later Website downloads only.

  • This new package addresses improvements to functionality for certain licensing operations.

Additionally, please be advised we're aware of a number of Windows 7 systems slowing down or freezing under certain circumstances, although we have significant resources fully committed to solve the problem as soon as possible in an upcoming release, this update is not intended to address this issue.
