Hmm, did not require reboot on Xeon 32-bit using XP Pro SP3. Wonder what happened to you?

Hmm, again, but I updated two Win 7 Pro x64 systems without reboot. However, was this reboot related to the paid version (that is Malwarebytes PRO)? I have it at home so I will see. I have real-time protection disabled there, so maybe I won't see the reboot there, either.

MB Pro (paid version)

That explains it. The driver has to load on boot, so it requires a reboot to start. I do have the paid version on my own system but the real-time protection is disabled due to a conflict with AV. Still, I will be prepared for a reboot when I update from the beta version. No big deal. I reboot often enough anyway.

RE-boot required on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1.
Below,is this a "NEW" service or has it always been present with previous versions of MBAM? I can't recall.

Do you have a previous Autorun Scan Log File for comparison?

Autoruns scans can be saved as an autoruns data (.arn) file. Previously saved scan copies can be compared against current configurations [for comparison].

I noticed a WinPatrol popup about the new service but allowed it as I thought it was related to the program update.

Unfortunately, my last Autorun Scan Log File was from March 25/12...but it [the new scan] did show the new service.

Perhaps the service is related to the new "no reboot required" feature with future upgrades?

Thanks for the reply Exidor See Profile.
Unfortunately I did not keep an .arn file for comparison. Same as you, it was WinPatrol that alerted me to the new service. I wasn't sure if it was there prior to the upgrade as sometimes WinPatrol re-alerts you to something you've already accepted. I think you may be right about it having some relation to the future upgrade scenario.

I have one under services but I don't have anything under "Settings/Scheduler Settings".

Nothing from last week's preview unless they are OOTBs.

Weird that my XP's MBAM Free didn't need a reboot. My office's 64-bit W7 HPE did. Both machines had a few minutes of uptimes.

I did my update on my paid version (MBAM Pro) at home in XP SP3. It did not require a reboot, but that is because I have protection disabled due to a conflict with my AV. To test this, I re-enabled protection and the conflict was still present (system halted prior to logon). So, protection must remain disabled, at least for me and for now. The new scheduler service does not conflict, however, and is enabled automatically at boot. Did not see the GUI listed, but maybe that is only in Win 7? I thought it might show up if MBAM was loaded and running, but the GUI did not show that way either, at least in Process Hacker. Perhaps that GUI service shows only when protection is enabled, but I can't check that myself.

Anyway, other than my personal issues, the new version seems fine.

PRO is running fine on my XP SP3 box, no problems. But I have never ending update issues on my Win 7 Premium 64bit laptop. I install, uninstall and re-install the program using the methods recommended by MBAM, download the updates, run a full scan and everything's fine. Next day I turn on the laptop and although protection is enabled and working, there's no signature file to load and the update button is greyed out. Tried to download the signature file manually but it won't install. I suspect this may have something to do with MSE but I have MSE on my XP box and there's no issue there. It's not a malware issue. Driving me nuts (but I didn't have far to go).

Dustyn See Profile, some have been puzzled of the Windows Service as I've been reading elswhere.

The MBAMService in my services is set to: "Automatic (Delayed Start)".
I did not change anything in my services and this is set during installation of MBAM.

System Lookup reveals legit service.

Thanks for the reply siljaline See Profile.
But that is not the service I was discussing... it's MBAMScheduler which has an "Automatic" start: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamscheduler.exe

You're welcome for the reply, Dustyn See Profile
Based on your description, this is another service added by MBAM Pro.
If you manually edit or open services via:

services.msc

=> | run box | scroll for that item, confirm it's there, if it is, you've confirmed the item.
Full bore versions of software introduce these things and we have to manage them to the end, are they required or not.
In this case, best guess, they both are.
