New MBAM 1.50 difference


Recommended Posts

I have upgraded from 1.46 to 1.50 today (free versions). I have done one or two quick scans and notice that whereas v. 1.46 scanned registry entries the new version doesn't appear to do so - the sequence I have is first of all "enumerating registry objects prior to scan" when nothing seems to happen then it scans memory, autorun and filesystem objects and lastly the additional heuristic scan. Is this correct - what happens with registry objects in the new version?

Greetings :)

The registry is still scanned but this happens during the filesystem objects scan as well as the heuristics scan at the end. This multitasking is one of the things that on many systems, makes version 1.50 scan much faster than version 1.46 did even though both check the same locations and items.

I have the latest version of Malwarebytes on my Windows 7 64 bit system, and it too says "enumerating registry before scanning" -- it said that last night when I went home and it was still saying that when I came in this morning. I'm not convinced it's enumerating anything -- it appears to me that the program has frozen.

:D

What now coach?

Thanks

Dale

Please make sure that you have excluded "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe" from your other security software.

If that does not help then do the following:

Windows Vista and Windows 7:

  • Click on the Start vista-7-start.png button and select Control Panel
  • Click on Programs and Features
  • Uninstall Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Restart your computer very important
  • Download and run mbam-clean.exe from here
  • It will ask to restart your computer, please allow it to do so very important
  • After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here
    • Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via email if using the Pro version
    • Launch the program and set the Protection and Registration. Then go to the UPDATE tab if not done during installation and check for updates.
      Restart the computer again and verify that MBAM is in the task tray if using the Pro version. Now setup any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications and restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQ's here or ask and we'll explain how to do it.

If you still have issues after that, then perform a Disk Check:

Run a Disk Check on your C: drive in Windows Vista or Windws 7:

  • Click the Start vista-7-start.png button and select Computer
  • Right-click on C: and select Properties
  • Click on the Tools tab
  • Under Error-checking click the Check Now... button and click Continue at the User Account Control prompt
  • Mark the box next to Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
  • Click on the Start
  • When the message box pops up, click the Schedule disk check button and restart your computer
  • Once your computer restarts it will check the drive, don't press any keys so that it is allowed to do so

Scanman, there is nothing wrong with those scan times. The new way that Malwarebytes is working, it will do this by design, since I am not one of the developers, I can not give you the exact reasoning, but I do remember reading something about that here on the forum when we were testing the beta before it bacame public.

So not to worry.

Must be multitasking or caching, or both.
