    On two laptops: MB3 3.1.2.1733 Application>'Install Application Updates' still shows 'No updates are available'.

    But update is offered by Ninite Updater, and that worked.

    That button and automatic program updates never worked for as far as I can remember. Hopefully fixed:
    *And the installer still doesn't like RAMDisk TEMP directories... Just great.

    It did work for me last time, on one machine. But I think they stagger availability, presumably to reduce load on their servers.

    The program updates button is supposed to over-ride any staged automatic updates in version 3.2.2, so in future clicking the button should work.

    Smooth until you read Terms of Service.

    What's wrong with the terms of service?

    I'm interested in hearing this too.

    Here's a link to their TOS if anyone wants to check for themselves.

    The first time you read a TOS you feel like you have been pwned, until you realize they are mostly all written that way ...

    Why? Just like Windows XP people don't want to give this old stuff up.

    Hello,

    Malwarebytes version 3.2.2.2029 has been released and is available for download.
    As of this posting I could not find any announcement or release notes and do not know if it is available via the internal updater or only by installing "over the top"...

    It would be good to read the Release Notes. I can't even see any mention on the MB forums about this update yet.

    For the very first time since the first public beta of MB 3.x I successfully updated over the top of the previous version. Yay!

    Note: I no longer have VoodooShield installed on my machines. Coincidence?

    Hello @Krusty,

    You are most welcome ;) ...
    I checked out that post and link earlier also and noticed the same thing. However that post is from August 22 when the original 3.2.2.xxxx was released and the link just takes you to the main website link where the most recent version of Malwarebytes is downloaded from...
