[ RESOLVED ] MB v4.5.20.230 - Release Notes and System Tray Behaviour


Recommended Posts

I updated to MB Premium v4.5.20.230-1.0.1868 (rel. 12-Jan-2022) today.

Shortly after updating I noticed the release notes for MB v4.5.20 had been removed from Erix's pinned topic Malwarebytes 4.5. Has the v4.5.20 rollout been paused because of a known issue?

Also, the only change for v4.5.20 under "What's New" for the release notes said "Enhanced tray behavior for left click".  However, I re-booted my system after my update to v4.5.20 and when I left-click the system tray icon all it does is open the user interface; when I right-click the system tray icon the options in the pop-up menu look identical to the v4.5.19 version.

What enhanced behaviour should we be seeing with the left click?

I also noticed that a monthly 30-day security summary was displayed the first time I opened the v4.5.20 interface after the update was applied, even though I have no detections in my Detection History and my summary is only supposed to be displayed if I had a detection in that 30-day period.  However, that glitch started with the previous v4.5.19.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance

    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.

I don't think diagnostic logs would be helpful in this case, but if anyone's interested ...

Please standby, we'll be publishing a revised version of the release notes a little later today. 

Also @lmacri thanks for the heads-up about the 30-day security summary issue. I don't recall seeing a bug filed for that but will look into it.

@lmacri

The new version just downloaded on both of my computers, so as of now the update has not been pulled.

Not sure what is going on.

Have a great day.

Regards,
Phil

Hi @H4V0C :

Thanks for your quick response.  I'll check back later for the revised release notes.

Regarding the 30-day security summary, I didn't capture a new image today when I first opened the v4.5.20 interface, but here are the two images I captured on 05-Jan-2023 after opening my MB Premium v4.5.19 interface.  Let me know if you'd like me to start a separate topic on this issue or contact support to open a bug report.

I see that revised release notes for Malwarebytes v4.5.20.230-1.0.1868 were re-posted today in Erix's pinned topic Malwarebytes 4.5 with additional details  For example, the item related to the system tray icon now says:

Quote

Tray icon - Primary click on the tray icon now launches the UI or brings it into focus. Previously a primary click opened the tray menu which was redundant since a secondary click does the same operation.

The direct download link at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb4_offline for the latest Malwarebytes v4.x full offline installer was also updated today to download mb4-setup-consumer-4.5.20.230-1.0.1868-1.0.64577.exe, so the Forum Mods can go ahead and mark this thread as RESOLVED if they wish.
