    Can a MBAM rep tell us more about this?

    Is this an evolution of an existing capability, or is this a whole new thing?

    But this is why I'm a big fan of MBAM. Continuous product development and improvement.

    MBAM is a winner.

    Under the hood there is new technology that looks at the way files enter a system and can recognize exploit born infections easier.

    MBAR is still a stand-alone tool (and still beta)
    Chameleon was already part of MBAM

    Problem here. It will not load at start up. I am unable to manually turn on Protection. I have a license. No luck with reboot, different download site or safe mode o_O

    -I know that MBAR is still a stand-alone tool in Beta.
    But they added to the MBAM Tool section.

    -As far as for Chameleon, was is in the MBAM 1.65 Tool section?
    No, it wasn't (as the Screen-Shot shows).

    Re: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.70 BETA Released

    What you see in the More Tools tab are these links:

    hxxp://www.malwarebytes.org/products/chameleon
    hxxp://www.malwarebytes.org/products/fileassassin
    hxxp://www.malwarebytes.org/products/mbar
    hxxp://www.malwarebytes.org/products/startuplite

    In MBAM 1.65 and earlier Fileassassin could run from within MBAM
    Chameleon already exists as part of MBAM for sometime and could run from command line or via explorer
    Startuplite exists for some time as well as a standalone tool
    MBAR is a also a standalone (still beta)tool since feb. 2012

    You can't run those four tools from within MBAM (at the moment)

    By the way there is also another tool not mentioned: mbamclean
