    The Beta version crashed today during an update. Here is the work around.

    Also to reinstall use this procedure:

    If you continue to have problems, then uninstall Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, remove the folder C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for XP users), reinstall Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and then update your database and it should now work correctly.

    I was wondering what was going on.
    All fixed up! Thanks for the heads up!

    For those that were Beta testing and have 2.00.0.1000 RC-1 the final release is identical per MBAM. I also compared the hash on the install files and they are the same. Here is a list of the Known Issues:

    https://forums.malwarebytes.org/inde...owtopic=143890

    The Scan names have changed:

    1.75 ------------------ 2.0

    Flash Scan ---------- Hyper Scan
    Quick Scan --------- Thread Scan
    Full Scan ----------- Custom Scan

    A rootkit scan option has been added to all these scans but is off by default. There is a problem running the Custom Scan with rootkit selected as it can hang and lock up MBAM. The other scans work great with rootkit option selected.

    Also on the Advance Settings if you click on Enable Self Protection Module it will take a few seconds for the click mark to show as it is turning on Charmeleon service and waiting for it to start.

    I have been running it for the last 2 weeks on my 7 and 8.1 system and runs great.

    MBAB 2 comes with Chameleon and on 8.1 there is an icon on the Start menu. When opened it shows 13 choices. They all run the same program but the names have been changed on each one to fool any malware.
