Thanks Tony - uninstalled, reboot and then fresh install from a new download and that worked. I had installed v2 over v1 and apparently that was the problem. Right-click scanning of a file folder with 2 files took 42 seconds, most of it in the pre-scan. I revised my post on MBAM forum to reflect above info.
Some guidelines set out by the MBAM Team in the event you want a clean reinstallation. Emphasis here would be retaining your registration information that was obtained for those running the trial.
You're very welcome. That said, I installed v2 over v1 myself as well, and that went without a hitch. MBAM doesn't advise against it either.
I had a feeling that it was probably indeed due to a partially botched install.
Hi G1111, Glad you got it sorted.
Thanks for that. Will keep for future rerference.
You're welcome. I did install the v2 (alpha) over top of the v1 but later decided to do a fresh install in lieu of banging the alpha build over top. YMMV ...
I installed over the top, also. I had a hiccup with my install which I reported in the Malwarebytes forum.
I run the gamut of MBAM software products.
I skimmed through the tread, and maybe I missed it. When does this beta open up to use non-special members?
Thank you *ALL* for the amazing feedback, we're taking it back to the team. We've still got a ton of work to do to get this launched next year and this is definitely helping.
We should have an open beta sometime in January. Right now the team is taking a breather and enjoying their time with family over the Holidays . That being said, I've had to rip a few away from their keyboards ...
I don't know if you had thought of it but...
Suggestion: Release the Open Beta (or Stable) on Jan 21 2014 as a celebration for MBAM 6th anniversary.
BTW, happy holidays
I expect to see the release of v3 in early 2020.
That is what I call 'thinking ahead'. LOL!
Are you planning to look the other way with support for XP in MBAM v.2?
While I can't speak for the MBAM Team • A Year From Now Support for Windows XP Ends, Now What? • http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/lifecycle
Because of Microsoft's end-of-life of XP, we are going to be needed more than ever. We will continue XP support for quite some time.
I saw malwarebytes at my local best buy. They were selling the retail box with the 3pc and 1 year.
just thought id share.
Two in combo...
and don't get confused and download this MBAM 2.00 instead!!!!!

Good to know MBAM Free will be kept as it is.
Does it bring anything new in terms of protection, detection?
MBAR now embedded in the MBAM scan is one of the notable features with regards to detection.
Let's hope MBAE will become part of Pro version as well.
I agree, MBAM 2 needs something else that just the addition of MBAR.
Well aware of XP-iration. SysReq for MBAM presently is XP SP2 which I'm planning on going back to simply because SP3 actually makes XP more vulnerable.
