New version of MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
« on: December 30, 2009, 09:46:35 PM »
There's a new version of MBAM, version 1.43, just released today.
Detail and download link here http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php

This version is in the main a maintenance & bugfix release.
My suggestion if you have MBAM installed on your system, is to a) de-install the one you have,
b) logoff and logon for a fresh start
c) get and setup the new version.

Some benefit from uninstalling the current version first Maurice? Just wondering cause I noticed mine was downloaded automatically yesterday and things went fine...haven't noticed anything out of order. Did I miss some directive or something? Are some folks having problems with the install under certain circumstances that you know of?

I was super-conservative in my approach and I suppose that was because I had the beta version earlier.
You'll be fine and do fine with update over prior version.   ;)

You're welcome.

To 1972vet:
I've seen some cases where a few have issues of the update not completely succeeding (most likely due to other underlying issues) or a problem with not getting MBAM to auto-start with Windows.
And btw, no, you did not miss any directives. ;)
You can see some in the General forum at MalwareBytes'
