    Wikipedia states:

    "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is primarily a scanner that scans and removes malicious software, including rogue security software, adware, and spyware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scans in batch mode, rather than scanning all files opened, reducing interference if another on-demand anti-malware software is also running on the computer.

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is available in both a free and a premium paid version. The free version can be manually run by the user when desired, whereas the paid version can perform scheduled scans, automatically scan files when opened, block IP addresses of malicious web sites, and scan only those services, programs and device drivers that are currently in use.

    On December 8th, 2016, Malwarebytes released version 3.0 to the general public. This includes malware, ransomware, exploit, and malicious website protection."

    Now as an Antivirus replacement, which version of Malwarebytes' GUI was your personal favourite?
    * GUI = Graphical User Interface.
    ** Optionally, if you picked Functionality over GUI - please explain with a valid reason in the comments below.

    I think Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.75 was my favorite. No bloat. No bugs. Good detection. It just worked.

    I vote for v2.x
    Since v2.2 Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has gone downward
    Now with v3.0, it's like a malware with so many obvious bugs rather than a tool to protect PC
    The devs even said that v3.0 was a beta product which was released prematurely to increase the number of testers. Therefore, we are playing with a beta product, not a reliable tool to install and use in daily basis

    Voted for version 2.1 because i used it a long time and never had problems with it.

    The problems started with the release of version 3.0 ... like nothing worked... wont update, wont open, no internet connection anymore, freezes everywhere (I like their new GUI though)

    Graphically or Functionality-wise?

    GUI-wise Version 1 is my favourite, hence one of the reasons I stopped using Malwarebytes.

    My vote goes to v1.x. To me something about the GUI just makes it look like a product that works and for that matter back then it really worked very well.

    Honestly I like the version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.x since the simplicity of the interface is shown but packed with very good detection rates against known relevant threats.

    I'm not saying Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not good at all, however being a full blown AV is something that needs an overhaul changes.

    Version 3 & I honestly wish everyone would stop hating on MalwareBytes. What the heck have they done wrong? In all of my tests since the final version of V3 it has performed extremely well & these are tests against hours-1-2 day old samples. MalwareBytes is not a buggy program at all so I really don't understand why everyone keeps saying that - start criticising Windows 10 because that is a buggy OS, MalwareBytes V3 is not a buggy program.

    I've used every version of MalwareBytes but V3 is my favourite & anyone who starts hating on MalwareBytes or spreading bug rumours without actually submitting the bugs to MalwareBytes probably just dislikes the company. Version 3 has no bloat as well so why are people complaining about that? It has URL, Detection & Prevention protection that is good quality, it has a modern GUI, it's pretty light & outperforms lots of other programs. Please stop complaining about V3 :(

    Whatever is the latest version works for me. So yep, version 3 and then 4 and so on... hehe :) Since I've a lifetime license, so I would want the development to keep continuing forever and become more better. Any bugs or less efficiency, I can adapt to that as long as they are developing.

    I like the current version; most updated is always best. (sometimes)

    newer need not always mean better :cool:

    i voted for v2 because of the clean interface & functionality too. as for v3 the interface to me seems cramped up & it detects nothing.
