    I've had the pro version sense MBAM's first release but it's nice to see that a trial of the pro is now available.

    What happens at the end of the trial? Does the Pro revert to the free?

    Good question. I would assume so.

    Doesn't seem like much will change on the free version. Any changes to the GUI?

    Just installed the beta and the GUI seems the same in the free version (6613).

    I really wish they would add the ability for an administrator to block normal users for disabling protection.

    When using MBAM on-demand to right-click scan a file and you start MBAM first and update it, right click scanning won't work because it says it's already running, so you have to close it first. Perhaps there could be an option to automatically update before a right-click scan or make it possible to do a right-click scan with MBAM already running.

    I have the pro version but don't use it on my computer cause it is so heavy, I hope they do something about this soon.

    Ok, let me dumb it down for you, it slows down my computer when I have the pro running. It is heavy compared to like running SAS pro on my computer.

    I have a "Pro" license for each and I agree that SAS is the lighter of the two. (At least on my XP Pro SP3 system.)

    Unfortunately, based upon the reviews and test results I've seen, it also seems to be "lighter" in terms of detecting malware.
    (I'm hoping that the new version will make it more competitive in this realm. I still use it weekly for an on-demand scan but it would need to make a strong rebound in effectiveness for me to consider using it in real-time again.)

    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware PRO is so heavy it's replacing lead on the periodic table.

    Incremental updates are on their way. This version lays down some of the foundation and client-side infrastructure we will need.

    As for slowing the computer down -- how noticeable is the performance loss? The product should be pretty lightweight so I will have our development team look into it once we have a bit more detail!

    Very noticeable to the point I can't even use it. I've mentioned this before but MBAM interacts in some way with Base Filtering Engine service of Windows 7 and I will get near 100 percent CPU for hours at a time. Technically this could be a fault of Base Filtering Engine but without MBAM installed, I don't get the high CPU for that service.

    Finally incremental updates.. Should've been there in the first place.
    Why would you increase load on your servers and the clients' computers by downloading the whole thing every time?

    The basic points of slowing my computer down for examples are the internet takes a little longer to load up, opening up regular programs on the computer takes longer to open and start up of windows takes longer to load up with MBAM pro activated.

    I had it on with these other security programs...
    Windows 7 64-bit
    Panda Cloud Free
    Comodo firewall

    Also since the CEO is reading this topic I just wish MBAM could look like ewido antispyware in that department, man it looked fresh and up to date with the times. I hope you consider, thanks.
