Hi there,

I have noticed that i cannot update Mbam while running windows 7 x64 as a standard user which is NOT unusual seeing as i couldn't do it with the release version 1.44. However while using the beta 1.45 i get the following message everytime the Mbam updater tries to run and fails. This error quickly gets annoying and it would be better to just have it display in a log file rather than a big bad red box :)

I do however think it could be convenient if Mbam could update its self as a standard user. It would really save the hassle of logging out and logging in as an administrator and then logging out again and back in as a standard user.

Ah i totally misread the error box. It was on my PC when i got home from work so i presumed it was telling me the Mbam update failed. Anyhow it turns out i cannot create a scedule while logged in as a standard user.

No as that could potentially be a security risk.

I know it is, but considering 80% of the worlds computer users run as root anyway i think it could be imlemented as a feature which can be enabled by computer administrators?

Although i guess just running the program with admin rights under a standard user does the trick. I guess manual updates could propose a pretty be flaw.
