Malwarebytes 1.70 released

I couldn't find a topic on this and know it has been a few days sense it was released.

»www.malwarebytes.org/

I like the new system tray icon how about everyone else?

Could be bad for techs that use to tell people where to click though.

I'm still trying to figure out what it represents.

Is it a superhero's mask?

Is it a disk platter with the offending quadrant blanked out?

Is it a stylized "M"?

What the heck is it?

How come the 'update' button is greyed out on the free version? Are we not allowed the check for database updates? Noticed this on the previous version also.

I had a similar problem (and one or two others). In the end I had to uninstall the old Pro version, run mbam clean, install the new version and re-enter the license code. Now all is well.

Must be a glitch?

The current Spyware Blaster icon was vetted | voted.
It's take it or leave it. MWB is some of the best stand-alone anti-malware tool we have ever seen.

I am not crazy about the new icon as it looks too much like IE when it's running and my mate keeps trying to close it when it's scanning! But it's my favorite color. Well, one of them. It seems to be a little slower on my system than the older version. Anyone else find this?

Weird. I updated to the newest version and the updater button worked. I closed the program, reopened it and the updater button is once again greyed out, unclickable.

My vote is the stylized "M" with a pac-man taking a "byte" out of it.

Is it possible the updater button is only available when updates are?

@dtra.mil
The admin button is only grayed out when you are not running the Malwarebytes under admin account.
Malwarebytes install with Admin Priv but if you run it under standard account you can't control the update process since it's an admin lvl process.
SO if you want to run the update under Standard account then kill MalwareBytes and re-execute it with right click run as admin, type in your admin password and viola it works.

This makes sense. I always run MBAM under admin now after doing a scan in a LUA and having some false positives. It took awhile and some anxiety before I was able to sort that one out. Haven't had any problems running scans as an admin except after updating and losing my ignore list for the security center being turned off and needing to add them again.

There are some early "issues": The tools available under the More Tools tab do not work unless Internet Explorer is your default browser. From reading the MBAM forums, I guess this will be addressed in a future release.

They work fine for me and i have Firefox as my default browser. I have IE locked down tighter than a bed bugs anus.
