    That offline installer is unfortunately often running behind.

    Often I see a post of a new version here, but when I download that installer I get an older version...

    Hello @XIII

    IMHO, successful efforts are being made to have the MB4_Offline and the Stub Installer versions match that day's earlier release announcement. CU 1.0.1404 MB4_Offline has certainly been an exception.

    I believe part of the challenge involves multiple Malwarebytes teams in disparate locations/time zones.

    Cheers

    Hello @Brummelchen

    The MB4_Offline currently does not match the last release announcement. However, the MB4 automatic updates and Stub Installer are current.

    Malwarebytes management has been PM'd. Thank you.

    Someone else besides me that is experiencing severe slowdowns caused by this app when backing up with Macrium reflect. I get 40-45 % less speed. That`s much.

    Without it, back to normal.

    Hello @pb1

    I'm sorry you are experiencing the slowdown. Malwarebytes staffers/devs would be interested in helping you with this issue. Please consider opening your own topic in the Malwarebytes for Windows Support Forum sub-forum.

    Thank you.

    I used their Support Tool to reinstall MB. Can anyone tell me what the point of this ad is?

    I have a (4 actually) Lifetime license(s). Why this ad??
