    I still find the webfilter way too buggy for a final release. I have to repeatedly re-allow websites. Like the old version, way too sensitive.

    On release build 2.00.0.504 it's nice to be able to look at the Application Log applet to view what's been going on of late.

    I miss the notification area icon when the database is refreshed.

    ESET screen capture used as an example will show what is on my wishlist of items added back at a later date.

    For a second time on this WinXP system, I've had MBAM2 boot-up with Website Protection DISabled... and when I click on FIX, it tries, but can't. Usually a reboot fixes this.
    (Note: This used to happen occasionally on this XP system when using MBAM 1.x )

    Relevant lines from Application log are:

    Protection, 3/6/2014 8:31:29 PM, SYSTEM, xxx-xxx, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Starting,
    Protection, 3/6/2014 8:31:37 PM, SYSTEM, xxx-xxx, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Failed,
    Error, 3/6/2014 8:31:37 PM, SYSTEM, xxx-xxx, Protection, PfBindInterfaceToIPAddress, 87,

    Protection, 3/6/2014 8:32:03 PM, SYSTEM, xxx-xxx, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Starting,
    Protection, 3/6/2014 8:32:03 PM, SYSTEM, xxx-xxx, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Failed,
    Error, 3/6/2014 8:32:03 PM, SYSTEM, xxx-xxx, Protection, PfMakeLog, 85,

    This is getting to my nerves. Unnecessarily adds huge registry entries each time I run a scan. Does anyone see this problem ? Moreover these files are locked. Can't delete without using unlocker.

    Hello KaptainBug:

    With little doubt this happens because of the changes brought about by the use of MBAM2 beta. The MBAM2 developers probably needed this to accommodate the major improvements and/or to assist them during the beta testing phase.

    Your OS and mine are not physically identical, but my W7 Pro x64 values are quite similar to yours.

    IMHO, none of what you are seeing should be at all worrisome to the average beta phase tester.

    HTH :)

    Thanks. I am aware that this is beta program but wanted to confirm with others if they are experiencing the same.

    This occurs because Malwarebytes Anti-Malware now scans all user registry hives on the system for malware in each scan, including those of offline users and removes any threats it finds in them, not just those of the current user. In previous versions it only scanned the machine hive (HKLM) and the current user's hive (HKCU) so that threats loading from and infecting other user accounts would have had their registry components missed.

    Once the scan completes, those files should be removed automatically. If they are not, please let us know as that is definitely a bug. They cannot be removed during the scan because Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has them loaded and is actively scanning them.

    Thank you for the response. Yes they stay in Program Data folder after the scan completes. And I don't even run the realtime protection, still when I try to delete it normally it says the file is in use by system.

    Just did a scan with the new RC, those files disappeared after the scan was done.

    Are they still there even after you've dealt with any detections from the scan? If so or if nothing was detected, are they still there once you click on Main Menu in the scan results screen on the Scan tab?

    I still see the problem in my system even with the latest version released today. There were no threats detected and the registry values/files in program data remained even after reboot. I just sent the logs from dds.scr to MBAM staff who PM'ed me.
