Since Malwarebytes 3 was released on December 8, 2016, users of MBAM 2 who were experiencing issues with Malwarebytes 3 have had the opportunity to revert back to MBAM2 and/or report their issues to the Malwarebytes Forum for investigation.
However, today it is End of Life for MBAM 2, and due time for upgrading to Malwarebytes 3.
What if I decide not to upgrade to Malwarebytes 3.0?
Per our new Lifecycle Policy that will go into effect on the Malwarebytes 3.0 GA date, Consumer versions of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit will reach End of Sale and End of Maintenance as of the Malwarebytes 3.0 GA date. This means we will no longer sell or renew these versions, and we are not planning to release any more software updates. Technical support will be limited to supporting existing functionality as of that date. End of Life for these versions will be exactly 6 months from the Malwarebytes 3.0 GA date. Users may choose not to upgrade and continue to use older versions after the End of Life date if they wish, but they do so at their own risk, since we can’t guarantee that ongoing protection updates will be available.
Please see malwarebytes.com/support/lifecycle for more details.
You can download Malwarebytes 3.0 from either Bleeping Computer or Malwarebytes.
But before you install, please uninstall MBAM 2.0 from Programs and Features and afterwards optionally run the new Malwarebytes Clean Uninstall Tool from either Bleeping Computer or Malwarebytes.
And in the event that you experience any trouble, then make sure to try the above-mentioned tool.
Note: It is recommended that you backup or obtain the licensing information before running the tool in order to restore the paid (Premium) version.
I wish everyone good luck with the upgrade!
Thank you very much in advance!
