    Good point, but many less-advanced users will not know how to verify that.
    Also, many third-party sites bundle PUPs (and worse) with the installer.
    There are "safe" places to get a file and "not so safe" places.
    As a general principle, the publisher's own site is probably the safest and most reliable.

    Historically, Malwarebytes would only attest to the safety of their installers from their own site (which, sadly is no longer an option for version 2.2.1.1043 even though it is NOT yet EOS/EOL), and from a limited number of reputable hosting sites.

    Basic users could easily be fooled into getting the file from an untrustworthy site they find on a Google search or by other means. There are always bad people willing to exploit trusting users. In time, I expect that will become more of a problem, now that the company is severely limiting user access to their own legit file.

    My post was not targeted solely to advanced/sophisticated users who know how to check an SHA/MD5, but to anyone who might read the thread.

    But, yes, your advice is sound.

    Thanks,
    MM

    Yes, that is good to know.
    With any luck, they will keep the link up for the duration of version 2 support.
    Thank you for posting it.

    But, again, basic users visiting the Malwarebytes forum or their own website or the product page may not find that link or know how to find that link or know to use THAT link, versus something else that might turn up on an internet search.

    I don't mean to split hairs or to argue.
    I merely point out that the "usual", safe places to get the MBAM2 installer (including the publisher's own product page) seem be disappearing fast.
    And it's disappointing to see that they did not reply to an inquiry from one of their own forum experts.
    There are legitimate reasons why users might need or want to reinstall or revert to 2.2.1.1043, which is NOT YET EOS/EOL.
    Other security vendors make their recent installers easy to find on their own, public downloads page. HERE is just one example. No Google search required.

    Even after v2 was released, Malwarebytes had a forum sticky and other public places to get the version 1.75 installer for a very long time. Even so, many folks fell victim to "fake" files posted on the internet.
    It is unprecedented for Malwarebytes to cleanly sweep their still-supported flagship product under the rug so quickly.
    This is especially so, since the new product does not yet seem quite "ready for prime time" (check out the pages and pages of new trouble reports at their forum).

    Thanks again for that helpful link.
    I appreciate that you posted it for us.
    I will bookmark it on all my systems.

    Cheers,
    MM

    I still have 3, but I have it disabled so it's off until I need it. I use MBAM as an on demand scanner. I did reinstall MBAE so that's running in the background again. I ran a scan with 3 & fortunately it didn't say anything about MBAE running, I thought I might get a program conflict.

    Still wondering why it would affect NoScripts function.

    Hi:

    There's little point in configuring MB3 Premium to run as MB3 Free.
    "Long run for short slide".
    It's easier and cleaner to just install the Free version.

    As for the NoScript issue, I cannot say.
    I do not see mention of that issue among the many, many others being reported.
    And I do not have a test box or VM onto which to load version 3.

    I suggest reporting it at their forum -- the devs and QA team have their hands full over there and likely do not monitor this thread for bug reports.

    Just a suggestion, as always,

    MM

    I'm not worried about , turning off MBAM makes it run normally again. Just curious behavior.

    Oh, the oddities of software
