    The Update Package Version changes on a daily basis and controlled by the Updates option under Protection Tab.

    And that option works quite well! :)

    I saw this and hoped they had fixed a problem that I had months ago before removing it - no, they havn't. MWB has picked on a safe piece of software I have an quarantined it - again. the exe file has vanished so I have to reinstall it, again. Also, for some reason, it took several email out of my inbox and put them in bin. It must have been MWB, because I was using gmail half an hour ago. Grrrrrrrrrrrr
    Why not set up an exclusion? I do it all the time for various applications, particularly a few from Nir Sofer, which get tagged by every AV out there, including MB3

    john, I tried that the last time, the damn thing ignored me. I spoke to the software producers and to MWB, they were severely at odds and MWB were threatened with action, nothing seems to have changed.

    Exclusions have never ignored me when I say them, and I have been using and ßeta testing MB since around version .6x.

    I usually do the entire folder exclusion for the folder where my NirSoft told are installed, and that works every time I have to reinstall Windows.

    Which software is it? If you mean IOBit, then yeah, I can see that. IOBit stole MBAM definitions in the past and tried to make it look like they were there own anti-malware definitions, so there is a lot of bad blood there.

    I tend to not use IOBit software for that reason, and many of us experts at the MB forums, not to mention staff and forum volunteers, will tell you the same.

    correct John, ASC ver 11. Iobit Malware Pro too now. But if bad blood between the two, why should customers suffer. I had MWB for a very long time (Pro) but have had to remove it due to this 'problem'.

    Just my opinion, but given the choice of Iobit anything and MBAM, it's not even a contest, not even close, not worth a second thought. MBAM first and always, plus Defender.

    OK, here is the thing - and please, do not take this as any sort of criticism on my part directed at you, at all.

    There was proven evidence that IOBit committed thievery in purloining MalwayreBytes AntiMalware definitions for use in their own antimalware program, and that led to bad blood. Now, MB doesn't like IOBit anything, and vice versa. But, also, to be fair, 99% of IOBit's products are surpassed by similar products from other developers (not just the antimalware, but the vast majority of all their products. TBH, I really cannot think of a single product that does its job and does it better than any comparable product on the market.

    Furthermore, if you search Google for something like "IOBit steals Malwarebytes definitions" and read, oh, say, the first 30 links, eventually, you'll get to this story:

    IObit accused of stealing from Malwarebytes | Computerworld

    Read it - it's not just about the theft.

    Then you can read this post by Marcyn, CEO of Malwarebytes, on what happened and how they detected it:

    IOBit Steals Malwarebytes Intellectual Property - Malwarebytes News - Malwarebytes Forums

    Then the response and the response to the response:

    IOBit’s Denial of Theft Unconvincing - Software - SpywareInfo Forum

    And finally, closure:

    Malwarebytes vs. IObit fiasco comes to a close | Reviews, news, tips, and tricks | dotTechdotTech

    Which is interesting in and of itself - as soon as their database stopped incorporating MBs database, their size dropped 40%. Imagine that.

    Now, after all that, if you still feel comfortable using a company's products, go right ahead. However, knowing what I know, and having been educated on all this myself, I'll respectfully decline to use anything made by IOBit.

    Considering I have a lifetime license for MBM and the competition dont offer that, I think Ill stick with MBM.

    Anything IObit has lost a place on my computers long time ago, it has so much trash and potentially dangerous stuff.
