No problems here!

Just a note for others you may want to close out of the program when installing the newer version since it updates the right click options in Windows Explorer else you may have to reboot. That's what I did and didn't require a reboot.

Thanks for the new version. There is just one thing I don't like about it. I can no longer use FileASSASSIN, which used to be part of MBAM. When I now click the FileASSASSIN icon in MBAM, Internet Explorer shows me where I can download this program. First, Internet Explorer is not the browser I usually use. Why doesn't it open the browser I always use (Opera)? Second, I don't want to download FileASSASSIN as a separate program. Why is it no longer bundled with MBAM? Apart from this, the new version is great.

Unfortunately, at least for this version, we had to hard-code it to use Internet Explorer though we do plan to change that eventually in a future release so that it uses your default browser instead.

Regarding FileASSASSIN, we removed that functionality from the product directly and opted instead to provide links to it and other tools offered on our website. The built in version had to be removed so that we could implement the new layout and interface for the tab.

It is the same version as the beta, no need to download a new version if you already had the beta installed :).

I have updated to 1.70.0.1100 successfully on Windows 7 x64.

I also want to add, I absolutely love the new taskbar icon and GUI, the blue and black colors are so much nicer to look at then the red. (no offense) :)

Thank you everyone at Malwarebytes for your hard work on this new update. It looks nice and is running great along side ESET Smart Security 5.2.15.1.

Thumbs up on the new UI - the colors, the logo, etc., especially the desktop shortcut. Much better represents the excellence of what's under the hood. I really was repelled by the former blood red design.

I had the same [minor, for me] IE-defaulting gripe as user Buddel but can understand the reasoning offered in the reply by Samuel E Lindsey, Product Manager; modification can wait.

Regarding FileASSASSIN: I always have had the portable standalone version anyway! Hardly ever have had to use it, thankfully, but it's truly no inconvenience not to have a duplicate module inside of Malwarebytes.

Nice evolution on the main product.

All running well here, the news within the UI update area still references 1.65 as the latest :huh:

Upgraded both DT boxes on top of 1.65 without a problem.

It did require a reboot on both of them.

(Will do the LT tomorrow after I upgrade KIS from 2012 to 2013.)

VERY nice job, MBAM team!

Program enhancements AND a facelift! :)

PS And, yup, as craigb noted, the update tab in the GUI still announces v.1.65. ;)

Just a minor observation. The Update window, under Latest news, still refers to 1.65 version release.

I would like to clarify something about this:

3. Threats detected by the protection module are now quarantined automatically by default

and this:

7. Option to allow a threat to run temporarily (Allow Temporarily) added to filesystem protection prompts

If I were using the computer one day and Malwarebytes identified a threat, would I see prompts to temporarily allow them before Malwarebytes put them in quarantine? (I'm thinking just in case it's a false positive.)

By default the protection module now quarantines detected threats without prompting but you may disable this behavior if you wish. If the option to automatically quarantine threats is disabled, then you will be prompted prior to threat removal by the protection module and one of the available options in that prompt will be to allow the threat temporarily.

I love the new UI - good to see it finally matches the website - it always bugged me that the Application had a different look to the site!
