[App Update] Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Version 2.0.1 Free/Premium (April 4/14)

Improvements

•Database is now updated automatically after installation
•Notifications are no longer displayed if the Dashboard is in focus to reduce redundant information
•Significantly reduced the size of all tray notifications
•Reduced the intensity of the colors used for tray notifications and status banners in the Dashboard
•Database out of date and scan has never been run notifications now reduced in severity to orange instead of red

Issues Fixed

•All scheduled scans should now run without popping up the main UI so that users are not interrupted

Not so sure that is a good idea.
Actually, IMO it is not.

Sometimes you just want to get it installed & running, updates be damned!

Having just installed it (2.x), must say, I'm not really enthralled with the UI/UX.

Dashboard:

Is mighty busy.
And includes an Ad!

Scan:

While the scan is running, ads are displayed.
If something were found, I feel the Log would be next to useless?

Settings:

Row labels I'm finding kind of hard to read?
Perhaps the colors? Perhaps the font? Or size?

Quarantine:

Mouseover does not show the underlying text.
The best you can do is to maximize the window & drag the column widths around.
There is no "Restore & Exclude" option?

Installation:

Parts, substantial parts (a copy of the installer & the defs), are installed into %SystemDrive%\ProgramData\ regardless of where you actually point the install to. Quarantine also goes there. Logs default there (but can be moved).

I would have thought better. I expect better.

Not only that, but I LIKE CONTROL over what my computer and its apps do, and that change takes some of it away from me.

It's why I also set my Windows Update to ask before download, something which I learned to do during the 'GOLDEN DAYS of DIALUP', when WU set to Auto would grind an already insanely slow connection to almost a halt.

I'll add to that that it plays well with ESET Smart Security 7.

Thanks for the update!
When I came to my computer this morning the MBAM icon was red and a dialog window was open asking me to upgrade.

At least it's in relation to MBAM. I don't really mind it myself but, I do understand that it would be nice to disable it. At least for Premium users.

It's improving. The new version fixed a couple of GUI issues that were bugging me. Hopefully they'll get it pulled together soon...

Having only had it installed a short time now, I must say its been getting on my nerves, a lot.

I had two Windows User accounts running.
So MBAM in each.

One I had turned off website blocking.

Switched to another user, open my browser (Session Restore) & immediately start getting this "xyz site has been blocked" ... Look at my MBAM icon, & it show webiste blocking is disabled. Yet more "123 has been blocked" ...

And on top of that, running with "filesystem protection" enabled, I could swear I'm seeing a decided slowdown in operations.

I don't recall seeing anything like that with the 1.x version (but its been a long time since I've run it in realtime mode).

I'll have to pay more attention, but my first look isn't very favorable.

I have to agree, sad to say. I've always loverd this program, but this new one is questionable, now that I've had it running for a bit.

I have had some definite slowdown problems with the new version.

Found this post today and decided to switch back to the last version for awhile. Things got back to normal when I did.
