    I'm a member of the forum and still can't view it. Is there a group that needs joined to view it?

    The link I posted is valid.

    I'm checking with Malwarebytes management now. Thank you for the heads up. :)

    Hello,

    In the past early preview builds were only available to "Honorary Members" (100 posts or more) and not available to general public until it went beta. This may be the case here...

    Then that's probably it. Since July 2013, zero posts.

    As this build is in a private room it shouldn't have posted at all here I think.

    I believe @puff-m-d is spot on perfectly correct...

    Unfortunately we were told specifically not to publish the installer file's download link elsewhere.

    Thank you.

    Congrats on the beta, MB... I still reckon command line switches should be high on the to-do list... does the 1.75 version or whatever it is, still support command line switches?

    I agree it looks better...but, compare the contrast in scan speed. Mine is not as good as yours.

    I run Windows 8.1+, and SSD's. Never anything less. I think it completed the scan in about 1min 54sec, 360,000 files. I only run Norton 2015 or Trend 2015, no other security products as everything else is on the gateway/router (Bit Defender, Clam, Etc)

    Better than previous one, yes it is.
    Decent? Imo, no.
    As far as I can see in the new UI, the ad remains.......

    Yes - command line switches are still supported in v1.75.0.1300 since it was released 10-April-2013.

    Command line switches will be supported in MBAM2 soon in a future release.

    "Improved scan flow – all scans now automatically check for and apply the latest database updates so you're always scanning with the latest protection. (Exception: this will not occur if you have the option to “check for updates before scanning” disabled.)"
    Finally, hope this also works on context-menu scan.

    Trying it now. I really like that it auto-updates the DB before scanning, and I like the new UI, though the scan progress screen seems slightly like a ripoff of Qihoo 360's.

    Beginning with 2.1.0, the advertising panes have been removed from all windows except an active scanning window.

    The scanning windows can now be minimized to the system's taskbar instead of the system tray.
