Anyone having problems connecting to their server to get updates?
No Dave, I don't think so...
just tried Dave and it's downloading updates now
Mine's working OK Dave...
I've been on since 5 and it's been updating OK for me...
Just updated the database now. Very quick.
My licence may have expired, anyhow I am now on Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 220.127.116.112
You need to contact the establishment you are on licence from and tell them that you will return forthwith... :BigGrin::Wink::Blush::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Strange. When I went to update it just did the database. Went to the web site and it offered me that version as a free update. Just installed it.
Just updated from Pro to Premium Dave.. no problems.. .. :Wink:

They left the gate open to get rid of him.

and proud... :wooo::wooo::wooo:
You lot pay for it? I'm on the free version, it's updating in the Faroes and a lot further to travel so must be Leicester's gone tits up. :Laughing:
The Pro or Premium version is an upgrade from the Free version
Detects and protects against malware in real-time
Blocks hacking and phishing attempts
Schedules automatic scanning
more details here https://www.malwarebytes.org/premium/
Try Spybot Search and Destroy, it is also free. The reason I like it is because all of the additional features you have to purchase in Malware are free in Spybot. Used it for years, very impressive software.
It allows for real time protection and lets you know if any processes are trying to change key system resources. IT does this via a thing called a 'tea timer' (Don't ask why) It is set up by "inoculating" your system - to use the Spybot parlance. Unless your computer is relatively new a fast don't do this as it can have negative performance issues. (Which is IT speak for slows your system down at startup and during other load events)
Spybot also has a bunch of free system performance tools which are very handy to have - again these are only available in paid for version of MalwareBytes.
I am not connected to Spybot in any way other than as a happy user for over 10 years. Both professionally and on my own computers. :thumb:
All of this is free in Spybot, and it is better software, and easier to use. :thumb:
err no it isn't..
The free version of Spybot does not have scheduled scanning
that is ONLY available in paid editions.. Nor does it do auto updates.
Home Edition allows you to automate scanning, fixing, immunization and of course updating.
I use both and find equally easy to use..

Malwarebytes vs. Spybot: Side-by-side Comparison.
Not everyone shares your faith in Spybot S&D
There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no single best anti-virus.
I use the Premium Malwarebytes. It overhauled Spybot in performance and reputation ages ago, well for me at least.
