    Jesus, what did you installed man?
    Those were probably PUPs and trojans and other malware.
    I seriously doubt they were "viruses".
    True viruses constitute less than 5% of malware these days.
    All viruses are malware, but not all malware is a virus.

    Hi:

    Will the separate versions still be available?
    From what it seems, eventually, NO, at least not for consumers.
    It seems that the company is reversing course on their longstanding motto of "your antivirus needs a wingman" and the true layered approach to security.
    One do-it-all software application seems more like the old "Swiss Army Knife" approach than a true layered strategy with complementary applications.
    (And, of course, there is no firewall component. So, if one uses a software firewall, one will still need WF or a 3rd-party product.)

    I won't be giving up my Kaspersky any time soon.
    And if the Malwarebytes "anti-virus" (details for which are scarce) conflicts with my foundation security suite, Kaspersky, then I may be forced to look for different anti-malware and anti-exploit applications.

    The removal of full user control over update scheduling is definitely an unwelcome regression. Combined with the relative lack of control over WU in Win10 (even in Pro), I expect that this could lead to problems during system reboots and cold starts.

    >>For now, please take note that the (pretty stable) MBAE and the (not as stable) MBARW-BETA have both been rolled into the new BETA product, MB3. As such, it would not be advisable to run it in a production environment, unless one is prepared to deal with the potential unintended consequences of such beta software.

    In any event, as usual, performance feedback (positive and negative), bug reports, and other issues probably ought to be reported in the product forum at Malwarebytes, not here, as I presume the product team will have their hands full over there. They likely cannot monitor all computer fora.

    Cheers,

    MM

    BTW, just to clarify, our "@RubberDucky" here is NOT the the Malwarebytes CEO, "@RubbeRDuckY" at the Malwarebytes forum or corporation.

    You're right there were several thousand virus bodies of maybe 120 different viruses, ESET caught the main ones that could be considered "viruses", but these were a little bit worse than your regular potentially unwanted programs or modifications. It's normal for me to come across a system that has up to 1000 virus bodies or pieces of a PUP, (or, "pieces of poop" as I refer to them ) One thing I always do is save the log file for the systems that have incredible amounts of detected files and not only files but registry entries etc. Unfortunately I didn't save a local copy this time.

    This was a system I set up two years ago on windows 8.1, The couples kid got onto the system and it took me just about four days to get rid of everything. But I am continuously grateful for MBAM, which pretty much got rid of everything else that was unwanted on the system. Sizewise it was about 700 MB worth of little files and junk that was excised- and the one thing that was remarkable was a complete replacement of Internet explorer with a virus-strewn browser. Thankfully the DISM command restored what we had been deleted.

    I simply don't trust a single AV program to get all of it which is why MBAM is always part of my toolbox. But this is something to look out for especially on systems where kids have access they'll basically just start downloading everything that they can because it says "for free", without thinking about the consequences of what these programs actually are and do. Heh.

    @OldMike65

    From the Malwarebytes boss himself:
    With the combination of our Anti-Malware ($24.95), Anti-Exploit ($24.95) and Anti-Ransomware (free, beta) technologies, we will be selling Malwarebytes 3.0 at $39.99 per computer per year, 20% less than our previous products combined and 33% less than an average traditional antivirus. As we did with our change from perpetual to subscription, we will grandfather in existing customers at their current price. We are still working out the details, but I assure you we will take care of all existing customers. As always, we will be keeping malware remediation absolutely free.
