A portable version
Posted 03 August 2011 - 04:23 PM
This has been suggested several times before and we currently have no plans that I'm aware of for creating a portable version. Thanks for the suggestion though .

I could see such a tool being useful for repair techs, but not so much for forum use etc., of course that's just my opinion.

If this version is available it will be up to date? Right? Or we will have updated it the usual way?

One thing to consider is Mbam uses driver technology. In a portable environment, this probably will not work properly for complete removal. Plus what would happen with quaritine and logs getting mixed from multiple systems.
Could you not set it to delete instead of quarantine? Plus I know several repair shops that download tools like ComboFix and then delete if after they use it. What makes you think they wouldn't just download a new version of Malwarebytes every time they use it?

Free use is only for consumer, home users not any type of business. All types of business use require proper licensing.
We put a lot of time, effort, and money into providing what we believe is an excellent tool to assist in detection and removal of malware. We provide unlimited free use for consumer, home users.

No that's against the law and maybe subject to black listing if they key is known.
I'm not a staff member just another Malwarebytes' user.

Having MBAM as a portable version would only serve to cut into their profits, and I feel that it's only fair that they should be paid, should the company decides to market a portable version. In other words, market it as a technician's tool, & charge for it. Because if not, very few users would pay for MBAM any longer, and why not, when one can carry it on a flash drive in their pocket?
I've been using MBAM for at least 4 years, and there's no tool like it. I like it so much that when Newegg offered it for $14.99, I had to take it. Indecision caused me to miss out on the previous promo, when I decided a couple of hours later to buy it, it was sold out. I didn't make the same mistake the second time, I grabbed it for my notebook.
MBAM works well with all AV/IS packages that I've used, whether it was the free or paid versions. The really good thing that I love about MBAM is that the program blocks access to known malware sites. Even with careful computing, one can run across a malware laden site, waiting to steal everything that one has.
MBAM + SAS + ESET Smart Security = a clean computer!
