Time to move on...

Recommended Posts

Ever since I purchased this program almost a year ago, it has served me very well. Easy to use, intuitive and a great value.

Then along came version 1.45, and its evil twin, version 1.46.

Since that time I have seen my system slow to a virtual crawl a very large percentage of the time.

I have also had to turn off my firewall to do any updating since I always received the following error message...

MBAM ERROR UPDATING (122,0 MultiBytetoWide char)

The data area passed to a system call is too small.

I have tried every workaround that has been suggested by the great people and the helpful support people on this forum.

I have done reinstalls.

I have scanned, scanned and scanned for viruses, etc.

I have reconfigured firewalls and anti-virus programs. (I use CA Security Center from Time/warner BTW)

The only thing that has ever returned my system to normal is to just turn off Malwarebytes Anti-Malware all together.

I really think the best thing for me to do now is to just uninstall Malwarebytes, find another (second rate) anti-malware program that works with my configuration, and wait until the next version (or two) is released. I am really hopeful that this problem, which many people seem to be having with many different anti-virus configurations, will be sorted out very soon.

Good luck to everyone working on this problem, but for now I have to give up and go back to having a productive computer.

I hope that I don't sound like I am bitching. Things like this happen with software and I have always been happy before with Malwarebytes before.

Its just that I need my computer back now.

I'll keep my eye on this forum and look forward to version 1.47. Hope that it will be sooner rather than later.
